This is simply a friendly newsletter from the new Cape St Francis Civics Committee, explaining who we are, what our goals are, and how we plan to make our village better while still keeping on track with the tried and tested ‘keep it green, keep it clean, keep it small' ideology.
The new Cape St Francis Committee is thus:
Chairperson: Dane Shaw
Vice Chairperson/Communications: Craig Jarvis
Treasurer: Jal Rigaard
Secretary: Hayden Holmes
Membership: Antoinette Grundling
Matie Du Toit
Jade Dace has been co-opted to help with secretarial duties and minutes.
"I would like to thank Trudi as the outgoing chairperson for all that she has done, and I would like to thank the committee for giving me the opportunity to be chairperson. We have a great team and I look forward to working with them and to continue with the project-based formula that Civics works on. Lastly, thank you to all Civics members for your membership. Without you, none of the projects we have highlighted would be possible."
We as the incoming committee would too like to to thank the full outgoing committee of Trudi Malan, Lois Fox and Louw Jordaan. As chairperson, Trudi worked hard for many years and faced many challenges along the way, but managed to steer our little village on an even course and for that we thank her profusely. We would also like to thank her for her ongoing commitment to the Thyspunt Alliance and the preservation of that pristine part of our coastline.
Trudi is not going anywhere and is helping the incoming committee whenever she can. We would also like to thank Antoinette Grundling for holding steadfast and being prepared to work with this inexperienced but extremely motivated new committee.
We are going to continue with the good work of Trudi and her committee ideology of working on a project-based system as opposed to a reactive or police system. Our macro projects are:
1) looking after the beach and amenities thereof,
2) village security,
3) signage and sign posts in the village,
4) traffic control/dampening in hotspots, being at the village centre, as well as at the Resort/Rock Lily downhill, and
5) ongoing Civics membership drive, communication, and synergy opportunities with FOSTER and Seal Point Boardriders Surf Club.
Please feel free to communicate on the email account. It’s not really meant to be an outlet to release, vent or complain but more a portal for the sharing of ideas, encouragement, possible advice and strategies on how to keep our village as cool and as unique as it is.
We have also opted for consistent and open communication. Expect more of these newsletters.
Looking forward to hearing from you all.
Vice Chairperson/Communications: Cape St Francis Civics
