SEDGEFIELDERS WALK FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

In the true community spirit that has become the hallmark for Sedgefield, the turnout for this year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Walk was brilliant – in fact brilliantly pink if the truth be told. We are still awaiting for the total tally of entries to come from the CANSA crew, but any passers-by will surely attest to the […]

LIONS BEERFEST & BRAAI A GREAT SUCCESS

The inaugural Sedgefield Lions  Beer and Braaifest took place on Heritage Day (Saturday 24 September) and certainly was a roaring success! Thirty teams competed for the fantastic first prize – a state of the art stainless steel gas-braai with enough bells and whistles for even the most passionate ‘braai-master’, whilst others chose to come down to the […]

POWER TO THE PEOPLE

It was an emotional time at Die Gaatjie, Smutsville earlier today (22 September), when some households got to experience electricity for the first time. Resident John Hardnick was brought to tears as he flicked the switch on and his small home was bathed in light, with Mayor Eleanore Bouw-Spies and Ward 1 Councillor Levael Davis applauding excitedly as […]

MASITHANDANE TURNS 10

Sedgefield’s biggest charity organisation has hit the landmark of ten years, and the positive impact this wonderful enterprise has had (and continues to have) on the community surely proves that they have got the recipe right. Their celebration of this decade of service takes place this Friday – 23 September – from 9.30 onwards (see […]

C.O.P ISSUES CRIME ALERT

The following is a warning from Community Orientated Policing (COP). This past week has seen a sudden spike in burglaries throughout Sedgefield. In fact we have not seen such activity for a very long time. Should this trend continue, we will definitely be on par with crime that occurred back in 2009/2010 (according to figures gathered […]

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

With such feelings about the continued problem of dangerously poor service from SAPS, simply due to lack of manpower and other resources for Sedgefield and surrounding areas, the local Ratepayers, Community Orientated Policing and other role-players in the crime protection field have taken the bull by the horns and asked for answers at provincial level, […]

SEDGE MELODRAMA HITS THE STAGE

Last night saw the long awaited opening of one of Sedgefield’s favourite shows – The Melodrama – or ‘Melo-Mix’ as the 2016 edition has been billed. Judging by the reaction of the audience on preview night (when the elderly residents from Sedgefield and Smutsville were treated to a sneak preview) ticket holders will be in […]

MAN SIGNS AWAY FREEDOM

A man who burgled his employer’s house on The Island and left a threatening note was obviously so impressed with his work that he signed it. This eventually led to his undoing. On Saturday 20 August Johan Lombard was at home on Lorraine Street, The Island, having lunch with his family. He hadn’t been inside […]

IT’S OFFICIAL – DA TO GOVERN KNYSNA

With a coalition agreement with Ward 4 Independent Councillor Velile Waxa, the Democratic Alliance (DA) has once again secured control of the Greater Knysna Municipality. This was made public at the inaugural Council Meeting held at Council Chambers on Monday 15 August.  Good news for Sedgefield is that both the village’s ward Councillors – Levael Davis (Ward […]

It is believed that fires started in the bushes during Berg winds and in the heat of the wind fires spread rapidly threatening properties and homes. NSRI Wilderness volunteers […]
