SEDGEFIELD MEETS WITH SAPS

Last night’s public meeting with Knysna’s SAPS leadership representatives and those of Knysna CPF, held at the Smutsville Community Hall, could only be described as frustrating. Both because of the low turnout of community members, and because Sedgefield is still no closer to getting an answer to the burning question – when will it be […]

DEMI-LEIGH, OUR MISS SA SEMI FINALIST

Our very own Demi-Leigh Nel Peters has been selected as one of the 26 Miss South Africa 2017 semi-finalists. This was announced at at an event hosted at the Maslow Hotel in Sandton City, Jo’burg. This former (2009) Head Girl of Laerskool Sedgefield Primary has gone from strength to strength in her modelling career over […]

ANOTHER FIRE IN WILDERNESS

Many local residents will be wondering about the noise of emergency vehicles and helicopters heading in the Wilderness direction earlier today. It seems that only weeks after the fire in the Lakes area destroyed several homes, another was started there – once again in the exceptionally dry reeds at the water’s edge, this time towards Ebb and Flow. […]

OCEANS 11 TAKES THE CUP

Congratulations to local soccer lads from the Oceans 11 team who outplayed George All-Stars yesterday afternoon to win the Sedgefield Soccer Tournament, facilitated by Bongani Dyani and sponsored by Engen Garage.

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, […]
