500th EDITION

It’s not often that a newspaper can make its own front page headlines, but we thought that this ‘five century’ milestone is one worth shouting about, especially as the growth (and indeed survival) of this community newspaper really has been a community effort. Some locals may well be able to cast their minds back to […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]
