The Far South Peninsula Community Forum (FSPCF) is holding a Public Meeting on Traffic and Transport on Wednesday, 8 May 2013, 18h00 – 19h30 in the Fish Hoek Civic Centre. City, Provincial and Metrorail officials, among other transport providers, will be invited to come and explain to the public what they propose to do to alleviate the worsening transport situation in our area. This is an opportunity to let them know our concerns, and to suggest solutions to these officials.
The FSPCF is inviting everyone to attend this meeting. Also, before the meeting, all are encouraged to email their key concerns/issues and suggest solutions to Trafficsouth19 [at] gmail [dot] com. Those who do not have email, can leave their input at their local library. The FSPCF will collate these inputs and present them to the authorities on 8 May.
Encourage friends and neighbours to attend the Traffic and Transport Public Meeting. It is our opportunity to express our deep concerns to often-distant officials and politicians.
For the records, my cottage, which backs on to the mountain, has on two occasions, been a target by intruders in the last month. I was lucky the first time, My little dog became aware of their presence outside and growled and frightened him away. I phoned the police and they arrived within minutes armed with torches and searched the property thoroughly. A few days after that, during the. day, my dogs started barking excitedly at something on the mountain. I saw two men crawling in the bushes on the other side of my fence. Once again I phoned the police and they were there within minutes. I am worried these people are living on the mountain which is a nature reserve. Last night, at about 11 pm I was in bed and heard a noise went to investigate and saw a black man at my window jump down and disappear into the darkness. I phoned the police who arrived within minutes and they saw that he had been standing on a pot plant at my window and had already broken the pane.
Now I am really worried. Any suggestions to offer, dear neighbors. Perhaps a sensor on the fence would help, before they touch the house.
Thanks for being there for us. Our police are very caring and I am so grateful for their prompt arrival and action.
