Tuning In: Community security is key

Thank you to the Saps reservists who currently patrol Pennington on a 24/7 basis, and to the two Saps reservists on bicycle patrol.

JANET Kolle of Pennington Crime Watch reports that along with the seasonal influx of visitors our area, unfortunately, experiences a corresponding influx of criminal opportunists. Thank you to the Saps reservists who currently patrol Pennington on a 24/7 basis, and to the two Saps reservists on bicycle patrol.

A reminder that Pennington is still in a position to pay a stipend to the SAPS reservists to retain their presence, which together with the volunteer patrollers makes a meaningful difference to safety in our area.

Last week their quick response averted two potentially dangerous situations for community members. In both cases waiting for assistance from further afield could have resulted in a very different outcome.

A reminder that none of this would be possible without the contributions from the community, so please keep the membership forms rolling in. The monthly contribution is R150 per household. For any queries please contact the PCW secretary Jayne Leech at 063-4745012. Membership forms can be downloaded at https://penningtoncw.co.za/ and emailed to secretary.pcw@gmail.com.The PCW annual general meeting is scheduled to take place at the Pennington Methodist Church on Wednesday, May 15 at 5.30pm. All members of the community are invited to attend.

Once again grateful thanks to Lesley Stephenson for her kind donation of a packet of cat food for the stray cats.

The Pennington Market will be held at Relton Hall, Pennington on Saturday, April 20.

Thank you to the organisation who started the clean up of verges in and around Dolphin Drive, Pennington. A job well done.
