The last remaining two gravel roads - Galjoen and Perlemoen Streets - in Sandbaai have been tarred. It took half a century to ensure that all the roads in Sandbaai are tarred. Lenie van Wyk, whose late husband Gideon was an Overstrand Mayor many years ago, was invited to cut the ribbon.

She was also a committee member for Sandbaai up to 2016, and put much effort in to raising funding to tar all the streets in this neigbourhood.

There to celebrate the occasion were Ward 7 Committee members and family and friends as well as the responsible municipal officials. 

Ward 7 Councillor, David Botha, said that the Tekkies Poel parking area at the very southern end of Main Road will be completed by the end of the year.

The area between the Cenotaph War Memorial and Gearing’s Point at the Old Harbour in Hermanus, seems to be the dumping site of choice these days.

Household garbage was cleared from this popular tourism area earlier in the week.

Please, THINK BEFORE YOU DUMP. Let’s keep our neighbourhoods clean, green, safe and healthy.

The problem is, however, not limited to this area. 

Solid waste officials said littering and illegal dumping of garden and household refuse happens in many areas of the Municipality and is difficult to enforce “unless we catch somebody in the act”.

Ward 3 Councillor Kari Brice and Overstrand’s horticulturist Lauren Rainbird, as well as Hermanus residents Melanie Moore, Carol Carver and Gibson Kadango, celebrated Arbour Month with the planting of three White Pear trees (Apodytes Dimidiata) at the Hermanus Cemetery recently.

Melanie Moore and her family partnered with the Overstrand Municipality several years ago, to beautify the cemetery, which includes beautifying the unmarked graves and planting trees.

”Heartfelt appreciation is extended to Melanie for highlighting the plight of the Hermanus Cemetery and not just bringing it to my attention, but also being instrumental in creating an extremely successful public-private working relationship,” said Cllr Brice.
