On 24 April 2014, Mayor Nicolette Botha-Guthrie of the Overstrand Municipality visited Camphill and care centres in the Hermanus area.

Proceeds from the Mayoral Ball were used to buy much needed items for the residents of Camphill farm.   During December 2013, the Mayor visited all five the houses on the farm, where she was met by the house managers and the needs were pointed out to her.
Although, due to financial constraints, she could not provide in all the needs, pots, bedding and toweling were bought and delivered to the residents.    The gift parcels were received by Anne Clark, Elma Young and Jacky, as well as 91 year-old Irma Roehling who celebrated her birthday on Freedom Day, the 27th of April.

Overstrand Municipality will implement level 1B water restrictions from 1 March 2018 in the Greater Hermanus area (i.e. from Benguela Cove to Voëlklip).

Water tariffs will only be increased once the level of the De Bos Dam drops below 40%.

De Bos Dam is currently at 46,5%.

Water sources in the other areas of the municipality are still at satisfactory levels, and residents can still enjoy a breather on water restrictions.

Restrictions include

• No washing of vehicles with any hose will be permitted. This means washing of vehicles and boats are only allowed if a bucket and cloth are used. 

    - This is not applicable to commercial car wash industries.
• No washing or hosing down of hard-surfaced or paved areas with municipal drinking water is allowed.
