Nuusbrief 2014


Dear Residents and Property Owners,

 

We would like to share some thoughts with you at the outset of 2014, after two years as the Leisure Bay and Glenmore Neighbourhood Watch.

 

The teething problems seem to have been overcome and this will make planning a lot easier.  Our SAPS reservists have also settled in efficiently and are doing an excellent job in the village.   Your LBNW committee is always on duty, doing patrols in the streets at night (in our own vehicles at all hours of the night) and monitoring via radio at all times, day and night.  This committee remains passionate about fighting crime and we are pleased with what we have achieved in the last two years.  (The committee’s petrol and telephone bills are not paid by LBNW and time cannot be measured in rands and cents.)

 

  • Our aim for 2014 is to encourage residents to consider purchasing radios, which help con siderably, being the extra eyes and ears.
  • We would also like to purchase a vehicle for patrolling.  The golf cart has been a success but we feel a vehicle with better ground clearance will be of greater use, because of the state of our roads. (more about this later on)
  • Our budget is attached and from this you will see that funds are a problem.  We appeal to residents and property owners, to deposit funds you wish to be allocated to Security and Safety directly into the LBNW Bank Account . We must be financially secure to give you the best possible service, and we cannot operate efficiently if we have to rely on LBRA dividing up the pie.

In response to the LBRA latest newsletter, we need to set a few facts straight.

 

 

Leisure Bay Sector Policing area is from ”river to river” that being TO Strand to the portion of Glenmore up to the Thongazi River, between the R61 Main Road and the ocean. It is thus impractical for money to be spent only in Leisure Bay as Glenmore is part of the sector. We also have a good number of contributors in Glenmore. If we had to cut Glenmore out, how should we inform the criminals where the boundary is?

We hope this will put the situation in perspective and residents can be rest assured that your contributions to LBNW are being spent where it matters most – Security and Safety

 

We as the LBNW committee are not subservient to LBRA; we only have the interest of residents and property owners at heart, hence our request for your support.  LBRA has an important function to perform, that being the state of our village, roads and beaches and rates related matters.  LBNW will handle all security matters as we have for the past two years, and trust you will support the fight against crime in our village

 

Regards,

LBNW Chairman and Committee
