    Local attractions shine

    Local tourist attractions enjoyed the spot-

    light when members of the Overstrand

    Tourism Advisory Committee (OTAC) un-

    dertook an educational tour of the Whale

    Coast last week.

    TheOTACwas recently establishedwith the

    aim of marketing the region. The committee

    consists of tourism and marketing manager

    Sun Greeff, five elected members out of the

    Overstrand area, the chairpersons of the five

    bureaux, the councillor responsible for tour-

    ism, the local economic development director

    and the Overstrand municipal manager. The

    mayor of the Overstrand, Nicolette Botha-

    Guthrie, is also on the committee.

    The first legof the touron28August included

    HangklipKleinmond and Hermanus. Gans-

    baai and Stanfordwere visited amonth before,

    on24July.The tourismbureaumanagerswere

    responsible for setting out the itinerary of the

    tour, with the idea being to give the OTACs

    membersanoverviewof theareas attractions.

    Some of the points of interest visited in the

    greater HangklipKleinmond area were the

    boardwalk and bird hide at Rooisand Nature

    Reserve; the Kleinmond Blue Flag beach,

    where the group enjoyed coffee paired with

    Bettys Bays Gaboli chocolates at Sandown

    Blues Restaurant; theAfrican PenguinColony

    at Stony Point; and theHarold Porter National

    Botanical Garden (both also in Bettys Bay).

    Theyalsovisited theneweco-friendlycabins

    atOudeboschintheKogelbergNatureReserve,

    followed by a seafood lunch at The Shellfish

    Bar paired with wines from Rivendell Estate.

    A visit to the HangklipKleinmond Tourism

    Bureau in Kleinmonds Harbour Road for a li-

    queur tasting by Fynbos Enterprises con-

    cluded the tour. Beautiful fynbos posies, spon-

    sored by Cup a Caf and Colourful Events, in

    a recycled paper bag by Pampiri Indaba, made

    for a fitting memento of a successful day.

    See the photos on page 2.

    Chloe Sleenhof, Josephine Carr and Lucy Pringle were overjoyed when the sun came

    out on spring day. They went for a gallop through the vineyards at Rivendell Estate,

    which was dolled up in pink flowers for the Botriviera Spring Weekend. See more

    Waterbeperkings eers

    iets van die verlede

    Die waterbesparingsmaatrels wat se-

    dert Desember 2010 in die gebied van

    Groter Hermanus van toepassing was,

    is met onmiddellike effek opgehef.

    Di aankondiging is op 29 Augustus 2012

    deur die burgemeesterNicolette Botha-Gu-

    thrie tydens die maandelikse raadsverga-

    dering van die Overstrand-munisipaliteit

    gedoen. Sy het ges die besluit is deur die

    munisipale bestuurder, Coenie Groene-

    wald, ingevolge sy bevoegdhede kragtens

    die Verordening opWatervoorsienings- en

    Sanitasiedienste, op aanbeveling van die

    waterbesparings-taakgroep geneem.

    Met die De Bos-dam tans 75%vol, die Ga-

    teway-boorgatveld in volle produksie en

    die boorgatvelde in die Hemel-en-Aarde-

    valleiwat binnekort bydie gebied sewater-

    voorsieningstelselaangesluitword,wasdit

    duidelik dat die afgelope maande se water-

    krisis iets van die verlede is.

    Vandeesmaand se renval staan reeds op

    107 mm teenoor die 60 mmwat verlede jaar

    in Augustus gemeet is en die gemiddelde

    renval van 77 mm vir Augustus.

    Projeksies wat ingevolge n scenario-be-

    planningsprogram gedoen is, toon dat in-

    dien daar geen verdere ren val nie en wa-

    terbesparings opgehef word, daar voldoen-

    de water in die stelsel is om aan die gebied

    se behoeftes te voorsien tot Desember 2013.

    Botha-Guthrie het ges sy is verheug oor

    dienuutsteontwikkelingenhetnamensdie

    munisipaliteit haar dank betuig aan die in-

    woners vir hul geduld en samewerking oor

    die afgelope twee jaar omdiekrisis diehoof

    te bied.

    n Aanduiding van hoeveel daar bespaar

    is, blyk uit die verskil tussen die waterver-

    bruik inJulie 2009 toedit op294megaliter

    gestaan het en Julie vanjaar toe de ver-

    bruik 197 megaliter beloop het.

    Die burgemeester het egter n beroep ge-

    doen op inwoners omvoort te gaanmet hul

    praktyke om water te spaar. Tuinmakers

    moet daarop let dat besproeiing van tuine

    ingevolge die munisipale verordening op

    waterdienste nie tussen 09:00 en 17:00 toe-

    laatbaar is nie.

    Sy het ook lof gehad vir die aktiewe be-

    stuur wat deur amptenare op hul onder-

    skeie terreine toegepas is endiewysewaar-

    op hulle saamgewerk het om sukses te ver-

    seker.

    Die munisipaliteit sit intussen steeds sy

    program voort om lekkasies op sy water-

    voorsieningstelsels op te spoor en reg te

    stel.

    Die vervanging van verouderde water-

    meters vorder ook goed en tot op datum is

    1 761 reeds vervang.

    Die projek om vloeibeperkermeters by

    laekostehuise aan te bring,word ookvoort-

    gesit maar dit word in oorleg met die be-

    trokke wykskomitees gedoen.

    Daar is ookkennis geneemdat tydensdie

    waterbeperkings verskeie optredes deur

    wetstoepassers teen oortreders uitgevoer

    is. In Julie het die ondersoeke tot 31 boetes

    gelei en verskeie skulderkenningsboetes is

    reeds betaal.

    Op die oomblik is daar 87 sake wat deur

    die landdros aangehoor moet word.

    Instandhouding van paaie raak

    agter weens swak weer

    Diegoeierenwatindieafgelopepaarweke

    ondervind is, het ook ongelukkig sy tol ge-

    eis wat die instandhouding van strate en

    paaie in die munisipale gebied van Over-

    strand betref.

    nAgterstand in instandhouding het ont-

    staan weens die feit dat slaggate op teer-

    paaie nie in nat weersomstandighede her-

    stel kan word nie.

    Diemunisipaliteit sditkryegteraandag

    wanneer weersomstandighede dit toelaat

    en die dienste van n private kontrakteur

    word ook ingespan om munisipale werk-

    spannetehelpomdieagterstandeuit tewis.

    Onderhoudswerk aan gruispaaie oor die

    hele gebied is ook afhanklik van gunstige

    weersomstandighede en sal binnekort die

    nodige aandag kry, s die munisipaliteit.
