Ons nuusbrief hierdie maand lyk anders. Onder is ‘n brief wat ek ontvang het van een van ons gereelde werkers by die buurtwag. Ek het die brief sonder enige veranderinge aangeheg.
Our newsletter this month takes on a different look. Below is a letter drafted by one of the people who help us on a regular basis. I have copied the letter without any editing.

Greetings to you all. Beste Lesers.

The burglaries that took place during April were less than the average for the preceding months. The area around the main beach however, has shown an increase during the past month. Residents are urged to remain vigilant and report any unusual activity to their security companies and the 24/7 emergency phone 072 0155729.

Die inbrake wat gedurende April plaasgevind het was minder as die gemiddelde van die voorafgaande maande. Die gebied rondom die Hoofstrand het egter ‘n toename getoon teenoor die vorige maande. Inwoners word versoek om paraat te bly en alle ongewone aktiwiteite aan hul betrokke sekuriteits maatskappy en die 24/7 nood nommer 072 015 5729 te rapporteer.

Public participatition meeting on 20/2/2018 (Tuesday, February the 20th),  at 18h00 at Crassula Hall.

Presentations will be given by a camera security company and SAPS regarding cameras for Betty's Bay. Public participatition is required so that all issues can be addressed. Tea and coffee will be served.

Please find attached a DOCX or PDF file of the report.

Greetings to all residents,
We apologise for the delay in distributing this newsletter, as there was some uncertainty on the statistics which needed to be clarified. There has been a 10% reduction in the number of incidents reported when comparing August with July.

Hierdie nuusbrief vir Junie word gewy aan Louise Fowler, 'n sewejarige kindjie wat tragies in die laatmiddag deur die stormsee van 30 Junie uit haar moeder se arms geruk is.

This newsletter for June is written in memory of Louise Fowler, a seven year old, who tragically got swept from her mother’s grasp into the stormy seas, late afternoon of Friday 30th June.

Ons vra om verskonig dat hierdie nuusbrief so laat versprei word, maar weens onsekerheid oor sommige van die statistieke moes ons eers die feite uitklaar. Wat beskikbaar is skilder egter nie ‘n rooskleurige prentjie nie. Wat dit erger maak is dat in vele gevalle nalatigheid deur die inwoners aanleiding gegee het tot die insidente.

We apologise for the delay in distributing this newsletter, as there was some uncertainty on the statistics which needed to be clarified. As can be seen these statistics do not paint a pretty picture. What makes these incidents difficult to accept is that in many cases there was negligence on the part of residents.

Daar is 'n 69% verbetering in die aantal voorvalle in vergelyking met Februarie. Drie arrestasies is in die maand gemaak, wat, glo ons, 'n aansienlike impak het op die vermindering in die misdaadsyfer. Die uitstekende samewerking tussen die polisie, sekerheidsmaatskappye en die BBBW het tot hierdie arrestasies gelei. / There has been a 69% improvement in total incidents reported, compared to the statistics for February. There were 3 arrests made during the month which, we believe, has made a significant impact in the reduced crime incidents. There was great co-operation between the police, security companies and BBNW that resulted in these arrests.
