New committee

The Groenvallei Neighbourhood Watch’s newly elected executive committee, from left, are treasurer Sonja Mostert, co-ordinator Willem Mostert (back), vice chairman Hennie Meiring, chairwoman Trudie Theron, secretary Lea Anne Weppenaar and Janine Mongie from Bellville Community Police Forum. The watch has 23 patrollers who are active once a week in Groenvallei, Heemstede and Joubert Park. Ms Weppenaar encouraged more residents to join. “The more involved we all are the better chance we have of fighting crime and being aware of what is going on in the neighbourhood,” she said. The watch plans to hold fund-raisers for licence plate recognition cameras. Contact
