Thankful

Finding time for all the CKN admin is not always easy but today I found a gap to do some catch-up and got to go through our database and bank statement. It is so heartening to see all the members we have and their continued support of the area. Thank you for the ongoing support as we continue to try and make CKN a safer place for all that live here.

Welcome to the new members that joined us in the last two months. Our membership remains high and it is something we can be proud of. We do have some work to do to get those that are not members as yet to join us. There are not that many but we do have room to grow some more.

Thank you to Sharon in Kroton Street who painted the pillars to the park at both entrances. All these small things make the area smarter.

I have been walking my Great Dane daily lately as we lost his sister recently and we go through the park. It is quite an experience as everyone on the walk wants to “talk” to him. It’s also been great to meet so many people. The park is well utilised and someone told me they come from outside the area to use it as it is neat and tidy.

We have to thank Joy and her team for all the work in the park and area. The team picked up litter last week along Hendrik Potgieter, 21 bags!

Stay Aware

Last week a car was stolen overnight in Okkerneut Street. Again, the gate was lifted or the gate motor over-ridden. One’s electronic gate or motor remains one of the weakest points of access to your property. Please ensure your gate motor is secure and your gate cannot be lifted.

I was asked a question about the latest crime stats that were recently released. Does number one mean Honeydew is the best? No, it means for the category we are the worst! 2, second-worst in the country etc. This is out of some 1200 policing areas. I have been involved with the Honeydew police for some 21 years and things do not get better. Sad to say but it leaves us with no choice but to continue our crime-fighting efforts in the area.
