To all the Doringkloof residents, we wish you a safe and enjoyable festive season, and the very best for 2016.

By every resident playing a part in crime prevention and contributing to the activities of the Doringkloof Neighbourhood Watch we can reduce criminal incidents substantially. Let’s do this in 2016.

We thank all the residents who have contributed their time, money and effort in order to make our suburb something special. The recent incident, in which many community-spirited residents offered their time and resources to remove a tree that fell over and blocked Mahonie Street, is indicative of what we, as a community, can achieve when we stand together.

Our thanks also go to all the non-Doringklowers who provided a range of supportive actions, especially when the lights went out or the water supply dried up.

We also extend our heartfelt thanks to Councillor Christa Spoelstra who has been so supportive to Doringkloof for many years and who will be standing down after the 2016 municipal elections.

Best regards.

Doringkloof Residents Association and Neighbourhood Watch
