14 Feb 2012 - Last week’s annual Hout Bay Neighbourhood Watch bash, held at the gracious Riverside Estates in Valley Road, was a huge success with many new faces among the members attending.
Tickets for the spit braai were quickly sold out and an additonal thirty tickets were made available. Guests were greeted with a glass of champagne and enjoyed a delicious meal, many won great prizes (with a total value of over R20 000) and once the music started in earnest, members showed their mettle on the dancefloor.
“The Bruce Taylor Award"
The annual Bruce Taylor Award for the member who is considered to have contributed the most during the last year, was given to Julie Banham, current chairperson of the HBNW. Julie has been an active member of the HBNW since its inception in 2005 and became vice chairperson in 2007. With the exception of a 6 months gap, Julie has continuously served as the chairperson or vice chair for over five years. Without a doubt a worthy recipient of the Bruce Taylor Award.
A special thanks to Hout Bay Insurance Brokerswho, as in the past several years, once again sponsored the welcome drinks. Also, a big 'thank you' toOffice National in Victoria Avenue for again sponsoring the printing of the tickets.
