IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Passenger Railways Agency SA (PRASA)

After a meeting at the Prasa offices on Wednesday July 20 where the STCA was represented, by Merle Evertse (Simon’s Town), Eileen Haywood (Glencairn), Martin {surname unknown}(a business man and a concerned resident), Commander Steyn (SA Naval Museum) and 3 members of PRASA, the encouraging news was given that the sand dune will be removed and the trains will run again within the next few months.
The STCA will keep you informed of the progress.

ERF 1 IN GLENCAIRN (VEGETATION CLEARANCE) DRAGS ON:

Residents of Glencairn were dismayed to hear that the clearance of the alien vegetation-infested mountainside has once again been delayed. With only three months to the start of the fire season, the delay in removing the Rooikrantz (Acacia cyclops), an extreme fire risk, is a matter of grave concern. After 9 years of discussion, this last stumbling block was created by the Executive Director of the Provincial Health Department.

The STCA is committed to standing by the residents of Simon’s Bay ( Simon’s Town, Glencairn and Redhill) on all matters concerning our welfare, and with the support of a larger membership, the association will have a much stronger voice in the corridors of City government.

Please join us and become part of the drive to find solutions for Simon’s Bay.
