This festive season is a busy time in the area but if each one remains considerate and courteous both in the shops and especially on roads then everyone can have an enjoyable and relaxed time.

Overstrand has won a number of awards for the cleanest municipality and we would like to keep it that way so please leave only footprints. In her festive message the mayor of the Overstrand said: “It is not only the season for festivities but also the opportunity to show goodwill towards one another.

Let us be trustworthy and responsible in all we do, showing respect to all.”
