Yesterday, Overstrand Executive Mayor, Dr Annelie Rabie, attended the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations held at the Old Harbour in Hermanus, together with fellow municipal officials and her Mayco members.

During this occasion, 19-year-old Zwelihle resident and organiser of the event, Inga Mfundisi, lit a beacon to celebrate Queen Elizabeth and her 70 years on the throne and as Head of the Commonwealth.
