A Message from the current ASCW Chair to the outgoing Chair and his new Executive team.

Also during the AGM, members had the opportunity to "boast" and show off their recently acquired safety jackets. These jackets were partly sponsored by ASCW and partly paid by the members themselves.

The Jackets, made by Liquid Bullet, were an in-house design and therefore manufactured exclusively according to ASCW specifications.

Other NHW's are "green with envy" and we have received many compliments for the practical and smart looking jackets. Members had a choice between a high standard security jacket and a medium (light) version.

The move to invest into our member's safety-infrastructure, including pepperspray, torches, dash-cams, first-aid kits and other equipment was initiated by the previous Exco Committee during their tenure.

We therefore thank all of our sponsors that have contributed so generously towards this effort.

The Amandel and Surrounds Crime Watch is active in the following suburbs of Kuilsriver:

Amandelrug, Amandelsig, Rouxville, Haasendal, Elim, Bosonia, Mikro Park, Klipdam and the security complexes of Deo Gracia, Rosemary Gardens and Thyme Garden.


Please take note of the following proposed changes to the ASCW foot-print

The changes are predominantly on the right hand side of the above picture, in particular the inclusion of the upper part of Neethlingshof street. The Saxdown road should be opened up early August, as the bridge is now complete and the road is tarred.

Roads are allready being laid out in the extended Rouxville / Hazendal area, on the right of Saxdown road as per the above picture. Indications are that these new extensions will be incorporated into our ASCW footprint, thereby putting more pressure onto the current few, but dedicated patrollers.

More good News...

For those members that would rather make a contribution through a donation, rather than patrolling in the area, are welcome to do so. Matter of fact, it will be highly appreciated.
