Welcome to September 2012
The GP/OKCID has taken part in several joint initiatives in the last few weeks, including a proactive 24-hour crime free operation on 17 August. Although crime in our areas has been greatly reduced it will never be eliminated, so please remain alert at all times and take note of the safety tips below when out and about this month.
Due to complications with the surrounding water pipeline network, work on the new proposed MyCiTi bus stop outside the CQ Spar in Green Point has been stopped and the area has been reinstated back to its original state. This has however alleviated the congestion on Somerset Road. The reposition of the proposed bus stop is still to be finalised. The construction of the first three stops in Oranjezicht has begun; however traffic disruptions are not expected, as the roads are largely residential.
It's still pretty chilly in the Mother City, so red wine, juicy steaks and spicy food are still the obvious choices for a night out. Iconic steakhouse Nelson's Eye in Gardens and Thai Café in the Cape Quarter are both great options, read more below.
If you are hosting an event in either Oranje-Kloof or Green Point, or are running any spring specials, please pop the details through to us in an email (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) and we will add them to our websites and Facebook pages. Please also encourage your staff and regular customers to subscribe to our monthly newsletter - we have a couple of great spot prizes for new subscribers - look out for details on Facebook later this week (GP, OK).
