HOLIDAY SECURITY UPDATE Criminals don’t go on holiday
The Green Point and Oranje-Kloof City Improvement Districts urge you to partner with us in making our areas safe, secure and enjoyable this holiday season.
Please adhere to the following safety tips and programme these emergency numbers into your mobile phone.
WHAT'S HAPPENING IN YOUR CID?
Kloof Street Business Forum established to safeguard small businesses
Due to an increased concern around shopliftings and theft to smaller businesses in the area, the Oranje-Kloof City Improvement District (OK CID), together with local businesses and the South Africa Police Service (SAPS), established the Kloof Street Business Forum in September this year.
The Forum exists to create a platform where businesses and authorities alike can express their concerns, share knowledge and jointly find effective solutions for the challenges at hand.
Get into the breakfast beat on Kloof Street
Play in Kloof Street this holiday!
Kloof Street boasts with some of the best breakfast hotspots in Cape Town. This trendy street will leave you spoilt for choice with everything from budget friendly egg on toast to fancy gourmet breakfast varieties. Overlooking Table Mountain, there is arguably no better way to start your day.
To help you find your breakfast match, we have listed our favourites below. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
A SEASON FOR CARING AND SHARING
Everyone has something to give
For thousands of underprivileged people in South Africa, this festive season won’t be any different to other days. Why not make a difference and reach out this season to those less fortunate – everyone has something to give.
Believe it or not, random acts of kindness are not always the best way to give. Starting this season, take the time to find a cause close to your heart and build a giving relationship that will make a lasting difference.
GO GREEN THIS NEW YEAR
Are you recycling at home?
Get a head start on your New Year’s resolutions and save a whopping 1 090 kg of carbon dioxide (the gas responsible for global warming) each year, by merely recycling half your household waste. With organisations like Oasis collecting your recycling, or our handy list of recycling drop-off points for a DIY option, it’s no longer a hassle to be environmentally friendly.
LIST YOUR BUSINESS IN OUR FREE BUSINESS DIRECTORY
We aim to be a source of valuable information on your CID which includes a comprehensive list of all the businesses in our area. If you manage or own a business (of any kind) in the Oranje-Kloof or Green Point area, please send us your complete contact information and a visual and we upload it to our site at no cost.
