FHVRRA cares

Janet Holwill, FHVRRA

The Fish Hoek Valley Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association (FHVRRA) is a civic organisation whose committee members care about what happens in our community. We deal with issues such as roads and transport, infrastructure, planning, amenities, eg beach and sports, security, municipal rates, social issues, environmental issues and input on draft City of Cape Town policies.

All of these issues concern the residents and I am sure that all of you want the best for our suburb.

This year, two long-standing exco members Allen Rose- Innes and Janet Holwill, both past chairmen, are standing down and we are appealing for new and younger members of the community to come forward and join the exco, bringing their fresh ideas and enthusiasm.

There are four general meetings a year and the exco meets once a month except December.

Remember if we leave it to someone else we usually get something we don’t like or nothing at all. An active ratepayer association brings your suburb to the attention of the City and important issues are not pushed aside because no one cares. If you have an area of expertise or a particular interest so much the better to help with informed input.

The annual general meeting is on Thursday February 23, and we appeal to you to come along and become actively involved in making Fish Hoek a community you are proud to live in.
