What began as a family farm, then became a picturesque seaside holiday town, has grown into the current day town of Fish Hoek. Tuesday April 24 marked the day, 100 years ago, that the first plots in Fish Hoek were officially sold, laying the foundations for the town. The unveiling of a plaque celebrating the town’s centenary was unveiled by ward councillor Felicity Purchase at the civic centre. The ceremony included songs and performances by 100 children from the valley, including Fish Hoek Primary School, and Masiphumelele and Fish Hoek high schools. The volunteer organisation Fish Hoek 100 and beyond thanked all the parties who made the event possible and CEO of the organisation, Richard Valentine said that the volunteer group would be focusing on greening issues, security, the Main Road and tourism in coming months.
