Ocean View resident Sybil Beukes received an award for long-standing service to St Clare of Assisi Church at a service on Sunday February 3. Ms Beukes has been active in the church since the forced removals from Seaforth, Simon’s Town, in 1969. “Serving in the 
church as a sacristan was my life,” said Ms Beukes.
