Tweni Talk: Strange things are happening in Tweni

Tweni residents are fed up that the area behind the recycling bins is trashed over weekends. The culprits illegally dump household garbage instead of leaving it outside their properties for the usual weekly collection.

THE wonderful winter weather has brought excellent fishing conditions and your scribe has an inside scoop that Tweni is the place to be after being treated to fresh shad last weekend.

Unusual things are happening in Tweni, especially in Taplin Road. A young man has been going around asking if he can stay over for the night and also asks for a job. Don’t take a chance and let the Good Samaritan in you allow him in.

Great response

A vehicle belonging to a holidaymaker was stolen in Tweni in the early hours of last Saturday morning, (2am to be precise). Movement was picked up on the Tweni Community Watch cameras and thanks to the great work by SAPS staff members from Port Shepstone 10111, it was later recovered at Nyandezulu.

Illegal dumping

Once again, the area behind the recycling bins was trashed last Sunday. People are illegally dumping household garbage instead of leaving it outside their properties for the usual weekly collection.

It then gets rifled through on weekends leaving an unsightly mess. Perhaps a solution to this problem is for RNM to post 24-hour security, particularly over weekends, to catch and fine the culprits or individuals who dump or litter.

Be responsible

Umtentweni has the nickname of being the ‘dog capital’ of the South Coast, while that is all well and good, please ensure that your dogs are kept in your yards at all times and do not let them roam the streets.

Your scribe hears stories of dogs getting out and attacking pedestrians on the roads and other dogs who are in their yards. Be proactive and take responsibility for your pets.

SRA granted

Good news for the Umtentweni Conservancy, Umtentweni Ratepayers and the whole of Umtentweni! The application for the Special Rates Area (SRA) was approved and granted at RNM Council on June 6.

Now the conservancy is able to proceed with legal requirements involved in establishing the SRA. For more information, please contact Umtentweni Conservancy chairman Alex Skene at 078 5087290 or email [email protected].

On the mend

Wishing Arthur Edwards and Leon Venter from Umtentweni a speedy recovery after they both had eye surgery recently.

Good luck

Jenny Jackson went into hospital last Sunday (9th) for her long-awaited operation. Her friends and family are thinking of her and wishing her everything of the very best.

Diarise the concert

Steph Bennet tells your scribe that the proceeds from the show go towards two charities and The Golden Singers have been practising hard for the next concert at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church Hall in Sea Park on July 26 at 9.30 for 10am.

The entrance is R15pp, which includes refreshments. The choir is dedicated to maintaining a good standard for their shows and this one promises to be very special. We are lucky to have a lot of talented singers in our midst. See you there!
