Our Chairperson, Bruce Burmeister tabled his report and in particular gave details and progress of our camera initiative. We are pleased to advise that with the funds raised from the carnival, we have been able to purchase 1 License Plate Recognition ("LPR'') camera and 4 overview cameras. These cameras, together with the 2 LPR cameras donated to us by Fidelity ADT will be strategically installed in the Village by the end of 2018. Whilst we cannot release details of the exact positions of the cameras, we can advise that their positioning was decided upon after consultations with SAPS, Fidelity ADT and Har-Lyn Neighbourhood Watch. The cameras will be monitored by Fidelity ADT 24/7 at no cost, as part of their ongoing sponsorship and support to HVCID and Harfield Villagers for which we are very grateful.
Other matters raised included:
- The Harfield Village Carnival next year, will be held on Saturday, 6 April 2019, and again most of the funds raised from the event will be used to purchase cameras.
- We will again host Halloween in the Park on 31 October 2018. Further details to follow.
- We will be donating R5 000 to Friends of Harfield Parks for the railway clean up.
