Block 7

Imizamo Yethu

Block 7 is located close to the centre of Hout Bay and has Penzance as a close neighbour on the southern boundary and Hughenden on the northern side. Its western boundary is Hout Bay Main Road and the eastern boundary is the pipe track just below the mountain reserve.

There are more than 40 residents of Imizamo Yethu (IY) who have successfully completed a course, or who are currently undergoing training. The successful students are presented with a certificate confirming their attendance at the course. Quite a number have already signed up as members of Hout Bay Neighbourhood Watch.

The Department of Community Safety (DOCS) have provided Imizamo Yethu neighbourhood watch equipment in the past, including some re-chargeable torches and a number of winter jackets and fluorescent bibs for use by their patrollers.

This sector is showing great enthusiasm in its aim to develop levels of safety and security that will help eradicate crime in its own suburbs, and in the greater Hout Bay, as much as possible.
