There’s a new brigadier in town and she’s laying down the law and taking names – in a good way! The GP/OKCID security team is tightening patrols and collaborating more efficiently than ever, so we’ll no doubt start to see great results soon.

Did you know that we also take care of medical emergencies in the area if we’re alerted to them? Our role is greater than just keeping you safe; it’s about making sure you’re looked after in the best way possible. We helped with five incidents last month and made sure that the right people – SAPS and medical assistance – arrived at the scene.

In February there were 96 incidents across the GP/OKCID. There were 11 successful arrests made and 44 vagrants were removed. Other minor incidents included general theft and theft out of vehicles. On 24 February a woman was arrested for possession of drugs during an operation at the quarry, and two were held for questioning. Captain Tomana and Constable Sechele also arrested two suspects for general theft in another area.

We received some great feedback for outstanding service from Karen at K&R Consultants:

Dear Marc,

I would like to take the time (one always complains…) to congratulate you on your two staff members who gave me outstanding assistance and service.

After a very difficult challenge, getting past the security at Marina Bluff, the two gentlemen concerned, took care of my flat battery with efficiency, professionally but at the same time empathy with me being late for an appointment and stressed!

If our country had more of Mr Njemgele Thobani & Mr Nkopane Jankie’s attitude, what heights our country could achieve!

Please thank both men, again, for their outstanding service. It was a pleasure!

Let us know how we can assist you, help your business or serve you in some way. If you want to get involved in what’s happening in Green Point or Oranje-Kloof, why not become a board member? All that this requires is for you to attend four board meetings a year, and you can have a say in your area and contribute to society.

Stay safe out there!

Sofa Company demands you kick back and relax

The Sofa Company is the latest addition to Revel Fox, at 117 Waterkant Street. Revel Fox has been firmly planted in Green Point since 1970, although the building itself was originally constructed in 1917. It has been home to various companies over the years, and each transformed the space to best suit their needs as demand for retail space increased. The Sofa Company moved into this dynamic building at the end of January 2017 and is satisfied to call it home.

The Sofa Company is about creating beautiful furniture of high quality. Sales are handled exclusively online and supplied directly from the manufacturer in Vietnam. Started by Danish designers Cathrine and Christian Rudolph, The Sofa Company is a ground-breaking concept for the future of furniture, founded on the belief that everyone should be able to access good-quality furniture.

Built on the value of authenticity, a passion for design and the need to challenge the conventional, The Sofa Company is an ideal addition to our community of forward thinking and diligent residents. Furniture and The Sofa Company focuses on even the tiniest details because furniture is more than a functional object, it’s a statement. Alongside their beautiful sofas, they also offer original armchairs, footrests, coffee tables, children’s furniture, dining tables and chairs. You can add a touch of Danish design to almost any room in your home!

If you think this is just another lifestyle store, think again. Right down to what the different sofas are called, you’ll fall in love with each one, from Hugo and Nelly the coffee tables to Alice, Anne, Edward and Henry sofas! Their online store is almost like paging through a book of names, and each one has a different meaning.

Looking to buy? Visit their website here or pay a visit to their showroom on Waterkant Street and prepare to have your idea of style challenged.
