LAUNCH OF PLETT FEELING SAFE FESTIVAL

What started out as a slightly somber Saturday 25 October, turned out to be a very blessed day for the event organizers of the “Plett Feeling Safe Festival”.

The planning of this event started about three months ago by Bitou Senior Traffic Officer Mr Sean Ganga and School Projects Coordinator – Traffic Officer Ms Danielle Petersen, by extending the invitation to all the local schools to build a mobile float with which had to comply with the various minimum criteria. Six of our local schools took up the challenge to make this a very successful event.

A parade was held through the main street of Plett CBD to showcase the exceptional talent of our scholars and then the festivities moved down to the Plettenberg Bay Rugby field. An independent panel of judges was present to judge the creative and colourful creations.

Various games were played by scholars, ranging from egg on the spoon race, sack race, three legged race to tug’o’war etc.

The Executive Mayor of Bitou Cllr Memory Booysen emphasized the importance of road safety awareness and said: “Statistics have proven that more pedestrians are victims to road accidents than the drivers of those vehicles. So we need to educate our youngsters at a very early age to be very vigilant when making use of our public roads.”

Our independent panel of judges comprised of Mr Barries Ferreira (Chairperson of Plett Business Chambers); Mr Peter Wallington (CEO: Plett Tourism) and Cllr Elaine Paulse from Bitou Municipality.

Congratulations to the team of Crags Primary on walking away with a cheque to the amount of R10 000.00.

Superintendent Traffic Services: Mr Gerry Swiegers extended his vote of thanks and appreciation to all the scholars and teachers, Bitou Council, Plett Tourism, Plett Business Chambers and all others who made this day possible and we are looking forward to see a titanic growth at next year’s event.
