Great news everyone! We are thrilled to share that the Belhar Ext 7 Neighbourhood Watch patrollers have been doing an amazing job keeping their community safe over the past few months, thanks to the bicycles they received as part of the Provincial Sustainable Transport Programme!
Since receiving the bikes in partnership with the Western Province Transport and Public Works Department, Pedal Power Association, the patrollers have been able to cover more ground and respond more efficiently to incidents in their community.
Their success can be seen in the significant reduction of crime in the area. The patrollers have been instrumental in identifying suspicious behavior and preventing potential incidents, resulting in a safer and more secure neighborhood for all.
We applaud the dedication and commitment of the Belhar Ext 7 Neighbourhood Watch patrollers, and we are proud to support their efforts in keeping their community safe.
Congratulations to the patrollers on their successful patrols, and a big thank you to the organizations involved in making this possible!

We had the absolute pleasure of distributing 18 bicycles to Heaven’s Nest children’s home in Ottery today. Heaven’s Nest mission is to try to alleviate the plight of such children, by providing nurturing care and building self-confidence so that they can be reintegrated into the wider community, free from stigmatisation. To break the cycle of abandonment, abuse and neglect by empowering them to become healthy, happy and well-adjusted adults. This is part of the PSTP bicycle Distribution run by the Western Cape Government – Transport and Public Works, Cape Town in partnership with BEN, Pedal Power Association, Qhubeka Charity and Bike4All.
