GEORGE NEWS – The Blanco Neighbourhood Watch (BNW) have temporarily merged with Herold’s Bay Neighbourhood Watch, until the seaside resort’s neighbourhood structure is able to operate independantly.“We are also in partnership with Heather Park Neighbourhood Watch and regularly participate in mass patrols with Saps and other neighbourhood structures in George,” said BNW Chairperson Deon van der Rijst. 2017/04/11- George Herald
Herolds Bay is a settlement in Eden District Municipality in the Western Cape province of South Africa. It is holiday destination west of Malgas River mouth, some 24km south-west of George and east of Guano Bay and named after the first Dutch Reformed minister of George, Tobias Johannes Herold (1812-1823).
The beautiful, secluded bay has held an allure for holidaymakers since the time of old. Sketches and photographs in the George museum tell of ox wagons filled with tents, goods and servants, camping out on the beach itself.
Today the bay is no less of an attraction and surfing, fishing and swimming, sheltered from the south easterlies that can blow on the coast, make this a favourite destination. Only 15 kilometres from George, the bay literally nestles in a sheltered rocky cove with a wide stretch of beach and inviting waters.
The little village of Herold’s Bay has short of 100 homes, making it something of a hamlet in much the same way that Llandudno in Cape Town has managed to retain its village appeal. Certainly, this isn’t a humming spot.
In April 2017 Herolds Bay Neighbourhood Watch merged with Blanco Neighbourhood Watch. What this merger entails is continued support from BNW to HBNHW.
