Claremont police are inviting the members of their community to join them at a carols by candlelight event at the Claremont Gardens on Wednesday 9 December from 19:00 to 20:30.

The carols will be followed by a formal address by the police station commander, Colonel Enolium Joseph, at the Claremont civic centre.

The police say they are grateful for the partnership they have with their community and they are holding this event as a way of thanking the community, as well as to strengthen this already existing relationship. They are inviting people to come and relax with them and enjoy some good music as the year also winds off.

Guests are invited to bring their own picnic baskets as well as the candles that will be lit.

This event also forms part of the police’s activities in their 16 Days of Activism campaign against violence towards women and children.

Sergeant Lindile Dubeni, Claremont police spokesperson, says this is not only about networking but to appreciate the good working relationship between the police and the community.

“There is a lot to look forward to at this event. We are giving back to the community by providing a place were we can all meet and be entertained. We want to take the event as a way of strengthening relationships. This is also, on our part, to bring ourselves even closer to the community so that we can work together more effectively. We strongly believe in community partnership and that has been shown. We just want to cement it and make sure we go forward together strongly. Everyone is welcome to share the day with us at the gardens.”

They will also light candles in remembrance of those who have suffered or died from abuse.

“Come and be with us as we remember the victims of abuse. We haven’t forgotten about them and we as the police will be doing all we can to follow up on their cases – even more so during these 16 days of activism.”V For more information on this event contact Warrant Officer Ernest Wilkins on 079 894 1544 or 021 657 2288/1 or Constable Ovayo Sihlali on 079 894 1568.
