The cute blue drop made its first public appearance this week when it joined Mayoral Committee Member Daniel Benson to welcome Ashraful Uloom to Hankey. The non-profit organisation from Johannesburg delivered 25 000 litres of water to the drought-stricken town and helped to distribute the bottles to more than a thousand households.

TOP local and national performers, scrumptious food, fun for the kids, an emergency services parade, sea rescue display, veteran cars, market stalls, a beer tent, cocktail bar and free wifi.

That’s what’s in store for visitors at the KIA Makietie Jeffreys Bay, set to take place at the Jeffreys Bay Caravan Park in Da Gama Road from September 21 to 23.

Kouga Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said the three-day makietie was being held to celebrate Jeffreys Bay winning the Kwêla Town of the Year competition for 2018 earlier the year.

“Jeffreys Bay won the competition because of its people, who are warm and welcoming, making it a great place to live, work or play.

“The makietie is about celebrating the spi-rit of the town and we look forward to welcoming visitors from near and far.”

He thanked the many stakeholders who had taken hands to organise the festival.

“Putting together the makietie has been as much of a team effort as winning the Town of the Year title was.

“We look forward to showcasing our town to the rest of South Africa. It is a golden opportunity to increase the number of tourists who visit our region and support the local economy.”

The festival stalls and fun fair will open at 15:00 on Friday, September 21, with the official opening set for 18:00.
