“THERE was little accommodation left in Kouga between Christmas and New Year. Some shops were even running out of mattresses and pillows as residents found themselves having to arrange sleeping space for extra guests,” he said.

A full programme of events also helped to attract more tourists, including day visitors, with the municipality’s Opening of the Season and New Year’s countdown drawing rave reviews from young and old.

There were also no drownings recorded at any of the official swimming beaches, with Kouga lifeguards keeping a close eye on bathers, while the NSRI’s pink buoys helped to save the life of a teenage boy at Jeffreys Bay who got caught in a rip current.

The safety of locals and holiday-makers was further prioritised, with the municipality’s Law Enforcement and Traffic officers working closely with SAPS, neighbourhood watches and security companies to minimise crime and traffic-related transgressions.

“What made this past festive season such a success, is the manner in which roleplayers and stakeholder groups took hands and worked together in the interest of the region and its people.

“On behalf of the Council and municipality, I would like to thank everyone for their contribution. We look forward to building on this success and welcoming even more visitors to our shores next year.”
