WITH only one day left to vote for “Jeffreysbaai” as South Africa’s Town of the Year, Nina’s in Da Gama Road is the place to be today.

All those who have not yet voted, are invited to come and cast their votes at the popular eatery on May 31.

Five votes will earn you a free coffee, tea, cappuccino, cold drink, craft beer, wine or gin. The promotion is limited to one drink per voter.

Joe Ferreira, chairman of the Kouga Business Forum, said the whole of Jeffreys Bay was buzzing with excitement.

“The support from all sectors of our community has simply been fantastic. Several networking sessions have taken place to get everyone on board and local businesses have been offering great incentives to those who vote,” he said.

“We would like to thank each and every one of them for getting behind Jeffreys Bay’s bid to be crowned as the Kwêla Town of the Year.”

Freddie van Rooyen, of the community organisation Masikhathalelaneni, said the competition was like a dream come true for him.

“It’s been wonderful to see people from all walks of life working together and getting to know one another. Collectively, we can win this competition and draw more tourists and investors to our region,” he said.

Meanwhile, Kouga Mayor Horatio Hendricks has called on all residents of the Eastern Cape to support J’Bay.

“We are proud that J’Bay has been chosen to represent the Eastern Cape and would like to appeal to everyone in the province to support the town,” he said.

The national winner will receive R1-million’s worth of free marketing through Kyknet while Kwêla will also host a massive celebration, featuring top artists and entertainment for the whole family, in the winning town in September.

Jeffreys Bay will compete against Fochville (Gauteng), Wakkerstroom (Mpumalanga), Modimolle (Limpopo), Montagu (Western Cape), Upingtong (Northern Cape), Parys (Free State), St Lucia (KwaZulu-Natal) and Mariental (Namibia).

Simply SMS the full Afrikaans town name Jeffreysbaai to 33157.

SMS’s cost R1,50 each and a maximum of 30 SMS’s per cellphone will be counted.

Voting closes at 12 noon on Friday, June 1.
