SCOTTSVILLE Community Watch will host a Neighbourhood Dance on Friday, September 13 at Club Phumula from 6.30 pm. This fundraising initiative for the Alexandra Road sector, includes neighbourhoods such as Bellevue, Epworth, Hayfields East, Lincoln Meade, Pelham and Scottsville.

Jackee Sayed, chairperson of the community watch, said the initiative is to support people who patrol these neighbourhoods voluntarily.

“The purpose is to help fund the patrollers with necessary equipment and to also assist in the running of the Community Policing Forums (CPF),” said Sayde.

The dance will host Trevor “DJ Mean” Browne. Alexandra Road police spokesperson Sergeant Mthokozisi Ngobese said as the SA Police Services they are appreciative of such initiatives.

“We encourage community members to contribute in the fight against crime, especially CPFs. We welcome this initiative because it seeks to assist Alexandra Road police,” said Ngobese.

Tickets cost R50 per person and are available from Sergeant Michelle le Roux. For more information contact le Roux at 082 874 7726.
