The Maitland Community Police Forum (CPF) says it is not all about making the streets safer for everyone – it has a soft spot for women as well.

The CPF hosted a Women’s Month event to seal the month-long celebrations honouring women and their different roles in society.

The event took place at Holy Cross Church on Saturday. About 52 women from various communities like Maitland, Brooklyn and Garden Village attended the event.

They were treated to brunch, music, poetry and make-overs by beauticians from Makeover Essentials who also provided make-up tips.

Sh’zen products were used to treat the attendees with hand creams and their nails where done by a lady from the community. They also received gifts to take home at the end of the day.

Local ward councillor Lisa Mcbride and Sh’zen representatives also handed out gifts.

Mcbride said at the event it was heart-warming to see the dedicated people being pampered.

“Various stakeholders work hard together to make sure that Maitland is kept safe and clean. Some of the women here brave the night to be outside and patrol whilst others are asleep,” she said.

“We really want to thank you for that and may you continue working with the people so that we keep the area clean. It’s my sincere belief that the hard work of the Maitland CPF paid off in the relationships that they have with other roleplayers in the safety sector. As a result, the Maitland community benefits and it can be seen in how much cleaner the area looks.”

Nabiela Davids, one of the women who attended the event, said it was heart-warming.

“It makes us feel so loved to have something like this for women. We put in a lot of work at home and many at times we forget about ourselves. Opportunities like these make us relax and we get to connect with other woman. We hope that it won’t end as the month just ended but we continue to see such events for women,” she said
