Keeping the beach safe

■ The annual Beach Safety Project on Hout Bay beach began on Wednesday December 7. This project is run by volunteers who sign up for a two-hour shift to patrol the beach to make sure that crime is minimised. Ready for the season are, from left, patroller Sue Freeling, Kim Johnstone, of sponsor Hills Pet Nutrition, Mike Rigg, of K9 Solutions, beach project manager Tammy Matthysen and patroller Therese Matthysen.
