Oktoberfest 2017 Resounding Success

The St Francis Bay Oktoberfest 2017 Was A Resounding Success

The second annual St Francis Bay Oktoberfest served as a great night out as well as a massive fundraiser for the St Francis College.

This year the Oktoberfest found a home at Rambling Rose, and its market atmosphere, with numerous food and drinks stalls, was well received by all who attended.

A large percentage of the revellers were drawn from out-of-town, reflecting the wider appeal of such a fun-filled family evening.

The Liquid Lines Salt Water Polo Tourney started off the day at Quaysyde, and this was presented by Red Bull. It was a great success, and Liquid Lines are looking at something bigger for next year.

There were three bands in attendance at the Oktoberfest – Devon van Driel, Absent Irish and Lucas Reunion- and they kept the crowd entertained from 6pm-12am.

The revellers enjoyed a variety of beers, gins and food, as well as great service from the Oktoberfest bar staff, and the venue was full to capacity with all tickets sold.

The St Francis Surf Factory grom board raffle saw 110 tickets sold, and the winners of the 2 grom-boards were Emma Darke and Jessie Moulang.

The Oktoberfest was sold out with 250 people in attendance. All in, the Oktoberfest raised R55,000 for the St Francis College, with the grom-board raffle contributing R5,500.

New ward committee to be elected for Ward 11

A new ward committee is set to be elected for Ward 11 at Jeffreys Bay on October 27.

Kouga Speaker Horatio Hendricks said all Ward 11 residents were encouraged to attend the election.

“Ward committees are important because they represent the aspirations of various constituencies in a ward. They are also good platforms through which residents can keep us, their elected leaders, accountable,” he said.

The first election for Ward 11 had to be postponed due to a misunderstanding about the scheduled date. The second meeting, at which a committee was elected, was nullified by the Council after an appeal was lodged by one of the residents.

Hendricks said it was important that all ward committees were fully functional and were in a position to perform their tasks.

The elective meeting will take place at the Newton Hall at 18:00 on October 27. Ward 11 covers the areas of Jeffreys Bay Central and C-Place.
