Fender Bender in the Main Road.

FB 120917

Just before 10h00 this morning two residents collided just outside the Greyton Supermarket & Hardware. The vehicle pictured was stationary at the time when a reversing bakkie from the opposite hit it.

Saps were on the scene shortly thereafter and the driver of the bakkie was taken for medical attention and was later hospitalised. While we might be in Greyton it does not mean that one can give up paying attention. Local resident Elizabeth De Kock says that this is the second incident recently and two other vehicles in similar circumstances were also involved in a minor incident at approximately the same place. Whenever driving caution and attention is required wherever you are.

Greyton Gun Club AGM Shoot 17

2017 AGM Shoot

The after lunch crowd shooting some fine sporting.

Members and friends gathered for the clubs annual general meeting shoot on the 26th of August amid some very fine weather with little or no wind. Shooting started 30 min late on account of emergency repairs to the range. Unfortunately it seems that in the night instillations only completed the day before were removed. Of note James Sedgwick and Solms Beyers were quick off the mark putting in a very credible 22 in the first sporting detail. The shooting on the trap range was not as good and the long layoff seems to have left all a little rusty.

 

As a result of pressing matters on the agenda members retired to the Oak and Vigne at 1200 to deliberate. The first point of order was the election of a new Chairman. Members voted in unanimity to elect Hubertus Sauma Jeltsch to the chair. He will be assisted in his new role by John Reader as RSO and Nick Downing as Club Treasurer. There were several other discussion and important resolutions taken and we refer members to the minutes if they were not present.

Members and guests returned to the range after a long lunch for some more shooting. Guests attending the lunch were Daniel Erasmus, Jonathan Beyers, Denzil and Kari Haenow. Several of whom will be joining the club. Lunch was a most pleasant affair and the bill was collected by the club. Please note that we have been invited to shoot at Hermanus next month in the first of a series of friendly interclubs. The HGC has just bought a new trap machine and we will be shooting a trap and skeet event. There will be a braai afterwards, details will be supplied closer to the time.

The big storm in Greyton, results in minor damage only.

Not seen for a while, snow in Greyton!

 

What had been named as the mother of all storms rolled in with much huffing and puffing. Predictably the power supply was an early casualty of the very high winds. It seems the main line had failed once again to Caledon. During the night it was quite hairy but good preparations seem to have limited the damage and Wednesday passed with much less excitement than expected. Cold wet weather with moderate winds was the order of the rest of the day.

Initial assessment indicated that the power would be out till Thursday however Gideon Malherbe was able to organise a reduced alternative supply last night. Repairs to the main line will proceed in due course.

Good rain fell in the area which will make the farmers pleased and there is some snow on the mountain this morning which is good for Greyton’s long term water situation. Unfortunately much less rain fell in the Western Cape farmlands than was predicted and while this front brought some relief it does little to solve our long term water crisis.

Greyton Market up and running again!

Greyton Market DRC

Within less than a week of the loss of the Greyton market defiant marketers were up and running again. Stalls were set up on the west street side of the DRC. Turnout was very good and there was something for everyone. Whether you were looking for something savoury or sweet or even a unique piece of artwork it was all there and will be again this Saturday. Weather is clearing after some much needed rain in the Western Cape so the latter half of the Easter weekend should be most pleasant.
