Heritage Society Executive

Heritage Society's executive changes

Rene' de Kock has been the chairperson since May 2012

(Mossel Bay Advertiser, Friday 21 January 2011).
The Executive Committee of Heritage Mossel Bay this week saw the departure of popular Chairperson, Adri Koekemoer, to take up a sought-after situation on the academic staff of North West University in Potchefstroom.

In wishing her well on her successful appointment, former Deputy Chairman, Jack van der Lecq, who now moves into the position of Chairman

of the Society, praised the drive, energy and leadership that Adri had brought to the committee during her short tenure as Chairperson.

In approving Van der Lecq's appointment, the Society executive committee also appointed long-serving committee member and well-known Great Brak River history- , museum and heritage buff, Rene de Kock as Deputy Chairman.

Commenting on the year ahead, Vander Lecq said: "One of the early administrative issues to be attended to is the change in the Society's fiscal year to conform with the government's Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport (DCAS) financial reporting cycle, under which heritage resources, museums and society's such as ours function. This will improve our interface with provincial and national heritage institutions." Van der Lecq pointed out that the adjustment in financial year reporting will necessitate the Society’s AGM changing to an earlier date. He said members would be advised of the new timing in due course.

The website looks lovely!
Well done!
Please give my kindest regards to all on that side.
I am working hard, but loving every moment of it. It is very hot here, and that has taken some getting used to, but the many, many trees and accompanying shade makes it more bearable.
Have a great day!
Kind regards

Wolwedans Dam

The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry reports that during the last week in July 2017, our Wolwedans dam water level was more than 79 % full.

On the 10th March 2011, after a severe local drought water restrictions were eventually lifted. Whilst we have had fairly good rains since then, the remainder of the Western Cape is experiancing heavy drought conditions.
