At last! It is December and that means – it is holiday time for many.
It has been quite a tough year from Stilbaai and the area as fires reeked havoc again and many farm lands and fields were lost while the area did not receive the amount of rain it needs. This means that it is currently very dry and the Hessequa Municipality put water restrictions in place.
To top it all, Eskom has started with a load shedding program and this not only influence all the households, but also the businesses, big and small.
Please also adhere to the rules for fireworks. Residents and visitors will still remember what happened on the first day of the 2018 and by just looking at the area across from the municipal offices, will serve as a reminder…
We have put together some handy information regarding all these issues. Both the website and Facebook page of the Hessequa Municipality are quite up to date and helpful – visit it to find more information.

Please adhere to these water restrictions from 10 Dec. to 10 Jan. for the whole of the Hessequa region.
