The residents of Morgens Village in Woodlands have taken the first step towards taking back their streets, said Ward 75 councillor Joan Woodman.

After a meeting held at Dagbreek Hall on Thursday July 25, attended by Ms Woodman, Lentegeur CPF chairman, Byron De Villiers, Westgate neighbourhood watch chairman officer, Ridwaan Nero, a neighbourhood watch was established with five executive committee members to lead the organisation.

“We would like to congratulate the executive committee on their appointment and wish them well. They took the first step in the right direction in eradicating their area from anti-social behaviour and crime and creating safer communities as we take back our streets, together we can,” she said.
