Hout Bay Organised and Hout Bay Neighbourhood Watch are joining forces to combat crime.
We support HBNW- do you?
Our goal is to help HBNW raise the R100 000 needed to reach their target of R250 000. Hout Bay Organised is in no way affiliated with the Hout Bay Neighbourhood Watch but as neighbours we support the work they are doing and want to use our platforms to help raise funds to make Hout Bay a safer place.
You can help by adding HBNW as a beneficiary and set up a monthly payment schedule. No amount is too small but if every resident contributed R100 per month we would have enough to chase away criminals forever.
Matt Mercer, creator of the Hout Bay Organised platform, has a long history with Hout Bay Neighbourhood Watch- an organisation he helped form in 2005. Matt was the inaugral co-chairman of the organisation for the first two years. He is very proud of being a part of the team that brought crime levels down by 76% in their first year of operation. Over the years several teams have helped to build HBNW from strength to strength.
Matt Mercer is known in Hout Bay as one of the most active estate agents in the area and The Hout Bay Specialist. He has personally sold hundreds of homes in the area.
Key to his success has been his philosophy of active involvement in community affairs as a prerequisite for anyone wanting to sell in the area. Matt dedicates 20% of his time to community upliftment projects. He is a past president of the Hout Bay Rotary Club and was also Community Director of that organisation for several years- giving him a high profile in Hout Bay.
This website has been the highest ranked local website on Google and other search engines for 10 years. Our Facebook group is by far the largest and best information resource in Hout Bay. We have raised hundreds of thousands of rands for local charities including HBNW, helped find hundreds of lost pets, turned around ailing businesses by promoting them and Hout Bay, found accommodation for buyers and renters, helped find employment for hundreds of people, matchmaked couples and just generally been a chief source of entertainment in the bay.
Working together with HBNW, HBO will prioritise crowdfunding to achieve our crime busting targets and make Hout Bay a safer place for us all.
We have several fundraising events planned and will also pay R1000 for every property sold via an enquiry generated from this page. If you are interested in a valuation or selling contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 083 299 11 33.
