100 Years

Congratulations to Dot, a member of many years’ standing.

Christmas Market

Our four major projects



The BBRAG Committee has commenced with renovations and maintenance tasks to restore the Town Hall to its former glory. We are grateful for the overwhelming positive feedback received from residents and local businesses, some of whom have generously pledged sponsorship towards these endeavours. Thank you each and every one who supported us financially with this task. Come and see how we worked and transformed the dilapidated hall. Financial assistance can be made into our usual account with reference street name and number and word “hall”. We have spent close to 80k on renovations thus far.

We hope that this facility will again serve our community for all sorts of functions and activities. We are also offering Wi-Fi and the venue will be suitable for meetings and conferences courtesy of Aron Southey. We have acquired a first lot of chairs and tables are on loan from Round Table. Ww shall fit the hall and office areas out as and when we are financially able to do so. Cas Vorster donated a piano and pool table, which we hope to refurbish. The conference tables were donated by Chester Wilmot (chair: Estuary Care) and Cas Vorster.


Skinderboom platform spic and span after repairs.

The weekend of 16 / 17 September saw rough seas and extremely high tides. There was significant damage in our area. Kenton lost its iconic Carriage Rock, and much damage was caused at Middle Beach. Our jetty was severely damaged, the board walk requires repairs and the skinderboom platform was partially washed away – one of our benches was retrieved from the Kenton beach!

We applied for disaster funding from the municipality who is applying for disaster funding from the government. Who knows whether we will see any assistance. The result is that BRRAG has commenced approaching contractors for assistance so that we can attempt to restore the main areas for the December holiday period. We sent out a call for assistance via WhatsApp and we thank all our residents and members for your wonderful response. We are hoping to raise R 75 000 to repair the basics. Please assist if you can with payments into our usual account with your reference (street name and number) and the word “damage”.

We are planning for our usual additional security during the holiday season. We need to plan and advise the service provider of the number of guards that we will require in good time as they must hire them in and ensure that they are properly trained to comply with the relevant legislation regarding security guards. This cannot happen overnight. We urge members to commence contributing towards the December security fund so that we can assess our resources for the project as soon as possible. Please donate generously. We require approximately R 200 000 – R 250 000.

Payment can be made as follows:
BRRAG: Standard Bank
Branch Code: 051117
Kenton on Sea
Account Number: 281116393
Reference: Guards.xx.Street.Name.

Please send an email notification to to help us identify the correct houses that are contributing towards this protection plan. Riversbend owners, please encourage neighbours to assist – we have traditionally contracted for fewer guards for a shorter period due to the lack of contributions.

Also note, that the amount above only allows for guards at night (18h00 – 06h00) and a slipway and sea carpark guard during the day. If we receive more than the amount above, daily roving guards can be added.

Markings will be placed in the street outside the houses that contribute for easy identification by the guards during December. If we miss your house, please send an email.


Our slipway carpark has been in dire need of attention and after the storm it now is in really bad shape. This project will cost approximately R 400 000 and we hoe pe to find a sponsor or two to attend to the carpark. Donations: car.Address,name.


Tow path and beach

Over the past two weeks BRRAG and Estuary Care combined forces and removed 4 tons of concrete, rubble and another 3 loads of dead plant material from the river beach area in Boesmansriviermond.

The area covered was from the bridge to the mouth.

Thank you, Cas Castelyn, for transporting the rubble and plant material and Noks of Bushman’s Creek who provided space to dump the material.

Whatsapp group for members

We have established a WhatsApp group for paid up members of BRRAG. It is an additional communication channel to improve communication with members. If you were on this group, all the above news would have been with you as it happened. If you want to join and read our communications or communicate with us, please send your name and surname and cellular number to us by return email. Send it to our email address with the words WhatsApp group in the subject line.

And now for our own eatery – may it last.

House numbers

During times of emergency quick response is required which can be lifesaving.

House numbering in our village is very inadequate and, in many instances, it is not done for many houses in a row and in one street.

Inadequate house numbering also has a negative effect when business or service persons are looking for your house.

Nightwatch and Hi-Tech are very dependent on clear numbering of your property.
Many people are making use of couriers and often they are driving around not able to deliver their packages.

When you are on a street corner ensure that your house number is on the correct street side.

Please ensure that your property is clearly numbered either on the building or outside the wall/fence it is in your best interests. Do not use brass numbers as they will disappear quite quickly.

Fishing licences

And we have some fantastic news!
