News Updates today in St Francis Bay

1.  BAY ESTATES WEDNESDAY KNITTING CLUB

Our aim is to knit at least one blanket per month, however should other locals join us we'll set the aim higher.  To those interested, feel free to join us every Wednesday at 1pm for an hour at the Bay House or drop off your home knitted squares (30by30)  to be added.  Some of us in the office are new to knitting where others pro's, but together, although this is a small gesture of good will, we're hoping that in time we can offer further warmth in donations of more blankets, jerseys, socks, gloves and beanies.



Gold Bless and keep warm.
The Bay Busy Bee's.

2.  ARTICLE FROM ST FRANCIS CONNECT - Washed up containers are safe

We can relax, the containers, one of which local Eric Stewart discovered on the wild side of Cape St Francis, have finally been opened by a hazardous materials team.

The five tanks, spread out on beaches between St Francis Bay and the Gamtoos River mouth, were found to be empty and safe to salvage. The containers were suspected of potentially containing dangerous substances.




Xtreme Projects has been contracted by the owners under the authority of South African Maritime Safety Authority to survey and salvage the tanks.

The salvage attempt will be made on the next spring tide of 4 August, provided weather conditions allow the operation, otherwise they will try again on 19 August.

The five containers were torn off the Chinese ship Anguan Gjing, which was sailing from Durban to Nigeria in heavy seas on 17 July, this year.


3. ST FRANCIS CONNECT ARTICLE: WATER RESTRICTIONS
