Crime-free Christmas and New Year for Paternoster

Paternoster’s official holiday season, from 16 December 2014 to 12 January 2015, was completely crime-free (with not a single incident being reported), as announced per a recent mailer sent by the Chairperson of the Paternoster Community Policing Sub-Forum (CPSF), Mias Nieuwoudt.

“This is an unprecedented achievement in Paternoster, and entirely due to the vigilance and unwavering commitment of Pato Buurtwag, with the police playing a supporting role,” says Nieuwoudt. Crime has been an unfortunate reality that has been affecting hotels, guest houses and self-catering cottages in the Paternoster area for several years. High unemployment figures (aided by workers relying on seasonal fishing) saw a steep increase in robberies, which in turn resulted in a decline in tourism, affecting the town negatively.

Through the combined efforts of local business owners and residents, the Pato Buurtwag (which currently consists of 18 volunteers under the capable leadership of Jan Losper) has shown that Paternoster is a safe holiday destination. Says South of Africa representative, Leigh Longden, General Manager of the 5-star Abalone House & Spa and Paternoster Cottages collection, “Our guests have commented on the fantastic change in the atmosphere of Paternoster and a massive number has already booked their next December holiday!”
