Cravenby Neighbourhood started this petition to Director of Western Cape Education Department

Cravenby residents, the moment has arrived to take back the safety of our beloved neighbourhood and community and advocate for meaningful change against the Abandoned Sports Field on Webnar street.

For the past few years,  we raised our concern about the Abandoned Sports Field and ongoing dumping to the Council and Webnar Primary school. As a consequent of our concerns being ignore,

  • The illegal dumping increased excessively and increased criminal activities
  • Families and children are at risk daily
  • Criminals hide in the trees
  • Hardworking citizens using this route are getting robbed
  • Children playing on the field are surround by dirt and broken glass
  • School children using the road as a route to school and home were robbed
  • Children playing on the field discovered hidden weapons
  • Criminals that steals from the neighbourhood use the sports field to hide stolen goods/objects
  • The field is used to burn copper and other items stolen from the Cravenby and Ravensmead Neighbourhood
  • Criminals are using the field has a hideout to escape from other gang rival in their area

This is highly dangerous considering a primary school is located right next to the field and it is an area a criminal escape to when being chased by the South African police or the Neighbourhood Watch at night!

THE CHANGE

Changing this abandoned Sports Field into a positive alternative will benefit both communities of Cravenby and Ravensmead, and the Ravensmead South African Police Department.

Taking action against the abandonment of Sports Field will,

  • Decrease the dumping, which will decrease criminal activities
  • Leave no room/spaces to hide weapons
  • Eradicate or locate the trees where it is not misused
  • Create a safer route for our workers, family and children
  • Increase the use of the field/area for its intended purpose

Please help your fellow community members and our hardworking and resilient Neighbourhood Watch team to form a safer community for all residents, families, and children!
