Stukkies & Stokkies Boutique Venue started this petition to Lesedi Municipality Phiwe (Lesedi Municipality Phiwe) and

Stukkies & Stokkies has been operating as a wedding venue for 8 years. In these 8 years we have become a renowned wedding venue and have gained popularity with brides especially from Pretoria and Johannesburg, who love the idea of a small town wedding in the picturesque Heidelberg. As a venue, we use only local service providers. We support local businesses for our catering, staff solutions, repairs, maintenance, décor, dj services, hair and make up, accommodation, marriage officers and many more. Our weddings bring feet and money and many shops, restaurants and especially guesthouses benefit from the business our weddings bring to Heidelberg.

Stukkies & Stokkies existed about 12 years before we bought it and converted it into a wedding venue. Before it was a coffee shop and venue. Stukkies & Stokkies is a landmark in Heidelberg,

Recently, our neighbor sent a petition to Lesedi municipality that calls for the closing down of Stukkies & Stokkies. Her reasons are that Stukkies & Stokkies is a disturbance in the area and that our guests park in the street in front of her house. The municipality has served us with a letter stating that we are not allowed to host any weddings until this dispute has been resolved.

We limit our weddings to 80 guests. We have a car guard that is there only to make sure that no one parks in front of the complainant's house. Our weddings are mostly on Saturdays and limited to one per week in most cases. In December we do have more than one wedding per week. We have strict rules with the music and all music must be put off by 12, so we always keep to the municipal rules for residential areas.

We are  asking you to assist us in signing our petition to keep Stukkies & Stokkies open. We are aware that the parking may be a nuisance for our neighbors and have subsequently decided to limit our weddings to 50 guests and we will make sure that we build parking spaces for our guests inside the property. Furthermore we will get a sound level meter to ensure that our sound levels are well within the municipal restrictions. 

Could you kindly assist us with signing our petition to keep our beloved Stukkies & Stokkies open. And to prove that we are not a nuisance in our community, but a landmark and an important role player in Heidelberg's community and future.
