Oranjezicht Higgovale Blocks (Sectors)

To effectively manage and co-ordinate activity, we have divided the area into 6 smaller blocks (sectors). We group communications according to blocks with Street Communicators (WhatsApp groups) for most streets in the neighbourhood. This allows us to isolate problems if necessary and to keep communication specific and relevant. It also facilities quick reach of residents that are not members in the event of a major emergency as the Street Communicator groups consist of members and non-members. We work together to enhance OH Watch.

If you are unsure of your block (sector) please email us, [email protected]

Funding & Donations

Membership to OH Watch is free but an annual donation of R1000 (or R100/month) will be so welcomed. 

OH Watch is a voluntary non profit organisation, however there are numerous costs that are incurred in setting up and running an initiative such as this. We continuously work on new initiatives and projects for the neighbourhood and need your assistance in making these a reality. We especially appeal to those people who are unable to give their time consider a financial donation. If you are able to make a donation this would be greatly appreciated. Please contact, [email protected] should you have any questions regarding membership, donations or funding.
