BBRA

The BBRA needs additional Committee Members to fill portfolios currently vacant or due to become so by virtue of the retirement of some current members.

Some of the current committee members have served in a voluntary capacity for a number of years and we feel that new blood is needed. Additionally a couple of posts are vacant and need to be filled so that we can deliver effective service to our community.

Please therefore give some thought to joining our team and getting the resultant satisfaction from partaking in our endevours to improve service delivery. Nominations and/or volunteers names should be E-Mailed to me at the below address by Saturday 16 December 2017.

All the best

BETTYS BAY RATEPAYERS ASSOCIATION
Annual Membership Fee

Good Day

It is that time of the year again where our annual membership fee falls due on 1 November 2017.

The subscriptions for the current year are R60-00 per person registered in our books. Deposits should be made to our bank account as follows:

Bettys Bay Ratepayers Association
ABSA Hermanus Branch
Code 632005
Cheque Account 4066616439

Please quote your surname or company/trust name in which the property is registered together with your erf number in the reference field for identification purposes.

Lastly we would appreciate your effecting payment in the following order so that we can save unnecessary bank charges. As a matter of interest ABSA now levies a fee of R30-00 for every cheque deposit. Payments by EFT cost us nothing. When cheques are posted to us we can bulk deposit same and as such save substantial bank charges as they are levied per cheque deposit and not per cheque.

  1. EFT payment
  2. Post cheque to us at
    P.O. Box 48, Bettys Bay 7141
  3. Deposit cash to our account

As it is far easier and quicker to send out notifications by E-Mail we would appreciate your supplying us with your E-Mail address if it has changed for future usage. You can supply this address to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We value your membership and the fees collected help us in addressing the problems which we experience in our unique area.

Should you no longer wish to remain as members of our organization please advise us accordingly.

As indicated at our last AGM certain changes to our constitution are envisaged. In terms of the current constitution a quorum of 50 members is required at the AGM to make any changes to our constitution. Please therefore make every effort to attend so that we can validate these changes.

Annual Membership Fees

The Bettys Bay Ratepayers Association intercedes on behalf of members with various authorities in respect of matters which affect residents/property owners in our town.

In order to give us “clout” we need to represent as many residents/property owners as possible. At the moment we have 401 paid up members and are the largest ratepayers association in the Overstrand area.

It is imperative that we increase our membership to give us more say in matters which affect us all. To this end we urge you to either join us or if you are already a member to encourage others to sign up.

For those of you who are already members kindly settle your membership fees as soon as possible.

It has been our position in the past to disseminate local information to a broad base of residents by E-Mail whether they are members or not but in the future we will confine this spread of information to members only. There seems to be an impression out there that all property owners who pay rates to the Overstrand Municipality are automatically members but this is not so. To become a member we require the following information:

Title
Name/s
Erf number/s
Contact details i.e. postal address, telephone number/s & most important E-mail address
Name in which the property is registered

This information can be E-Mailed to me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

As far as the fee goes this can be deposited to our account as follows:

Bettys Bay Ratepayers Association
ABSA Hermanus
Branch Code 632005
Cheque Account 4066616439
In the reference field of your deposit please quote your surname and erf number for identification purposes.

To avoid unnecessary bank fees please make payment in the following ways in the order
stated either:

  • By eft payment to our bank account
  • By posting a cheque to us at P.O. Box 48, Bettys Bay 7141
  • By depositing cash to our bank account


Please do not deposit cheques direct to our account as the bank charges are horrendous. As these charges are per deposit and not per cheque we bulk deposit cheques forwarded to us by post and therefore save considerably in this manner.

Our financial year ended on 31 October 2015 and therefore the annual fee of R60-00 per person becomes payable on 1 November 2015. In terms of our constitution your fee is payable by 31 January 2015 at the latest to avoid termination of your membership.

Lastly we would like to state that the elected committee which serves your association does this on a volunteer basis and receives no remuneration for this service which takes up considerable personal time. To this end we need to broaden our committee base so as to address all the areas needing attention in our village in order that they are actioned and thus reduce the work load of those currently serving on the committee. So help us to help you by contacting us if you are willing to become involved in local affairs.

Adrian de Kock (Secretary & Treasurer BBRA)
