    Had a wonderful stay for a week in Fish Hoek. Sadly I had my petrol stolen twice whilst parked in Berg road. When we spotted the fuel running out at the garage , the kind guys at Pitstop offered to help me. They put the car up on the lift, reconnected the pipe and clip and flatly refused any payment. Support them if you can. Regards, Duncan Gohl

    What a beautifully laid out website. Very informative and some wonderful pictures. I'm also very proud of my mum, Sheila Robinson for her contribution (wetland flower pictures). Her grandchildren love walking around the wetland with her as she points out and names all the flowers and trees.

    I hope you can satisfy my curiosity. I grew up in FH and recently paid a visit to family there. We were interested to know the origin of the bleached white stump on the grass embankment which would have been behind the bathing shed, now demolished, on Jagers Walk. We believe it to be whalebone, could this be the case?

    Hi, I used to go to Fish Hoek Beach as as child of about 11 (45 years ago) and we could listen to Christian Stories from a club called CCM, I think. They used to build a huge sand-castle on the beach and we would sit on it and then they would tell us biblical stories. If I remember correctly, they also had a banner which they put on top of the sand-castle to advertise the holiday club. I think that someone took pictures of these gatherings and the sandcastle and wondered if there was a local newspaper at the time which had published same? Could you please advise me where I might be able to get a copy of these newspapers? I have no problem looking through old editions to find the pictures, if necessary as I am keen to have the pictures. Many thanks for your help Jeanette Kent Cell - 083 651 2838 H - 021 5583712

    I am trying to contact the Fish Hoek tourist office to speak to someone but could not find anything on the internet except this so I am making my comment here and would aprreciate a response. I have been here 4 days and every morning we have ALL BEEN WOKEN AT 6.00 AM by very loud blasts on a train hooter. Unless this is stopped we will certainly NOT BE COMING back to Fish Hoek. We are from the UK. Can you imagine going on holiday and being woken so early. And almost every train thereafter the same thing so it is impossibloe to go back to sleep. Our young children wake up and if you are a parent you know that is your worst nightmare. Tired irratble children spoil a long awaited holiday. The sirens are bad enough but I understand you have to have some sound - but not those ridiculously loud hooters. This will drive tourists away. Bruce Shepherd

    Hi, my family came to Fishhoek in 1969 from Western Australia on a working holiday to S.A. and we tayd in my Grandmother's house which was in Recreation Rd very near to the High School. The Kirsten family lived next door (Linda and Diane, twins). Allan James lived almost opposite, a very sweet special person. Donald Rother (friend) Reven Arbrahamse (not sure spelt correctly) Heidi Furness, Colin Brown, Kenneth Mushet, just some I can remember. We spent many happy days at the beautiful beach and Jaggers Walk. When my sister Carol and I were little our families spent many happy times there, my cousin Lesley Richards lived there for a while.Currently living in Secret Harbour Western Australia.

    Re: Jager's Walk. Dear Sirs,I was brought up in South Africa and spent many happy holidays in Fish Hoek with my brother and parents. My Mum and Dad used to love sitting on Jager's Walk and swimming from the rocks. On a recent visit I noticed many small memorial plaques attached to the benches on Jager's Walk. I would very much like to do the same in memory of my parents and brother.Can you direct me to the right person to speak to about this possibility? Hi Howard, you should contact the beach manager, Harold Ross, by email at : Mr. Ross did say that Fish Hoek benches were liable to be vandalised. Some benchs have lost their plaques, but still "belong" to some-one. Good luck! ~Donald.

    My parents were transferred by the S. A. Railways in about 1933 to Fish Hoek. they became very great friends (for life) with the EthEL NEFDT and her husband. We visited, the widow, EthEL at her home in Fish Hoek in 1978 and had lunch with her at a small local restaurant in the center of FISH HOEK. I expect that she is dead by now and may be buried in Fish Hoek. Her daughter JOY NEFDT was a well known horse rider in the Cape area winning trophys for her abilities. She evidently married into a very rich family - connected with the Cunard Steamship Lines in Cape town is there any way I could get a copy of the newspaper announcement of her funeral.
