Hughendon/Meadows

The Hughenden/Meadows area borders Imizamo Yethu in the west, and extends eastward, through Meadows, to Oakwood Estate, which borders Oakhurst. The southern border is the notorious Pipe Track while the northern border is made up of the Hout Bay Cemetery, Main Road and the road reserve.

The area contains approximately 120 properties of which about 50% house a neighbourhood watch member.

Committee: Safety and security in the area is managed and strategised by a small committee that meets monthly. Currently, the committee elects one of the committee members as chairperson every three months. The chairperson attends the HBNW EXCO meetings.

Social: A social braai is usually held on the Meadows open space within the first few months of the year.
