Fish Hoek 100 and Beyond (a non profit organisation) was established by a group of volunteers  from business and community members in Fish Hoek.  

We are committed to ensuring that the centenary is celebrated, creating an inclusive legacy and supporting real development of the community. We are excited about the opportunities offered by the Fish Hoek Centenary to build into the future.

We arranged and facilitated a variety of events throughout the centenary year. We committed to ensuring that the centenary was celebrated, creating an inclusive legacy and supporting real development of the community. These included the following:

Ian Eagan-Fowler, Fish Hoek 100 and Beyond co-chairperson, said the committee members are all voluntary and passionate about the future of the Fish Hoek Valley.

He said the group welcomed any assistance in making this milestone in Fish Hoek’s history a significant and memorable one.

OPEN SPACE TECHNOLOGY

Mr Valentine said a public participation process, also known as Open Space Technology, was held on Human Rights Day, March 21 and attended by more than 50 residents.

The aim of the day was to exchange ideas around what social and community issues could be addressed as part of the Fish Hoek centenary milestone as well as beyond.

The outcome indicated that safety, security, tourism, greening, methods of addressing the growing homeless population in Fish Hoek as well as revamping the main road of the broader Fish Hoek Valley and surrounds, were among residents’ main concerns.

He said the role of the group’s organising committee was to organise certain key signature events and encourage and help facilitate residents and other interested parties to organise other activities and events that will help make a great success of the celebrations as well as contributing to the upliftment of the Fish Hoek Valley beyond this year.
The group aims to build on work already done during the initial phase of the centenary celebrations including the 2018 Spring Splash, Bash and Art Auction, and the recent plaque unveiling and commemoration of Mrs Balls’ birthday.

Fish Hoek Lions Club and Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope combined forces on Saturday, 15th September to host a Spring tea for the senior citizens of Fish Hoek as part of the Fish Hoek 100 & Beyond centenary celebrations. 
The hosts of the 18 tables decorated their tables beautifully, the entertainment was varied and enjoyable – the Izivunguvungu Youth Band, the Fish Hoek Scottish Dancers and songs of ‘years gone by’ beautifully sung in solo and duet by Shirley Botes and Cris Riego de Dios, who was also the accomplished MC for the afternoon, resplendent in his matching yellow jacket & sunshades!

There were lots of lucky draw prizes and much reminiscing about the years gone by.
Support was provided by the Silvermine Accademy Interactors, the Fish Hoek Rangers and Girl Guides, the EVS Emergency Firefighter Services and CMR
A huge thanks to all who hosted tables, made flowers to decorate the hall, supplied food, Harry Goemans Nursery for the loan of the fresh flowers, the Sub Council 19 & Felicity Purchase for their support.
Well done to everyone and THANK YOU

The Incredibles, the Motley Minion Misfits and the Fish Hoek Fairies were just 3 of the 17 teams that made their way to the Fish Hoek Life Saving Club for the start of the Fish Hoek 100 and Beyond Scavenger Hunt Experience on the 8th September.

The participants wore different costumes and vibrant colours that added to the jovial atmosphere of the day as they prepared to compete in an ‘Amazing Race’ style event.

Each Team of 4 was handed an envelope containing clues to whacky tasks (ranging from singing Karaoke, doing the Mexican wave with complete strangers and finding strange objects) that were positioned around the Peninsula.

Each Team had to complete as many tasks as possible and return to the finish line by 4pm.  The Team that  completed the most tasks and earned the most bonus points in the allotted time would result as the eventual Champion’s and walk away with the Fish Hoek 100 and Beyond floating trophy (specially designed and donated by local resident, sculptor and trophy maker Eric Tollner of Red Earth www.redearth.co.za ).

The day was filled with laughter, fun and spirit as the teams raced around the southern Peninsula in an attempt to complete the tasks.  

The day ended back at the Life Saving Club, with some borewors rolls, refreshments and a prize giving ceremony, where Team “Oh Dear” walked away with the Spirit award, Team WWWF walked away with some fun prizes as runners up and the Daxie Diva’s took top honors and were crowned the first Fish Hoek Scavenger Hunt Experience champions and walked away with the coveted trophy.

The Fish Hoek 100 and Beyond team along with our partners for this event, the Scavenger Hunt Experience organizers, would like to thank all establishments and shop owners who participated in the day, along with everyone who donated prizes, as well as the local resident’s and all competitors for an amazing day.
