The brand new stainless steel railings were installed in June to replace the existing wooden railings at a cost of R90 000.
The ablution facilities at the beach were vandalised in March this year with toilets, windows and pipes all damaged and/or broken. a door at the campsite was vandalised.

Both projects were completed using budget from the 2020/21 Financial year.
