Dear Residents of Sunninghill Gardens. Below for downloading is an open letter sent to Mayor Herman Mashaba from the Sunninghill Community Ratepayers Association in regard to the recent property valuations and Rates and Taxes.
We must emphasise that this letter in no way can replace your individual objection (should you have). These objections have to be done in your private capacity
Open letter to Mayor
A community is more than just a group of people living in a particular area. A community is a group of people we lean on when times are tough; our friends, family, and neighbours who are there for us when we need love, support and encouragement. A community is a group of people who share the good times, the successes, who help plan together for the future, who work towards realising a common goal.
Sunninghill Community welcomes back all its members from their holidays, whether spent at home or away. We wish each and every one of you good health, safety, happiness and prosperity in 2018. We thank you for your support in 2017 and hope you will continue to support us in this current year. We ask that you assist us in building this community of ours by informing your neighbours and friends about the work we do to improve our lives in Sunninghill. “The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written.” We hope that you will write these chapters with your Ratepayers Association.
Thank you to all those who assisted us in ending 2017 on a good note. Savika for the wonderful Christmas party held for the children. Urban Spaces for decorating the Sunninghill Gardens entrances with Christmas lights adding to the Christmas holiday atmosphere. To all those EMS, medical and law enforcement, Council employees who worked so that we could relax. Thank you. Sunninghill I am glad to say, although many more residents stayed at home than we are used to, had one of the quietest festive seasons with very little crime occurring.
2018 will I am sure bring with it challenges of its own. Together we can tackle these head-on and achieve success together. Become involved in your suburb. Send us your ideas, offer your expertise. Follow us on our community facebook page https://www.facebook.com/SunninghillRatepayers/ for daily updates.

Seems criminals are not put off by lots of rain.
Yesterday afternoon Savika responded to a panic and alarm from a complex in Tana road. An armed robbery was in progress. When the lookout for the suspects saw the Savika vehicles he notified his accomplices and sped off. The suspects cut the electric fence and jumped into the complex next door.
All the Savika reaction vehicles and managers responded and searched every unit of the complex next door. First they found the firearm and in another unit found the 2 suspects hiding in a garden shed.
They were arrested and Sandton saps took them away. We believe the victim was beaten as she fought with the suspects. She was admitted to Waterfall Hospital, has some injuries but will be fine. We wish her a speedy recovery, both physically and emotionally.
Thanks to the residents who pressed their panic and a very big thank you to the Savika Reaction officers. They were thorough and did not give up until they had searched everywhere. It could have been so much worse if they had not been so swift. Without the arrest these monsters would soon be terrorising someone else. We have subsequently identified the vehicle used and expect more arrests to follow.
Lots of rewards going to be paid out by Sunninghill Community to this entire awesome team
The word “community” can be defined as “a group of people living in the same place or having something in common”.
We are very aware of how fortunate we are to have the “community” we have in Sunninghill. With your, our members ongoing support we are able to do the work we care so deeply about with people we care so deeply for. As we come to the end of 2016, the words that come to mind are “thank you.” This has been an interesting and different year. In a tough economy with crime on the increase and politics everywhere you look, we have remained strong partners. Partners in keeping crime down, keeping unwanted illegal developers out and keeping our vision for our suburb alive.
“Creating a great place to live, work & relax in a secure and beautiful environment”
The Sunninghill Community Ratepayers Board and Sunninghill Gardens Committee wishes all our “family” a safe and enjoyable New Year’s Eve and join you in welcoming in 2017. May 2017 bring us all health, safety, prosperity and our loved ones around us to share and enjoy with.
Linda Gildenhuys – Chairman
ARREST IN SUNNINGHILL
By now many of you would have via social media heard about the arrest at The Core in Sunninghill yesterday afternoon.
I quote from the Sandton Community Police Forum: “An achievement of excellence by Sandton SAPS and JMPD today, with keen observation, solid detective work and detailed intelligence leading to the arrest of 4 suspects in Sunninghill in the basement parking of a local shopping centre. R5 weapons, bullet proof vests, a jamming device and false licence plates were recovered from the scene. One of the arrested is a SAPS Most Wanted Suspect who is now off our streets. This is outstanding work by Sandton SAPS, JMPD and all role-players. The Sandton CPF extends its gratitude and thanks to these men and women who work so hard to keep our community and country safe.’ Continue reading
Every year we are requested to submit requirements to the City Councils Integrated Development Plan (IDP). This is a very important process that enables us as a community to submit requirements that can improve the infrastructure and beautification of our suburb.
Attached is an input form for you to record such requirements. Please complete the form and return them to the Sunninghill Community office at Suncommunity@iafrica.com. We will then consolidate all the requirements and then submit on your behalf.
This is a very important process so please give it your serious commitment.
