Hout Bay Good News is a community collaboration project powered by the Hout Bay Partnership. Hout Bay Good News was founded by the Community Collaboration Forum when they noticed that far too often only negative stories reach the front pages of our local and national publications and while these do unfortunately share certain current realities,  those of us on the ground in our communities are also acutely aware of the many amazing stories of organizations, individuals, and whole communities uniting to create a positive and brighter future.

We hope that by sharing and promoting the good news of our bay we can further unite the areas and introduce community members to other neighbors, activities, and events that they might not otherwise hear about.

We are open to and encourage all submissions from any community member!

Some of Hout Bay Good News Projects Include:

Monthly Hout Bay Good News Letter provides a brief monthly overview of announcements, news, and updates from Hout Bay’s many community organizations, groups, and social enterprises to assist you to stay connected and involved!
