Van die inwoners se kant...

Waarom het ek 'n woonstel in Grace Haven - al bewoon ek hom nog nie

Eerstens omdat ek weet dat my vrou op ons ouderdom spesiale versorging en veiligheid nodig het. Dit bied Grace Haven ons. Oor 'n paar maande sal ons beide 80 jaar oud wees.

Tweedens omdat ek tans genoeg tyd en krag het om die woonstel toe te rus en in te rig na ons smaak. Oordeelkundige beplanning is nodig om die beste nut uit die beskikbare ruimte te kry. Dit is iets wat ek nie inderhaas en in nood kan doen nie.

Derdens omdat ek my selfstandigheid as huiseienaar behou. Grace Haven se woonstelle word op 'n deeltitel basis gekoop. Dit is my private eiendom wat ek kan bemaak aan my vrou en my dogter.

Vierdens omdat Suideroord tehuis kontraktueel verbind is aan Grace Haven tot die lewering van verskeie dienste teen billike koste - volgens my behoeftes en volgens my diskressie op my aanvraag.

Vyfdens omdat Grace Haven gerieflik gelee is oorkant Suideroord tehuis  en binne loop afstand van Suidpunt Dienssentrum vir bejaardes, die kerk, die munisipale kantoor  vir aankoop van elektrisiteit , die munisipale biblioteek die banke en winkels is.

Sesdens omdat daar rustigheid, stilte en vrede in Grace Haven heers.

Bredasdorp is a small Overberg town located in the Western Cape Province in South Africa.

Bredasdorp, economic capital of the Cape Agulhas Region, was established around a Dutch Reformed Church in 1838 and is still strongly founded in its agricultural roots. The town was named after Cape Town's first major, Michiel van Breda, also known as the father of South Africa’s merino sheep industry. Van Breda and Pieter Voltelyn van der Byl, could not agree where the church should be built. As a result two churches were built, and two towns, Bredasdorp and Napier, were established.

This town with its population of 22 000 is the centre of the Region’s wheat producing area; Bredasdorp serves largely the local agricultural community. Besides sheep farming, the town also boasts other agricultural activities, including wheat, canola, milk, and indigenous fynbos cultivation. The town is also the location of the offices of Kapula Candles, an international candle company that exports hand-painted candles to Europe and the United States. The population of the town got a boost during the middle 1980's with the establishment of both the Test Flight & Development Centre (South African Air Force) as well as the Overbreg Test Range (Denel) near the small coastal village of Arniston. Development in the town is very rapid, with a number of prominent South African business franchises opening their doors during 2009 and 2010.
