PS for those of you too young to know the old joke: A Camel is a Horse designed by a Committee!

The following Committee Members were elected via eMail at the 2020 AGM during May. It is with great sadness and regret that we have to announce that Mr. Patrick Labrosse was not available for re-election as he died at home on 9th June 2019 after a protracted illness. Mr. Labrosse was a tireless worker for the community of the City Bowl, with a great knowledge and love for our priceless architectural heritage that is gradually being lost. Please read the tribute to him in the Word document at the very bottom of this page.

Additionally our Secretary of many years, Gregor Leigh, has reluctantly had to step down due to extensive other commitments. Gregor has been a tireless worker and a tower of strength on the CIBRA committee and will be sorely missed. We wish him and his family all the best for the future. A tribute to him was included in our AGM presentation, and he was presented subsequently with a suitable memento in recognition of his service.

Our Ward 77 Councillor introduces himself:

        Brandon Golding - Ward 77


        Mobile: 082 565 0828

I was born and raised in Cape Town. I have lived in the City Bowl for 12 years and have been an active member of the DA for 7 of those years. Besides political activity, I am one of the founder members of the Gardens Neighbourhood Watch and through this involvement have been an active member of The Cape Town Community Policing Forum for about 8 years, having served as both the Chairperson and the Cluster Chairperson, which extended my responsibility from Camps Bay to Langa.

 I have previously worked as a business process engineer and software architect, but will now focus on the role of Ward Councillor.

I believe that active citizenry enables better governance. I therefore encourage all residents to engage with civic structures such as CIBRA so that their voice may be heard and so that the elected public representative may better serve their communities.
