GEORGE NEWS - Ongoing vandalism at Gwaiing beach has become extremely costly with ablution facilities seriously damaged and the lifeguard lookout tower burnt down over the past weeks.
The ablution facilities at the beach that were vandalised on the night of 29 March will cost George Municipality around R30 000 to repair.
Two weeks before, the lifeguard tower was destroyed in a fire and a replacement tower will cost an estimated R150 000. The ablution facility's toilets, windows and pipes were all damaged or broken.
The Directorate of Community Services was able to restore the ablution facility to a usable standard before the past Easter weekend. However, during the Easter Weekend a door at the campsite was again vandalised.
George Municipality has laid criminal charges with the police.
