Dear Members & Residents,

Last week was a very busy week at the Club with the QACCS golf day and we received the following lovely compliment from Ralph Rex, Town Planner:

“I would once again like to congratulate you and your committee for hosting a memorable QACCS Nationals. Everything, from the golf courses, the venue, the food, the entertainment, the camaraderie, etc. was immaculate. Also pass my thanks/congratulations on to the staff at Mount Edgecombe. For me personally, this was the best hosted Nationals I have attended.” Well done to all my team!

Security News

Dear Residents of Estate 1 and Estate 2

Through CIC (the Common Interest Council) we have successfully consolidated our security services across the entire Estate by utilizing the same service provider – Excellerate (previously known as Enforce Security).  With effect from 1st May 2018, Excellerate will now extend their security services and guarding on Estate 1 as well as Estate 2. We feel confident that Excellerate is the right Security to take on this massive task.

After the tenders had gone out, Michelle Kramer, an independent Security Consultant from IDME Consulting was brought in to assess the presentation of each and every security firm and to gauge the depth of understanding each security firm had of our entire Estate and our future needs.

Michelle comes from an extensive security background including work with Blue Security and Chubb as well as over 16 years as a police woman before setting up IDME Consulting an independent Consulting Company focusing on Security, Safety & Risk Consulting and Auditing. Her sole objective in launching IDME Consulting was focused on Service Delivery and ensuring Accountability & Measurability with Service Providers.

Dear Members and Residents

Through CIC (the Common Interest Council) we have successfully consolidated our security services across the entire Estate by utilizing the same service provider – Excellerate (previously known as Enforce Security).  With effect from 1st May 2018, Excellerate will now extend their security services and guarding on Estate 1 as well as Estate 2.

The extensive security tender evaluation process, headed up by a security committee of Board Members and management, and appointed by CIC, is a prime example of the cooperative success between the two Estates and the Country Club.

We are pleased to advise that Excellerate has been able to take over the employment of all of the Servest personnel who have been deployed in the guarding, patrolling and response functions on Estate 1.  This means that no Servest employee’s services will need to be terminated as a consequence of the service provider change.  In the fullness of time, it will obviously be the prerogative of Excellerate to rotate their employees through various roles and functions at the various locations for which they have responsibility.  However, their immediate priority will be a successful transition in respect of the provision of security services to both Estates.

Should you have any queries, our contact details are as follows:
Peter on admin@meccema1.co.za
Desiree on desiree@mountecc.co.za
Robyn on hello@mountecc.co.za
We are here to help and will address each and every concern!
