It's an increase of 14.4% year on year.<br><br>'I am really happy with the solid start to the programme. This past long weekend was an incredibly busy one on the City's beaches, and we're expecting even bigger crowds over the coming weeks. Please find the Identikidz registration desk if you're visiting one of the participating beaches, and get your  little ones tagged. It's safe, brings peace of mind and makes it so much easier to link children with their families should they become separated or wander off,' said the Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health, Councillor Patricia Van der Ross.<br><br>Participating beaches are Big Bay, Camps Bay, Fish Hoek, Gordon's Bay, Harmony Park, Lagoon Beach, Melkbosstrand, Milnerton Beach, Mnandi, Monwabisi, Muizenberg, Sea Point and surrounding area, Silwerstroom, Strand and Strandfontein.</p> <figure><img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/Dane%20Moses_Cllr%20Vd%20Ross_Rolinda%20Allie.jpeg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1069px;" /> </figure> <p>​​The project will run over the following periods:</p><ul><li>23 – 26 December</li><li>30 – 31 December</li><li>1 January</li><li>6 – 7 January<br></li><li>13 – 14 January</li><li>20 – 21 January </li></ul><p>On 26 December and 1 January, Identikidz will also be available at Maidens Cove.</p> <br> <strong>End </strong><br> <p> <br> </p>2023-12-17T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#91b32b75-e5b2-4c6f-aa36-8403fd64d234;L0|#091b32b75-e5b2-4c6f-aa36-8403fd64d234|Identikidz Programme;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GPP|#d5141e36-ff62-46df-b0f1-9b4b0b021e67;GP0|#bd01eb1e-7d40-47f8-913c-811c687e6ce1;L0|#0bd01eb1e-7d40-47f8-913c-811c687e6ce1|Beaches10
