Benefits

Membership not only expresses a personal commitment towards the safety and security of one’s own family, but also a social responsibility towards the well-being of the greater community. The cost of membership is only R290/month and is by far the cheapest of all the gated communities in the area, especially when one considers the value-adds that membership brings. A yellow reflective board is issued to each member, and is displayed in a prominent place which is easily visible by a reaction vehicle from the street. This member board remains the property of the Executive. Members of Eldosec Security Village enjoy the following benefits.
