VLYTIGE SKOONMAKERS

HARD AAN DIE WERK

Vlytige Skoonmakers hard aan die werk ter voorbereiding van die vakansieseisoen! In Suiderkruis is daar toegewyde skoonmakers wat al verskeie maande verantwoordelik is vir die skoonhou van die strande asook die parkeerarea, publieke toilette en die braai area. Baie dankie vir julle toewyding! Penelope Wesso en Niel Peters hou ons strande skoon, terwyl personeel van Elmarie’s Cleaning Services verantwoordelik is vir die parkeerarea, publieke toilette en die braai area.

ONTVLUG

Geen gordyn wat lig of sak, slegs die agtergrond

gedruis, die aankondiger se stem wat fluit oor die

mikrofoon. Die spontane, inbars-huppel van

senuweeagtige individue, ongekunsteld, maak

hul verskyning op die wankelrige verhoog.

En so begin die 2017; “60 Minutes Around The

World” -kabaret.  Vier maande se tyd, opoffering,

inoefen, oorbegin, nog net een keer.  Met

waardering, meelewing, samesang, hande klap

en heerlik lag word die gehoor gulhartig

meegesleur. 

Die inisiatief deur Petro Taute, ses jaar gelede

begin, kry jaarliks momentum en ʼn hoogtepunt

op die sosiale kalender van die Suid-Kaapse

dorpie Groot Brakrivier.  Ouderdomme wissel

tussen 19 en 84 en elke liefhebber het knap hul

eie uitrusting gekunstel.  Geen

grimeerdeskundiges of haarstileerders is agter

die skerms doenig nie. Elke kunstenaar vertrou

sy mede-akteur om hand by te sit en met sagte

woorde die onherroeplike kurwes en plooie sag

te maak.

Hierdie bymekaarkom is meer dan net om

fondse te gee aan “Child Welfare Great Brak

River, Sonskynvallei Nasorg en Hartenbos

Diepkloof Kleuterskool.

Die verhoogspeler en die gehoor vorm ʼn

komposisie van ontvlug vir sestig minute van

hierdie dag.

URGENT CALL - Lets all get

NURDLING

An Urgent call from Bewarea, “Let’s all get Nurdling”. Nurdles, a small plastic pellet, have been detected washed up on the local beaches of, Kleinbrak, Dwarsweg Strand and  Dana Bay. These harmful particles will impact our local marine life and environment if left to the elements. Please assist in a massive clean-up operation, collect these “nurdles” wherever possible, do not place them with municipal waste but take them to designated collection points. Ou Pastorie in Great Brak River have offered a free cup of coffee for every 500 ml bottle filled with these “nurdles” handed in at their restaurant in Long Street.

5TH WORLD AQUATHON DAY

By Lesa-Mare Harris Saturday, 11 November 2017 marked the 5th year of a Worldwide Aquathon Day hosted in 79 countries across the globe. Organised by aquarobics instructor, Caroline van Wyk, a group of enthusiastic ladies from Great Brak River proudly represented the Garden Route.  Their aim was to complete a three hour session of aquarobics presented by three instructors. The instructors included, Caroline van Wyk (Great Brak), Corien van der Merwe (Hoekwil) and Di van Eeden (Plettenberg Bay).  This was no splish-splash event and 180 minutes of continuous water exercise may seem daunting, however with music ablast, these ladies moved, grooved and worked out with a determination to take the challenge by the horns, or in this case, the pool noodles. An entry fee was charged for all those taking part and will be donated to the Mooiuitsig Crèche in Greenhaven, that caters for children with special needs. Great morning, great fun, great friends, great exercise, Great Brak made us all so proud.  A special thanks to two amazing companies from Johannesburg, IVM Flooring/Universal Flooring  and Magnet Engineering for their generous contributions.

Eerste Passasierskip arriveer

in Mosselbaai

Die MS Albatros het op 12 November, danksy goeie weersomstandighede, by Mosselbaai aangedoen. Passasiers het vir die dag aan land gegaan en is deur onder andere Uli’s City Tours getrakteer op besienswaardighede in die omgewing, wat ingesluit het ‘n safari by Botlierskop, ‘n grotbesoek by Pinnacle Point en ‘n wandeling deur Mosselbaai se strate. Op 07 en 23 Desember word nog twee passasierskepe verwag en is die hoop uitgespreek dat Mosselbaai Toerisme en die dorp se mense hul beste voetjie sal voorsit vir internasionale toeriste wat ‘n goeie inspuiting vir die dorp en omgewing se ekonomie kan bied.
