TEARS Tree Project

kirstenhofTEARS Animal Rescue has put together The “TEARS Tree Project”. A Christmas Tree sits in the foyer of Kirstenhof Primary School and is covered in cardboard balls with a picture of a cat/dog/kitten or puppy who currently is waiting for their forever home at TEARS.

On the back is that animals Christmas wish for toys, blankets, food etc. Please visit Kirstenhof Primary School and choose an animal to either give a loving home too or provide much needed goodies for. The last day for drop off is Wednesday the 9th December at 13h00 and all items can be dropped off and placed under the tree.

Halloween

Notice from the Kirstenhof Crime Watch:
Children in our neighbourhood often like to dress up for Halloween and go “trick or treating”. If you would like to participate and have them ring your doorbell, please decorate your gate with something “Halloween-ish” (e.g. an orange balloon, jack-o-lantern etc.) and get your bowl of treats ready.

While the Kirstenhof Crime Watch can’t prevent children from ringing your doorbell should you not want to participate, they are doing their best to spread the word that children should only visit the ‘decorated’ houses.

The KCW also suggests that children walk in groups, preferably with adults. Please remember that anything suspicious, apart from the Halloween monsters, can be reported to CVIC on 0860-00-2669 or to one of the community Whatsapp groups.

The Burning Hills of Cape Town

The Burning Hills of Cape Town

The massive fire raging in the southern peninsula mountains is set to burn for at least another two days – perhaps longer.

With the Cape Town Cycle Tour taking place on Sunday, the battle to contain the fire raged on on Tuesday, with helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft and ground teams fighting the blaze spread out over a vast area – fuelled by thick fynbos that has not been burnt since the huge fire of 2000.
