Preparing pupils for 4IR

Robotics, coding programme

rolled out at province’s schools

AMANDA NANO

The 15th annual Information

and Communication

Technology Summit took place

at the East London International

Convention Centre from

November 20 to 21.

ICT summit founder and

executive chairperson Motse

Mfuleni said every summit was

focused on a different theme

highlighting key topical issues

within the ICT sector.

“Earlier this year, President

Cyril Ramaphosa encouraged us

as a country to embrace and

harness the Fourth Industrial

Revolution [4IR] as it brings

digital evolution to enhance

economic transformation, job

creation, education skills and

spatial integration, among

o t h e r s ,” Mfuleni said.

In her keynote video

address, telecommunications

and postal services

minister Stella Ndabeni

Abrahams said there was a need

to boost the economy for

i nve s t m e n t .

“There is no reason why fibre

optics, batteries and other tools

are manufactured outside the

c o u n t r y,” Abrahams said.

“We will also consult with

the ICT industry for expertise

and knowledge to take SA to

greater heights.”

Schools in the province h ave

benefitted from digital training,

which includes robotics and

coding programme roll-outs.

At the forefront of this is a

partnership between the

and Walter Sisulu University

(WSU) to train schools in

science and technology.

The Fort Hare School of

Science and Technology

(FOSST) Discovery Centre has

equipped pupils from

Mdantsane, Komani and

Butterworth with digital skills.

“Th e y ’ve learned coding and

how to assemble Lego robots,

and we are trying to ensure that

with the introduction of 4IR,

they also know the new careers

open to them,” FOSST ICT

specialist Xolani Gotyi said.

The creates a platform to

discuss innovative ideas,

industry trends and issues.

Mfuleni said: “One of the

critical discussions is the rollout

of the multi-million-rand

broadband project in the EC,

which is meant to provide widearea

networks to enable Wi-Fi

connectivity that allows the

various provincial departments

to interact with other

government facilities easily.”

Food Garden helps feed the needy

Checkers provides training and

equipment at Catch Projects

AMANDA NANO

East London local Susan Davies,

74, is doing her bit to help

disadvantaged people around

Gonubie with a food garden.

The Catch Projects is located

on a four-hectare property in the

Gonubie area.

“I believe in helping all

God’s children and when I

retired, I knew I had to do

something to help, especially

the disadvantaged people in

East London,” Davies said.

“The garden at Catch

Projects has benefited from a

water tank and infrastructure,

fencing, gardening tools,

compost, mulch, seedlings,

herbs, fruit trees, educational

material and training

wo r k s h o p s .

“The trainers have been

absolutely amazing and the

community members have

“Some of the workshops

have been attended by about 70

people from the community.”

The garden has

flourished with the assistance of

Checkers, which provides

support to food gardens all over

SA.

More than 87 gardens have

been invested in by the retailer,

providing meals to more than

400,000 people.

“A big thank you to Checkers

for the equipment and training,”

Davies said.

Masimanyane tackles gender based

violence and women’s rights in SA

PURPLE BLOOM

SIVENATHI GOSA

In a highly “gender-unequal and

patriarchal country like South

Africa, violent and entrenched

masculinities legitimise men’s

power over women,”

Masimanyane Women’s Rights

International

r e p r e s e n t a t ive X o l e l wa

Pona said at a dialogue on

gender-based violence held at

Nkqonkqweni Primary School

recently. “This exacerbates

sexual violence, and naturally,

women have severe anxieties

about the repercussions and

backlash if they speak out.

“So why don’t girls and

women come forward to tell

their stories of sexual assault?

“Research shows the reasons

are complex and influenced by

a web of inter-related, sociopsychological

factors.

“These include feelings of

shame and humiliation, selfblame,

fear and even denial.

“These are influenced by the

prevailing patriarchal and

cultural norms of societies and

communities that suppress,

silence and shame these girls

and women.”

Pona said the purpose of the

dialogue was to educate

communities on how the justice

system worked in terms of the

processes aimed at addressing

GBV. “This dialogue has

given opportunities to

community members to clarify

any misinformation and

misunderstandings they have

around gender-based violence

cases and to strengthen existing

GBV coordination in the

identified wards on monitoring

the outcomes and commitments

of stakeholders,” she said.

Pona said the programme

was proposed after

Masimanyane had

worked within the communities

of several BCM wards.

“The cries of the

communities regarding the

failure of the justice system to

provide them with closure on

the cases which are reported are

becoming louder and this is

exacerbated by the lack of

information on the justice

system processes,” she said.

STRANDED: The mystery boat, the Sea-

Queen, found stranded on the Sunrise-On-

Sea beach by residents

MATTHEW FIELD

A mysterious boat has caused

more damage than expected

after being found stranded at

Sunrise-On-Sea last Friday.

The boat had been stranded

there since at least Thursday

night.

Residents allege that the

boat, a red Stingray inflatable

named Sea-Queen, belongs to

the department of

environmental affairs.

The GO! & Express tried to

confirm this with department

spokesperson Albi Modise but

no response had been r e c e ive d

yet from him by the time of

going to print.

One resident, who asked to

remain anonymous, said

attempts to retrieve the boat

were not only unsuccessful but

had also led to the destruction

of Sunrise-On-Sea’s boardwalk.

“They [the team sent to

recover the boat] came over

from the Rainbow Valley side,

but they didn’t turn around.

“Instead, they just drove over

the boardwalk.”

When the GO! & Express

arrived on Saturday, the boat

was still stranded and there was

evidence that parts of it had

been stripped off.

The GO! also noted that the

boardwalk was broken almost to

the point of being unusable.

DESTROYED: The damaged Sunrise-On-Sea

boardwalk after a vehicle allegedly there to

try retrieve the Sea-Queen, drove over it

Boardwalk broken

near mystery boat

Residents blame ‘re t r i e v a l ’ vehicle for damage

Holes had been punched in

the boards at regular intervals

and their was a large muddy

track that had been carved into

the ground next to it.

It looked like a heavy vehicle

had recently driven over it with

one side in the mud and the

other side riding on the

b o a r dwa l k .

The Sunrise-On-Sea boardwalk

was initiated and designed

by the Kwelera National

Botanical Garden.

Kwelera National Botanical

Garden natural estate manager

Charlie Maimela said they had

“already started initiating the

repairing process for the boardwa

l k ”.

St George’s Presbyterian Church

celebrates their 135th

anniversary with a special

celebratory service on Sunday.

Representatives from the

Presbytery of Amathole and the

Central Office of the Uniting

Presbyterian Church of Southern

Africa have been invited.

The church’s history can be

traced all the way back to the

1800s, when East London’s first

Presbyterian church was

established on the West Bank in

1874.

As businesses began moving

their premises over to the East

Bank, Presbyterian

congregations soon followed.

West Bank Presbyterian

C h u rch ’s Reverend Russell

began conducting services on

the East Bank in 1881, starting

in the railway waiting room

before moving to the Mutual

Hall.

Finally, a letter signed by 102

East Bank residents was sent to

the Presbytery of Kaffraria,

requesting a separation from the

West Bank Church.

The next significant

milestone came in April 1884

when Rev John Ferguson landed

in East London while en route to

Au s t ra l i a .

An arrangement with the

Free Church of Scotland resulted

in Ferguson agreeing to remain

in East London for three years

and he was inducted as minister

to the East Bank Presbyterian

congregation on July 1 1884.

SPECIAL SERVICE: St George’s Presbyterian Church is

celebrating its 135th anniversary this weekend P i c t u re :

SUPPLIED

Ferguson ended up

remaining in East London for 22

years, only retiring in 1906 due

to ill health.

The first Presbyterian church

on the East Bank was built on

the corner of Oxford and

Albany Streets and officially

opened in December 1884.

In response to growing

membership, extensions were

made in 1894 to accommodate

100 more people.

This proved insufficient and

it was decided that an entirely

new church would need to be

built that could seat 700 people.

Plans were approved in

August 1899 and the official

Foundation Stone Ceremony

was conducted on January 6

1900. A meeting of the

Deacons’ Court beforehand

decided on the name of “St

George’s”. In addition to a large

pipe organ, the new church also

included a pulpit and baptismal

font donated by James Blaine.

St George’s Presbyterian

Church was officially opened

for public worship on June 1

1902, with the original building

being used as a hall until the

construction of St George’s

Memorial Hall in Park Avenue

in 1953.

All Blacks Club reaches out

‘Kind and generous’ donations

bring joy to many beneficiaries

DESMOND COETZEE

The King William’s Town All

Blacks Supporters Club made a

difference in the lives of

Breidbach residents during their

outreach programme last

weekend.

As part of the club’s

vision, chairperson Arnold

Bossr handed over various cash

vouchers and chess sets in

B r e i d b a ch .

The beneficiaries were two

soup kitchens, the Zion

Congregational Church and

Good Samaritans, the Kings

Chess Club, as well as athletes

Keenan Groep and Leah Izally.

During the handing-over

ceremony, Bossr told the

audience the All Blacks

Supporters Club’s vision was to

give back to the community.

“As a club, we have staged

many fundraising events during

the year which were wellsupported

by our community

and their support has made it

possible for us to have this

e ve n t ,” Bossr said.

“The club was established in

2015 and every year we reach

out to our communities within

King and its surrounding

organisations through donations

to charity organisations.”

In 2018, three Breidbach

soup kitchens benefitted from

cash donations and 2017 saw

that were then distributed. Kings

Chess Club founder Lawrence

Gosling was happily surprised

by the donation of six chess

sets.

He said the All Blacks

Supporters Club had re-affirmed

his belief in the basic goodness

of people, as they were in dire

need of equipment due to the

many players they helped train

and develop.

“You have surprised us with

this kind and generous donation

of the chess sets.

“Your goodness has now

empowered us to continue our

quest of searching for the next

South African Grandmaster,”

Gosling said.

Heidi thanked the club for the

donation of sports

equipment for her son.

“I appreciate this gesture to

my son from the bottom of my

heart and will always remember

this day,” she said.

Adventure for all

MATTHEW FIELD

In 2003, the world was cursed

forever with the unholy

nightmare-fuel that was Mike

M e ye r ’s live-action adaptation

of Cat in the Hat.

Now in 2019, Netflix seeks

to redeem the sullied name of

Doctor Seuss films with their

new animated series, this time

based on Green Eggs and Ham.

Now by all rights, this series

should not work.

The source material is a 64-

page children’s story by possibly

the greatest nonsense-rhymer

e ve r.

The plot is reminiscent of

1987 comedy Planes, Trains and

Automobiles with Michael

Douglas’ curmudgeonly Guy

Am I filling in for Steve Martin’s

Neal Page and Adam DeVine’s

over-excited Sam I Am taking

over from John Candy’s Del

Griffith.

While the titular food does

make occasional appearances,

the main story is more focused

on Guy and Sam’s attempts to

An inside peek in KFC’s kitchen

AMANDA NANO

KFC Cambridge held an exclusive

Colonel’s Kitchen Tour last

Wednesday to get a finger lickin’

good taste of how their food is

prepared.

“We wanted to share our unique

back-of-house process that ensures

we deliver fresh, good quality food

every time and to also debunk some

misconceptions around our food,”

KFC Africa Public Affairs director

Zinhle Modiselle said.

The tour started with a quick

rundown of procedures, the first

being for staff to wear hairnets and

remove all jewellery.

This is done to ensure high

standards are met and for hygiene

purposes.

After entering the kitchen, the

first order of business is a vigorous

hand wash, followed by hand

sanitiser to remove any excess dirt

and then air drying.

Hand washing is done every 30

minutes to ensure hygiene.

Starting at the back where

deliveries are made, the tour went

through the arrival process of the

chicken from the truck to the

f r e e z e r.

KFC sources its chicken from

reputable SA suppliers, which is

delivered three times a week in

temperature-controlled cold trucks.

The chickens are defrosted

i n d iv i d u a l l y.

To avoid cross-contamination,

all other food items are kept in a

separate cooler from the chicken.

The chicken is then handbreaded

and rolled in KFC’s secret

combination of 11 herbs and spices,

with the drumsticks breaded twice

to avoid cracked skin caused by

bubbles during the cooking process.

Cooked chicken is drained of

excess oil and is kept warm at no

less than 60°C.

FINGER LICKIN’ GOOD: Freshly prepared chicken while on the Colonel’s Kitchen Tour at KFC

Cambridge last Wednesday Picture: SUPPLIED

Everything in the kitchen is

about timing, with several clocks on

the wall to guide how long it takes

to make each food item.

The tour party were then given a

demonstration on how to make a

Colonel Burger and a wrap, and

then afforded the opportunity to

make their own.

According to KFC, each

restaurant is audited four times a

year by an independent auditor for

adherence to strict health and safety

standards.

“These are only a few of the

important unique processes shared

in the Colonel’s Kitchen and the

reason why KFC continues to serve

its customers good quality, freshlyprepared

chicken,” Modiselle said.

Innovative dishes on

offer at Pot O’ Curr y

GO REPORTER

Growing up in a well-known

family-run Indian takeaway

business that was situated in

Vincent proved to be a deciding

factor in Tubs Lingham’s

decision to follow in his family’s

footsteps.

As a young boy, Lingham

wanted to revolutionise what his

family were doing but could not

do so because of he was still a

child. His passion for cooking

burned bright over the years and

in 2012 he was the winner of

the Hemingways Potjiekos

Competition.

Having always been one to

experiment with food, he made

a samoosa filling with

cinnamon, banana, sugar and

chocolate sauce.

His next attempt was with a

pizzamoosa, which his family

agreed tasted like a real pizza.

It was at this time that the

idea of a gourmet samoosa

range came to Lingham and the

range has now grown to exceed

240 flavours including the

Candy Corner (chocolate,

nutella and marshmallow),

dagwood, cheeseburger, rump

steak melt, drie-hoekie-cookie

Demand among family and

friends saw the establishment of

Pot O’Curry Catering Business

and Gourmet Frozen Meals.

It was at this point that Vani

Lingham – Lingham’s mother,

chef extraordinaire and founder

of the long-established Pot

O’Curry spice kits – wa s

brought on board to assist with

the growth of the business.

“Our samoosas have

universal flavours and all our

meals appeal to busy families

but also to single persons,”

Lingham said.

When his mother fell ill in

November 2017, he sadly had

to close doors.

After she

passed away

on February

27 2018 and

after a year of

grieving,

Lingham

decided to

restart the

legacy his

mother had

left behind.

The business offers a calland-collect

service and

customers can expect a wait of

about 10 minutes, depending

on how busy the shop is.

The store has had almost

10,000 orders since it officially

opened its doors on October 1.

The GO! was fortunate

enough to taste some of the

wonderful, imaginative fare.

From malva pudding to

cream cheese and jalepeno and

ending off with sweet chilli,

cheese and biltong – the

flavours take one on a sensory

In giving back to the

community, a portion of frozen

meals go to Helping Those In

Need (HTIN), a non-profit

organisation run by Matthew

and Marion Peake. Customers

can also pledge a donation to

HTIN at the store and donors

will receive a SUPERSPAR Glass

Rewards Card, valued at R1,500

– a total value of more than

R150,000 are available.

Lingham also recently

assisted HTIN to secure a

donation through Picnic Candy

for their Christmas party packs

for children.

The store is open from 10am

to 8pm, Monday to Sunday,

except on Christmas and New

All must act to end GBV scourge in SA

MEGAN BURSEY

Gender-based violence has

reached is alarmingly high in

SA.

In 2017 alone, 39,633 rapes

and 6,253 sexual assaults were

reported.

The number of cases that

go by unreported may be much

h i g h e r.

When it comes to

understanding gender-based

violence (GBV), it is important

to know what the term means.

Simply, it is violence that is

directed at an individual based

on their biological sex or gender

identity. GBV includes physical,

sexual, emotional, verbal or

psychological abuse.

It can also include threats,

coercion and economic or

educational deprivation.

GBV is a global issue and

Culture of violence and of male superiority must be dismantled

women are disproportionally

harmed by it.

Furthermore, GBV can

impact anyone, regardless of

race, religion, education,

location or socio-economic

b a ck g r o u n d .

The systemic gender

inequality that we face

worldwide disempowers

women, girls and other

minorities.

Their voices are stifled, their

stories are not heard, and the

cycle of violence continues.

Protests erupted in

September after the brutal rape

and murder of 1 9 - ye a r- o l d

student Uyinene Mrwetyana,

and women across the nation

called for greater protection

against sexual assault.

The statistics are terrifying.

SA currently stands in the

fourth-worst position globally

when it comes to the murder

rate of women and girls, which

in 2017.18 was 12.5 per

100,000.

In 2016, the interpersonal

violence death rate for females

in SA was 4.8 times the global

average rate of 2.6.

From 2014 to 2017, 41% of

rapes committed were against

ch i l d r e n .

From April 2017 to March

2018, this number rose to

45.8%.

So what is being done about

it? There are organisations and

sectors across SA working to

end GBV.

For example, UN Women

promotes an equality through

education model that focuses

on promoting relationships

between young girls and

boys based on respect.

President Cyril Ramaphosa

has admitted there is a national

crisis of violence against women

and has proposed to make a

public register of offenders.

He also promised 11 new

courts, a review on cold cases

and harsher penalties for

p e r p e t ra t o r s .

There is a national plan to

curb GBV, which is to be

implemented in school

programmes, workplace

policies and community

i n i t i a t ive s .

When it comes to

combatting GBV, one of the

most important things South

Africans need to do is listen.

We all need to listen to the

girls and women of SA, we need

to value their voices and uplift

them. We need to focus on

providing equality in our homes

and treating our children the

same regardless of their g e n d e r.

We need to teach women

about their rights, so that they

can advocate for themselves.

Men need to be taught about

wo m e n ’s rights, in addition to

their responsibility of defending

those rights.

Men need to be engaged in

the fight against GBV and must

call out problematic behaviour

from other men and stand up for

e q u a l i t y.

We need to erase the culture

of violence in SA and the belief

of male superiority needs to be

dismantled.

This belief manifests in the

strict reinforcement of gender

roles, and it maintains the very

harmful patriarchy that prevents

true equality.

Addressing GBV is a

complex issue, and it requires a

multi-faceted approach from all

stakeholders in society.

Safer Spaces offers useful

approaches to addressing GBV

in SA. What we need is action.

We don’t need empty

promises from the government.

We need men to stand up

and treat women with respect.

We need to feel safe in our

homes and on our streets.

A good friend for the kitchen

Basil is the perfect partner to

help us in our busy lifestyles

ANASTACIA SAMPSON

Basil is a delightful, gentle plant

that offers various health

benefits.

It enjoys warm and dry

environments with ample

sunshine.

This truly is a summer-loving

plant that happens to have some

value as an insect repellent.

Historically, this plant is

thought to have come from the

regions of India.

Basil has been part of

ancient remedies in many

countries.

In modern times, science has

shown how different species of

basil vary in constituents and

exert varying therapeutic effects.

Some common types

include sweet, lemon, Thai,

holy and African blue basil.

Holy basil is highly regarded

in the Indian religion,

while Italians have long

associated basil with love.

Traditional medicine has

often associated basil with

being a remedy for colds, flus,

pains and reducing fevers.

Through scientific research,

it is proven that this herb does

indeed have anti-bacterial and

anti-fungal applications.

If you experience weak

digestion, colic-like pains or

flatulence, try some basil tea or

top up your meals with fresh

basil leaves.

Basil essential oil is said to

help in cases of anxiousness,

depression, lung weakness and

even acne.

Linalool is an essential oil in

basil that helps give the fresh

leaves their aromatic scent.

HOLY LEAF: Basil has historically been known for it’s medicinal properties. Picture: FILE

Interestingly, inhaling the

scent of Basil may stimulate

release of neurotransmitters to

elevate your mood!

One myth says sniffing fresh

Basil may relive headaches.

In culinary use, basil is often

a great partner to tomato-based

dishes and of course basil is the

star in pesto spreads.

Always add basil towards the

end of cooking, as its delicate

leaves do not really need

cooking.

Of course most of us tend to

use dried basil, however the

fresh leaves are just so much

b e t t e r.

Stress brings about

indigestion, headaches and

insomnia so this may be the

time when incorporating basil

into your diet is especially

beneficial.

It also relaxes your body

while boosting your immune

system.

So basil truly is a supportive

home member!

The myths and facts on

Black Friday’s origins

MATTHEW FIELD

If last week’s fantastic

advertising wrap didn’t give you

a clue, Black Friday is upon us

with all the sales, price cuts and

insatiable consumerism that

comes with it.

Much like “Bloody Sunday”,

there are a number of different

“Black Fridays” out there, all

referring to different things.

For example, September 24

1869 was one of the most

prominent Black Fridays and

marked the near-crashing of the

US economy by investors Jay

Gould and James Fisk, who

were able to corner the gold

market on the New York Gold

E x ch a n g e .

Since the US was still on the

gold standard at the time, their

actions had devastating

consequences.

Nowadays, however, Black

Friday is most known as the day

after the US Thanksgiving

holiday when retailers drop

their prices enormously, leading

to a buying frenzy that often

outshines even the Christmas

season. As a “h o l i d ay ” (albeit an

unofficial one), Black Friday is

probably the newest one in SA,

being only a few years old.

Like many of our holidays

are not based on historical

events – Valentines and

Mothers/Fathers Day and so on

– it’s actually borrowed from the

US and its history is rather

interesting.

I say that because there is

actually no established history

out there.

All that exists is a bunch of

legends and heresay, although

SHOPPING

SPREE:

Black

Friday’s

history is not

as clear-cut

as some

people may

think.

P i c t u re :

SUPPLIED

some do seem more likely than

others.

For today, we’ll look at three

of the most popular ones.

The first is probably the

darkest of the lot.

The legend goes that Black

Friday got its name from 1800s

US when plantation owners

could buy slaves for drastically

reduced prices on the day after

Th a n k s g iv i n g .

Putting aside the rich

metaphorical potential in this

rumour, there are absolutely no

facts to back it up so we can

safely put it aside as just one

more bit of untrue popular

h i s t o r y.

The second story is often

pushed by retailers.

According to this version,

Black Friday started out as a

kind of accounting joke.

After a year of running at a

loss (“in the red”), the post-

Thanksgiving sales gave

businesses a sudden surge in

profit (“in the black”).

While this is certainly a

more likely origin than the first,

it is equally lacking on a factual

basis.

It makes for a nice marketing

one-liner but that’s probably all

it is.

The final story does actually

have basis in fact and is widely

considered to be the most true.

The term “Black Friday” wa s

first used in its modern context

by Philadelphia police in the

1950s to describe the day after

Th a n k s g iv i n g .

On this day, hordes of

shoppers and tourists wo u l d

descend on the city for the

annual Army vs Navy football

game.

Needless to say, this placed

incredible strain on the police

force every year, hence the term.

The problem was so bad that

in 1961, a number of Philly

businesses tried to

unsuccessfully re-brand the day

as “Big Friday” but that never

s t u ck .

However, the term “B l a ck

Fr i d ay ” didn’t catch on

nationally until nearly 30 years

after its inception.

In the late 1980s, businesses

finally succeeded in flipping

Black Friday’s reputation,

turning it from a derogatory

term for one city’s logistical

nightmare to a special day

dedicated to shopping till you

drop.

The rest, as they say, is

h i s t o r y.

SA needs a

cultural shift

to end GBV

Policing alone won’t solve the

problem, DA’s Stevenson says

MATTHEW FIELD

SA is a “sick society caught in

moral decline”.

This was said by DA shadow

MEC for safety and security,

Bobby Stevenson, in response to

the high rate of gender-based

violence (GBV) in the country.

“We need to acknowledge it

will take more than speeches

from politicians and community

leaders to fix the broken and

dysfunctional society which we

live in,” Stevenson said.

“Patriarchy and toxic

masculinity alone cannot be

blamed for the situation.

“They are symptomatic of

the collapse of our institutions

and moral values in our society.”

In 2018/19, there were

29,343 reported crimes against

women and children in the

Eastern Cape, representing an

increase of 701 from 2017/18.

In the same period, there

were 3,070 reported sexual

offences reported in relation to

children under the age of 17

years, 2,695 rapes and 375

sexual assaults.

Children under the age of six

made up 6.4% of all sexual

offences reported in the

province, children between the

ages of seven and 13 made up

16% and children between 14

and 20 made up 25.5%.

Stevenson called for the

restoration of trust in the

country’s criminal justice

system, while also ensuring that

the police were provided with

proper training and equipment

needed to tackle sexual crimes.

“The truth is that the

violence cannot be solved

through policing alone.

“There needs to be a massive

cultural shift in SA,” he said.

“Education programmes are

desperately needed at schools

that speak to the rights of

individuals, the inherent and

irreplaceable value that each

person has and instil a culture of

respect for one another.”

Vincent SUPERSPAR 20 years of excellence

GO REPORTER

Vincent SUPERSPAR

marked 20 years of being

in business on May 23 this

year. Since then, the store

has grown tremendously.

Originally opening its

doors as a SPAR, the store

later converted to a

SUPERSPAR with greater

product range and

increased floorspace.

Proudly family-run business continuous to grow with st a n d a rd s

Family-owned and

family-run by the

McGlashans, the owners

believe the store’s success

has been achieved through

hard work and a culture

based on high standards.

The direct involvement of

the family enables the store

to maintain these

standards.

The family are

particularly proud of being

selected as one of the

Service Excellence Top 20

SPAR stores in SA for the

last few years. In addition

to this, the store was

awarded Top 15 Service

Excellence awards a

further five times from

2003 to 2009, as well as

being voted Store of the

Year in 2002 and 2008.

These awards are the

culmination of multiple

evaluations by the SPAR

Group’s head office

regarding store standards

and customer service, as

well as regular

independent hygiene

inspections.

A number of new

concepts were introduced,

including the Chef’s Table,

Design-a-Salad and the

Gourmet Sandwich.

The store also boasts a

mouth-watering array of

artisan breads and other

delights.

Congratulations to

Vincent, Nahoon and

Southerwood Spars

on your achievements.

Your support is

appreciated

In 2016, the family

business grew with the

acquisition of

S o u t h e r n wo o d

SUPERSPAR & TOPS.

The store had a

complete face-lift and their

“Fire & Grill” concept

became an instant success.

So much so that it had to

be revamped and

enlarged.

The same

culture and

concepts that

customers

enjoyed at the

Vincent store

were also

applied at the

S o u t h e r n wo o d

stores.

In July 2019,

the family got

even bigger with

Nahoon

SUPERSPAR &

TOPS joining the

fold.

The family

are proud to

welcome this

popular store

into the group.

Nahoon

customers can be

assured that they

will enjoy the same

commitment to customer

service, hygiene and

standards that the other

stores are known for. Some

of the new concepts have

already been introduced to

the store and the Friday

Gourmet Burger day is a

big hit.

The family have always

had a heart for the

community and gives back

in a number of ways,

including supporting

numerous soup kitchens

and schools, the homeless

and various charities.

The main focus is on

feeding the hungry. On

Mondays, senior citizens

enjoy a free cup of tea or

coffee at Vincent and

Southernwood, as well as a

special discount at the tills.

Nahoon’s pensioners

get a special discount on

M o n d ay s and

We d n e s d ay s .

The popular charity

boxes are also still going at

the Nahoon store, so don’t

forget to pop your till slip

into your favourite charity

box.

The McGlashan and

Lake families invite you to

visit the stores and get a

“taste” of what they’re

about.

president Mark Alexander and SARU representative in Border

Rugby Monde Tabata. P i c t u re : S U P P L I E D

Dsrac to help

revive Border

Rugby

‘We must nurture young talent’

SIVENATHI GOSA

MEC of department of

sport recreation, arts

and culture

(Dsrac) Fezeka Bayeni

held a meeting

with South African

Rugby Union (SARU)

president Mark

Alexander, SARU

representative in Border

R u g by M o n d e

Tabata and Border

Rugby administrator

Basil Haddad last week.

The meeting was

requested by the MEC

in a bid to revive Border

Rugby and tackle the

challenges they face.

The meeting

received a report on the

state of Border Rugby in

terms of governance,

finances and SARU’s

future plans for Border

R u g by.

As part of her

address to the meeting,

B aye n i s a i d t h e

Springboks’ World Cup

victory inspired many

young people across the

RECORD BREAKER

country who now see

themselves as future

Springboks.

“As government, it

becomes imperative on

us [sic] to create an

environment where the

talent of these young

people is nurtured in

order to realise their

dreams of becoming the

Siya Kolisi’s, Lukhanyo

Am’s and Makazole

Mpimpi’s of the future.

“We must therefore

put in place measures

to create a nurturing

environment for the

development of rugby

in the province.” A

partnership between

SARU and the Eastern

Cape provincial

government was agreed

on to help in reviving

Border Rugby.

The partnership will

lead to

the development of a

two-year plan which

will include financial

injections by both

SARU and the

provincial government.

SARU further gave

a detailed report of the

financial injection of

R4,2 million to Border

Rugby from Dsrac in

April, which was

welcomed by the MEC.

Bayeni and

Alexander agreed to

directly champion the

campaign to revive

Border Rugby. Bayeni

will further embark on a

broad consultation of

all the stakeholders of

Border Rugby including

the sub-unions, rugby

clubs, rugby veterans,

local businesses and the

Buffalo City

Metropolitan

Municipality in an effort

to build a broad front to

help revive Border

R u g by.

The full plan will be

communicated once

these consultations

have been concluded

and all the relevant

stakeholders have

submitted their

contributions to the

plan.

Tuesday marked the two-year anniversary of Border batsman's

record-breaking match against Eastern Province. On November 26,

2017, Marais scored the fastest triple-century ever, scoring 300 runs

off of 191 balls. In doing so, he broke a record that had been

standing since 1921 when Australian batsman Charles Macartney

scored 300 off 221 balls against Nottinghamshire. Picture: SUPPLIED

continues to excell in

motocross.

Jayden started riding when

he was just four years old, with

his dad helping him to master

his corners and jumps.

“I started competing big

competitions when I was 12

years old,” Jayden said.

“My first was the North

versus South Motocross

Championships in Bloemfontein

where I came 10th.” His plan for

2020 is to participate in more

competitions, especially in

national events.

Jay d e n ’s talent has attracted

the attention of local

Master Gearbox Diff.

“We decided to sponsor

Jayden because we were

amazed by his talent.

“He’s got a good future when

Hudson Park ranked top BCM school cricket team

MATTHEW FIELD

SA School Sports Magazine

recently released its rankings of

school first-team cricket teams

from 2012 to 2019 in order to

chart how each school has

faired since the rankings first

began. According to their

website, an average for each

school was obtained by taking

their final position in each

respective year, adding them

together and then dividing the

result by eight. Teams that

weren’t ranked in a particular

year, were given final place.

Sadly, no teams from Buffalo

City Metro (BCM) made the top

10 although two teams did at

least manage to crack the top

20. According to SA School

Sports’ rankings, Hudson Park

High School is the top BCM

team, coming in at 11th place

with an average annual ranking

of 18.5.

The next-best team from

BCM was Selborne College,

whose average ranking of 22.5

put them in 20th place overall.

Dale College came in at last

place overall at 37th, with an

average annual ranking of

44. Get full results at

in California

Daniel Emslie

takes on top

athletes from

all over world

AMANDA NANO

Merrifield College pupil Daniel

Emslie certainly made waves

after participating in the Vissla

International Surfing

Association World Junior

Surfing Championships at

Huntington Beach, in

California.

The 15-year-old competed in

the Under 16 boys division

against athletes from all over the

world, coming fifth in the

division and narrowly missing

out on a medal.

“It was a great experience to

see what the level is like with

top surfers,” Daniel said.

“The second round was

really tough with every heat

getting harder after that.

“I am super-happy about my

placing though I could have

gone through to the final,” he

said.

Proud father Justin Emslie

said the competition had turned

out to be better than they had

imagined and the support for

Daniel was “amazing”.

Justin added that his wife

Chantelle made sure Daniel

stayed on top of his school

work, while he juggled all his

extra-mural activities at school.

“Our sponsors have been

very supportive and Daniel has

also saved all his competition

winnings.

“We also did a community

fundraising initiative,” he said.

said.

“The reason for the

tournament to be held on the

first weekend of December is

because I want to raise

awareness for the 16 Days of

Activism Against Gender-Based

Violence, as well as alcohol and

drug abuse.”

Mbini said 10 netball teams,

10 soccer teams and 12 rugby

teams had shown interest.

The first team winners will

be awarded R1,000 and the

second team R500.

The first prize for U18 will

receive R1,000 and the second

R500.

“I have partnered with some

local businesses from Berlin

who will be assisting with lunch

packs for the players, and the

Berlin SAPS will be assisting

with some logistics too,” Mbini

said.
