Dear Subscriber
If you missed out on the latest newsletters you can see them here.
The last of the cold fronts and chilly weather will soon make way for Spring. The flowers have started blooming up the West Coast, if you do get a chance to take the drive up you will be in for a wonderful show.
In this month's newsletter we have many exciting articles and have highlighted some great events taking place in and around the village.
We also take a look at the latest properties sold and up for sale from our sponsors Norgarb Properties.
Please support the Animal Rescue Organisations charity shops! They are in desperate need of any unwanted goods that they can sell in their shops to raise funds for their mobile clinics. These donated goods can either be dropped off at Norgarb Properties or their driver can collect.

Recently the RCID - Rondebosch Community Improvement District communications hub released the details of an interview they had with a member of a crowbar gang!
This housebreaking suspect was responsible for more than 40 housebreakings.
Questions such as how long it takes to break into a house, how they find safes and how they choose their targets and more are all answered here.

Looking after your pets’ teeth is just as important as looking after your own, yet many pet owners neglect this essential part of their pets’ health.
This month Kenilworth Vet takes a look at dental health for your pets. Read their full article here.
This month STBB looks at disputes which relate to the landlord's rights regarding the return of a tenant's deposit on termination of a residential lease agreement.
Many such queries reach our offices of which most could have been avoided had the parties known the prescripts of the Rental Housing Act.
All of the requirements with regard to the withholding of a deposit as well as the ingoing- and outgoing inspections are to be advised in the note that follows. Here we provide a guideline with regard to the applicable laws.
Our bodies are made up of approximately 60% water, but our bodies lose water through the day making it imperative to rehydrate throughout the day. So drink water every day!
Water loss is through the urinary tract, faeces and skin as well as through breathing.
This amounts to about 2.3 litres per day in normal conditions. We replenish the water loss through drinking and eating says Kim Hoffman. Read the full article here.
This month the HVCID impart valuable information on how to AVOID A HIJACK SITUATION
Unfortunately we had an incident of attempted hijacking in the Village recently.
Luckily the resident was not harmed and the suspects were interrupted before they were able to steal the vehicle. Here are some basic security guidelines to follow to reduce your risk of being a victim of a hijacking incident. Read more here.
