NURDLES ARE BACK ON OUR BEACHES

The small plastic pellets (raw materials for plastic products) are extremely dangerous to our marine life, causing blockages, starvation, and death.

Please try pick up as many as you can – shadecloth / pool nets / sieves work well for separating them from the sand add them to a bucket of water and they will float on the top.

Dispose of them at the collection points Two Oceans Aquarium, Shark Spotters stations (Muizenberg, Fish Hoek, etc), and SANParks kiosks.

LOWER HOUSE PRICES IN WESTERN CAPE

Property in the Western Cape is regarded by many as among the most expensive in the country, and for first-home buyers, often completely out of reach.

However, the recent drop in regional house prices, as well as the favourable lending environment created by the lowest interest rate in decades, is helping first home buyers to at last gain a foothold in this competitive property market.

TOY COLLECTION DRIVE

In an attempt to brighten Christmas morning for those less privileged Fidelity ADT, in partnership with Harfield Village will be hosting a toy collection drive on Saturday 05th December in Hampstead Community Park in Princes Rd, Claremont.  Read more here.

DOES YOUR WARDROBE NEED RE-MODELING

Fine Feathers Sewing School offers just that and many other aspects in sewing.

Alterations, Re-Modeling your Retro or Vintage Clothing and/or Up-Cycle your Wardrobe are just some of the offerings.

To remodel your wardrobe: 1) Make an appointment; 2) bring a few items of clothing to Sharon; 3) discuss, and transform your wardrobe together.

The initial hour-long appointment will set you back only R150. Sharon will advise what is possible & suitable to transform your clothing. Sometimes small changes, or a minor adjustment, can make all the difference. After the initial consultation, Sharon charges R75 an hour.

Another of Sharon’s offerings is “Hems in a Hurry” from R75 for a simple hem increasing in price for the more complicated ones (due to cut or fabric). If you are able to sew yourself, Sharon can fit and cut the item for you to sew in your own time, in your own home.

Sharon offers private Sewing Lessons, to beginners and advanced, at a rate of R150 per hour. She is willing to adjust her plan to suit your requirements.
