Protest ‘political’ DALEEN FOUCHÉ


RAFFIC in the usually quiet town of Ashton was disrupted last Wednesday (May 29) when protesters from Zolani blocked the main road in front of the municipal building during a service delivery protest. A wave of service delivery protests has hit the Boland in recent weeks, including protests in Worcester, De Doorns, Bot River and Grabouw. Protesters arrived at the Ash-

ton municipal offices at 10:00 and left at 12:30 after handing over a list of grievances to the executive mayor, Alderman Diana Gagiano. The list includes a request for a high school, land for houses, a day hospital and job creation. Simo Mketso, general secretary of the South African National Civic Orginisation (SANCO), who led the protest, read out the complaints to the mayor and gave her 14 days to respond. Mketso said they urgently require a high school

and handed over a letter from the Western Cape Department of Education which states that the department is waiting for the Langeberg Municipality to identify land on which to build a school. Mr Soyisile Mokweni, municipal manager, said however that he has not received any communication from the department regarding a request for land. He thanked the community for bringing this matter to his attention. Mokweni told the Gazette last

week that he believes the protest was politically motivated. He said the protesters had their own agenda and were driven by “certain political parties”. He labelled the protest an effort to intimidate the mayor. He explained that the grievances do not fall within the municipality’s mandate, but are rather the mandate of the provincial government. Mokweni believes this protest will have a “domino effect” with more protests likely to follow in other towns in the mu-

nicipal area. “It is part of a strategy to make the municipality ungovernable.” Mketso denies allegations that the aim of the protest was to intimidate the mayor. He says that although the majority of protesters support the African National Congress (ANC), and would like to see the ANC in a position of power in the Western Cape, the protest was “to show the mayor that we are not happy with service delivery in the Langeberg region”.

Animal abuse rife in Langeberg DALEEN FOUCHÉ


IVE badly neglected and malnourished dogs were confiscated by the Winelands Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) within the space of only two weeks. This has sparked concern and a new strategy by the Winelands SPCA. A small dog was recently fished out of a river by members of the community and brought to the SPCA. Ms Lesley Beviss-Challinor, investigator for the SPCA, says although there is no proof, she suspects that the dog was thrown into the river because of its neglected condition. The rescuers of the dog have adopted him and named him Lucky. “He has made a full recovery, but his coat still needs to grow back.” Another dog was rescued with the help of the community after residents informed the SPCA of a neglected dog in their neighbourhood in Robertson. The female dog found by the SPCA had a seri-

ous skin condition which had been left untreated. The dog was confiscated and the owners were given a warning letter. The whistle-blowers adopted the dog and named her Hope. Beviss-Challinor says it will take a long time for Hope to recover from her skin disease. Two more dogs were confiscated by the SPCA, but were too badly neglected and had to be euthanased. Beviss-Challinor says the owners of these dogs were given a warning by the SPCA and “will be monitored”. She says that if these previous owners are found in possession of an animal, the SPCA will approach the magistrate for a court order to prohibit them from owning an animal. A fifth dog was confiscated last week. Beviss-Challinor says Simba had been starved and neglected and adds that the owner is to be prosecuted. “Despite Simba’s history, he is a gentle, sweet dog

and needs a loving new home for the rest of his life.” Currently two people are doing community work as punishment after being found guilty of cruelty to animals. Beviss-Challinor says one of them is currently doing 100 hours of community work over weekends at the Worcester SPCA. “I think they are learning their lesson.” Beviss-Challinor says these incidents are cause for concern. The SPCA embarks on a new strategy this week to help more animals with the help of volunteers. Previously the SPCA would patrol areas, especially townships, with a car. But starting this week, volunteers will go from house to house to inspect animals and enquire about abused animals. BevissChallinor reminds people that animal abuse is against the law and that transgressors will be prosecuted.

Langeberg se klinieke, hospitaal kry nuwe gesig DALEEN FOUCHÉ

DIE Robertson-hospitaal gaan oor die volgende paar jaar opgegradeer word om meer pasiënte te akkommodeer en meer pasiëntgeoriënteerd te wees. Twee klinieke in die Langeberg-area is reeds opgegradeer met geld wat die departement van openbare werke aan die Langebergstreek vir dié doel gegee het. Dr. Luise Lunnon, bestuurder van mediese dienste in die Langeberg-subdistrik, sê die departement het Langeberg se mediese dienste geïdentifiseer vir opgradering. Die kliniek in Nkqubela is reeds opgegradeer teen ’n koste van R157 000 en vier nuwe vertrekke is tot die kliniek bygevoeg. Voorheen het dié besige kliniek slegs een konsultasievertrek gehad. Vandag spog die kliniek met ’n TBtoetskamer, ’n beradingskamer en twee konsultasiekamers. Die McGregor-kliniek is opgegradeer teen net minder as R1 miljoen. Dié

pragtige kliniek spog nou met nuwe stoele in die wagkamer, ’n nuwe laag verf, lugversorging in die medisynekamer en opgeknapte houtbalke. Lunnon sê altwee klinieke lyk nou baie beter en het ’n groter kapasiteit om pasiënte gemaklik te behandel. Bonnievale en Bergsig se klinieke is volgende op die lys vir opgraderings wat in die volgende drie tot vier maande aangepak sal word. Lunnon sê sy het besluit om eerder een kliniek volledig te laat opgradeer in plaas daarvan om stuk-stuk aan al die klinieke in die Langeberg te laat werk. Groot opgraderings word vir die Robertson-hospitaal in die vooruitsig gestel wat oor die volgende drie jaar geïmplementeer gaan word. Lunnon sê die hospitaal gaan van ’n 46- na ’n 80-bedhospitaal opgegradeer word. Tydens fase een, wat vanjaar afskop, gaan ekstra stoorfasiliteite en ’n nuwe ambulansstasie op die hospitaalperseel teen ’n beraamde R5,4 miljoen opgerig

word. Lunnon sê dat stoorkamers uiters belangrik is vir hospitale om mediese voorraad en toerusting te stoor wat nie maklik en vinnig bekombaar is nie. Verder verduidelik sy dat daar tans slegs parkeerplek vir ambulanse op die terrein is. Sy sê Robertson- ambulanse word van Worcester se ambulansstasie uitgeroep. Die tweede fase van die Robertsonhospitaal se opgradering, wat in die 2013-2014 finansiële jaar sal geskied, sluit ’n nuwe kraamsaal en teaterkompleks met twee volledige teaters met die nuutste tegnologie in. Lunnon sê die opgradering skep ook nuwe werksgeleenthede vir mense in die mediese bedryf. Die derde en laaste fase behels die opgradering van die noodgevallekamer, nuwe apteek, administrasiekantore en ’n nuwe aanmeldpunt vir pasiënte. Lunnon sê sy is baie opgewonde oor die opgradering omdat die hospitaal in die toekoms meer pasiëntgeoriënteerd sal wees.

Simba was found malnourished.

Lucky has found a new, loving home.

The new face of medicine DALEEN FOUCHÉ


HE new manager of medical services in the Department of Health’s Langeberg subdistrict is a “passionate” and highly experienced doctor who has already started to make improvements in the area. Dr Luise Lunnon took up her new post last year in June and has since been responsible for the Robertson and Montagu hospitals, and the seven clinics and five mobile clinics in the area. Lunnon obtained her medical degree at the University of Stellenbosch and started her professional career at the Worcester Hospital. At the time, she was the only female doctor there. After nine years she accepted a post at the Cape Winelands District Municipality and later the provincial Department of Health as the director of health for the district. During this time she established 34 clinics within the district municipality, including the Bergsig, Bonnievale and Mon-

tagu clinics. Since Lunnon’s arrival in Robertson, she has established and filled three new doctors’ posts and introduced a new specialist to the area. She has also introduced two new mobile clinics. Lunnon says a big challenge of her new post is to amalgamate the Robertson and Montagu hospitals into a single unit with two facilities. She says space within medical facilities is another big challenge in the Langeberg municipal area and welcomes the new renovations planned for the Robertson Hospital. Lunnon says her goal is to re-establish an operational hospital board for the Robertson Hospital, which last had one in 2008. She says that the hospital has approached people for the positions, but has not yet been able to establish a board. Lunnon says it is empirical that a hospital has a board consisting of members of the community in order for the community to have input into their medical structures. “A board keeps the hospital accountable and patient orientated.”

These are combined with light meals and, of course, a fun get-together with other ladies. Currently, Vino Donnas has 25 members from Robertson and the surrounding towns. Membership is R300 a year which includes six tastings. Guests pay R60 per visit.

Phone 0 082 925 1183 or send email to

Lunnon, who lives with her husband on a farm between Robertson and Worcester, says that since she took up het new post, she has received a “warm welcome” from the community. She says she loves the shops in Robertson and no longer goes to Worcester to do her shopping. “I have only had positive experiences with the staff and patients.” Lunnon says that since she started, there have been very few complaints from patients. She says the hospital, however, has received several complaints regarding bills. Lunnon explains that the Robertson Hospital is transferring to a new accounts system, which has caused various mistakes to slip in, but assures the community that the hospital is paying attention to this problem. Lunnon says all clinics and the hospitals have a box for complaints and compliments, and she welcomes both. Lunnon says her goal is to make all medical facilities in the Langeberg area patient orientated and friendly.

Oudvalleier laat hom nie onderkry EBEN VAN ECK, ’n oud-Robertsonner, is 68 jaar oud en ken die betekenis van deursettingsvermoë. In 2011 het komplikasies met sy gesondheid ingetree en in die proses moes Van Eck se linkerbeen bo die knie geamputeer word. Vir baie sou dit op hierdie ouderdom die begin van die einde beteken, maar nie vir hierdie “kannie-dood” nie. Hy is bekend by Robertson Kelder waar hy heelwat jare gewerk het. Hy het daagliks in wind en weer met sy bromponie werk toe en terug gery om sy taak te verrig. Nie alleen het hy werk toe gery nie, maar baie keer vir vriende op Bonnievale met sy bromponie gaan kuier. Tydens een van hierdie besoeke was hy betrokke in ’n ongeluk waar hy oorspronklik sy been Eben van Eck met sy handewerk. beseer het. Dit was dus een van die eerste bekommernisse houtkerfwerk. Hy het egter meer as net kerfwerk dat Van Eck sy onafhanklikheid sou verloor met gedoen en begin om kapkarre, ossewaens en kakedie verlies van sy been. Hy was egter vasbeslote beenwaens uit geelhout, Oregon-dennehout en anom nie sy onafhanklikheid op te gee nie en met der afvalmateriaal te maak. Sy nuutste skepping is die African Queen-seildie hulp van vriende het hy sy bromponie aangeskip wat hy op skaal sonder enige spesiale gereedpas sodat hy onafhanklik kan rondbeweeg. Van Eck kom uit ’n familie wat bekend is vir skap gebou het.

Geniet ’n oggend se teetuinplesier DIE winter is hier, maar inwoners kan steeds by die Robertson Museum ontspan, ontbyt nuttig of sommer net rustig saam met vriende of familie verkeer by die maandelikse teetuin wat weer op 2 Junie by die anneks aangebied word. Benewens die ontbyt, is daar ook vars pannekoek, soetgebak of soutterte wat saam met ’n koppie filterkoffie of tee geniet kan

word. Daar is altyd iets interessant op die museumtafel benewens die tuisgemaakte produkte wat te koop aangebied word. Die mark begin om 09:00 en duur tot 12:00. Mense wat daarin belangstel om hul handwerk of tuisgebak by die oggendmark aan te bied, kan mev. Liesbeth Curtis bel by 0 023 626 6622 of die museum by 023 626 3681.

Eerste indaba vir klein besighede DALEEN FOUCHÉ


IE eerste indaba vir klein ondernemings op Robertson is op Maandag 21 Mei in die munisipale saal op dié dorp gehou. Die indaba is deur Winile en Andiswa Mabhoko, direkteure van Andiswa Mabhoko Trading CC, aangebied. Mabhoko sê hulle doel is om mense van voorheen benadeelde gemeenskappe te help om klein ondernemings op die been te kry. Die indaba het ’n platform vir eienaars van huidige en toekomstige klein besighede geskep om sodoende kennis te maak met die verskeie hulpbronne wat tot hul beskikking is. Verteenwoordigers van die departement van handel en nywerheid was by die indaba teenwoordig, sowel as banke, wat hul pakkette aan eienaars van klein besighede bekend gestel het. Mabhoko sê hulle bied die afgelope twee jaar werkswinkels aan in samewerking met die Langeberg Munisipaliteit, maar sê dit is die eerste indaba wat gehou is. Die indaba was volgens Mabhoko “’n groot sukses” omdat die saal volgepak was met onder andere die 107 huidige en toekomstige entrepreneurs en ander gaste. Me. Anna Nasri van Ashton het tydens die indaba aan die Breederivier Gazette vertel van die sukses wat sy as entrepreneur behaal het. Sy het in 2005 ’n informele wassery op Ashton begin. In 2010 het sy haar wassery geregistreer en met drie wasmasjiene begin. Vandag het sy twee sakevennote en doen hulle flink sake. “Ek is baie trots op wat ek bereik het,” sê sy. Volgens haar het Andiswa Mabhoko Trading CC haar gehelp om geld te bekom asook die tegniese besonderhede vir die onderneming. Nasri spog dat sy sukses bereik het omdat sy goed is in wat sy doen. “Ek doen al die strykwerk self.” Sy beplan om vanjaar haar besigheid uit te brei en mense voltyds aan te stel.

Titanic-fassinasie O

Begin iets BYNA ’n kwart van alle Suid-Afrikaners wat kan en wil werk, het nie werk nie. Dit is op sigself ’n skrikwekkende syfer, maar voeg dit by die hoeveelheid werkende mense wat steeds ’n bittere stryd voer om aan die lewe te bly, en die armoede-prentjie in die land raak duiselingwekkend. Boonop het die ekonomie sedert 2008 ’n groot knou gekry en dit is algemeen bekend dat liefdadigheidsorganisasies toenemend begin sukkel het om geld in die hande te kry. Mense wat van ander se goedheid en geld afhanklik is, het dus toegeneem terwyl die geldpoel om hulle te ondersteun kleiner geraak het. ’n Indaba wat verlede week op Robertson gehou is om entrepreneurs leiding te gee in die begin van hul eie klein onderneming, is dus ’n sprankie hoop in ’n andersins donker situasie. En hoewel klein, is enige poging om selfs net ’n handjievol mense die nodige toerusting te gee om meer afhanklikheid te bekom, ’n uitstekende inisiatief. Ongelukkig is ’n eie onderneming ’n moeilike en lang pad wat deurlopende goeie gehalte en diens en ’n reuse dosis deursettingsvermoë vereis. En natuurlik is die sukses daarvan afhanklik van die ondersteuning wat die onderneming geniet. Om plaaslike ondernemings te ondersteun, is dus ’n manier om waarlik ons mede-inwoners op die langtermyn te help.

P 12 April vanjaar was dit presies 100 jaar dat die passasierskip die Titanic in die NoordAtlantiese Oseaan teen ’n ysberg gebots en gesink het. Meer as 1 500 mense het in daardie ramp gesterf. Dit bly die grootste seetragedie in die geskiedenis en die mensdom het byna ’n obsessie daarmee ontwikkel. Ek onthou duidelik toe daar in 1986 aangekondig is dat die Franse ontdekkingsreisiger dr. Robert D. Ballard die wrak van die Titanic ontdek het – ’n ongelooflike tegnologiese prestasie. Die ontdekking was wêreldnuus en ek, geskiedenis-freak wat ek is, het alle koerant- en tydskrifartikels gebêre. Ek het ook steeds die heel eerste artikel wat ek uit die tydskrif National Geographic gehou het, asook die een in 1968, die een in 2004 en onlangs die nuutse uitgawe met die herdenkingsuitgawe daarvan. Toe die rolprentmaker James Cameron in die 1990’s sy rolprent oor die ramp vrystel, het dit weer eens ’n stortvloed van artikels in die koerante, tydskrifte en nou ook op die internet tot gevolg gehad. Toe die Titanic in April 1912 sy tuishawe verlaat op sy nooiensvaart na New York, was dit die grootste, die beste en die weelderigste skip in die geskiedenis. Daar is beweer dat die skip onsinkbaar was – trouens, een van die eienaars of aandeelhouers

het destyds beweer dat selfs die Hemelse Vader nie die skip sou kon sink nie. Wel, hy is verkeerd bewys en meer as 1 500 mense het met hul lewens geboet. Deur die jare heen is talle redes vir die ramp ondersoek – samesweringsteorieë, flaters deur die kaptein en sy personeel, die feit dat daar te min reddingsbote was – noem ’n rede en dit is ondersoek. Daar is selfs beweer dat mense visioene of voorbodes gehad het van die skip wat sink. Die rede vir die ramp is later met behulp van moderne tegnologie bewys en dit was, na alles, ’n menslike fout. Swak staal wat gebruik is vir die klinknaels van die skip se waterdigte kompartemente, het met die botsing gebreek en die kompartemente is oorstroom. So, hoekom bly die ramp steeds mense se verbeelding aangryp? Is dit die “romantiek” van die skip of die tragedie van die lewens wat dit geëis het? Dit bly ’n enigma vir my. Dit was egter interessant om te lees dat die Titanic se susterskip, wat as die Gigantic bekend sou staan, se naam ná die ramp verander is. )) Anita de Kock is ’n lid van die Breederivier Skrywersburo.

Liefdadigheidsorganisasies baat op groot skaal by skenking TENMINSTE 20 welsynsorganisasies en voedingskemas in die Langeberg-area het verlede week gebaat by die skenking van tien ton groente deur Greyton Frozen Foods. Greyton Frozen Foods is al die afgelope vier jaar betrokke by die honger- en armoedeverligtingspoging van die Centre of Hope van Montagu. Hulle skenk gemiddeld 30 ton groente per jaar. Volgens Alida Cilliers, bemarker van die Centre of Hope, word dié groot skenking moontlik gemaak deur vervoer wat verskaf word deur plaaslike boere, onder andere mnr. Ernst Botha van Kruispad en mnr. Ben Kriel van Silver Oaks. Cilliers sê hulle is ook opreg dankbaar teenoor mnr. Pieter Lotter van Armada Pakstoor en mnr. Kobus

van Antwerpen van Robertson Vrugteverpakkers wat die kratte verskaf en hul persele beskikbaar stel vir die aflaai van die groente. Die Centre of Hope-armoedeverligtingsprogram het ook 20 ton mieliemeel van verskeie boere in die Bothaville-distrik in die Vrystaat ontvang. Die vervoer van dié skenking is ook gratis verskaf deur ’n vervoermaatskappy van Kaapstad. Cilliers sê sy verwag binnekort nog ’n skenking van ’n hele paar ton mieliemeel vanuit Delmas in Mpumalanga. Sy sê die Centre of Hope is betrokke by voedselverskaffing aan 1 700 kinders, 250 senior burgers en omtrent 250 huisgesinne uit die armste van die arm huishoudings in die Langeberg-area en Worcester. Die hulpprogram is ook betrokke

by sewe voedingskemas waarvan een geborg word deur die Shoprite- mobiele sopkombuis op Ashton, wat daagliks sop aan 400 mense verskaf. Die Centre of Hope het die afgelope twee jaar onder meer ’n erg verwaarloosde gebou in ’n netjiese akkommodasie- en konferensiesentrum omskep waar verskeie vroue ontluik het in kranige entrepreneurs wat onder mentorskap hul eie ondernemings gevestig het. Daar is reeds ’n gevestigde spysenier, naaldwerksentrum, skoonheidsalon, gimnasium, naskoolsentrum met gekwalifiseerde onderwysers, ’n biblioteek en rekenaarlokaal. Kinders ontvang ekstra wiskunde- en taalgeletterdheidsklasse en hulp met skooltake, inligtingsherwinning en studeerwerk. Volgens Cilliers is die sukses van die Centre of Hope te danke aan hul geloofsbasis en totale afhanklikheid van die Here. “Ons word ondersteun deur 24 uur-gebede en die samewerking en hulp, donasies en gebede wat ons so mildelik ontvang van verskeie gemeenskappe en boere in die Langeberg en vanuit verskeie provinsies in die land.” Inwoners word genooi om die Centre of Hope in Sultanasingel, Montagu (net na Montagu Droeëvrugte) te besoek.

Agt dekades oud: Die orrel van die NG Moedergemeente op Robertson se 80ste bestaansjaar in die gemeente word vanjaar gevier. Die orrel, ‘n Rushworth en Dreaper-model, is op 20 Mei 1932 ingewy en die totale koste daarvan was destyds £2 682. Deel van die herdenking wat deur die kerk gevier is, was ’n spesiale orreluitvoering verlede Saterdagoggend by die kerk. Mario Nell, ‘n dosent in orrel by die Universiteit van Stellenbosch, was die orrelis. Die kerk het tans twee orreliste – Susara Stemmet en Dave Reed. Die traporrel (onder) staan in ‘n sykamer van die kerk wat soms gebruik word. Die orrel word dan deur Dave Reed bespeel. Foto’s: Anita de Kock

Bookworms gather to support the donkeys T

HE Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary held its sixth annual Book Fair and fund-raiser in McGregor this weekend and announced on Monday that it had been a big success. The fair serves as the sanctuary’s only fund-raiser for the year. Held in the community hall in McGregor, it kicked off on Friday and concluded on Sunday. The hall was jam-packed with books on every imaginable topic, ranging from favourite fiction novels to recipe and hobby books. A special table with collectors’ books attracted many people who took part in a silent auction for rare books. Inside the hall, a quiet murmur could be heard as people walked around with their eyes on the tables and their noses in books. The sanctuary announced on its Facebook page that this year’s sales were better than the previous year. The book fair also attracted over 125 people to the Eseltjiesrus Donkey Sanctuary over the weekend.

)) Die Ashton-polisie ondervind tans ’n kwaai styging in eiendomsverwante sake soos huisbrake en diefstalle. Inwoners word vriendelik versoek om hul eiendomme te beskerm deur diefwering en veiligheidshekke by hul eiendomme aan te bring. Inwoners word ook versoek om die polisie in kennis te stel wanneer hulle nie tuis gaan wees nie sodat gereelde patrollies in dié spesifieke areas geloods kan word. “Moenie voertuie snags op sypaadjies of op die ryvlak van die pad laat nie. Kwaaddoeners beweeg rond en neem hul kans waar wanneer die publiek nie daarvan bewus is nie,”waarsku die polisie. Gesteelde eiendom word vinnig van die hand gesit en die polisie vra die gemeenskap se hulp in die bekamping van misdaad. )) Die polisie op Ashton is bekommerd oor motoriste wat veral gedurende naweke jaagtogte hou. Die polisie sê dit hou ’n groot gevaar vir die gemeenskap in, omdat nie voetgangers, diere, ander motors en ongelukke soos ’n band wat bars, in ag geneem word nie. Die polisie sê oortreders word gewaarsku dat daar streng teen hulle opgetree gaan word. )) ’n Vriendelike beroep word gedoen op eienaars wat tweedehandse goedere verkoop en plaaseienaars om ’n dringende vergadering op 30 Mei by die Ashton-polisiekantoor by te woon. Wetgewing rondom die verkoop van skrootmetaal in die toekoms sal ook bespreek word. Daar sal ook ’n vergadering op Donderdag 14 Junie om 18:00 in die Zolanigemeenskapsaal gehou word, een vir die Kogmanskloofarea op Donderdag 28 Junie om 18:00 by die Barnardsaal en een vir die landelike gebied op Woensdag 27 Junie om 18:00 in die Excelsiorsaal. )) Die polisie op Robertson is in besit van ’n gesteelde CD-speler (vir ’n motor) wat op 6 Februarie in die omgewing van Dagbreekstraat gevind is. Die polisie is op soek na die eienaar.


’n Bewys van eiendom word verlang. Bel ao. Clive Stemmet by 0 023 626 8340 of 072 269 6113. )) The Robertson police are looking for Zana Xolo Jack Nabhekade (39) from Hermanus. He can possibly help the police with the investigation of a case of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm. He was arrested by the Robertson police on November 30, 2010 and appeared in court on May 8, 2011. He was due to appear in court again, but did not show up. If you have any information, please contact WO Clive Stemmet on 0 023 626 8340 or 072 269 6113. )) Die polisie op Robertson is op soek na Ernst Moller van Namibië wat hulle moontlik kan help met die ondersoek van ’n bedrogsaak. Dit hou verband met die koop van petrol ter waarde van R350 met ’n petrolkaart wat glo nie goedgekeur is nie. Enigiemand met inligting word versoek om ao. Julian Stevens by 0 023 626 8340 te bel. )) Die Robertson-polisie waarsku alle motoriste op Robertson om hul motors te alle tye te sluit en om geen waardevolle items in die motor te laat nie. Die versoek word gedoen ná ’n reeks inbrake in motors die afgelope tyd. )) Die gemeenskap word herinner aan die vergadering van die gemeenskapspolisiëring-subforum op Woensdag 30 Mei in die Dawie de Wetsaal om 19:00. Die doel is om die misdaadstatistiek van die landelike areas met inwoners te bespreek om sodoende ’n beter verhouding tussen die polisie en die gemeenskap te vestig. Lede van die gemeenskap sal geleentheid kry om voorstelle te maak en om spesifieke probleme te bespreek.

Ashton Kelder’s rich history


SHTON KELDER celebrates its 50th birthday this month, looking back on an interesting history. The town of Ashton owes its existence to the railway station established in 1887 by Cape Central Railway on the farm Roodewal. A number of farmers, mainly bordering on Ashton, Bonnievale and Robertson, considered establishing a co-operative cellar to cater for their needs. The idea found favour and on May 10 in 1962 an inaugural meeting was held, at which it was decided to proceed. So enthusiastic were the proponents of the scheme, that farmers came along with money in their pockets which they eagerly handed over to get the ball rolling, without even asking for a receipt. Ashton Co-operative Wine Cellar was launched with 28 members and a board of directors was chosen with Mr P.P. Jordaan as chairman. A site for the cellar was selected and Jordaan transferred a water right, which he enjoyed from a Brandvlei irrigation canal, to

the Co-op since the ground on which the cellar was to be erected had no other source of water. Almost immediately, work was begun on digging trenches to carry a pipeline to the site where there had previously been a quarry. The Land Bank was approached for a loan, which was initially refused, but the bank under-estimated the farmers’ determination. When bank officials one day by chance heard the announcement on the regional news service that water was gushing out of the pipeline in the old quarry, they relented and the loan was granted. By the time the cellar was built in 1963, there were 46 members who delivered a total of 2 130 tons of grapes. With the commencement of the 1964 season, there were 56 members and 5 790 tons were pressed. In the 1968 season 10 000 tons were pressed. One of the problems at Ashton was the considerable quantity of grapes being produced which were not suitable for vinifying because of low sugar content. To

deal with these grapes, it was decided to use them for the production of grape concentrate. The most up-to-date machinery for this purpose was imported from West Germany during 1971. Approximately 70 000 hectolitres of juice is converted to grape concentrate annually. The product found great favour and the quality was considered so good, that virtually every wine producer uses it for the sweetening of semi-sweet wine. Ashton wines have won numerous awards at various wine shows. The Co-op currently handles 45 different grape varieties and bottles an extensive range of wines for sale to members and to the public. It also offers a pink Muscat de Hambourg sparkling grape juice. The grape intake normally amounts to 20 000 tons, produced by 60 farmers, making it one of the bigger co-operative cellars in the Western Cape operating under one roof, an example of what can come from small beginnings with a spirit of co-operation and the will to succeed.

The surrounding grounds at Ashton Kelder are perfect for a picnic.

Warm up with winter winners BY DANIQUE FULLARD


N an almost unrecognisable and mysterious way, winter always seems to lure me into a totally different state of mind. My love of fresh light colours and zesty flavours in summer has been completely consumed by a desire for richer, deeper colours and heartier, warmer meals. Reds, oranges and earthy browns fill my winter palate, so on the menu this week are colour-inspired meals. Roasted butternut soup with Camembert (Serves 4) )) 2 red peppers, halved and seeded )) 800 g butternut, cubed )) 1 head of garlic )) Olive oil )) 50 g butter )) 2 medium onions, chopped )) 120 ml dry sherry )) one litre vegetable or chicken stock )) 250 g streaky bacon, chopped and grilled until crisp )) 1 ripe Camembert round, cut into wedges Place the red peppers and butternut into a roasting pan.

Draw for Cartoon Network YOUNG artists are invited to participate in Animation Generation, a nationwide drawing competition to promote the art of illustration in schools across the country. The competition is now in its seventh year and sponsored by Cartoon Network. The campaign will target 1 900 primary schools in South Africa, including a number already confirmed in the Langeberg area, with participating children between the ages of 6 and14 years old. Up for grabs are iPads, Blackberrys and iPods for the top three entries in every age group and the school with the most entries overall will receive an awesome R10 000. This years Animation Generation theme is “The Amazing World of Gumball”. Students are encouraged to design and create the newest student to join Gumball and his friends at Elmore Junior High School. The aim is to give students the chance to let their imaginations run wild with Cartoon Network. All entries must be original and as imaginative as possible. The top three entries in each of the three age groups (6 to 8 years, 9 to 11 years and 12 to 14 years) will also be aired on Cartoon Network, giving the winning students the thrill of having their artwork shown in a promotional clip throughout Africa. The campaign kicked off in schools on May 22. The closing date for entries is September 3. Visit for more information.

garlic to expose the flesh, and then add to the pan. Drizzle the vegetables with olive oil and roast at 200°C for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender. Remove from the oven and press the flesh out of the garlic skins, and then discard the skins. Heat the butter in a saucepan. Sauté the chopped onions until soft and add the sherry and the vegetables. Cover and simmer over a low heat for 15 minutes. Transfer mixture to a food processor and blend until smooth. Otherwise, transfer to a dish and blitz using a blendstick. Return the mixture to the saucepan and add the stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for ten minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Top each serving of soup with crisp bacon pieces and wedges of Camembert and serve immediately. )) Tomato and beetroot soup with coriander cream )) Serves 4-6 )) 15 ml oil )) 1 large onion, chopped )) 2 cloves garlic, crushed )) 600 g fresh, ripe tomatoes, peeled )) 400 g beetroot, peeled and grated )) 650 ml prepared chicken stock

)) Juice and grated zest of 1 orange )) 15 ml honey )) 1 cinnamon stick )) 2 ml ground allspice )) 30 ml fresh coriander, finely chopped )) 125 ml sour cream Heat the oil and sauté the onion and garlic until soft. Add the remaining ingredients, except the coriander and the sour cream. Bring to the boil, and then simmer for 45 minutes. Remove the cinnamon stick and blend the soup in a liquidiser or using a blending stick until smooth. Season to taste. Blend the coriander and sour cream together until smooth. Serve the soup topped with a spoonful of the coriander cream. Springfield’s Wholeberry Cabernet Sauvignon is a good match. The softer tannins with lively ripe berry flavours will compliment and not overpower this soup. To go with that, living in the beautiful Breede River Valley presents a myriad

of winter activities which I feel inspired to embrace this year. Do not miss out on a morning walk, especially if you have a view of the mistcovered vineyards, followed perhaps by warm toast with homemade jam or a gourmet version of a traditional oats breakfast. When the porridge is thick and cooked through, ladle into bowls and stir into each, 1 tbls honey, ½ tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp brown sugar and a knob of butter. Top with 2 tbls raisins and enjoy with freshly perculated coffee.
