SOPHISTICATED HOMES: CLOSE TO MANY EXCELLENT LOCAL SCHOOLS

Carefree lifestyle at Boschenmeer Boschenmeer Golf and Country Estate, located on the outskirts of Paarl, is now almost fully developed, with just 11 vacant erven remaining out of a total of 485 properties. Pam Golding Properties (PGP) reports that the secure estate is one of the most sought-after in the Boland, offering a family-friendly country lifestyle with excellent security, convenient communal facilities and panoramic mountain views. The 140 ha estate enjoys a picturesque setting on the banks of the Berg River, framed by views of Paarl Rock and the Drakenstein Mountains. PGP’s area manager for Paarl and Franschhoek, Surina du Toit, says 10 properties have been sold on the estate this year (2013) – half of them by PGP agents. These include a vacant plot of 828 m², sold for R710 000 in April, plus four family homes sold for between R2,5 million and R4,3 million. The PGP sales included the two highest prices achieved on the estate this year, namely R4,3 million and R3,55 million. Boschenmeer was developed in 1997 around the existing Paarl Golf Club, and offered the first 27-hole course in the Western Cape – a David Frost signature course. A new clubhouse was opened in 2004, and all residents of the estate have access to its facilities, including a driving range, restaurant, Pro Shop, carwash and Virtual Golf area, as well as a Golf Academy, ideal for improving one’s game or introducing youngsters to the sport. The golf course forms the heart of the residential estate, with nearly 90 percent of all homes facing directly onto the greens and fairways.

This three­bedroom home in the Boschenmeer Estate is on the mar­ ket through Pam Golding Proper­ ties, priced at R3,69 million.

This sophisticated home in the Boschenmeer Gold and Country Estate is on the market exclusively through Pam Golding Properties, priced at R4,65 million. Du Toit says the estate is renowned for its carefree family lifestyle and magnificent mountain views. “This is a place where children can still play outdoors in safety, feed the ducks and ride their bicycles in the street,” she says. “It is a very safe and wholesome environment for families, protected by excellent security including 24-hour manned entrances with access control, and dog patrols at night. Be-

sides the golf club, residents can utilise other superb communal facilities such as two tennis courts and a swimming pool, as well as a boma catering for up to 50 guests, which can be rented out for functions and events. “Another factor attracting family buyers is the proximity to the many excellent local schools, both government and private, and to the Paarl Mall.

“There is even on-site accommodation which can be rented by their guests, including a boutique hotel and a few self-catering lodges. And of course there are a dozen superb wine farms within a 20 km radius of the estate, as well as ample opportunities for hiking, climbing, mountain-biking and kayaking.” Homes on the estate are separated into separate nodes to match the different lifestyle needs of buyers.

These include a mix of full title and sectional title townhouses, smaller “country homes” on erven of under 400 m², and larger family homes on plots ranging from 400 m² to 1 000 m². Of the remaining 11 vacant erven, Du Toit says seven are currently on the market, with prices ranging from R820 000 for a 400 m² plot, to R1,495 million for 600 m². The entry level pricing for townhouses starts at around R1,4 million, while the compact country homes typically fetch between R2 million and R2,5 million. Large family homes on larger erven can fetch anything from R3 million and more, depending on size and the level of luxury finishes. Architectural guidelines maintain a Cape Vernacular design theme, while still catering for owners’ individual taste. PGP currently has a range of properties on offer in the estate, ranging from large family homes to compact townhouses. To view these homes, or for more information on Boschenmeer Country Estate, contact PGP agent Igna de Villiers on 082 884 8492 or igna.devilliers@pamgolding.co.za.

Nuwe begroting vir ’n nuwe huis

Dis weer “belastingseisoen” en ’n goeie geleentheid om ’n akkurate staat van inkomste en uitgawes vir die afgelope jaar op te stel en om jou finansiële en spaarmikpunte vir die komende 12 maande onder die loep te neem, veral as jy beplan om binne die volgende jaar ’n huis van jou eie te koop.

Dit is die raad van Berry Everitt, besturende direkteur van die Chas Everitt International-eiendomsgroep. Hy wys daarop dat raadgewers se heel eerste raad gewoonlik is om jou begroting by nuwe omstandighede aan te pas, soos werks- of salarisveranderings, veranderings in jou huishoudelike omstandighede of leefstyl en jou planne om skuld te verminder en meer te spaar. Tweedens, sê hy, moet jy seker maak almal in jou gesin het dieselfde oogmerke. “In die meeste huishoudings is daar gewoonlik een persoon wat geldsake hanteer, maar dis altyd ‘n goeie plan om die begroting en finansiële oogmerke minstens een keer per jaar met ’n eggenoot of lewensmaat en ouer kinders te bespreek en hul samewerking – en voorstelle – vir minder uitgawes en meer besparings te vra.” Everitt skryf in die nuusbrief, Property Signposts, dat geldkenners dit eens is dat dit makliker is om te spaar as jy ’n spesifieke oogmerk het, byvoorbeeld ’n doelgemaakte fonds vir noodgevalle, vir ’n reis, universiteitsgelde of ’n aftreefonds – of ’n deposito om ’n huis te koop. “Kenners wys egter ook daarop dat dit gewoonlik ’n goeie plan is om eers uitstaande skuld af te betaal voordat jy geld in ’n spaarrekening stort. Die rede hiervoor is dat die rente wat jy uit ’n spaarrekening verdien minder is as die rente wat op skuld gehef word. “Dit is veral belangrike raad vir mense wat beplan om ’n eerste huis te koop aangesien banke ingevolge die Nasionale Kredietwet nie huislenings aan mense met hoë huishoudelike skuldvlakke kan toestaan nie.” Die derde stap, sê hy, is om jou skuldlas realisties onder oë te neem en dadelik planne te maak om dit te verminder. “En al maak dit rekenkundig dalk meer sin om skuld met die hoogste rentekoers eerste af te betaal, het navorsing telkens bewys dat verbruikers meer gemotiveerd is om skuld af te betaal indien hulle eers werk maak van kleiner bedrae en dan die ‘paaiemente’ wat hulle spaar op groter skuld betaal. Dit is waarskynlik die beste metode indien jy regtig al jou skuld wil afbetaal.” Everitt sê die proses kan vergemaklik word as jy elke item in jou bestaande begroting fynkam en dan enige besparing wat jy kan maak, aanwend om skuld af te betaal. “Items wat veral hersien kan word, sluit in water- en kragrekenings, vervoer, winkelkaarte en selfoonrekenings – en dis waar dit nuttig is as die hele gesin koppe bymekaar sit en saamwerk om

koste te besnoei. “Dis ook die aangewese tyd om jou huishoudelike, voertuig-, lewens- en mediese versekering onder die loep te neem en seker te maak jy bestee nie te veel – of te min – nie. Jy kan byvoorbeeld op motorversekering bespaar as die markwaarde die afgelope jaar afgeneem het, maar as jy die afgelope 12 maande nuwe meubels of ander huisraad gekoop het, moet jy die premie vir jou huishoudelike versekering opskuif om seker te maak dat jy nie onderverseker is nie.” Dis ook belangrik om seker te maak jy skeep nie lewens-, ongeskiktheid-, gesondheids- of hospitaalversekering af nie, veral as jy ’n gesin het, maar dit is beslis die moeite werd om die fyndruk te lees om uit te vind presies waarvoor jy betaal en dan kwotasies elders te bekom om te bepaal of jy straks beter dekking vir dieselfde premie, of dieselfde dekking teen ‘n laer premie kan kry, sê hy. “Jou laaste taak is om jou begroting en alle finansiële dokumente te liasseer en op ’n veilige plek te bêre. Jou dokumente behoort ’n lys van alle bank- en beleggingsrekenings, versekeringspolisse in te sluit asook ’n volle inventaris van alles in jou huis wat verseker is en wat in geval van ’n ramp vervang moet word. Jou inventaris behoort meubels, toerusting, klere, gesertifiseerde juwele, kunswerke en ander waardevolle items in te sluit – en as dit elders geberg word, soos by jou bank, jou eggenoot of ’n ander betroubare persoon, moet jy weet hoe om dit in geval van nood vinnig in die hande te kry,” skryf Everitt.

Do sellers really needs showhouses and boards? Many sellers have an aversion to putting their property on show, or erecting a For Sale board. Do you really need these to sell your home? No – not if you don’t want to sell for full market value. Allow me to explain. Every buyer will try to purchase for the lowest amount. If a property is listed at R1 500 000 and the buyer believes there is little interest in the property, the chances of a full price offer are slim. However, if there is evidence of strong buyer activity on the property and the possibility of other offers, then a buyer will be motivated to make his best offer. It’s called buyer competition – and it’s the only was to ensure you sell for the highest price in the market. So how do we create strong buyer competition? We need to ensure that the property is marketed to the widest buyer audience possible. This will include print and electronic marketing, but should also include the use of show houses and For Sale boards. Why? A typical buyer will drive through the areas they are interested in purchasing in. They will be drawn to For Sale boards and, if the property appeals from the outside, they will enquire on price and then make an appointment to view. At Harcourts we use photo boards which attract a buyer to a photo, as well as give information on accommodation, and a QR code that scans to the website where price and other details are available. When a buyer enquires off a board and they already know the accommodation, the price, and the location, the quality of the enquiry is exceptionally strong. That means viewing by a genuine purchaser with strong interest – and less timewasting on unqualified buyers. Show houses are a very powerful tool in achieving buyer competition. It’s important to ensure that show houses are properly marketed – just erecting a few boards and hoping for the best is not the way to do it as you attract many unqualified purchasers. But when buyers in a database are matched to a show house and specifically invited to the show house, and the show

Talking Property by Steve Caradoc­Dav­ ies, Principal of Harcourts Platinum ouse is advertised, then attendance is strong. In addition to this, at Harcourts Platinum we have been trialing show houses that run for shorter, more condensed periods, such as 45 minutes to 1 hour. The show houses are advertised in the body of our main print advert with the opening times. The response has been incredible. In many cases we have a group of buyers waiting at the show house for it to open. At a recent show house we had 12 different, qualified buyer groups through a luxury property in 1 hour. Buyers who showed interest could see the buyer competition and were motivated to act swiftly, making their best offer. The result was a sale at 98% of asking price within 2 days, and the property had only been listed 1 week. So, if you want to sell for the best price the market will pay then don’t reject showhouses and For Sale boards. They make all the difference. - Email your real estate question to steve.cd@harcourts.co.za.

Hot tips for a cool pool this summer July and August are generally the busiest months of the year for swimming pool builders, as homeowners look forward to summer and take advantage of the dry weather in most parts of the country to get their additions and alterations done. “But with pools, as with any home improvement, the secret of being able to really enjoy the finished work is to start right – by picking the best contractor and controlling the building process,” says Berry Everitt, MD of the Chas Everitt International property group. Writing in the Property Signposts newsletter, he has the following advice for homeowners:

) Never hire anyone who comes to your door unsolicited or interrupts dinner with a telesales “special offer”. If you want to put in a pool, you make the first move, and find out what planning permission you need from your local authority to do so. Then get quotes from at least three reputable pool builders who are members of the National Spa and Pool Institute (see list on www.nspi.co.za). ) Don’t base your choice of contractor entirely on price. Research the track record of each company. They should have no less than three years’ experience building pools, be able to show you photos of their finished work and be able to supply phone numbers of past clients you can call for references. ) Insist on running a credit check before

settling on a contractor. You can do this on the Internet now at a minimal cost. ) Ask about who will be doing the actual work – the contractor’s employees, or subcontractors? Good pool companies use their own labour, and will only start work once the necessary plans have been approved. ) Protect yourself. Get everything in writing and never pay more than a 10% deposit – and that into a proper bank account, not in cash. ) Link all further payments to specific building “milestones” and hold on to the final 10% until you are satisfied that all is in working order and, if required, you have received approval from the local building or safety inspector.

Chlidanthus, the scent of spring What is it with the spring season that gets us all excited? Yes, there’s that element of new life and the prospect of new beginnings, but there’s also a wonderful sensory appreciation for nature – new blossoms, their scents, their beautiful prettiness and their promise of soon-to-grow fruit. As floral themes pop up everywhere – from fabric ranges to school projects – you may want to join in the flower-power brigade by planting bulbs that love flowering in September and October when spring is at its peak. Chlidanthus, with their incredibly sweet,

citrus fragrance, should be your first port of call when choosing a bulb to really make you feel like spring has sprung. Known as the perfumed fairy lily, C. fragrans is the species available to gardeners (it’s also known as the Peruvian daffodil for its origin in the Peruvian Andes), a species guaranteed to fill your home with the exhilarating aroma of the new season. C. fragrans’ funnel-shaped yellow flowers are a striking little collection of petals, 10 cm in diameter, on 20 cm long spikes. Because the flowers appear before the leaves do, there’s nothing for them to hide behind – just bloom after bloom, about three or four on a stem.

The Greek word from which Chlidanthus is derived – chlide, meaning opulence – is indicative of the strong statement these blooms can make. For your own garden of opulence, plant these bulbs (which should be for sale in August and September) in an area of full sun to semi-shade, 4 cm below the ground, and 8 cm apart from one another, in friable soil containing nutritious, old compost. This should be done in early spring (September and October) for best results. If planting directly in the garden, consider lining a walkway with these plants so that the scent carries you along your walk, or on a terrace at eye level so that you’re instantly hit by the scent as you pass by. Alternatively, pots are a great way to carry the scent indoors when the flowers begin to bloom, affording you a true sense of spring inside your home, and not just out in the garden. What’s more, indoors you have less chance of these plants being pestered by the snails and slugs that love attaching themselves to Chlidanthus. The bulbs will go into a dormant state between April and June, so if you wish to lift them, do so at the end of this period, in the month of June. Offsets should be kept for planting, although patience may be required with these, as they usually take three years to flower. The same patience may be necessary when waiting for winter to end so that you can start planting your favourite sweet-smelling yellow petals. No matter where you choose to plant your Chlidanthus, you can take advantage of their potential as great cut flowers and place them in vases in each room in the house, giving your interiors a spring in every step. – Rian Swanepoel, Hadeco Bulbs

Franschhoek home sales almost double in 2013 The cumulative value of residential sales in Franschhoek has nearly doubled year-on-year in 2013 over 2012, says Bev Malan of Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty Franschhoek. “In the period of January– March 2012, nine residential sales to the value of almost R27 million were concluded,” says Malan. “Over the same period this year 15 residential sales to the value of R54 million were concluded. That’s an astonishing rise on last year’s figure.” Increased demand for the winelands’ country lifestyle is driving

prices up as buyers not only from Cape Town but from Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal snap up properties too. Additionally, there is very little land available for development, which makes Franschhoek’s historic homes even more valuable to buyers. “What land there is, is being bought up rapidly, says Malan. “Three of the five lifestyle estates in Franschoek, which include the well-known La Ferme Chantelle and Domaine des Anges Estates, are completely sold out and there is very little free land for development in the village.”

Over the past six months Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty has sold four erven with a cumulative value exceeding R6 mil-

R950 000 and R975 000, respectively, were sold to South Africans. The third was a 1 500 m² plot and plan in a security estate that sold

for R1,650 million. “When people invest in Franschhoek, they’re investing in

a lifestyle,” says Malan. “South African buyers in particular are drawn not only to the beauty of the area, but also to the feeling of security and community that comes with village life. This is particularly the case in the area’s gated estates and is a major draw-card for both young families and older residents looking for a place to settle down and retire.” Property prices in Franschhoek range from R3,5 million for a 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home in the village to R10,5 million for a top-tier 7-bedroom, 7-bathroom home with mountain views.


OVER 2 000 KM OF TESTING COMPLETED IN ONE WEEK

Toyota Motorsport prepares for 2014 Dakar Rally in Namib desert QUICKPIC

A week of concentrated testing in the Namib Desert near Walvis Bay has taken Toyota Motorsport South Africa a big step forward in their preparations for the 2014 Dakar Rally in South America from January 5 to 18. It will be the third time the Toyota Imperial Dakar Team tackles the world’s longest and toughest motor race following a third place in 2012 and a second in 2013. The team will again enjoy sponsorship support from commercial partners Imperial Toyota, Duxbury Netgear, Innovation Group and Toyota Financial Services. 2009 Dakar winners Giniel de Villiers and Dirk von Zitzewitz, third in 2012 and second in 2013, and Imperial Toyota Hilux team-mates, Dakar rookie Leeroy Poulter and Rob Howie, who navigated Duncan Vos to 10th place in 2012, travelled to the vast, open expanse of the Namib, some 32 km south east of Walvis Bay and within 18 km of the Atlantic Ocean, to take advantage of the combination of sand dune fields and gravel tracks closely resembling the geography they will experience in the Dakar Rally. “Since our success in the 2013 Dakar Rally in January we have continued our development of the Toyota Hilux in the Donaldson South African Cross Country Championship, which is one of the toughest and most respected national championships in the world,” said team principal Glyn Hall. “Anthony Taylor and Dennis Murphy are leading the championship with three rounds remaining after

winning the last three rounds and Duncan Vos and Rob Howie are third, so we are happy with our progress. I’d say that the local championship satisfies 55% to 65% of what we need to know to tackle the next Dakar with confidence, with the obvious exception of driving on sand dunes. “The local championship gives us the opportunity to test the reliability of the vehicle’s components. For the rest we’ve come to Namibia – for the sand dunes and the semi-desert environment that is so similar to the geography of the South American coastal areas, specifically in Chile’s Atacama desert, reputed to be the driest in the world.” The team, under the ever-watchful eye of Hall, has been concentrating on setting up the chassis and suspension of the Hilux and also worked on the aerodynamics, brakes, gearing, drive train and new air conditioning, the latter greatly appreciated by Giniel and Dirk . Poulter took full advantage of the opportunity to drive the Hilux in the sand dunes for the first time. While other engines were evaluated, it was decided to stick with the 5 F V8-version that did duty on this year’s Dakar and that powers the two domestic championship vehicles. “The weather conditions were perfect for the entire week enabling the team to complete over 2 000 km of valuable testing in the desert,” said Hall. “We got through our very full programme of tasks and nearly all were completed with good results, especially the new suspension which was only finished the day before we left. A great team effort. We still have some issues to sort out, which is com-

PHOTO: QUICKPIC monplace when you are developing new ideas. “Leeroy, as we expected, has fitted into the Dakar team very easily and has gained valuable knowledge in both the big sand dunes and rough gravel conditions ahead of the Dakar. He used every hour available to run in the dunes and finalised some of the testing of the new car while Giniel completed some television work on the final day. “We now need to complete the two

new Dakar bakkies that are under construction in our workshop and apply what we’ve learnt this past week in Namibia. There is still a lot of work that lies ahead and the pressure will be on until we deliver the Dakar vehicles to South African Airways early in December.” The team returned to home base at Barbecue Downs near Kyalami on Sunday to complete preparations for the next round of the South African cross country championship, the all-

new Vryburg 400 in North West Province next weekend. Toyota Motorsport South Africa acknowledges its Dakar sponsors, specialist official suppliers and technical partners: Toyota, Imperial Toyota Group, Duxbury Netgear, Innovation Group, Toyota Financial Services, Blue Sky, Bosch, Castrol, DeWalt, Donaldson, Edgecam, 4x4 Mega World, Hallspeed, Mastercraft, Michelin, Mistral, NGK, Oakley, SKF, Spanjaard and TFM.

Fresh and exciting MG3 coming to South Africa QUICKPIC South African fans of British connoisseur brand MG have something to look forward to at the upcoming Johannesburg International Motor Show (JIMS) in October – a sneak preview of the new MG3, only to be launched in its home country next month. This new supermini will appeal to the younger generation with its sporty 78 kW engine and chassis dynamics, as well as generous spec, practicality and advanced safety. The new MG3, which is expected in South Africa before the end of the year, proves the saying “dynamite comes in small packages”! In the event of the MG3, however, it is more a case of TNT – the new supermini boasts unique design features such as its signature front LED daytime running lights and a wrap-around front windscreen. Hidden from the sporty exterior styling is a spacious interior – one of the largest in the supermini class. Multiple airbags and a host of mechanical and electronic safety features offer some of the latest safety technology as standard equipment. The key attraction for many peo-

ple will not only be the attractive looks of the new MG3, but also the massive fun factor offered by this new 5-door hatch with its spacious interior. South African MG chief operating officer Craig Lanham-Love says the new MG3 offers buyers something really new. “It is a stylish, highly practical car that is huge fun to drive and fun to own.” Still to be launched to the UK market (September 2013), four models will be available to choose from, with a full range of options and accessories. Specifications and options for the South African market will be announced at the Johannesburg International Motor Show in October, with pricing expected to be announced closer to launch in the last quarter of the year. The four models are the flagship MG3 Style, the mid-range MG3 Form and MG3 Form Sport, as well as the entry model MG3 Time. Details of the local line-up for the South African market will be announced closer to launch. All models are powered by a sporty Dohc VTi-Tech petrol engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox and have the same great MG chassis designed to make driving the MG3 a bit more fun than any

The 1,5 F engine delivers 78 kW at 6 000 rpm and 137 Nm of torque at 4 750 rpm, making it an easily driveable car. Acceleration from 0–100 km/h is expected to be around 10 seconds, reaching a top speed in excess of 175 km/h. PHOTO: QUICKPIC average car in this segment.

Acceleration from 0–100 km/h is expected to be around 10 seconds, reaching a top speed in excess of 175 km/h.

MG South Africa general manager Derrick Bishop describes the MG3 as a modern MG that allows a new generation of people to have fun with their MG. “And don’t be fooled by the compact dimensions on the outside – the new MG3 boast one of the larg-

est interiors in the supermini class,” says Bishop. The new range of models to be launched in South Africa will be on show at the JIMS from 18 to 27 October, and will be unveiled to the media on 16 and 17 October (media days for accredited media).

Big on car, small on price – the Nissan Almera returns QUICKPIC The new Nissan Almera is available with a 1.5F petrol engine. The 1 498 cc unit produces a healthy 73 kW of power at 6 000 rpm and 134 Nm of torque at 4 000 rpm. The low-emission and efficient engine allows the five-speed manual version of the new Nissan Almera to achieve average combined cycle fuel economy of 6.3F per 100 km, the four-speed automatic variant achieving 7.2. Carbon emissions for both models are 149 g/km and 171 g/km respectively. The already compact engine has been redesigned and repackaged for the new Almera, various components including the air filter, fuel hose and intake manifold being adapted to suit the compact nature of the Almera’s engine bay – which has been designed around minimal proportions in order to maximise interior space. The automatic gearbox in particular has seen comprehensive design enhancements which contribute to its light weight, compact nature. Changes include flattening of the torque converter, a reduction in the total number of gearbox components by 12%, relocation of the gear layout and a more compact direct control linear solenoid – all of which results in a total length reduction of

to a significant reduction in booming noise while driving – low frequency sounds and vibrations which worsen NVH levels. The “roof beads’ also contribute to better fuel consumption thanks to cleaner aerodynamics. The chassis also contributes to enhanced efficiency as a result of an innovative redesign of key elements which impact on the vehicle’s weight and under-body aerodynamics. New materials and improved machining processes also underwrite a lighter, more rigid and more aerodynamic undercarriage. Suspension is by Macpherson strut with coil-over dampers up front, with an H-type torsion beam arrangement at the rear. Several design improvements have weight-loss effects as well, the benefactors being fuel economy and ride quality, where a 15% increase in suspension stroke at the front is particularly significant. The weight-saving continues in other aspects of the new Almera including the rear brake drums and indeed the interior, where a parts reduction in dashboard construction results in a weight saving of 3,4 kg alone. ) New Nissan Almera price (including VAT): Almera 1.5 Acenta Manual: R165 000 Almera 1.5 Acenta Automatic: R175 500

Ford cleans up on home event QUICKPIC

Volkswagen employees get state of art facility QUICKPIC Volkswagen Group South Africa has opened a world class sports and recreational facility for its employees at the manufacturing factory in Uitenhage. The R30 million PeoplePavilion, which caters for indoor and outdoor sporting activities, will be used by all Volkswagen employees and their families on any day of the week. “The PeoplePavilion is not just a building but a platform where all our people can engage with each other in a different manner beyond the hierarchical structures. This world-class facility in terms of structure and quality represents what Volkswagen stands for as a people-oriented organisation,” said David Powels, Managing Director of Volkswagen Group South Africa. The PeoplePavilion was built on the same land that housed the previous Volkswagen’s sport complex. “Our initial plan was to renovate and improve the physical structure of our aging sports complex. However, it became apparent when we were reviewing our new company strategy that people form an important pillar of our plan to being a great organisation. This provided us with an opportunity to invest in a people facility which would help to improve their quality of life whilst also allowing us to engage with them,” added Powels. The facility has a gym which is managed by a qualified Biokineticist and is open to all Volkswagen employees to use for a nominal membership fee. The gym will also be used for the rehabilitation of

injured Volkswagen employees and is equipped with purposely built gym equipment. There is also a clubhouse with a licensed bar and terrace which overlooks the multi-purpose main field that will be used for soccer, rugby and cricket. The clubhouse has been outsourced to Ashwin Doolabh, a local entrepreneur who has been mentored and coached at the Volkswagen Business Support Centre in Uitenhage. The highlight of PeoplePavilion is its indoor multi-purpose sports hall which is available to employees and local community to hire for family celebrations such as weddings. The hall can also be converted into a 450-seater conference centre. The multipurpose hall is also fully equipped for indoor sporting activities such as indoor cricket, indoor soccer, volleyball and martial arts. Currently over 1 500 Volkswagen employees (about 30% of the employees in Uitenhage) actively participate in 13 different sporting codes like netball, soccer, cricket, cycling and klawerjas. “We hope the new facility will attract and motivate more people to participate in different sporting codes that are available. We want PeoplePavilion to be home to our talented sports people and their supporters,” said Powels. The facility has already hosted a number of employee events since it opened last month. These include the inaugural soccer match between Volkswagen managers and supervisors as well as an open day for employees and their families. The first stage of the 2013 Volkswagen Rally on 19 July can also be watched from the viewing decks of the clubhouse.

They become our best defenders, so to speak,” jokes Biven with reference to Land Rover’s own iconic Defender. Land Rover will be supporting the Afrikaans is Groot Director team with two Freelanders and two Discoveries over the next 12 months They will get to appreciate the premium brand’s capability in the urban jungle, as much as the adventure of managing the appearances of equally iconic South African artists that include Bok van Blerk, Theuns Jordaan, Jaunita du Plessis, Bobby van Jaarsveld, Arno Jordaan, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Riana Nel and Steve Hofmeyr. “Land Rover’s current line-up is exactly the type of premium vehicle these artists and many of their audience appreciate and own. It’s a great opportunity for the best in premium 4x4s to work with the best in Afrikaans talent.”
