Working with the local community, issues were identified, as well as the aspirations and programme needs of the young people of Groendal. Together, they drafted a five-year community action plan.

Dear Val de Vie Resident Let’s turn your home into a haven There is something about winter in Paarl that’s simply magical. While it may bring the rain and the cold, it also brings those magical winter days we all love! With crisp blue skies, perfect temperature and mountains that seem to hug us ever closer. That’s when we again realise we live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. But winter is also a time of regeneration, and your own home is the perfect place to start. At Incanda, we have a professional team of decorators and project managers who can help turn your home into a haven. Today I would like to introduce you to three of the very talented ladies on our team, as well as a male member of the Incanda team. Elmari van der Merwe joined Incanda in 2007 and currently leads our Project Team. With a Bachelors degree in Consumer Sciences (Housing) from Stellenbosch University, Elmari has extensive experience in interior design and project management. She truly is a multitalented individual and apart from managing projects all over South Africa, Namibia and Mauritius, she also buys decorating accessories for our Paarl, Durbanville and soon-to-be-opened (1 August) Greenside, Johannesburg stores. And as if that is not enough, she also manages the production side of our handbag factory. Elmari has the amazing ability to simply focus on what needs to be done, and then she gets it done.
Helene de Waal joined Incanda in 2010, and holds a higher diploma in Interior Design. She cut her teeth in our re-upholstery division but soon established herself as a master in the area of paint techniques, colours and combinations. Helene has a special preference for neutral and pastel colours, and often I am amazed at how she creates harmony in the most chaotic of homes by systematically implementing a basic palette throughout the whole house. Also meet Valerea Horn, who holds a B. Tech degree in Interior Design (CPUT) and boasts extensive local and international experience in the interior design and architectural fields. She has been trusted with some of the most luxurious homes in South Africa, including the opulent Vergelegen VIP Residence of Cynthia Carol (former CEO of Anglo American). Valerea is famous for adding a touch of bling to her projects; so if you want to stand out from the crowd, she’s your girl! Together these ladies form a formidable team. Their collective expertise has extended the scope of the projects we can now undertake at Incanda, and I am immensely proud of how they have grown as a team. The fourth member of the team may be a little camera-shy, but he is no less incredibly valuable. Ichbert Franszen, our installations specialist, has completed more than 300 kitchen installations during his career, and he sees to it that all the ladies’ plans are executed to perfection. Ichbert currently heads up a 40 unit luxury student accommodation project in Stellenbosch where he is installing solid blackwood finishes on kitchens, cupboards, study desks and vanities. Regards
Helene de Waal

Claudia Grove’s Sweet
t was a great pleasure for the Events team to host Val de Vie resident, Claudia’s sweet 16 birthday party at the Val de Vie Polo Club
Restaurant. A pink and turquoise décor scheme set the tone for a beautifully styled event. The guests were greeted on arrival with virgin strawberry daiquiris served in square chutney bottles as a delicious welcoming drink. A luxurious high-tea spread awaited the girls, offering treats such as cucumber and cream cheese sandwiches, mini sun-dried tomato and feta tartlets, bacon and cheese quiches, chicken and mushroom pies, mini strawberry cheesecakes in tumblers, mini lemon meringue pies, mini moist carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and soft pink and turquoise macaroons. The bookshelves were transformed into an extravagant candy and cake station, with the theme “sweet sixteen and never missed a treat”. The fun-filled day was a true celebration of Claudia, from the personalised details in the décor to the birthday performers. Val de Vie Events thoroughly enjoyed conceptualising such a special day for such a lovely young lady.

Save The Date for our Annual Spring Day High Tea Charity Fund Raiser, 6th September 2014 10h00
...comprise of a group of like-minded women whose main objective is to make a difference in communities that need it the most in our beautiful country. We provide humanitarian service and create awareness in support of our various charities. We are a non-profit association and arrange and manage various annual charity events to raise money to assist with our many community project’s.
It was a night of 60’s fashion and glamour at Val de Vie The Filly’s once again hosted their 3rd Annual Corporate Charity Fund Raiser Event last month in aid of numerous charities and projects within our valley. With startling 60’s themed décor, the ballroom was transformed into a vibrant, bustling casino. Shannon Devy’s solo performance was as stunning as always and Crimson House Blues rocked the house. An eye catching LED show performed by dancers from The Psychedelic Theatre lit up the night and a very special thanks goes to Ray at Dance Domain for providing, very last minute, spectacular 60’s rock and Roll dance numbers between performance sets. An event such as this would never be possible without the kind and generous support from sponsors. So, an enormous thank you to this year’s table sponsors: Thorburn Technical Solutions and Thorburn Security; S&J Logistics, Jooste Marais, The Car Finance Company and Africadabra Events. In addition to these sponsors, we extend our sincere thanks to Thirst Bar Services for their loyal partnership over the years with our events, Mars Chocolates for yet another “chocolate-fest-buffet-feast” and of course to all our other sponsors for give-aways, prizes, food and drinks. Thank you for making a defined difference to the less fortunate. Whilst the attendance at this year’s event was not as great as in previous years, the evening was an enormous success. Thank you to everyone who did join us in support of The Filly’s.
The Little Angels Creché, Franschhoek From planning and council approvals, to security clearances and building hiccups, this project has taken the Filly’s over two years to complete. Together with various fund raising efforts, several kind sponsors and a very generous cash donation from Regent Insurance, it was completed in March ’14.
Over the past three years, you’ve helped us to make a difference! Thank You!
•We’ve assisted the HTA (Hope Through Action) foundation by providing funds for qualified sports instructors to train and facilitate local clubs and schools.
•We’ve built a skills development crèche in Franschhoek for 20 children.
•Fed 750 pupils at the Amstelhof Primary School & we provide milk on an ongoing, monthly basis
•We’ve assisted over 300 new moms (most under the age of 19 and many victims of abuse and rape) with care packages and baby support
•Secured 20 computers and teachers and pupil training thereof through the generous sponsorship of EOH to the Amstelhof Primary School.
•Fed hundreds of animals at the SPCA. •Donated boxes of toys, stationery, food, clothing, linen and supplies to numerous schools, crechés, the Drakenstein Hospice shop, The Franschhoek Hospice and the Rock Crises Centre.
•Blessed these same children with gifted Christmas shoeboxes in our LIGHT OF LOVE project. •Assisted with functions for hospitals, clinics and community centres.
Our Light of Love Project FILLIES3
In September of last year, we launched our very exciting “Light of Love Project” that aimed to provide each child at the Amstelhof Primary School with a Christmas shoebox containing similar contents to that of other projects that run in the second half of each year. We received tremendous support from families and companies throughout the Valley and were able to bless 750 children with their own, personalised gift boxes. This year, we are aiming for 1000 boxes to include smaller schools and creche’s in the area and need your support. If you would like to be involved by either sponsoring a box or donating funds to this project, please mail us on lightofloveproject@ fillys.co.za and indicate the number of boxes you would like to sponsor or prepare. Specific details pertaining to the contents, age and gender will then be outlined to you on receipt of your mail. Please note that the cost per box must be limited to R 150.00.

o recognise all of our terrific mothers, Kinder Ark hosted a “Bring your Mommy to School” event. On their
arrival, all the moms were welcomed with a hot cup of coffee and pancakes. Thereafter, each little one gave their mom a glass jar containing beads and a clay heart with their thumbprint on it, which they made at school during the theme “My Mommy is Special”.
Using the beads
and heart, moms and their children made a keychain for their Mother’s Day gift.
also received a Mother’s Day card with two handprints. The children decorated one hand with buttons and the card read: “Mom you are the buttons that keep everything together”. Thank you to all the moms who are doing such a wonderful job raising happy, balanced children. It is a tremendous privilege to be a mother, but even more so, to be a child who grows up in a loving, caring, and supportive household. May God bless you, and may every decision you make regarding your children be in His favour. You are awesome mothers!!!
