The Sustainable Seas Trust produces films to promote understanding and influence human behaviour and action by government, business and the public. The Trust Sustainability Films (TSF) is currently producing four educational films for the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) and filmed, on location, in Kenton on Sea recently.


The founding trustee and director of the Sustainable Seas Trust (SST), Dr Tony Ribbink, addressed the Kenton on Sea Rotary Club on the 5th of November and announced the relocation of the organisation’s office to The Threeways Centre in Kenton on Sea. Dr Ribbink provided a brief overview of the origins of SST describing how the organisation arose from the African Coelacanth Ecosystem Programme at a time when countries from the Western Indian Ocean noted their interest in the technology and coelacanths research project but called for sustainable and worthwhile projects where the main interest was on the wellbeing of the coastal communities. To encapsulate the inspiration that led to SST, Dr Ribbink cited Nelson Mandela’s words when he was President which emphasized that: Conservation, sustainability and rehabilitation of the environment cannot succeed until we have addressed issues of: Poverty; Food security; Education and skills development; Human dignity and social justice; Human health; Providing employment to marginalized people. As such SST pursues sustainability through knowl-

edge and action through various activities: SST helps rehabilitate marine life to feed people and sustain ecosystems; SST works on food security and sustainable lifestyles; SST provides education and skills training - in classrooms and outside too; SST films are used to promote an understanding and influence human behaviour and action by government, business and the public. To highlight the value of knowledge and learning about our seas Dr Ribbink shared a delightful anecdote from a recent film shoot on the beach in Kenton on Sea, where the film crew and actors, discovered a young octopus ‘walking’ across the rocky shelves between the tidal pools. Before screening a short film produced by SST’s Trust Sustainability Films (TSF) Dr Ribbink highlighted what is under the sea’s surface saying that “people don’t pay enough attention to what they don’t see and as a result our marine life is being destroyed”. “Our current education films: take children to the sea, harbours, estuaries, boats, ships; teach through the eyes of children and share excitement and experiences; are

produced in different languages; use animations; is in line with the school curriculum; is short, about 12 minutes, so suitable for classroom use so teachers can introduce, show and discuss; and show that Kenton is a great place to spend time with children,” Dr Ribbink said. In closing Dr Ribbink highlighted the organisation’s current exciting photographic competition which not only offers wonderful prizes to the public but where all photographic entries stand the chance of being included in a coffee table book to be produced by Struik and launched during Marine Week 2014.

Thank You to SAPS for prompt response Harold and Jenny Wooding were fast asleep at their home on the east bank, in the early hours of Monday morning and not at all disturbed by the robbery that took place only meters away from them. Upon wakening at 06:30, they discovered the break in and theft and notified the police. The policemen, Warrant Officer Chris Van Rensburg and Seargant J.J. Marais arrived at their home to take their statements at 07:00, closely followed by Warrant Officer Schalk Van der Merwe for fingerprinting. Soon after, Constables Abrahams and Doye arrived to take further statement and assist with the investigation.

By 15:00 the same day a suspect had been caught and was in custody. The suspect turned out to be one of the Wooding’s trusted employees. Harold and Jenny would like to thank the South African Police Service for their prompt response, kind and efficient manner in which they dealt with the matter and their effective policing which lead to the timely capture of the suspect.

Jenny Wooding from Woody’s Swop Shop is very pleased with the manner in which the SAPS handled the robbery that occurred at their home in the early hours of Monday morning.


On Wednesday this week, a man popped into our offices at 22 Wharf St offering pot plants for sale. He stole a cell phone from Jenny Kukard while she was out of the office. Fortunately we were pretty sure who had taken the phone so a number of burly men drove around town looking for the culprit who was accompanied by a group people in a white Toyota bakkie filled with pot plants. During this ruckus, the SAPS sent two officers to our premises to take statements. Fortunately Hannes, Jenny’s partner found the culprit and his cohorts near the golf course and persuaded him to return the phone, which he eventually did. DON’T allow these people into your homes, shops, restaurants or offices or you could be the next victim of theft!

Bathurst Primary School needs your help Zena Ndoda (Grade 4) was one of the young girls dressed in traditional costume that gave a very entertaining song and dance routine to entertain the audience at the prizegiving

Bathurst Primary School is the oldest school in South Africa, dating back to 1820 with the first classes being held in a Marquee. Even more interesting was that there was no discrimination and five Fingo pupils were among the first 51 co-ed pupils – quite phenomenal given that at the time there were no girls’ schools in England.

The current principal, Andre Laas, took over in September this year and found the school grounds and buildings in bad need of maintenance and the classrooms lacking the basic educational needs. “Our school is arguably the oldest school in South Africa, dating back to 1820, and it will be a sad day should further deterioration be al-

lowed to take place. We have 112 children from grade one to seven and a further 27 children in Grade R and our school consists of 98% previously disadvantaged leaners.” Mr Laas said. “We are a Section 21 fee paying school with our parents paying R350 per month in school fees. This money is used to pay the salaries of one administrative clerk,

one cleaner indoors as well as three teacher’s salaries. Our new state educator provisioning for 2014 is one principal and two educators which is totally inadequate to meet the needs from grade one to seven. Our departmental budget allocation does not nearly cover all our day to day expenses. “We are desperately in need of any assistance in

Craft co-operatives visit Kariega Game Reserve

Kariega Project , a community empowerment organisation, recently facilitated a visit by representatives of craft co-operatives in Ekuphumleni, to the Kariega Game Reserve curio shop. There are a number of craft co-operatives in Ekuphumleni but finding the right product for the right market is not always easy, so representatives went knocking on Kariega Project’s door to ask for advice. Sean Kelly contacted Kariega Game Reserve and arranged to have Odette van der Merwe take the crafters through the curio shop to identify the products that sell well among their particular clientele. Different outlets have different clientele so Odette provided the crafters with a profile of her particular clientele and their needs. Phumeza Boli represented a co-operative with 35 members; Mileka Ngezu represented Siyabonga co-operative, they have 18 members; Lucy Sineli came from Representatives of craft co-operatives in Ekuphumleni visited Kariega Game Reserve curio Siyazamba co-operative with seven memshop on Tuesday. From left is Phumeza Boli, Mileka Ngezu, Cindy Tana and in front Lucy Sineli. bers and Cindy Tana belongs to Thembalabantu co-operative which currently only has six members.

Comet ISON approaches: ‘Comet Of The Century’ visible through binoculars as it heads towards the sun

This photo, taken November 10th by Michael Jäger of Jauerling Austria, shows a beautiful double tail:

Comet ISON, C/S 2012 S1, still has a date with the sun but is now visible from Earth with a pair of binoculars. The “comet of the century” may end up being a dud as it approaches dangerously close to the surface of the sun around Nov. 28. If ISON survives the trip, it could be visible to the naked eye during the day, but astronomers are still not certain about its fate. As noted previously, Comet ISON is a weird space object, and new observations by researchers from the Max Planck Institute provide new insights on this “cosmic stranger.” As ISON passed by Mars in October, observations from the Hubble space telescope and amateur astronomers revealed an intact nucleus, a sign that the comet has not broken up, but its toughest test will come on Nov. 28. According to Max Planck astronomers, ISON’s orbit will take it as close as 1 million kilometers, 621,371 miles, from the surface of the sun, classifying it as a “sun grazing comet.”

If ISON survives, the comet could put on quite the show on its rebound and may even be visible in broad daylight. The hype surrounding the comet began with its initial discovery in 2012, due to its brightness, but it has been something of a disappointment of late. Despite its recent discovery, Ison is an ancient object that is billions of years old and provides researchers with new information about the early universe. Hermann Böhnhardt, head of ISON observations at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research, said in a statement, “These so-called non-periodic comets contain uncontaminated information from the birth of our solar system.” ISON was expected to become brighter from heating up, but that was not the case. Planck scientists are more optimistic, noting that, while it may not be the dazzling event that was advertised, the comet will still be easily seen in the night sky and is visible from Earth with a pair of binoculars. In addi-

tion to its surface material heating up, ISON’s axis of rotation is creating a reserve of material that will only be burned up as it curves around the sun, making for better viewing opportunities. In a photograph taken on 10 November, the comet shows two tails. One tail is the ion tail. It is a thin streamer of ionized gas pushed away from the comet by solar wind. The filamentary ion tail points almost directly away from the sun. The other tail is the dust tail. Like Hansel and Gretel leaving bread crumbs to mark their way through the forest, ISON is leaving a trail of comet dust as it moves through the solar system. Compared to the lightweight molecules in the ion tail, grains of comet dust are heavier and harder for solar wind to push around. The dust tends to stay where it is dropped. The dust tail, therefore, traces the comet’s orbit and does not point directly away from the sun as the ion tail does. SOURCE:

He spent four years in London at two restaurants, Konnigans and Scoffers before coming back to South Africa and opening a restaurant called The Brass Monkey in Pine Slopes Shopping Centre, opposite Monte Casino in Sandton. The Brass Monkey became the biggest on consumption (beer) pub and restaurant in the northern suburbs of Johannesburg. Choosing to slow things down a little, Bram and his wife Lynn sold Brass Monkey and opened a new restaurant in White River, they named it ‘Alfresco’. Bram’s parents have owned a home in Kenton since 1973, so he knows our area well and a year ago the call of the Kowie became too much and he put Alfresco up for sale and moved down here to reestablish The Wharf St Brew Pub. Lynn, Bram’s wife stayed behind to manage Alfresco until it was sold and five months ago, she and their two gorgeous daughters, three year old Haley and ten year old Jenna, were able to move down to Port Alfred and join Bram in their new venture.

St Andrew’s College 1st XI cricket batsman, Brendan Owen, in the game against Pearson High School last Saturday.

St Andrew’s 1st XI too strong for Pearson The St Andrew’s College 1st XI cricket team took on Pearson High School last Saturday. The match, played on Lower Field in Grahamstown, turned out to be more competitive than some may have expected, with the visitors putting up a strong fight. St Andrew’s won the toss and chose to bat first before managing to post a more than challenging total of 271 for 6 in their allotted 50 overs. Mbulelo Mama, who survived an early chance when he was dropped at cover, made Pearson toil as he compiled an excellent 94 off 105 balls. Brendan Owen (62) also made a more than

useful contribution in the face of some disciplined bowling from Pearson. The pick of the Pearson bowlers was seamer, Mihlali May, who recorded figures of 4 for 56 and proved a constant threat throughout the innings. In response, Pearson put together a number of handy partnerships, but ultimately the target proved to be a bridge too far for the boys from Port Elizabeth. Kyle Jacobs (74) and Brydon Carse (89) kept Pearson in the hunt for much of their innings, but in the end they were bowled out for 228, as St Andrew’s claimed victory by 43 runs.

Since it’s launch, the Chinesebuilt Geely LC has only been available in a 1,3-litre version, and it has been a tad underpowered when put to the test. But the new Geely LC Cross has just been launched with a 1,5-

litre petrol engine, and that complaint is a thing of the past. With 16 valves and double overhead camshafts, and outputs of 75kW and 136Nm of torque, the new model is some 25% more powerful than the

Kingswood and Grey provide high drama in thrilling tie In a match that will live long in the memories of all who witnessed it, the Kingswood College and Grey College 1st XI cricket sides played out to a dramatic tie on Gain Field in Grahamstown on Saturday. After being sent in to bat by Grey, Kingswood fought their way to 253 for 8 in their 50 overs. Michael Hansel was in sublime form as he scored a terrific 120 off 113 deliveries. For much of their innings it appeared that Kingswood were on track for a much higher total, but outstanding bowl-

Motoring Matters 1,3-litre version. Despite this, the bigger engine also delivers fuel consumption of 7,3 litres per 100 Kms. Priced at R109 900, this little “urban warrior” comes standard with ABS airbrakes, airbags, electric windows and mirrors, remote central locking, audio system, power steering, and air-conditioning. And, with a 3-year/100,000 Km warranty and AA Roadside Assistance, one is not going to get much more bang for your buck anywhere else. The cool GX2 version also has two additional tweeters and a USB socket, front and rear fog lights, and roof rails. Although still a bit limited, there are sufficient dealerships across the country to ensure that owners get the services they need. I think we can expect to see more of these on the road in the future!

ing at the death by Sam Mkumbuzi (3 for 36) kept Grey well in contention. In response, Kingswood had seemingly wrapped things up with Grey on the ropes at 206 for 8. However, Daniel Dutton smashed 34 not out off only 17 balls to take Grey to the brink of victory before Brad Haller (3 for 39) bowled a composed final over, only conceding 7 runs, as Grey finished on 253 for 9. Murray Breetzke was the star for Grey, scoring a patient century before being run out in the penultimate over in match that was a wonderful advertisement for schoolboy cricket.
