KALK BAY: TRAFFIC PLAN FOR RECKLESS MOTORISTS

Vroom for improvement MONIQUE DUVAL

T

he sound of screeching tyres and speeding vehicles are becoming a common occurrence as motorists brazenly ignore the speed limit along Kalk Bay Main Road. Resident John Silva says since the rehabilitation of the road, the reckless driving has increased. He says he has raised his concerns with the City of Cape Town’s Ghost Squad who have conducted operations in the area. “The first time they came out they recorded 62 traffic violations in a few hours. They came back a month later and recorded 16 motorists overtaking illegally, 16 unlicensed drivers, two disobeying the traffic light and three motorist who failed to indicate,” he says. Silva and his wife experienced a near collision a few weeks ago when a motorist refused to wait for him to turn into his garage and drove into oncoming traffic. “In order to get into our garage we have to wait for

cars to pass and the garage to open. The vehicle behind me waited patiently as the traffic passed and when it was clear I turned. Out of nowhere, another car comes speeding and driving in the wrong direction,” he says. He adds the occupants of the vehicle were inebriated and laughingly apologised before driving off. Silva is concerned about the safety of pedestrians in the area and says if traffic calming measures are not put in place, there would be the “loss of life and limb”. “If you try crossing this road you will be shocked by what you see,” he says. “When approaching the road you look right, left and right again; as you try to cross, a car comes speeding around the bend out of nowhere. We need speed cameras in this area to deter motorists from speeding.” Richard Bosman, the City’s director for Safety and Security, says on their first visit in April, the Ghost Squad recorded 25 motorists disobeying barrier lines, 12 motorists driving on the wrong side of the road, 14 unli-

censed drivers and eight motorists who failed to indicate when changing lanes. He says they also found a vehicle with defective lights and a vehicle which was unroadworthy. “There have been four follow-up operations from the Ghost Highway Unit since the April operation, with a further total of 167 fines issued for various offences. We recorded an average of 41 offences during each operation,” he says. Seven speeding operations have been conducted by the unit between May and August. They have recorded a total of 26 motorists exceeding the speed limit of 60km/h. He says the highest speed recorded was 105km/h. He says the fines issued for these offences are still in circulation and an accurate figure of how many fines have actually been paid could not be given at this time. Bosman says once a request has been made for the erection of permanent speed cameras it will first be investigation by the City’s Camera Review Committee.

“A speed survey is conducted using speed loops and all of the crash statistics for the location will be gathered and studied,” Bosman says. “Crash sites resulting in fatalities or serious injuries over a three-year period will be considered, together with the results of the speed survey.” Brett Herron, the Mayoral Committee member for Transport, says while no formal request for traffic calming measures has been made, the City is reviewing the speed limit to determine whether it would be appropriate to reduce it. “Kalk Bay Main Road is an important arterial in the metropolitan road network and raised calming measures such as speed humps would not be appropriate for the road. Effective speed enforcement is the appropriate solution to a speeding problem on the road,” Herron says. However, Silva says officials should also remember Kalk Bay is a residential area often visited by tourists and stricter measures are needed to deter speeding motorists.

uizenberg residents are gearing up to celebrate the history, development and diversity of the area with the 2014 Muizenberg Festival. The festival, which is set to take place in October next year, is the brainchild of resident Claire Homewood. The idea to host a festival came from the previous street festivals held in Palmer Road from 2009 to 2010. Homewood says the idea is to align the festival with the World Design Capital (WDC) theme Live Design; Transform Life. In aligning with this theme, the festival will focus on the social, cultural, ecological and economic development of the area. “It’s about creating a platform to showcase Muizenberg’s commitment to creative, collaborative, community-led transformation. The Muizenberg Festival will celebrate the people, businesses, organisations, projects and perspectives that are working together to develop our sustainability,” she says. Festival organisers want the community to get involved by presenting ideas and concepts to be showcased at the festival, which will take place at various locations in Muizenberg. Homewood says the festival aims to encourage interaction between diverse population groups, develop ownership and use of the pavilion by the community and activate new collaborative enterprises and projects. “The festival will be created by the community, through the many ideas, events and projects. We can look forward to a genuinely exciting and diverse programme,” she says. “One idea happening is the development of a Made in Muizenberg brand. This will showcase the many products, produce and ideas coming out of Muizenberg. This will

The festival organisers will hold an Open Day on Saturday 14 September at the Muizenberg Pavilion from 14:00 to 17:00. The community is invited to attend the event, which will see the presentation of ideas and have a session where the community can indicate what they would like included in the festival. Open Streets, a citizen-driven initiative which promotes the use and ownership of public streets by the surrounding community, will host a walk-about on the day. Marcela Guerrero Casas explains the walk forms part of the Talking Streets series, where communities spend just over an hour walking through a selected street and raise

concerns or bounce ideas of ways to improve the area. “Here people give their insights into a particular area, share stories and raise concerns. With the planning of the festival, the walk will give those involved a very good look into what should be included in the festival,” Homewood says. With less than 13 months to go before the festival, Homewood says community participation is important in ensuring the festival runs smoothly. “The festival is still in its early stages and needs help, support and participation. We encourage the community to start thinking about how they can use their skills, talents and ideas to make Muizenberg amazing,” she says.

KOMMETJIE: CONTROVERSIAL DEVELOPMENT GETS THE NOD FROM SPELUM

Filling station gets the thumbs up MONIQUE DUVAL

King of Kings 5X2 10 09 13 1CF7FRFE7L.cdr

A

fter a nine-year battle Andre van Heerden, developer of the Sunnyacres Shopping Centre, says he is delighted the proposal to develop a filling station on the corners of Kommetjie and Lekkerwater roads will be going to the City of Cape Town’s full council meeting for approval. Van Heerden says the proposed filling station on erf 4340 was met with resistance by Kommetjie residents, who felt it was “undesirable”, and says the item has appeared on the agenda of the City’s Spatial Planning and Environmental and Land Use Management (Spelum) Committee for several years. “It has been hard to get a recommendation from Spelum and I have spent lots of money and resources to get this development off the ground. I have had to hire lawyers and town planners to assist me and, despite fulfilling all the requirements, the process has been delayed due to objections by Kommetjie residents,” he says. Patrick Dowling of the Kommetjie Residents’ and Ratepayers’ Association (KRRA) says they are not happy with the recommendation and says the association has opposed this and many other developments in the Far South as “cumulatively they threaten many of the unique qualities of this region”. Dowling says one of the original conditions of the rezoning of erf 4340 was that no filling station be built. An earlier application was turned down for environmental reasons. “Traffic in the area is already bad enough and the safety of motorists and pedestrians could be compromised. There are other petrol stations nearby,” he says. Dowling explains the Far South Peninsula Community Forum (FSPCF) has called for a strategic environmental assessment, which will focus on the environmental opportunities and constraints of Clovelly, Noordhoek, Simon’s Town and Scarborough. It should be completed with public participation before new development pro-

posals are approved. Dr Lesley Shackleton of the FSPCF says the City conducted studies and made recommendations that no further development south of Silvermine take place, due to threats to the environment, in the 1990s. “We strongly believe the City should be consistent and follow its own policies, which have been carefully thought through, rather than bending them for (the) benefit of individual developers. This has clearly not happened in this instance,” Shackelton says. According to the Spelum meeting report of Wednesday 14 August the team from Urban Dynamics Western Cape, on behalf of Van Heerden, states the Traffic Impact Assessment (TIA) properly addressed the traffic aspects and said the development would create job opportunities for the residents of Masiphumelele. Committee members agreed to a site visit during peak hour traffic before making a final decision. Spelum chairperson Councillor Christo Kannenberg says the site visit took place on Monday 2 September and the majority of the

committee members felt the proposed filling station was desirable and would not worsen the existing traffic situation. “The City’s traffic engineers advised that, should the existing zoning be implemented, the traffic impact would be greater than that of a service station. They were also satisfied with the mitigation measures proposed, as conditions of approval would be adequate to allow for the service station,” he says. The recommendations made by Spelum will now go to the Mayoral Committee for approval at the next Council meeting. Van Heerden is pleased with Spelum’s recommendation and says he has not yet finalised which petrol company will be running the service station. “The filling station will be accompanied by a convenience store and we have proposals for a food chain takeaway outlet. It has taken us long to just get to this point and now we wait on the final decision from Council. The plan was always to create economic development opportunities for the residents of Masiphumelele and the surrounding areas,” he says.

MASTERCHEF: ‘FISH MAN’ BACK HOME

Steel learns to believe in himself JANA BREYTENBACH

W

ith his distinctive laugh Lakeside resident Jason Steel (23) tells the story how he survived the five weeks in the MasterChef kitchen. “I’m unbelievably proud of myself for making the top five; I really did not expect that,” he says. Last Tuesday Steel became the 12th amateur cook to exit the competition. He competed in the hot auditions in Johannesburg in December, the day he was supposed to attend his graduation. It was a difficult time, because his uncle had died of a sudden heart attack a week before. “My uncle taught me how to fish and a day before my audition I caught a trout. I prepared the trout for the judges and they said it was fantastic. For me that was a sign that I should participate,” he says. Week after week he progressed and earned the nickname “The Fish Man” due to his love for seafood. “I have always had a love for food and wine, so it comes naturally for me,” he says. Steel, who worked at La Colombe at Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate for four years, says he has a special love for the manner in which food is presented on a plate. He has a number of highlights from the recording of the competition, including the five days in Ethiopia, meeting chef Henry Vigar (of La Mouette Restaurant in Sea Point) and one of the first challenges, the breakfast challenge. “I do not have many low-lights, but the first team challenge – where we had to make

pizzas at Maiden’s Cove in Camps Bay – was certainly the worst,” Steel says. “We were completely shattered when we lost.” He says he wishes he could go back to the beginning of the process and tell himself not to doubt his abilities as much. “It was certainly the biggest lesson I learnt: to never doubt myself.” After the recording of the competition Jason returned to Lakeside to relax, after which he started working as a waiter at The Test Kitchen in Woodstock. “It was an interesting time in the culinary world and I plan to be very busy. But, for now,” Steel says “I want to keep on learning.”

CAPENATURE: ‘BABOONS ARE NOT ENDANGERED’

Baboons: cull to limit troops

The City of Cape Town will commence its process for reviewing the 2012 – 2017 five-year plan (IDP) and the drafting of the 2014/15 Budget. This will be the second review of the term of office plan which was approved by Council on 28 May 2012. The 2013/14 IDP and Budget time-schedule outlines the activities that will be followed in drafting the 2014/15 Budget and amended IDP. The aim of reviewing the IDP is to ensure that municipal planning considers the assessment of its performance measurements and the extent that changing circumstances so demand. The public participation activities can be summarised as follows:

hould their numbers increase beyond the capacity of the limited natural area, troops of baboons will be shot dead across the Peninsula. CapeNature director for biodiversity Dr Ernst Baard said last week the Cape Peninsula only has a limited space for baboons. If troops are allowed to get too big, it will lead to the mass euthanasia of entire troops. “I hope we never reach that point; it would be a sad day,” Baard said. The protocol for the euthanasia of baboons in the Peninsula was presented to the City of Cape Town’s Portfolio Committee for Economic, Environmental and Spatial Planning last week. Baard explained to the committee the legal framework within which baboons may be culled. He said when a “situation” with a single troublemaker arises, an intensive process follows before a decision is made to cull. There are laws, rules, regulations and protocol, but if a baboon makes trouble too far in a residential area, he will be put down. “We recognise the important role of

baboons as an ecological component in the Cape Peninsula. Baboons are not an endangered species and their role must be seen in this light,” Baard said. He added that scientific steps jointly by the City, CapeNature and Table Mountain National Parks for a sustainable existence for baboons is on par. The one big problem remains people feeding baboons. “I do not think CapeNature has had any successful prosecution of a person feeding baboons. People do not want to get involved when they have to testify,” Baard said. V Share your views! Starting with the word “Post” SMS your comments to 32516. SMSes cost R1.

Laser light: a case for assault agency touches that other. In this case the force is indirect, and the person who gives occasion to it, is guilty of assault”. An example: “If A prepares a pitfall for B, and B or C falls into it, then they would be guilty of assault at best, ‘Mens Rea’ – a blameworthy state of mind – is essential in assault. Where this mental condition is absent there can be no assault.” A “blameworthy state of mind” was certainly present in this case – as well as the previous one – as any persons who resort to blinding the driver of a vehicle must well know what the consequences of this action could result in; even a charge of attempted murder may carry some weight as the act by the Corsa’s occupants was certainly premeditated and thoughtless. To direct a powerful beam directly to the face of a driver speaks for itself; much the same as pointing a loaded firearm at a defenceless victim who is rendered powerless! A criminal charge can still be preferred if the above definition is anything to go by, now, as well as in the future. Even without a registration number, a criminal charge can be preferred as good investigation can bring the culprit to book; the one who directed the laser beam and his friends who are accessories to an assault they may live to regret. Tony Rozemeyer, Lakeside

I refer to the letter from Arnie Marais (“Laser lights: a call to take action”, People’s Post, 27 August) regarding a laser light directed at him while driving his vehicle in Putter Road, Lakeside by the occupant of a Corsa LDV. This is the second such report in as many weeks in the Far South. It is not clear whether a registration number was obtained, although this is unlikely under the circumstances. Under existing traffic law, no clear legislation exists other than the use of a spotlight or substitution “in such a manner as to interfere with the vision of any person on the road” – or “in such a manner to cause annoyance to any person, whether on a road or not” – which seemingly fits the bill in this instance. But very complex in terms of raising a charge in respect of “substitution”, for example, a laser beam. Where the police may have erred is neglecting to open their law and police manual, where the definition of assault opens a wide legal door, which may well accommodate Arnie’s “laser treatment” at the hands of those very foolish and inconsiderate Corsa (occupants) who could have contributed to another death on our roads by blinding the driver of a vehicle. Under the mantle of assault, let us view the definition of indirect force: “A person may in the cause of the application of force to the body of another, even though he neither himself nor by means of human

People’s Post reader Paul van der Berg writes: “(I) saw this as I was driving to Fish Hoek from Capri. This taxi overtakes me on a solid white line and then stops way over the white line at the traffic lights. Clearly a total disregard for any traffic laws. Something needs to be done before more innocent people get injured or killed by these suicide drivers.” PHOTO:SUPPLIED

PEOPLE'S POST | FALSE BAY Tuesday, 10 September 2013

Inconvenienced I am 82 years old, disabled (leg amputated) and in a wheelchair. My wife and I go to Longbeach Mall for our shopping and other errands – including dining out as other eateries have no wheelchair access – every week. Many times we arrive at the mall only to find all the disabled parking areas are occupied. When we check the cars for disabled parking permits, often no such disc is displayed. This applies to both open air and covered parking areas. Sometimes we even see people getting out of their cars in the disabled areas – no disc and no apparent disability. When we ask why they are disregarding the notice about that parking bay, they give a rude reply and walk away. A number of times I have wheeled over to the manager’s office to report cars parked without disabled discs. The response? The person says: “We will see to it.” Two to three hours later we return to find that car still there, with no sign that anything has been done about it. Other times, as happened again on Friday 16 August about 13:00, the person in the manager’s office just shrugged her shoulders. The signs warn of action to be taken against offenders. Nothing gets done. Offenders know they will get away with it. And I, in my wheelchair, have to be dropped off – holding up cars driving around me, with some risk to myself – so my wife can find parking elsewhere. Management does nothing. Management mocks the disabled. NJ Pretorius, Glencairn Heights Longbeach Mall centre manager Stefan Roodt responds: Longbeach Mall cares for all its customers, including disabled customers and parents with small children who require special parking arrangements. We have 25 disabled parking bays specifically reserved for the disabled and 25 for parents with small children, concentrated at all the entrances of the mall, as well as close to the lift lobby in the basement parking. The control of these designated bays is a daunting task as the selfish acts of noncaring individuals impact on us all. We, together with our Security Contractor and the Customer Assistants, try our best to intercept offenders and request they move to the regular parking bays, but this is frequently met with abuse and rude remarks. As a benchmark, we have closely monitored the use of the bays this past week and have recorded three incidents of abuse. Notices have been placed on the vehicles and we trust this will deter repeat offenders. We are also considering all other legal remedies available to us and will act accordingly. We consider each complaint as serious and we apologise to Mr Pretorius for the unacceptable treatment he received at Longbeach Mall. We strive to improve our service every day and we trust we will be able to show our commitment to resolve this issue by action and not merely by lip service.

A cut above the rest I’d like to thank Cathy, Lawrence and Sigi from Sigi’s Hair Design in Main Road, Fish Hoek for the wonderful service they provided to a friend of mine, who is bed-bound and unable to get to a hair salon to have her hair cut. They went to her home to give her a hairdo, spent time with her and even took her dog out for a walk! This all brought a smile to her face and made her family very grateful for their kind service. It’s good to know we have a business in our area that’s willing to go the extra mile! S Goosen, Clovelly

Thumbs up to medics My family and I would like to extend our sincere thanks to Jeff and Andre of Cape Medical Response. We called them on (the afternoon) of Saturday 24 August, when my 88-year-old father collapsed. Their quick response, caring and professional manner are to be commended. Fortunately all was well in the end. Belinda White, Glencairn Heights

Property Hotel invites guests to go ‘green’ A leading hotel is making huge strides in implementing various “green” initiatives. In a statement, Chris van Zyl, the hotel’s group sustainability manager and horticulturist, has highlighted some essential tips which hotel guests can implement to reduce their carbon footprint and to become as eco-friendly as possible when travelling. “We always encourage our guests to get actively involved and make recommendations where they feel the hotel could do more to reduce the impact it is making on the environment,” says Van Zyl. “Simple acts such as closing hotel room windows when the air conditioner is engaged and reporting any action to management which may negatively impact on the environment – for example, a dripping tap or inefficient lighting and sustainability procedures that are not being followed – are just some of the calls-toaction hotels can encourage among their guests,” he says. He highlights ways in which guests can become involved in doing their bit for the environment. “One of the most effective ways for hotels to save water is to encourage guests to shower instead of bathing. An average fiveminute shower using a water efficient showerhead can use up to eight times less water than a full bath does.” Guests should also be encouraged to follow the hotel’s towel and linen policy when staying at a hotel for longer than one night. The bed linen card in the hotel rooms request that guests indicate which linen should be washed.

“This policy has a positive impact on the laundry done at the hotel as there is a significant reduction of water, energy and detergent usage,” he adds. Van Zyl adds: “When sight-seeing, guests should try to support tour companies which make use of energy-efficient vehicles with an emphasis on higher fuel efficiency, hybrid vehicles which make use of two different energy sources, or public transport for transfers between the airport and their hotel. When leaving their hotel room, hotels should persuade guests not to leave their energy cards in the mechanism, as this will save a great deal on energy as the room is not constantly being heated or cooled when it is vacant.” Van Zyl also feels that wherever possible, guests should support venues which encourage sustainable procurement be it organically grown or local produce. “The Vineyard Hotel & Spa prides itself on its home-grown herbs and vegetables which are used in various dishes,” he says. “Guests should view a hotel as more than simply a place to spend the night. It should be seen as a responsible establishment that actively works to conserve the environment. Guests could also engage with the hotel regarding any sustainable programmes in place with their local community and see whether there are opportunities to become involved in these or offer assistance where this is possible,” says Van Zyl. “By embracing the hotel’s sustainable procedures, guests can play a role in building on the success of the hotel’s initiatives for a sustainable future.”

Essential ABCs of a dedicated estate agent The real test of an estate agent’s ability and dedication is how fully he is involved with the seller, the buyer and the conveyancer after the sale has gone through. The agent should be able to show that he knows the area and its market conditions and if possible that he has operated in that area, that he will advertise through online platforms and in the printed media, that he has a ‘Plan B’ in case no buyer comes forward and that he declares any links, e.g. family ties, to other parties involved. It is not how he markets and sells a property, according to Tony Clarke, managing director of the Rawson Property Group. “As soon as the sale document is signed, the seller will be expected to work through a range of tasks – and it is the estate agent who must ensure that he does this correctly and on time.” Clarke says if the agent does not, it is possible that certain suspensive clauses in the Deed of Sale won’t be met on time – and if a due date is missed, it can make the deal invalid or result in difficult and prolonged delays. Matters such as obtaining a mortgage bond and getting the clearance certificates from specialist contractors certified to check the electrics, the plumbing and the gas installations are some of the tasks referred to. In the case of such technical issues, he says the specialists employed have been known to invent problems so as to be able to rectify them and pump up their bills. A good estate agent will assist with this process and make sure this does not happen. He says it is also important to ensure that the Rates Clearance Certificate is received from the municipality on time. In theory this should be the duty of the conveyancer – but it is the estate agent’s job to keep the conveyancer on track timewise. “Thereafter it is essential to get confirmation from SARS that the transfer duty has been paid and, by liaising with the conveyancer, check that all legal docu-

ments are signed and have been delivered.” Suspensive clauses can be extensive and in some cases four or five other sales and transfers will depend on the one in question, says Clarke. “To allow these to be on hold or even cancelled is just not acceptable.” In the circumstances, the selection of an estate agent is of utmost importance and the seller cannot be too careful in finding the right person. The agent should be able to show that he knows the area and its market conditions and if possible that he has operated in that area, that he will advertise through online platforms and in the printed media, that he has a ‘Plan B’ in case no buyer comes forward and that he declares any links, e.g. family ties, to other parties involved. Clarke says that the “cheapest” are never the best. If an agent is too willing to operate on a cut-throat commission and if he does not at least ask to handle the sale on a sole mandate, Clarke says these are indications that he is probably a second or third league player.

Land reform in South Africa needs to be addressed, but it shouldn’t come at the cost of food security or by breaking up economically efficient enterprises. So says the South African Property Owners Association (Sapoa), whose members comprise 90 percent of the commercial property sector in South Africa. Neil Gopal Sapoa chief executive officer says South Africa needs a robust and balanced debate around land reform. The fact that only 13 percent of land in South Africa is owned by black people must be addressed, he points out. Gopal says only visionary policies and laws will effectively address the societal, economic and political effects of the 1913 Natives Land Act. But, changing land ownership rights in South Africa also impacts on the need to ensure food security. “South Africa must adopt a process to increase land ownership by the formerly disenfranchised that continues to support food security with effective agricultural structures,” says Gopal. Sapoa’s stance on the issue would see formalised property rights necessary for economic success in context of increased globalisation. This would be supported by government-implemented land reform which also trains and guides beneficiaries in social and economic participation during a transition period. “Fair and transparent validation of historic property rights is fundamental to land reform,” says Gopal. But, crop-producing land must be treated sensitively. Only 12 percent of South Africa’s surface area can be used for crop production and high-potential arable land comprises a

mere 22 percent of this. So, breaking up commercially efficient enterprises for land reform poses a danger to food security. “It isn’t enough to simply maintain social and political stability, we rather need to create substantive economic change.” Equally important to formalising land ownership is progressively and positively changing the wealth and income distribution of the South African populace, notes Gopal. Sapoa puts forward that different laws and policies could act as a cohesive, effective foundation to ensure a sustainable land reform process. These include the Expropriation of Property, Restitution of Land Rights Amendment, Property Valuations Bills and Preservation and Preservation of Agricultural Land Policy, among others. However, he says as bills that will define the social, economic and political stability, or instability, of South Africa, these land reform bills shouldn’t be ‘rushed through’ and must be thoroughly debated first, to ensure legal, social, economic and political validity.

SACS come up short LIAM MOSES

T

ygerberg High School thrashed SACS to claim the 45th annual Villager Schools Sevens title at Brookeside on Friday evening. The Villager Sevens sees schools from across Cape Town compete annually. Nearly 30 teams from the city’s top rugby schools entered this year. Tygerberg looked like championship material from the start of the tournament and kicked off their seemingly inevitable march to the final with a 64-0 thrashing of the American International School. The heavy victories continued and the defending champions went on to beat Bergvliet A 46-5 in the second round, the Western Cape Sports School 24-0 in the quarter-finals and ease past Bishops 21-7 in the semis. SACS were not as dominant in the opening rounds and their opening match against JAG Malibu finished in a relatively conservative 19-0 win. They went on to beat Plumstead 52-0 in the second round, edge past Fish Hoek 19-5 in a tough quarter-final and narrowly beat local rivals Rondebosch 24-20 in the semis. The final seemed set to be a battle of attrition, with one of the sides claiming a narrow victory. But in the end Tygerberg ran riot, scoring seven tries to their opponents two, to win 37-14 and claim their second consecutive tournament title. TJ Goddard and Francois Esterhuyzen both claimed two tries for the northern suburbs school, while Wynand Maclachlan, Ivan Kunz and Mike Hale got one try each. SACS responded with tries from Brad Smith and Devon Barnard. Meanwhile, Wynberg Boys’ High School won the plate section of the tournament, scoring a try in sudden extra-time to beat the Tygerberg B team after regular time finished in a draw.

Wynberg aims and shoots for water polo win

LIAM MOSES

The Wynberg Boys’ High School’s under-15 water polo team are intent on reclaiming the Ian Melliar Cup after relinquishing the title to Grey High School last year. Steve Heldzingen, who recently took over as team coach, says his players are aiming for victory despite a disrupted build-up to the annual tournament. “I am very happy with what I have seen so far. I sat them down the other day and asked them where they expected to finish, and I was quite happy with some of the responses,” he says.

“Where they finish is up to them; they need to step up to the mark and do it. A coach can only take you so far. “They are quite self-driven and don’t want to end up behind a rival school like SACS. Motivating them is not difficult. I see some serious drive from these kids. They are very focused when they train.” Wynberg started training mid-July, but the entire under-15 squad has not trained together because of rugby and hockey commitments. The Ian Melliar Cup has been hosted at Wynberg Boys’ since 2007. The hosts won the trophy for the first time in 2011.

Defending champions Grey High won have won the title three times and the Port Elizabeth school will hope to bag second consecutive win. The other Cape Town schools participating this year are Rondebosch Boys’ High School, SACS and Bishops, as well as an invitational side from across the Cape. They will compete against St John’s, St Peter’s, St Stithian’s (all Johannesburg) Afrikaanse Seuns Hoerskool and Pretoria Boys (Pretoria), Westville, Glenwood, Clifton (Durban), Hilton, Maritzburg College (Pietermaritzburg), St Andrew’s (Grahamstown), Paul Roos (Stellenbosch),

Grey College (Bloemfontein) and Pearson (Port Elizabeth). Heldzingen thinks Wynberg’s local rivals will be the toughest opposition in the group stage of the tournament. “We have been grouped with SACS, Westville, Pearson and St Peter’s. SACS are going to be really tough opposition,” he says. “I don’t want anything less than a quarter-final (finish) and, to be honest, I want more – I feel that it’s realistic.” The tournament will take place at Wynberg Boys’ from Thursday 12 to Sunday 15 September.

Runners take on Table Mountain for a greater cause mother died tragically last year. GMB is the most common and aggressive malignant primary brain tumour in humans, with a average survival time of only 15 months. Marshall’s treatment is expected to cost in excess of R100 000. Three teams and one lone ranger will be competing in the Table Mountain Challenge. Fortunately, the stunning views from the trail will serve as motivation to the runners. An additional and more powerful motivating factor for those competing to raise funds for Allan will be the impact that this cause is sure to have on him and his loved ones.

Roy Marshall, Allan’s son who currently lives in the United Kingdom, will be holding a 24-hour tennis marathon simultaneously to assist with fundraising. A raffle is also being held to assist with fundraising. Tickets cost R20 and prizes include a tanzanite pendant, one domestic airline ticket, three bottles of wine, three bottles of champagne, three cases of beer or an autographed Western Province rugby jersey. An auction will also be held. For further information or to purchase raffle tickets email Nicky Lucas on nickylucasct@gmail.com or Nicole Wooldridge on nwooldridge@gmail.com.

Saturday 14 September will see 10 runners tackle 37km of Cape Town’s most arduous terrain in the Crazy Store Table Mountain Challenge, while a team of cyclists covers 80km in a ride around the peninsula. All of this will take place in hopes of raising funds for Allan Marshall, who was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) earlier this year. Marshall is a grandfather to two young granddaughters who live with him, their grandmother and their father. The girls’
