AS prices soar and unemployment escalates, more and more people are finding themselves battling to find a means to feed themselves and their families. To assist those in need, the All Souls Seva Association has launched a feeding project, â€˜Food for all soulsâ€™, which embraces the whole Howick community. (Village Talk 6th September). When someone approaches, or is referred to them, a proper background check is done to ensure they are eligible for assistance. Chantal de Beer is a single mother with two young boys (aged 6 years and 8 months) to support and feed. She has walked Howick in search of a job, with no success. Last week temporary relief was brought to this family in the form of a food combo, delivered to them by representatives of the All Souls Seva Assocation. The Association would like to thank the fol-
lowing businesses who assisted in this particular case: G&S Hardware; Nickeeâ€™s Furnishers; Howick Meat Centre. Chantal is also desperate to find accommodation as she has now become displaced. If anyone can help, please contact Janis Holmes (082 829 2768) or Eugene Visser (033-330 5114 or 084 703 7530). From the 1st October, there will be a fully operational office in Rangeview Road, Howick West (next to Howick West Primary), where donations can be dropped off. However, for those who find it more convenient, any donations may also be left at the Village Talk office at 3b Market Street, clearly marked for All Souls. If you would like more information about this project or you are able to help in any way, please contact Romeo Sewdan on 033330 6574 or 072 586 3403.

VILLAGE TALK, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20, 2013
ESKOM has applied to Nersa for 16% increases in their tariffs for the next five years, which in effect means doubling what you will spend on electricity in five years time. Heating water accounts for about 40% of your electricity usage. A normal 150 litre geyser uses around R6.00 worth of electricity per day, and that is just standing there and not being used. Have a bath or shower it is going to cost you more. In five years that R6.00 becomes R12.00. Newtech Innovations, that specialises in solar water heating, at 58 Main Street, Howick, can help! Solar water heating should save about 80% of your geyser’s electrical consumpition. To convert a conventional 150 litre geyser to a solar water geyser costs around R9000.00 and at current Eskom tariffs will pay for itself in three years, from your savings. In five years you will not be paying R12.00 per day to heat water, so Eskom’s increase will have very little effect on your Eskom account. If Eskom doubles their price and you halve your consumption, you will be paying a similar amount for electricity as you are now, barring standing charges.
In Howick , Mother Nature provides us with 4.94Kw hours per square meter of collecter, per day, for free. In Rands that means R4.94 Kw per day and in five years time, that will be R9.88 which equals R296.40 per month. R9000.00 in the bank will earn you R450.00 per year if you are very lucky, less tax. R9500 on your roof will save you about R2300 per year, Tax Free and in five years R5000 per year Tax Free! Put your money on the roof. We also stock in line heaters and Eco taps. These devices provide instant hot water without needing an electric geyser. Although they do use electricity, it is only powered when you need hot water. Where you save here, is that you do not suffer the heat loss from your geyser. You may have read my previous article about the heat losses. PLASTI-LOCK FLOORING. Plasti-lock flooring is a hard wearing domestic or industrial floor covering. The flooring fits together like a jigsaw puzzle and is quickly installed with no mess. Generally speaking it installed price is less that that of ceramic tiles and carpets.

HILTON BOWLING CLUB THIS past week was a fairly quiet one at our club. Activity has slowed down ahead of the Spring closing, and there are no club competitions in progress. We will be playing for the Queen’s Cup this Saturday. In 1958, barely two years after the club was born, two anonymous country members donated this trophy to be played for on “Boxing Day” each year. Originally it was between teams of four, but with fluctuating membership it was found that the trips format worked best. When the Christmas Cup was introduced a few years later, the Queen’s Cup was
