Chicken Licken abducted Beloved Dulcet Centre mascot taken

L

ICKEN, the much loved mascot of Dulcet Centre in Main Road, Howick, has been taken in broad daylight! Witnesses to the heinous deed watched in dismay as Licken was scooped up, put in a car and driven off. Licken, A male Cochin, has been part of the centre for the last three years and is known to all, far

and wide. He can be seen strutting around the centre and getting in between everyone’s legs at the auction house, pecking at crumbs from wors rolls and chips. The arrival of Licken at Dulcet Centre has quite a story attached. Rob Wilson, the founder of Midlands Auctions, was outside one day and watched as Licken crossed the busy Main Road.

Unlike some chickens that browse and feed, Licken walked purposefully towards the gate and straight to Mr. Wilson. From that day Licken has been part of the centre, with many folk popping in just to visit him! Licken’s whereabouts has been traced but the centre still awaits his return. Please, if you have Licken, bring him back! A Licken look-alike.

Spate of business break-ins THE latest spate of attempted robberies in Howick businesses occurred on Tuesday night (22nd October) at the White House Centre, when three shops were broken into. Shop owners told Village Talk they suspect the thieves were looking for money, as no goods were taken. The perpetrators broke the windows at Total Woman Beauty & Body Clinic to gain access and broke the window at Hair Elegance, but were unable to get in. The security gate at Alpha Flooring was destroyed and the front door smashed – again nothing was taken and it appears money was the reason for the break-in. Since then Village Talk has received unconfirmed reports of break-ins at other Howick businesses in the CBD.

A Sentimental Journey A fundraising event was held at Howick Community Church in aid of God’s Little Lambs Pre-school. The theme was ‘A Sentimental Journey’. All the old familiar songs with a travel theme were sung, including ‘Slow Boat to China’, ‘Fly me to the Moon’ and ‘I’m leaving on a Jet Plane’ bringing back nostalgic memories. The staff from the school sang the ‘Click Song’ and ‘Singabahamba yo thina kulomhlaba’ – loosely translated to mean we are journeying on this earth with the destination as heaven.

Councillors Column: Report back on water tariffs AT a meeting with the Umgungundlovu District Management and uMngeni Councillors, Pam Passmoor and Moira Grueneberg, the Municipal Manager suggested that they put in a proposal of new tariffs. This was done and their submission has been accepted and ratified by the UMDM council. Domestic water consumers will be afforded a substantial degree of relief. Usage of 20kl per month will now cost R213.30 as opposed to the initial 2013/14 tariffs which charged R258.60 for 20kl. With this reduction UMDM is still able to balance their budget but domestic consumers will pay heavily for usage over 25kl and are encouraged to conserve water as this resource is scarce in South Africa. The average household, even with some watering of the garden or veggie patch uses less than 25kl [25,000 litres] per month. uMngeni 1st Quarter Financial Report

The uMngeni Mayor, Mbali Myeni was upbeat when the 1st quarter financial report was presented to the Executive Committee. She pointed out that all the conditional grants are cash backed, the overdraft is not being used, the creditors have been paid and R4 million has been invested. She thanked the Deputy Mayor and Councillors Scelo Majozi and Pam Passmoor for all their hard work as members of the Interim Finance Committee.

ON Friday 4th October, the undercooked Grey Headed Vultures took on a very focused Rest of the World at the Howick Golf Club. The Grey Headed Vultures, a motley bunch roosting in the various â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ambersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in Howick, were captained by a moulting Brian Collins whilst the Rest of the World were led by young Mo Ted Ling. True to form, the Rest of the World plucked the Vultures again this year, winning by a significant margin. Fortunately there were no serious incidents and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;head countâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at the end of the game indicated that there were only three vultures that required assistance to get off the course. Our sincere thanks to Howick Veterinary Clinic and FreeMe for their assistance in this regard The annual tournament is sponsored by the Harvard House Group and the sum of R4,250 raised on the day was donated to FreeMe in Howick.

Healthy lifestyles tournament

In spite of the blazing heat on 3rd October, the Mooi River Sports Complex was packed to capacity for a healthy lifestyles soccer and netball tournament. The event incorporated several government departments. Seen in the picture is the Mooi River SAPS soccer team with their coaches.

Building some character on the crease

T

HE vagaries of first class cricket were amply illustrated by the senior Inland teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double header against North West at The Oval recently. Having fallen one wicket short of beating the powerful North West side in their CSA three-day match, Inland were outgunned in the one-day encounter on Sunday 13th October. A defiant last-wicket stand of 36 runs by Graham Hume (26) and Attie Maposa (8) helped Inland to a modest 217 in their first innings that was underpinned by SJ Erweeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s valuable knock of 81. But it was the bowling of Inlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ruan Pretorius that

had The Oval abuzz â&#x20AC;&#x201C; known as the Professor, Pienaar smashed through the North West batting line-up with an astounding eight wickets for 31 runs to dismiss the visitors for 105. Pushing for an outright win, Inland declared its second innings at 233 thanks to contributions from Nic Hendrie (86), Brad Moses (32) and Imran Khan (27) and Kyle Nopper (27) to set North West a victory target of 346. To their credit, the visi033 330 2504 tors from Potchefstroom 16 Campbell took up the challenge to Howick produce one of the closest, and most entertaining, run chases in the competition. Telling contributions by the middle order made for a compelling contest with spinner Nipper working hard for his five scalps (5/82) and supported by Attie Maposa (two) and

a wicket each by Tabraiz Shamsi and first innings hero Pretorius. Bad light brought an end to the exciting match with North West needing 14 runs and Inland requiring one wicket to win. The hosts deservedly won the points stakes and currently occupies third spot on the log. The one-day game was a complete reversal with North West dominating both the bowling and batting. Electing to bowl first, some costly drops by Inland allowed North West to post an intimidating 293. The home teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lacklustre batting matched the overcast conditions for Inland to go down by 128 runs. But coach Grant Morgan doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read too much into the result, pointing out that coming to terms with disappointments is part of the game and that the real challenge was for the squad to regroup and face up to the Free State when they met in Bloemfontein the following weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a young, motivated side and they know that have let themselves down, and the only way back is through a commanding performance on the field,â&#x20AC;? he said.
