Today marked the first day of the 2016 N3TC drOp’ngo2c Supporters Tour. The Tour is designed to give supporters the freedom to experience the Old Mutual joBerg2c from a different perspective.

It was a great start to the nine days, clear sunny skies and wonderful company!

Our supporter’s enjoyed a lovely breakfast catered by Villiers high School, boy oh boy was it delicious, we even had a few riders stopping to have a nibble.

It was great chilling at the supporter zone, the only real ‘battle’ we had was facing the dreaded portable toilets! One of which had an owl pop out, yes you heard me right an owl! We all however survived the portable toilet battled for Day 1!

After a delicious breakfast and cheering for riders as they passed by, we had a stroll down to the floating bridge where riders braved racing across to avoid the ‘dip’ although on a beautiful day like today it wouldn’t have been such a bad thing.

Once the riders reached the finish at Frankfort they were welcomed by the Frankfort Primary pom pom girls which truly made it a great finish! Many of the riders were also able to enjoy a good massage after a hectic day 1 – I am sure this is what got them to the finish J

We hope that the supporters enjoyed day 1 and we are looking forward to what the next 9 days have in store for us.

Have a look into a day in the life of the New Wattled Crane chick rearing facility set to boost conservation of this critically endangered species. This initiative forms part of the our 2029 Legacy Programme that makes up our Touching Lives, corporate social investment (CSI) Programme.

The MMAEP were lucky enough to visit Sibongumbomvu Combined School near Cedara on Wednesday and meet the dynamic Vanessa McKay who started working there 4 weeks ago as the Grade 4, 5, 6 & 7 English teacher and who is radically transforming the school. We also met the inspiring Beth Drennan who volunteers and runs the library at the school and ensures that the learners have access to books on a regular basis and a real appreciation of their value. On this particular day I worked with the Grade 6 & 7's introducing them to the word Biodiversity (and was thrilled when they came up with the words Biosphere and Bio-fuels) we looked at the concept of trees as habitats and practiced some 'genius' techniques with quiet time and breathing exercises. We read 'The Lorax' by Dr. Seuss and then skipped outside to plant a Celtis Africana or White Stinkwood near the the tap run-off. The younger children danced and sang and blew loving kisses to the tree! In the meantime some big lads were fixing the fence with extra fencing I had brought to the school. What a positive day! The school is planning on becoming an WESSA Eco-School next year and many thanks are due to the Worlds View Conservancy and the Midlands Conservancies Forum for arranging this visit.

Hope you do too.

 

The Urban Agri Forum meeting in PMB held recently welcomed the Mpop Permaculture Queens with great enthusiasm "We are waiting for you!" they said. Sthembile had made spinach lasagne and carrot cake for all to taste along with homemade cordial, and they were really impressed. Penz did a powerpoint presentation about MCG and everyone shared gardening tips as they toured the gardens that Paul Duncan had designed.

Remember, if you are travelling please be prepared for the possibility of snow. c

The snow will be visible soon! From Wednesday, late afternoon and evening, we should experience more light snow fall on the very high mountain ranges of the WC as the third frontal system arrives. The snow fall will continue to intensify over the mountains of the WC throughout Thursday, with as much as 20cm expected for Matroosberg. The freezing level will drop down to 1200m in places, with widespread snow expected over most of the high lying areas of the SWC and into the Southern parts of the Northern Cape by Thursday.

At the same time, the cold front will extend eastwards, dropping snow on most of the ranges as it goes. By Thursday afternoon, light snow is expected over some regions in the Karoo, the Southern parts of the NC and all the coastal mountain ranges from Hermanus to Cape St.Francis, as well as inland regions of the Eastern Cape. By late Thursday night, early Friday morning, falls are possible in the Southern Free State, the Eastern parts of the Eastern Cape, the Eastern Cape Drakensberg and many parts of Lesotho. There still seem to be a strong possibility that snow in the Free State could extend as far as Bloemfontein on Friday.

There is likely to be snow in the KZN Drakensberg and nearby midlands areas by Friday morning. Isolated falls are anticipated to continue through Friday in the EC, Lesotho, KZN, and even some possibilities into Saturday morning. http://snowreport.co.za/snow-forecast-update-27-30-august-2014/
