Ajax Cape Town are delighted to have acquired the services of Ashley Hartog until the end on the 2015/16 Absa Premiership season.

Hartog started training with the Urban Warriors’ PSL side two weeks ago and made a big impression on head coach Roger De Sa and his technical team.

His massive work ethic, ability on the ball and professionalism was a key factor for De Sa. The vastly experienced Hartog previously played at club’s like FC Fortune, Sint Truidense (Belgium), SuperSport United and Maritzburg United among others.

The 33-year-old midfi elder has expressed his delight in signing with Ajax Cape Town, stating that he is highly impressed with the performance of the young players at the club.

“It’s been nice to train with these players for the two weeks before signing, seeing that I know most of the players here which made it very easy for me to fi t in. It’s very exciting to actually sign a contract with Ajax Cape Town because I was here before and it didn’t work out. To sign here at my age is a big thing for me. The team is doing great with so many young players, even the recent CAF trip to Angola had a lot of youngsters which is great to see. For a more experienced player to come in and settle in with them is also a great feeling,” commented Hartog. Continue reading

With the help of the communities of Woodstock and District Six, an Integrated Management Framework (IMF) for Trafalgar Park has been developed which will help to drive the vision for the beautification, landscaping and heritage upgrades of the entire park. Read more below:

Trafalgar Park was formally established in 1905 for the residents of District Six and was then known as the East End Plantation.

During the early decades of the 20th century, this 3 ha park consisted of a garden with flower beds and a rose garden, similar to the Company’s Garden during the same period. The southern extension of the park was covered in pine trees, which extended across the lower slopes of Table Mountain. The park also contains the French Central Redoubt (fort) which was declared a National Monument in 1968 and which has been upgraded. Continue reading

STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S EXECUTIVE MAYOR, PATRICIA DE LILLE

The City’s Executive Mayor, Patricia de Lille, joined Expanded Public Works Programme workers at the Stodels Nursery in Kenilworth today to encourage customers to work with the City and help save water.

We live in a water-scarce country with the harsh effects of climate change already being felt.

Because the City’s dam levels are lower than the norm for this time of year, the City of Cape Town implemented Level 2 restrictions (20% savings) to preserve the long-term sustainability of this resource.

As of 1 January 2016, customers are being charged according to a tariff designed to be revenue-neutral when applied to the 10% reduced consumption levels.

In other words, if the customer reduces their consumption by 10%, their bill should remain at a similar rand value. Continue reading
