The City of Cape Town is embarking on the next phase of its ambitious ceiling retrofit project which aims to warm up old State-subsidised houses which were previously constructed without ceilings. R60 million is earmarked for this phase.

To date, some 4 500 ceilings have been installed across the metro at a cost of approximately R83 million. This has also included the fixing of roof leaks and the installation of safer ceiling lighting.

‘Earlier this week, I went to visit some of our beneficiaries in Vrygrond where we’ve spend about R26,2 million on the completion of 1 250 ceilings. One of our aims with this project was to warm up these homes and, from the feedback, it seems that this has been accomplished.

Cape Town, 18 August 2016 – Having cemented its place as one of the most popular and prestigious marathons on the African continent, considered the ‘home’ of global distance running, organisers have confirmed another world-class international line-up for the annual Sanlam Cape Town Marathon.

The weekend road running festival will again be highlighted by the 42.2km contest in the Mother City on 18 September, 2016.

With athletes from Africa continuing to dominate the international marathon racing circuit, by winning the majority of major global marathons, the Sanlam Cape Town Marathon will again give top performers from across the continent the opportunity to shine on African soil.

The elite fields for the men’s and women’s races will be packed with foreign and South African stars, with the organisers announcing an international line-up which is even bigger and better than that revealed for the 2015 race, which was won by Kenyans Shadrack Kemboi (2:11:41) and Isabella Ochichi (2:30:20), with Kemboi already indicating his intention to break the course record this September after having run a 67/ 64 split last year.

The City of Cape Town’s poverty alleviation programme supports more than a hundred food gardens across the metro – many thriving because of the commitment of the elderly. Read more below:

The City’s Poverty Alleviation Programme supported 114 food gardens in the last financial year of which 86 were community gardens and 28 were gardens being run at City-owned early childhood development centres across the metropole.

One of the highlights of the past year’s efforts was the establishment and support that was provided to bigger food gardens that are able to produce vegetables on a larger scale, thus improving the odds of sustainability. These gardens were able to support a considerable number of people and income was also generated from the sale of produce. Examples of successful big gardens include Inkwenkwezi in Philippi, Masipile in Khayelitsha, Kleinberg in Ocean View and the Scottsdene Youth Centre in Kraaifontein. Continue reading
