Hello Napier

Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings in Napier are something to look forward to again.

The new Napier market in Sarel Cilliers street is attracting quite a following and creating a lovely buzz in town. If you haven’t been yet – GO!. Dee and Neil from the Red Windmill have beautiful spices available as well as assorted samoosa's (they are so popular, you need to get there early before they sell out!) as well as other spicy eats. Stop off at Frieda's El Gallo stand for hot coffee, pancakes, homemade Turkish delight, baclava and other sweet sensations. Also available at the market– homemade meat pies, cheeses, milktarts, sweets as well as assorted collectables and gifts. The Varsmark vegetable stand means you no longer have to go to Bredasdorp to stock up.

Ivan and Karen have done a great job is creating this village market – let’s all support it and keep it going.

Also on a Saturday morning, just across the road at My Skat, is another 'must do' stop off. Sarah Foyle's herbs, as well as gifts, eats and coffee.

And while in the vicinity, why not stop off at Pascal's of Napier for the best and freshest breakfasts in town.

Saturday 1 October 8.30 – Car-boot sale on the Agri lawns.
Bring your own table, chair, umbrella and whatever 'stuff' you have for sale.

Not sure how many of you are even aware of this, but building is underway to restore and rebuild the condemned pavilion on the Napier cricket grounds, which is owned by the Napier village. Frank Hawkes, amongst others, was instrumental is raising sponsorship and funding for the rebuilding and the first phase has now been completed and includes new bathrooms with showers and a new enclosed deck. Funds need to be raised for the second phase which will hopefully take place in 2017. Contact Frank for more information.

On a more sombre note –we say a sad, final goodbye to one of our Napier residents. Sue Morley, known to most of us in the village, passed away this week - her daughter Sam by her side.

An anti-rhino poaching walk will take place from 9am on 22 Sept and will start at the Struisbaai Library. Each person can decide how far they would like to walk and the walk will officially end at Cape Agulhas. For more info contact 028 435 6078 during office hours.
Join in the fun and dress in black and/or white with a touch of red.

Last Ha Ha:

I just got a photo from a speeding camera through the mail.
I sent it right back – way too expensive and really bad quality.

Breaking wind in a lift is wrong on so many levels!

Q. Why do the French like to eat snails?
A. They can’t stand fast food.

Look forward to hearing from you!!
