– June has been a big month for Napier – once again we have
had a very successful Patatfees – a huge thank you to the
Patatfees committee and all who had a part in organizing this
great event. We hosted many people who had never been to
Napier before – AND THEY LOVED IT!
Thanks to all the
Napierians who took the trouble to make scarecrows which
helped make our village so attractive and
big event in June is our having to say farewell to Craigan and
Angela from Suntouched Inn – they have become such a part of
Napier over the past few years that it’s difficult to imagine
them not being here. Angela has done a marvelous job heading
up Agulhas Tourism and has helped put Napier on the map –
thank you Angela!
We wish you both the very best in
Johannesburg and we are
pleased to know that you are NOT selling Suntouched - and that
maybe someday you’ll be back.
it seems as if the issue of the Cell C tower that had
everybody up in arms a year ago has still not been laid to
rest. A new application for consent has been lodged, this time
to be erected on the grounds of the old high school. The
proposed tower will be 60m in height and will tower over it’s
surroundings, affecting the aesthetics of the town, the
environment, property prices of homes in the immediate area as
well as possible health risks to those living in proximity to
the tower. If you feel strongly regarding this issue – contact
the municipal manager, Mr Stevens, and let him know!!
the Napier Natter know what you think and we will include your
comments in the next edition.
thank you, thank you!
