We have a legacy of violence in our suburbs that needs healing. How can we do this. Two men, one a Khoi Muslim and the other a white pastor, are desperately working to save the youth of Ocean View. Time is running but they see hope where others see hopelessness. Karen chats about Alice and her research into dementia and Alzheimers and how we need to change our understanding and dealing with those around us who are suffering. Plastics raises its ugly head again and we talk about its impact on the environment. A quick report back on the...Read More
Muizenberg hosted a business event called “Gateway to Muizenberg : Business for Change”. Another business event, networking opportunity or get together? I thought it was just another one. But, what I did learn is that community collaboration is not exclusive but inclusive. Even if there are other initiatives we need to keep working together to build our community. The guest speaker, Steven Harris from 75 Harrington Street, shared some of his experiences in collaborating with other businesses in the Cape Town CBD. He emphasised collaboration and community building to see problems overcome and the community developed both socially and...Read More
We celebrate Nelson Mandela’s birthday as a community in this episode and what a celebration. So many people involved across the greater Muizenberg area and surrounds.

What an encouragement to see people serving just for the...Read More

Chatting to some of the cast before the show was a real experience, catching some of the enthusiasm of unpaid performers. The audience were astounded by the quality of the production and this reflected in their comments at the end of the show. When the lead actor...Read More
We kick off this podcast with a heartwarming story about bees and what better place to have a talk about them than at the Hive in Palmer Road, Muizenberg. Bees sting but if they like you then they don’t. I was amazed at how caring bees are for each other. A sad follow up story is the one about the brutal “Lakeside Butcher” murder which rocked our community 3 years ago. Yolande, who is a former crime reporter, gives us some insight into the final outcome of the trial. Have you heard of bacon trees? I haven’t. There is...Read More
