This week’s news


Editorial November 2015

Quite a few locals witnessed the white light that aimed for Baviaans and more of us heard the very loud noise a few weeks ago.  Whether it was space rubble or a meteor, no one knows, but I think that made the earth move faster as wow, can it really be the end of November?

Yes it is, and this time is the highlight of the year for many to be on their annual holiday, and for us locals to put our best foot forward for our visitors.  Most importantly, we all worked hard to put together a nice events calendar for all tastes – from art to food, music to sport, markets and festivals.

The events calendar will be updated as we go, so please keep an eye on it.  It will be nice to see familiar faces again!
