Breaking News

After weeks of “waiting for a part from Germany”, on Thursday we witnessed a miracle – both the Market Square/Woolies escalators were working (and all three lifts too!). ‘Twas indeed an Easter Miracle!

Also during the week, these officials were spotted inspecting the Woolies car park – looking at the boomgate, speed-bumps and cleanliness. Since then, some of the speed-bumps have been removed, and the stairwells and nooks and crannies of the car park have been cleaned.
