It’s All in the Timing

Spring Day2 postcard.ai

Cape Malls Beefing Up Security

The safety of shoppers and tenants at malls has once again been highlighted by a spate of brazen robberies in the Western Cape and Gauteng.

Janine Myburgh, president of the Cape Chamber of Commerce and Industry said the uptick in mall robberies and the methods being employed was of great concern for business in the region.

“The knock-on effect is that shoppers become wary of being in malls and restrict the time they spend there or avoid them altogether. Sharing information with one another is essential for companies to stay informed of new techniques and how to protect themselves.”

Simon Colman, underwriting executive at SHA Specialist Underwriters, a liability underwriting management agency, said the importance of comprehensive public liability cover had again been highlighted following the cases of armed robberies at Canal Walk and other centres.

Last week robbers made off with an estimated R1 million worth of Apple products as well at R2m worth of diamonds, rings and watches over the weekend.

On Tuesday, a gang of armed robbers arrived at the High Constantia shopping centre at about 4.30am and held up two security guards at gunpoint and stole women’s clothing as well as the guards’ cellphones before fleeing.

Other places targeted this year include shops at Long Beach Mall, Blue Route Mall, Cape Gate, Tyger Valley Centre, Bayside Mall and Zevenwacht Mall.

Top Constantia Agent

ShanazIt gives me enormous pleasure to report on ConstantiaProperty.co.za that Shanaz Sity of Chas Everitt International has (as of today) had 13 sales in the last 52 days. This is a truly outstanding ’round the clock’ sales marathon, the likes of which stand testimony to sheer stamina as much as it does to Shanaz’s incredible ability to “help people home”.

Two of these houses were not even on the market, but as a consummate professional who knows her area and its residents so well, Shanaz was able to quite simply ‘make it happen’!

While the focus may for some be on the figures, the most critical measure for Shanaz is that every party in every transaction is happy.  Shanaz’s service driven focus is unquestionably at the very foundation of her remarkable success, which is a superb example to every sales person!

Bergvliet High collaborates with feeder schools on Constantia Valley mural project

projectInspired by Canadian artist, Louis Lavoie and his work on murals, Jenni Maurice-Green, Visual Art teacher at Bergvliet High School approached local feeder schools earlier this year asking them to work in collaboration with Bergvliet High School on a mural of the Constantia Valley. Janey Cogan and Claire Larkin, Art teachers at Sweet Valley Primary and Kirstenhof Primary, respectively were quick to jump on board with the project. Their grade 7s joined Bergvliet High’s grade 8 – 10 Art students in painting or colouring one of the 342 tiles which make up the mural.

Ms Maurice-Green said “None of the learners knew what the final puzzle would look like, they were simply instructed to turn their artwork into something they loved about the Constantia Valley, keeping true to the colours and shapes. As you see the final result is lovely and something I would hope even Louis Lavoie would be pleased with”.

Thanks goes to Claire Larkin, Janie Cogan and the enthusiastic young artists from the three participating schools. Also to 1UP for providing the display unit and the Blue Route Mall for allowing us the space.

The Mural will be on display on the top floor in the Blue Route Mall from 25 September 2014 to 2 October 2014.
