Hi there

We trust that you have had a great week and looking forward to a wonderful weekend. Although it will be a wet one, there is plenty to do to keep busy. Check out my Editor's Top 5 Events of the Week and also ShowMe’s Top 8 Winter Activities in the Winelands for some great ideas. 

Last week, the Coca Cola Under 18 Craven Week took place in Durban. The Western Province Team finished the week unbeaten and boasted 9 players from Paarl Gimnasium and 12 players from Paarl Boys' High. While these players played as a team last week they will soon go up against each other in the 2016 Interschools which takes place on the 6th of August. Read our article below for more on this and about the SA Schools Team which will be participating in the U19 International Series next month - Paarl schools are very well represented. Well done everybody, you make us all proud! 

For Mandela Day several local establishments, including The Grande Roche Hotel, Laborie Wines and Nashua Paarl & WC went the extra mile to help those who are less fortunate. We salute these local businesses and encourage everyone to come on board with this wonderful initiative next year. 

For some great special deals running in the Winelands, including movie discounts, pizzas, home-cooked meals, beauty treatments and more, take a look at our Special Offers in the Winelands. 

This weekend we can expect some rain, which is great news for our local dam levels. The recent rains have improved levels slightly but they are still far from where they should be. Read more here.

Stay informed on the latest weather by checking out our ShowMe weather forecast, 7-day summary and coming 24-hours detailed by the hour, updated hour by hour. 

If you would like any changes made or specials added to your listing or if you would like us to promote your events on our website please contact me at kerryvdw@showme.co.za. And anyway, perhaps just send me a quick email telling me how you like our regular weekly articles and newsletters and, if you like, suggest other things that would interest you. I would love to hear from you – call me Kerry.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Kerry
