The Book Lounge: Launch of Arctic Summer by Damon Galgut

In 1912, the SS Birmingham approaches India. On board is Morgan Forster, novelist and man of letters, who is embarking on a journey of discovery. As Morgan stands on deck, the promise of a strange new future begins to take shape before his eyes. The seeds of a story start to gather at the corner of his mind: a sense of impending menace, lust in close confines, under a hot, empty sky. It will be another twelve years, and a second time spent in India, before A Passage to India, E. M. Forster’s great work of literature, is published.
Damon will be in conversation with film director Ross Devenish.

Public Holiday - Freedom Day

On this day in 1994, the first democratic and non-racial national election was held in the country. Freedom Day is celebrated with a great enthusiasm by all the South Africans. Lots of social events occur throughout the country. On this day people pay tributes to all those who sacrificed their lives to gain liberation

VWS Fire and Fynbos Awareness Day

Awareness Day is an important fund raising event for the VWS with 100% of the proceeds assigned directly to VWS operational costs in order to provide training and equipment for members as well as maintaining vehicles for trooping members to and from the fireline. This all helps us to do what we love and believe in – combating wildfires and protecting our valuable water resources.
Most importantly, Awareness Day, aims to raise awareness about the VWS and what we do, through educating the public about wildfires, and their impact on our natural heritage. Awareness Day is a fun day out, with loads of activities for the whole family. Non-stop entertainment for children as they learn about fire, fire safety and firefighting. Fire Truck rides, Tree Climbing and Swings, Pumps and Hoses, Snake Shows, Knox Scanner Treasure Hunt as well as interesting exhibitions are all part of the excitement.  Highlights of the day will be the firefighting demonstration, showing what the VWS does best, as well as full aerial support from a Fire Fighting helicopter.
This year our Fire & Fynbos Awareness Day will again feature a greatly anticipated trail run, the Race for Water!  So put on your trail shoes, challenge your friends and colleagues and come and support our men and women in their Race for Water!  By participating in either the Fireman’s Revenge 14km Trail Run or our Beat the Heat 5km Fun Run you will be supporting a very worthy cause – assisting us in preserving our natural heritage as well as conserving our water catchment areas for future generations!
