As the cornerstone of the Muizenberg community, the Blue Bird Garage Food & Goods Market takes place every Friday night in a beautiful old postal plane hangar on the edge of this urban village. You will find this space filled with a collection of local Artisans, specialty cooks, bakers, producers and Designers. We bring the butcher, the baker, the t shirt maker together under one eclectic, creative, vibey roof.
Handpicked South African wines, craft beer, delicious food, live music from local artists, a creative kids area and great company are all part of the tapestry that makes this a very unique and inviting market experience.
“Our Mothers Our Fathers” – An odd name? Well, most old people are someone’s mother or someone’s father, yet so many are alone with very little support. Many of them are also simply too proud to ask for help and as a consequence the desperation of their circumstances is hidden.
OMOF was a name chosen to remind us all, that these senior citizens are entitled to dignity and compassion. If you know of such a person who may need to be considered as a beneficiary of the OMOF initiative, rest assured the matter will be handled by Ann with great care and empathy.The OMOF Christmas hamper collection for the most deserving old and destitute people in the False Bay area has started!
You can really help make a difference to this special time of year and we are appealing for those who are prepared to donate to please do so early so we can get the hampers ready by the 10th of December but our volunteers will be delivering on Christmas Eve to make the hampers truly special.
We are also adding a wrapped GIFT inside each hamper to also make it just that much more special.
As usual, the Hamper Collection Progress Bars on our website have been reset to zero!
Thanking you in advance for your generosity. To read more and view our progress bars (updated daily) Go to www.OMOF.co.za

Chas Everitt Cape Town South is the first company in South Africa to highlight waterwise properties.
“This step recognises the substantial investment that many sellers have made in their properties with regard to water efficiency as well as independent water sourcing and storage solutions.
These efforts and investments can cost hundreds of thousands of Rands and a mere passing reference in the property description fails to draw sufficient attention to the investment which has gained enormous importance as the drought has become a crisis in our region. This ‘waterwise’ marketing campaign further serves to raise the awareness of the water situation in our region. We are encouraging other real estate businesses to embrace the idea and follow our lead and use the waterwise logo in their marketing.
Sellers and buyers have already responded very positively to this initiative and we are highlighting these properties in our listings on www.CEI.co.za as well as www.CapeTownProperty.com and www.Constantia.co.za

Buying or selling a home as well as moving, can be one of the most stressful experiences in your life, even more so if you are not properly informed, and it is probably one of the most important investments you will make. You need to understand your rights and obligations and learn to take control of the process.
Property and its wealth creating power is not an exact science, but a very complex industry, in which most of us share an interest. Property Power is designed to empower home buyers, home sellers, first-time property investors and owner-builders/renovators with knowledge regarding important aspects of purchasing and selling immovable residential property.
Too many people run into financial difficulty and have to live with disappointments after making hasty decisions and not taking control of their property transactions. Property Power is a magazine (including an interactive PC CD-Rom) in which we cover the most important facts with regard to property transactions as comprehensively as possible, while keeping it simple, user-friendly and easy to read.
If you missed out on the previous editions, don’t despair. Each year, after the Minister of Finance announces the new Budget, we update Property Power and release a new edition. Everything discussed in the previous edition is simply revised and modified to the latest developments, figures and legislation in the market and newly researched material is added.
Property Power is updated and published regularly. You can visit our website at any time to make sure that you have the latest edition and that you are not missing out on any new information, like amendments to certain acts, or changes in the interest rate, budget speech, and so on. We endeavor to update Property Power at least once a year, however sometimes an edition may be relevant for two years.
