Shadow column

2016-04-27 06:00

THE Greytown Gazette publishes a Shadow Column at the end of each month to list events to come throughout the year. The objective is to notify the public of what events are scheduled to take place, or about to, in order to avoid, as far as possible, “double dating” - that is, two events on the same day which could create problems not only for the organisers, but also for the public. An appeal therefore goes out to all schools, churches, NGOs, sports bodies, clubs, etc., to submit dates and event details to the Greytown Gazette for publication as soon as possible.

How much food do you need to concentrate?

We have been taught that we need three meals a day in order to make it through the day and while most of us indulge in more than our fair share there is a large portion of South Africans who are living off barely enough to sustain them.
