Early, early deadline alerts and what’s open during the holidays

2018-03-28 06:00

THE next round of early deadlines this week: Good Friday is Friday, March 30, and Family Day (Easter Monday) is April 2, which unfortunately means that the printers are closed on those two days.

So advertising deadline for the issue of Wednesday, April 4, is actually tomorrow — Thursday, March 29 at 9 am — ridiculous I know, but as always your co-operation is greatly appreciated.

The school holidays run from March 28 to April 10.

Any photos and reports prior to the holidays will be greatly appreciated.

General reports, sports, community activities, etc. — deadline is Thursday, March 29, at 1 pm — many thanks.

Most smaller retail outlets and banks will be closed on the holidays but supermarkets will be open.

Please note that the Umvoti Municipality offices, library and museum will close at noon on Thursday, March 29, and reopen on Tuesday, April 3. See advertisement on page 3 for full details.

Refuse collections as usual.

In case of any emergency, please contact the 911 call centre at 033 417 2911.

The weather forecast is 24º Celsius with rain for Good Friday, 18º Celsius plus rain on Easter Saturday, 23º Celsius and no rain on Sunday and on Family Day.
