2017: Done and dusted

2017-12-19 06:00

As the festive season is upon us, and as the work year closes, it is commonplace to reminisce and look back on the year that was.

An overall tragic year with 61 children murdered in a mere few months carried in all major headlines and the drought crisis being the talk of the town for months now.

On a positive note talent in the Western Cape shone locally and on the world stage as the province is home to Miss Universe, Demi-Leigh Nel Peters, Miss SA Adè van Heerden, Idols SA winner Paxton Fielies, The Voice SA winner Craig Lucas, SA’s Got Talent winner Anecnote and more recently SA Hip Hop Awards Lyricist of the Year Youngsta CPT, among others.

And as we put the 49th and final edition for the year on the streets today, I am reminded of many amazing events, initiatives and stories that we have covered and been a part of this year.

This was the first year that People’s Post took on a year-long charity drive, focusing on various topics every month. We also brought home some awards. And while we all take a break from print, be sure that we will continue to serve the communities in the new year, bringing you hyper-local news, exciting content and telling it as it is.

Until next year
