Some of my favourite stories this week are the Heritage day celebrations hosted by Ray Nkonyeni (what a lovely spirit of unity!) and the very special message from “Tannie Annie” who contacted us, saying she just wants to send out a big thank you to all of the people in Port Shepstone. This kind of positivity makes us all feel so good to be part of this community and makes our work as journalists and editors all the more rewarding.

Another positive story is the revamp of The Block which is getting underway and which promises economic growth and ease of access to fisherman and other beachgoers. It will be exciting to see the finished product.

The Ugu Film Festival was a huge hit, and we definitely need more events like this to support creatives. Storytelling through film is so important for giving people a voice and sharing information.

A very happy Spring break to scholars, and to all our motorists out there remember to fill up this weekend!

Happy Reading.
