See Shakespeare’s well-known tale of passion, love and jealousy, Othello, come to life at Wynberg’s beloved outdoor venue.
Ease into the first months of the new year with a bit of The Bard in the magnificent green expanse of the Maynardville Open-air Theatre, which is once again presenting its popular annual Shakespeare in the Park productions. This time around, passion, love and betrayal take centre stage in the local production of Othello, which runs from 26 January to 23 February 2016.
History claims that Othello was inspired by and based on Un Capitano Moro (A Moorish Captain), a short story written by famed Italian novelist and poet Cinthio.
They hope their proposal would be the start to get the youth to engage in more positive activities in the community.
Mohammed Hassan, Sameer Omer and Nazeer Ramjam have started a group called Joint Skate Collective. They are determined to see their dream become a reality and are putting all their free energy into making their plan a success.
“I have been skating for about ten years and over the years my love for the sport has grown immensely. I am glad that there are so many other young people who share my hobby,” Omer says.
With a Hospitality degree in his pocket Omer gave up the opportunity to further his career to focus on youth development in his community by teaching children about skateboarding.Read More »Youth Plan Skate Park in Wynberg

SANParks is undertaking a survey of the Cape Rain Frog and is asking for residents help to better understand the densities and distribution of this rare and special frog in residential areas.
One lucky person who completes the rain frog survey before 1 August 2015, will win this lovely book about Southern African frogs (value R398)!
Have you seen or heard these frogs in your garden or when walking along the green belt, or in parks or public open spaces?
SANParks and the Environmental Resources Management of Cape Town desperately need to know where these frogs live in Wynberg!
Found in only two areas
The Cape Rain Frog (Breviceps gibbosus) is endemic to the Western Cape: it was the FIRST frog from Africa to be described by naturalists.
But today the species is considered near threatened: the Cape Rain Frog occurs in only two populations worldwide – one of which is the Cape Peninsula (the other is the Cederberg/Groot Winterhoek).
How to recognize a Cape Rain Frog
Cape Rain Frogs are burrowers found on sloping, sandy or loamy, well-drained soils. The male calls during the mating season, from late April into spring, by inflating his vocal sac. The call is a long, strongly pulsed squawk or croak.
Listen to the Cape Rain Frog:
From above, the skin is a darker brown and the eyes are dark and small. The face is flat with a narrow downturned mouth. The skin of the underside is a mottled brown on cream colour, and is coarsely granular, especially on the throat of males.Read More »Help Find the Cape Rain Frog
