It is very important to note that Council has NOT approved any location for the discharging of fireworks โ€“ the setting off of any firework is thus illegal. No person may ever light, ignite or detonate fireworks in any place where animals are present. No person under the age of 16 may purchase fireworks from any retailer or be in the possession of any firework. Any person who wishes to present a fireworks display must apply to the Chief Fire Officer for written authorisation.

This morning, councillors and staff of Stellenbosch Municipality, Cape Winelands District Municipality and @Heart gathered at the Eerste River to celebrate and remember those we have lost to Aids. Roses were released in the river as a symbolic gesture. This week, the world commemorated World Aids Day to remember those we have lost and to encourage everyone to get tested. Knowing your status is very important!

Stellenbosch lies roughly 50 km to the east of Cape Town and is - after the Mother City - the oldest town in South Africa.

The 900 square kilometres municipal area is internationally renowned for its beautiful environment, many places of interest, wine farms, street cafes, restaurants, quality wines, historical buildings and excellent educational institutions.

The major portion of the area is utilised for agriculture (mainly wine production) and it includes the major towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek as well as settlements such as Klapmuts, Koelenhof, Kylemore, Johannesdal, Pniel, Kayamandi, Cloetesville, Ida’s Valley, Jamestown and Raithby.
