LinkUp Western Cape

3. Editor’s Note

LINDYHi there fellow LinkUp friends and colleagues,

It is indeed wonderful that the winter rains have arrived.  It is with a sad heart that we say a fond farewell to Dr Benita Perch, who is moving on to a new, exciting venture. At the same time, we would also like to say a warm welcome to Dr Melissa Brown – our new resident Naturopath with a keen interest in women’s health, weight loss and anti-aging.

WE HAVE A WINNER – Michelle Ronne of Kirstenhof has won a gift pack of organic wine from Stellar Winery.  Congratulations Michelle!

Keep an eye out for the next competition to win a gift pack of organic wine from Stellar Winery.

Our warm prayers go out to all the people in Japan & New Zealand.

Let’s add ALL our voices to NO FRACKING IN THE KAROO!  Sign the petition “Stop Fracking in the Karoo” link:–if-gte-mso-9xml-wworddocument-wviewnormalwview-wzoom0wzoom-wpunctuationkerning/

We hope you have by now got all your winter woollies and warm blankets out and remember to provide any spare food, tins, blankets and any pet items to “Tears”, “Pupp” & “Darg” so all the animals they rescue can be warm, fed and dry too!

Hmmmmm, yummy casseroles, delicious soup and hot chocolate,… We love winter!
