Casual Day and Cheshire Home Summerstrand

It is time for Casual Day again and Cheshire Home Summerstrand is one of the many participating NGO’s in PE. This day is not only a chance for the community at  large to become aware of disabled people but it also gives those caring for disabled people the chance to raise some much needed funds for the support, care, opportunity and love we offer them. Cheshire Home Summerstrand has been offering support and care to disabled people for over 37 years. Of every R10 sticker sold for Casual Day,  they get R4. The balance goes into a national fund for the support of disability. The funds raised will be for the direct benefit of the 54 disabled adults and 23 disabled children of its outreach project “Khaya Cheshire“.

water crisis continues…

Although the NMBM JOC Centre confirmed that the entire Metro would have water last night, the crisis is not resolved and residents for the most part are still sitting without water. In Summerstrand, 2 reservoirs are supplying Summerstrand, one of which is for the bottom part along Marine Drive (water is running well) and the other which is currently struggling to supply water, affecting the top area of Summerstrand above Brighton Drive, including Gomery Area, and above Strandfontein Rd.

Information conveyed from our counsellors:
– There will be a water-tank truck at the Mercado Centre – Summerbreezz Spar

High occurrence of “Bluebottle” on our beaches

The commonly-known “bluebottle”, also known as the “Portuguese man-o-war”, or  physalia physalis is not a jellyfish but a species of siphonophores made up of a colony of four kinds of polyps. The bluebottle has many long tentacles that, if stung by one, can cause excruciating pain and threaten the safety of bathers.The “bluish” little balloon has occurred often this year on our beaches and it it surprising that still many bathers are unaware of its nefast effects….
IF STUNG, WHAT TO DO…. Depending on the coverage of the stings and the person’s sensitivity, it is best to constantly monitor for an allergic reaction and shock such as severe pain, high swelling, breathing problems, or difficulty swallowing. In this case consult a doctor immediately.Lemon or lime juice and vinegar SPRINKLING on the wound have been found to alleviate pain and swelling.
If you’re at the beach, using a shell or credit card to scrape away the stinging cells will work, NOT your hands and fingers as this will results in you also getting stung.

To assist with pain relief, pain relievers can be used

Water tariffs

Stepped tariffs remain, and residents are allowed to use hose-pipes and sprinklers to water their gardens ONLY BETWEEN 16:00 and 22:00 daily.

The metro has taken the decision that stepped tariffs will remain in place to encourage users to remain frugal with their water comsumption.
