Stellenbosch Municipality have been informed by the National Department of Transport’s (DOT) transfer of the Electronic National Traffic Information System (eNaTIS) to the Road Traffic Management Centre is affecting motorists whose licence discs expired at the end of September 2015 and are renewable by 21 October 2015. This transfer has resulted in motorists not receiving notices to renew their annual motor vehicle licences.

Furthermore, motorists whose licence discs will expire on 31 October 2015 and are renewable by 21 November 2015 will also not be receiving renewal notices. Motorists are urged to check their motor vehicle licence discs displayed on the left hand side of their vehicle’s windscreen.

The Municipality apologises for any inconvenience.

Eskom will be performing emergency maintenance on De Zalze Farmers 2 on Wed 7 Oct 15 from 8AM to 2PM. Please contact Eskom on  086 0037566.

Laventelboer aangewys as Entrepreneur van die Jaar

Deur Stephanie Nieuwoudt

Deur die motorruit sien jy die pers blomme wat sag in die bries wieg. En wanneer jy uit die motor klim, vou die reuk van laventel onmiddellik om jou.

Dis danksy hierdie laventel dat me Ingrid de Waal, laventelboer van Canettevallei in Vlottenburg onlangs deur die Wes-Kaapse regering aangewys is as die Vroue Entrepreneur van die Jaar (in die kommersieel kategorie).
