Your guide to what's happening in and around Harfield Village

Dear Subscriber
If you missed out on the latest newsletters you can see them here.
What’s not to love about this wonderful season - full of light, colour and new life. After the shivering cold and icy mornings, the warmer weather is enveloping our beautiful country. Enjoying sunny days with the odd cold one in between is positively better than the grey, gloomy days of winter past.

Sunshine calls for outdoor fun. Pack a picnic basket, put on your hiking shoes and head on out to have some fun! See our Upcoming Events section for inspiration.
Once again, in this month's newsletter, we have really interesting articles, great recipes from Kim Hofmann and Lyn Staples and local events, as well as several beautiful properties for sale with Norgarb Properties
ANIMAL RESCUE ORGANISATION - THESE BABIES NEED HOMES
Mila is looking for a forever home. She is about 3 - 4 years old, is extremely affectionate and enjoys human company.
Mila is ball obsessed and loves to play. She gets on with other dogs but likes to be "top dog" in the home. She would therefore get on better with older more chilled furry friends. She is also quite happy being an only dog. Fully vaccinated, chipped and sterilised.
Ella (white face) and Georgie are ready for their forever home. These two cute little girls are about 10 weeks old.
They are thriving in foster care and love the company of dogs, cats and kids.
Ella is a bit more of a softie and loves lots of attention.
Georgie is a confident clever girl but loves her cuddles too.
Their mom was medium collie X and Pappa was a traveling man so we reckon they will be medium maybe a bit larger. They are currently being fostered in Rondebosch.
If you think either of these fur kids may fit into your family, please contact Tamsyn 0824117922 or tamsyn@ripsold.co.za

WHAT IS THE MBTI PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT ABOUT?
The MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) is the gold standard of personality assessments given to millions of people each year. Exploring ones personality type is the key starting point for self-discovery, leading to profound understanding of ones own preferences, motivation and behaviour. Insights from this assessment can assist you in making sense of and valuing the differences in other people as well as your own relationships. The knowledge and understanding gained can equip you with useful tools and add value in the realm of interpersonal effectiveness and career satisfaction as well as life in general.
ENTER COMPETITIONS HERE
Please note that the draw takes place on the 8th of October.
Winners will be announced via email as well as on our Facebook page and mentioned again in our next newsletter.
Good Luck!

SUMMER SALADS
Summer is on our doorstep and the perfect season for enjoying salads.
Kim Hoffman says that salads make a wonderful lunch as long as they are balanced with protein, carbohydrate and healthy fat.
FRIENDS OF HARFIELD PARKS
The Friends of Harfield Parks, is an organisation committed to making the public spaces in and around Harfield Village enjoyable to all community members.

HVCID AGM REPORT BACK - CAMERA INITIATIVE
The HVCID AGM was held on Tuesday 18 September and whilst it was well attended, we would have loved to have seen more residents showing their support for safety and security in the Village.

OCTOBER IN THE GARDEN
As we head into the heart of Spring, it's the perfect time to get planting while the ground is fertile from the rain.
Patchwork shares an October's plant list as well as a what's-in-season list.
BRIC-A-BRAC, UNWANTED GOODS APPEAL
Animal Rescue Organisation will gladly accept any donations of your unwanted household goods and bric-a-brac which they sell at their charity shops.
For large donations they can collect, simply contact them on 0213965511 OR feel free to drop goods off at Norgarb Properties in 2nd Avenue.
LOFT CONVERSIONS
Andre Ter Morshuizen, local Norgarb Properties Agent, says converting your loft or attic into a beautiful living space is far more cost effective than a normal extension and will make practical use of this area of your home.
Not only is a loft conversion more affordable and very trendy, but it actually adds value to your property. Andre explains more here.

BEST TIME TO BUY PROPERTY
It makes sense to buy a home rather than to rent, says BetterBond. Simply because being a tenant means you have nothing to show for the amount spent on housing when renting.

FEAR AND THE BRAIN REACTIONS
When the fear is near, the brain reacts. Halloween is fast approaching! Watch out for all things that go bump in the night... and scratch with long fingernails, at your window!
