It is sometimes confusing for one to draw a line between a beginning and an end. And so often we are caught between not wanting something to come to an end, while at the same time, wanting the new to burst out, and manifest its new promises. We are also wrestling with this emotion here at Pevensey, as we make a turn from 2017 to 2018. A few days and weeks ago, we were  celebrating Christmas and now it is time to let 2018 be, and let her sing her own  song.

Most of our Residents have come back from the holidays, and are so excited to exchange holiday stories. From what we can pick up, they all had great times, and they are ready to participate in the day to day running of their beloved home. We have a number of events looming on the horizon, and naturally, we await these with great anticipation.

  • On the 20th and 21st of January, we will be involved with The N3TC Drak Challenge Canoe Marathon Event, where Residents and staff sell pan cakes, coffee and cold drinks to competitors. It also serves as a fun event for the Residents who get to mingle with people from different parts of South Africa and beyond.
  • February 10th we have a team of Residents who will participate at the Midmar Mile Swimming Event. Practice sessions are already under way.
  • February 13th we have our Swimming Competition vs the school, Underberg School.
  • On February the 18th, we have our Inter House Swimming gala, and we will definitely have some surprise visitors to spice up the event.

These are the stand out events of January/ February. We will issue updates regarding Birthday Lunches, Horse riding and, of course, our Valentine’s Day Disco!

As always, life is a celebration at Pevensey Place. We are always open to making new friendships so if in the area please pop in and say hello to our wonderful family.
