What’s On At The SUPERSPAR? International Beer Day Today.

International Beer Day Today, 5 August

Yep, today is International Beer Day, a global celebration of beer taking place in pubs, breweries, and backyards all over the world. It’s a day for beer lovers everywhere to raise a toast to our brewers and bartenders and rejoice in the greatness of beer! That it falls on a Friday is not a coincidence. It used to be on a specific date in August every year. Still, quite a few massive International Beer Days fell on a Monday, and it was changed to the first Friday of August every year. 

The Purpose

The purpose of International Beer Day is threefold. Well, there is another world of reasons, but these are three primary reasons for having such a fantastic day.

  • To gather with friends and enjoy the deliciousness that is beer. We all know how good it tastes, but on IBD, we reiterate it, repeat it, and remind each other about how delicious beer is. 
  • To celebrate the dedicated men and women who brew and serve our beer. They’re generally a pretty hardy bunch. Hardy, but skilled. There are teams of beer soldiers toiling in the salt mines to bring you the best beer available today, and we want to celebrate these brave people.  
  • To bring the world together by celebrating the beers of all nations and cultures on this memorable day. It might sound like another reason for a holiday, but it’s not. It is about bringing everyone together, and this is only a good thing in South Africa. 

At TOPS, we’re celebrating along with everyone else, and we have a few fun giveaways and some cool prizes. All Internation Beer Day giveaways will take place on our social media platforms. So find our Facebook Page, track down our Insta handle, discover us on Twitter and keep looking via the hashtag #TOPSbeerday. The giveaway prizes are cooler boxes, Springbok rugby jerseys and free Heineken beer for a year, which is not bad, not bad at all.

Wildside TV Screen Advertising Specials!

Wildside TV Screen Advertising Specials!

It’s that time of year when we renew and offer slots on Wildside TV screens to premium businesses in our village! As you know, our village is growing and more and more people are moving here and opening up which means more competition. This is your opportunity to advertise your services or business on platforms around St Francis.

We have now confirmed our fourth screen which means more exposure to more eyes including the residents and holidaymakers.

The screens are in Build It, Kouga Print, Superspar Village Square and coming to Cape St Francis at the Coastal Convenience store. PLUS, you can pop your business card into the card rack at the Spar where they literally fly off the shelf. Give your business direct access to the traffic in all of these chosen venues!

We are offering an AUGUST BLITZ! Book your spot for R2500 for 4 screens over a 12-month period. The adverts run on a 10-minute loop so the advert gets 6 spots per hour, all day, every day.

The bonus is that you can change your advert whenever you wish (especially if you are running specials) and if you are stuck for design work, we have someone who can assist for an additional nominal fee. If you wish to run a video, you can submit one to us and we will gladly add that in!

Remember, advertising is about being consistent. If you are not in the public domain, you will be forgotten!  From 01 September, the rate increases to R3000 for the year. Book and pay by 31 August to secure this special.

Please feel free to contact  Craig on 082 3764443 for further information and advert specs to secure your spot!


Data Collectors Start Gathering Info For New Valuation Roll

Data Collectors Start Gathering Info For New Valuation Roll

The official Kouga Municipality valuers – DDP Property Valuers as appointed by the municipality – will be collecting preparatory data in Kouga towns from August 1, 2022.

Kouga Executive Mayor, Horatio Hendricks, said the data collection would lay the groundwork for the compilation of the new General Valuation Roll for the period 2022 to 2025.

“Duties of the data collectors will include property inspection and taking of photographs of a property,” said Hendricks. “They might have to enter some houses.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, however, these preparations are important if we are to compile a credible valuation roll.

“They will be wearing identity tags in the intertest of security. However, if someone knocks on your door, and you are not certain if it really is them, we ask that you call our revenue office at 042 200 2200 to verify their identities before allowing them access to your premises.”

Property owners will be informed of the new valuation of their property and will have the opportunity to object should they believe the valuation is incorrect.

The new valuations will determine the worth of a property and influence how much property owners pay for rates from July 2023. Properties will be valued according to their market value as at July 1, 2022.

For more information about the valuation process, contact Julius Hammond at 042 200 2200 or send an email to valuations@kouga.gov.za.
