“As we approach the end of the year we pause and reflect on the past years challenges and changes made to meet them. At the same time we focus on the festive season and adjust to deal with new challenges that this brings.

We have boosted our security and safety patrols including the dog and handler patrols as well as the 24/7 cleaning programme.

We have tied in with the Law Enforcement Agencies and SAPS, festive season planning as well as that of the City’s Area Cleaning.

At this busy holiday time we appeal to all to remain vigilant and aware of your surrounds taking care of your personal and property safety.

Best wishes for a safe and peaceful Christmas and holiday season and 2019.”

Exploring Wynberg
The Village in and around Wolfe Street is a lovely place to explore many interesting and quaint shops, and restaurants.

Pierre Cronje ~ Wolfe Street, Wynberg Village ~ A lovely place to browse, beautiful handmade furniture.

Block and Chisel ~ Durban Road, Wynberg Village - the converted cottage offers a quiet, unassuming and almost 'cosy' shopping experience. Some lovely ideas.

Wynberg Central

Wynberg Pharmacy ~ Main Road, Wynberg ~ spacious and fun to browse with friendly informative staff. Open until 10 pm it’s the perfect place for that last minute gift.

L. Cohen Outfitters ~ Station Road, Wynberg ~ One of the wonderful old style stores where the customer is King. You will find the perfect gift for the man in your life.

Meander down Main Road
Loads of interesting shops and second hand stores with helpful people full of ideas.

Maynard Mall ~ An interesting shopping centre, offering a variety of retail outlets, frequented by commuters and the surrounding neighbourhood residents.



This spectacular green wooded park has earned the reputation for one of the best-loved outdoor theatre venues in the Cape Region. It offers its patrons both a beautiful park and lake for pre-show picnics and drinks, as well as a unique wooded 700-seater theatre setting.

Cape Town’s annual Shakespeare under the stars has delighted audiences for 62 years but 2019 takes the theatre tradition into a new era with an expanded classical experience called the Maynardville Open-Air Festival. Showcasing a season of symphony, Shakespeare, ballet, comedy and more, the Festival runs from 17 January… Click here for the Festival Programme.



"In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukkah' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukkah!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!"
- Dave Barry T on the 6th June 1966 and just as relevant today.
