You might be a weekend warrior or even a professional competitor – but whatever your fitness and training goals are for 2021, make sure that safety is part of your resolutions for the new year.

“The start of a new year is a perfect time to focus on shaking off the holiday kilos and shape up for a new you. There are a few basic tips to follow to help make sure that you can focus all your attention on your training without having to worry about criminal elements,” says Charnel Hattingh, Head of Marketing and Communication for Fidelity ADT.

Green Products for Healthy Youngsters

The most basic argument for choosing organic cleaning products is that they reduce the presence of harsh chemicals in both our own bodies and the natural world. This is particularly important for children whose growing bodies are more prone to absorbing toxins and who stand to inherit a planet suffering the effects of excessive chemical use.

Eco-friendly hygiene can therefore be an investment in our youth which is why IQ Green Solutions partnered with Hope Through Action and Krooked Kings MC in July to donate organic cleaning products for twenty crèches in and around Franschhoek. Each crèche received five litres of IQ Green Disinfectant Solution as well as a monthly bottle of IQ Wound Care Solution.

Mass Vaccination Drive

Franschhoek may soon be the first village in South Africa to have herd immunity from COVID-19. That is the aim of a mass vaccination drive, planned by Franschhoek Wine Valley, which is scheduled to start on 1 September. The campaign has the full support of Western Cape Premier Alan Winde, who recently visited the village.

“It is our ambition for Franschhoek to be first town in SA to be fully vaccinated,” says Ruth McCourt – marketing manager for Franschhoek Wine Valley.  “This is the only way we will get our international tourists back and resuscitate our crippled tourism industry. Victoria Falls achieved herd immunity earlier this year by vaccinating their whole town and are starting to reap the benefits of tourists coming back. This drive will save lives and create jobs in our valley as international visitors will feel safe to once again visit our valley.”
