SPAR Eastern Cape and charity organisation Love Story, for the third year running, brought hope and spread festive cheer among some of the impoverished areas in Nelson Mandela Bay this week. Ingredients were donated by SPAR for soup kitchens which were set up in five disadvantaged areas from Monday until today. This year the Festive Feeds took place in Walmer Township and served approximately 100 people. "This is basically just a Christmas meal, to share some love and bring them hope during this season," said Love Story founder Elaine Watson, who added that the donated ingredients were cooked by them and then taken into the communities. As part of the Bags of Blessings initiative, the retail giant donated 250 bags that were sent to families living in poverty that Love Story supports throughout the year. These were also distributed this week and consisted of various non-perishable foods and other items such as maize meal, pasta, toilet paper, soap, samp and canned food. "We've been able to feed hundreds of people over the last two festive seasons," said Watson. "The season is a joy for many, but also a very challenging time for some. "For us to be able to show love and spread hope makes an impact on the lives of the recipients." Watson said SPAR was an "incredibly generous" organisation and always the first to come forward to assist the community. "Having SPAR on board with this initiative has allowed us to touch many people's lives who need it most." SPAR EC sponsorships and events manager Alan Stapleton felt the initiatives were a way to "give back to the community and reach out to those less fortunate". SPAR EC sponsorships assistant Debadene Baatjies said Love Story helped them in identifying the communities most in need of support. "This initiative is very close to our heart because we're giving back and it shows our support as a SPAR brand for our community. "I'd like to say thank you to all our suppliers who donated products and made this . . .

The long hot days of summer have arrived and it’s the perfect opportunity to break out the home bar – especially if you’re entertaining family and friends this holiday season. When it comes time for a few refreshing cocktails there are quick and easy recipes aplenty for any spirit-based tipple. Summer holidays are the time to sit back, relax and let the bitters do the talking. Gin is an essential summer spirit. Light, delicate and floral; adding bitters to gin cocktails highlights the drinks top notes. For instance, the renowned Gin & Tonic is a worldwide favourite that can be enhanced with just a few dashes of bitters - 30ml gin and 60ml tonic over ice, then add a few dashes of aromatic bitters to taste for a more profound flavour. Alternatively, gin lovers can give ‘the original’ two-ingredient Pink Gin classic a go. Splash a few drops of Angostura aromatic bitters into an Old Fashion glass, roll them around until the inside is coated, pour out the excess and pour in the gin… because good taste doesn’t need to be complicated. Generally clean and lean, adding a few splashes of bitters to vodka cocktails gives it a much more discernible flavour. A simple Vodka Martini, made of 60ml vodka and 22ml dry vermouth can be balanced nicely with an added dash of Angostura aromatic bitters. But, if your vodka loving guests are looking for something a little bit more complex try the Moscow Mule - a refreshing mix of vodka, ginger beer and lime with bitters, of course. Are you the kind of cocktail lover that enjoys a little more depth and richness to their drinks? The world’s most popular tequila-based cocktail - the Margarita - consists of 45ml tequila, 45ml fresh lime juice, 30ml simple syrup or triple sec and three dashes of bitters. However, if you’ve had a thousand Margarita’s before and want to try something a little different we have just the serve for you… the Tequila Old Fashioned. A three-ingredient cocktail usually made with whiskey or bourbon; the . . .

Cockroaches Are Annoying, But There Is More to an Infestation Lots of diseases in the world today are caused by pests and cockroaches are no exception. Though at a glance they may seem harmless, studies show that they can cause very serious illnesses. Samantha young a pest expert, talks about the illnesses they cause and how homeowners can stop them from encroaching into their homes. Cape Town South Africa, December 5th, 2018: Cockroaches are some of the most resilient insects which makes them hard to get rid of. With a short maturity period and an ability to survive in almost all climates around the world, their elimination can be a daunting task. With all the facts known about them, however, killing them has become quite necessary, especially in South Africa, where the environment is favorable for them to reproduce widely. It’s hard to imagine, but a few millennia’s ago, cockroaches were appreciated in South Africa especially by the Zulu people. They had grass bowls which they used for eating and for obvious reasons, they couldn’t use water to clean them; instead, they left them in the open for the roaches to eat the food particles in the crevices of the bowls. However, a flashback to today, a battle has been waged against them and most South Africans will kill them on site without thinking twice about it. The temperate climate found in the region provides an ideal breeding ground for cockroaches. According to Samantha Young, a pest expert in Cape Town, finding these cockroaches in clean homes is not uncommon. The German cockroach and the American species are the most common and can be found in most parts. She goes on to add that in the life of one female cockroach, which is about 6 months, hundreds upon hundreds of eggs can be laid. With each breeding cycle producing up to 48 eggs. “Cockroaches are a bit mysterious preferring to lurk in the dark and only coming out to eat when it’s dark”. They will feed on anything from food crumbs that have . . .
