Matrics did town proud

The Rep - - NEWS -

The fes­tive sea­son is at an end and in Stutterheim that means the town goes back to be­ing on ten­ter­hooks as we await ei­ther the clean­ing and re­newal of our town or the resur­gence of vi­o­lent protests that have plagued our ex­is­tence over the past sev­eral months.

The vast ma­jor­ity of the agri­cul­tural com­mu­nity con­tin­ues to hope and pray for rain. As one lo­cal farmer said, “There are streams and springs that are dry­ing out for the first time in liv­ing mem­ory – some 150-odd years!”

As wa­ter be­comes scarcer, more and more peo­ple are hav­ing to trans­port wa­ter for their needs.

How­ever, not all is doom and gloom. On Fri­day, Jan­uary 4, the ma­tric re­sults for 2018 were pub­lished. Stutterheim High is proud of the ma­tric class which pro­duced a 93% pass rate. Spe­cial con­grat­u­la­tions must go to all those who re­ceived dis­tinc­tions in the var­i­ous sub­jects.

The pop­u­lar cof­fee and trin­ket shop Kelly’s has re­cently re­branded it­self as the Lit­tle Vin­tage Café, with all of the best of the old es­tab­lish­ment be­ing pre­served in its new in­car­na­tion.

The Lit­tle Vin­tage Café is a charm­ing vin­tage-style café on the edge of Stutterheim, spe­cial­is­ing in quick, de­li­cious home-style cook­ing.

We are very for­tu­nate that our town is so blessed with en­ter­pris­ing and cre­ative cooks and bak­ers.
