WE’RE BACK IN BUSINESS

TALKS are not happening at the Athenaeum on the third Tuesday of a month for the moment.
OUTINGS are
– though only to outdoor places – which means no walking through a stately heritage home!
Sadly but safely, the outings have to be limited, and protocol observed.
So if you are interested in attending, act promptly. You’ll be advised whom to contact via email.

Meanwhile, look over the April – May 2021 newsletter

HOW YOU CAN ”DO SOMETHING” ABOUT THE FIRE …

This is a call for volunteers for manual labour after fire in Jagger Library at University of Cape Town.
The Jagger Library is conducting a salvage operation in respect of the materials in the various basement facilities, and needs volunteers.
The task has to be completed by 11 May, when the construction companies move in.
There are two ‘sessions’ per day, each for 5 hours (with a coffee break).
They can accommodate up to 100 people per session.

The work is physical but not overly demanding. It is heart-warming to connect with a group of UCT supporters – mainly, but not exclusively, staff, students, alumni. It’s well-organised, but relaxed and gesellig.

If you know others who may be interested and available, please pass on the word.
Register online (very simple) at http://www.lib.uct.ac.za/jagger-recovery.
