Vaal Community competes to raise funds

One of the potjies that was made on the day

One of the potjies that was made on the day

Vereeniging – 15 October 2012. Matt’s Foundation, a well known non-profit organization in the Vaal, hosted their annual Potjiekos Competition combined with a Garage Sale at the Riviera on Vaal Country Club on Saturday, 13 October 2012. The Riviera on Vaal Country Club sponsored the venue for the day.

The teams’ potjies were judged externally and the winners were announced after a fun filled morning of cooking and competing. The team, Golden Oldies, was given first prize for the overall best potjie. Park Motors Alfa Romeo seized the second spot and also received an additional prize for having the best décor. Team Em-jee received third prize and the fourth prize went to a team called Three men and a lady. The prize for the team with the best spirit on the day went to the Foo-D Fighters and the most disorganized team, the Panty Hose, also received a consolation prize.

Bruno and Lloyd teamed up to provide the cooks and the audience with live entertainment for the day while Tapimanzi Adventures sponsored a variety of inflatables that kept the kids busy for hours on end. In between, competitors and visitors were able to enjoy a draught or two at the beer tent, sponsored by SAB Breweries, and shopaholics were able to catch a few bargains at the garage sale.

The aim of the day was to raise funds to be able to assist in providing for the basic needs of the children of the Vaal community – especially with Christmas soon approaching. Matt’s Foundation’s slogan is to “love the children” and therefore the potjiekos competition and garage sale were held in honour of just that. Many locals jumped in and volunteered to help on the day, including the Riviera on Vaal Hotel who sponsored side salads, fresh bread rolls, cutlery and staff. Matt’s Foundation would like to thank everyone who participated in making the day a great success.

Riviera on Vaal acknowledges Vaal Police

Dumisani Masuku and Sergeant C. van der Berg during the ceremony for Policeman of the Month at Riviera on Vaal

Dumisani Masuku and Sergeant C. van der Berg during the ceremony for Policeman of the Month at Riviera on Vaal

Vereeniging – October 2012. The Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club has rewarded Sergeant C. van der Berg with a Policeman of the Month Award for her achievement in making the most crime arrests for the month of August. Sergeant van der Berg succeeded in making eighteen crime arrests within one month.

A representative from the hotel’s Human Resource team handed a Riviera on Vaal voucher over to van der Berg on Thursday, 4 October, during an intimate awards ceremony which took place at Matthews Terrace Café on the banks of the Vaal River. The voucher includes one night’s stay with breakfast at Matthews Restaurant for her and her partner. Two of her colleagues, Col. M. Roberts and Sergeant G. van Niekerk, were present at the awards ceremony to celebrate her achievement and show their gratitude for her skills and a job well done. As her partner stated, policemen mostly deal with complaints and it is good and refreshing to receive acknowledgement for their service every once in a while.

Sergeant van der Berg has been with the Specialized Unit from the Flying Squad, Vaalrand, for 11 years and is surely one of the members the Police Force and the Vaal Triangle can be proud of.
