Anglican church of St Mary, The Virgin, Woodstock, Cape Town, 1984
I had the pleasure of seeing an interesting film at the BP Cinema on the restoration of ancient castles, abbeys and palatial homes in Britain. Restoration is not the correct description of what is being done, for the workmanship being carried out in some cases is a matter of survival of historic ruins. The complete restoration is beyond the realms of possibility in the present depressed economic situation. There came to mind a beautiful little stone church in Lower Main Road, Woodstock, which is in need of tender loving care. The dressed stone of the outside walls is black with the accumulated grime of car exhaust fumes and the smoke of many steam trains over the years. As a Christmas gesture, could not the citizens of Cape Town contribute towards the cleaning of these walls and thus earn the gratitude of the rector and his parish? I , for one, would be happy to make a donation.

When the most famous Cape Corps of all was disbanded after the World War I, it was decided to keep the band as a living memorial to the dead -- and on Sunday it provided the music at the service, then led the old soldiers to the cenotaph.
