PRA MEMBERSHIP FEES FOR 2017 – NOW DUE

 

Thank you if you’ve paid your 2017 fees in December.  PRA membership fees for 2017 have remained unchanged at R500 (R250 for pensioners) per annum and are now due. Prompt payment will ensure that our sub-committees can continue with their initiatives. 

Please note:

  • If you are a paying member of SafeParkview: At the full monthly rate R720, a contribution of R30 per month per household is made by SafeParkview to the Residents’ Association. However, this R30 is not enough to sustain all the initiatives the PRA undertakes throughout the year, so we appeal to all residents to pay their R500 PRA fees, or make a contribution over and above the amount SafeParkview remits on your behalf.
  • If you pay for the bike patrol, your SafeParkview membership does not include a contribution to the PRA.

 

Our banking details are: Parkview Residents Association, First National Bank, Rosebank (253305), Current account – 50332119813. Please email info@parkview.org.za if you’d like acknowledgement. In order to track payments, please indicate surname and physical address on your EFT.

PARKVIEW SCHOOLS CELEBRATE THEIR CENTENARY

 

Cllr Bridget Steer is appealing to all residents and homeowners to build (buildings/alterations/additions/retaining walls etc) responsibly. According to the terms of the National Building Regulations Act 103/1977 you need to submit in writing, your intention to commence building work - this includes submitting plans and obtaining hoarding permits to store materials on pavements. Rubble needs to be contained and residents are encouraged to use skips, rather than leave the rubble, sand, stones etc on the pavements to clog up the storm water drains when it rains. This also ensures that the rubble will also be disposed of responsibly, and not just dumped.  The Building Inspector for our Ward is Jan Van Eden and you can contact him at  janvane@joburg.org.za / 083 450 3012 / 0117610341; and  the chief Building Inspector is Lebo Mdhlulli - lebomd@joburg.org.za 083 450 2949/011 761 0472.  If you have a home that is older than 60 years old, please email info@parkview.org.za and we will send you additional info that is relevant.

CLASSICAL CONCERT AT ST FRANCIS ANGLICAN CHURCH

 

As part of the Mozart Festival, we are hosting The Casal Quartet and Han Jonkers on Tuesday 31st January at 7.30 pm.   The Casal Quartet is a classical string quartet from Switzerland, founded in 1996 by students of the Carmina and Alban Berg Quartet . It introduces classical music from the 17th century to the present.

The Dutch guitarist Han Jonkers studied guitar with Hans-Lutz Niessen at the Maastricht College of Music. A scholarship made it possible for him to study for several years with Oscar Ghiglia at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy, where he was awarded the "Diploma di Merito." Further studies followed at the Basel Academy of Music with Konrad Ragossnig and Oscar Ghiglia, where he also graduated with a soloist's diploma.
