When Cathy Hommes van Eeden posted a photo of the above ring, with a plea for people to look out for it, she was not expecting such a rapid response. Within 10 minutes she heard from the owners of Spar, who said that one of their staff members had just handed it in.
Safely back now with its owner, who was delighted! The ring was very special as it had been crafted by a friend for their wedding.
Well done to Swellendam Networking and communications - and especially to the honest staff member who handed the ring in.

Save Mrs Gram's Health - eat on her behalf!

Please send your reviews of local restaurants to Swellengram@gmail.com by Monday - if I don't get many more, I will just have to do a lot more eating out - and I really dont need the extra weight!

BAILEY is an unclaimed stray who arrived in a very neglected state. He had mange all over his body which caused his skin to break out in hives and lumps.
He has slowly healed and has proven to be the sweetest boy with a gentle nature. BAILEY loves treats and it will not take long for him to become your best friend. He would be a wonderful companion for someone looking for a low energy puppy to adopt.

If you are interested in adopting, please contact the office on 028 514 2083 for more information or make an appointment to MEET HIM.
