Revamping About to Strike in Gallo Manor / Morningside
The next centre to catch the dreaded revamping disease looks likely to be
Morning Glen Mall.
The Spur restaurant is closing at the end of this month: Get in fast if you want
a meal!. Foto First is closing, though it is not clear when. Rumour claims the
same about Cardies but since we have not yet found them open, we have not been
able to verify. We asked the centre manager at Broll for confirmation.
Typically, she hasn't bothered to reply, even though Megaplex is the only website in the
universe with a listing of the centre's shops. Manor Pharmacy says they are
staying open for the immediate future. Pick 'n Pay has no plans to close
Thank you, Jane, for the tip!

Restaurant Reviews by Judith Back to top
**** Silver Pine Spur, Upper Level, Morning Glen Shopping Centre
With news that the Spur is closing at the end of February (verified at the
restaurant), we hastened to have a last meal there. I ordered a rare rump
steak with spinach, my partner a medium sirloin with well done chips. Both
meals were excellent as was the wine. My partner felt his steak was more
medium-rare than medium, but still good. As usual the service was good: Staff
were feeling shattered but bearing up well under the immanent closure, the
reason for which we were unable to establish, as the restaurant was well

***** Ocean Basket, Morningview Shopping Centre, 10 South Road
This is becoming one of our favourite restaurants because of the friendly
service and great food! This time our waitress was Charity and she was great.
We started with hot chocolate and Boschendaal Blanc de Blanc, which is served by
the carafe. Food of choice was the OB fish and the Mediterranean Seafood Soup.
Both were excellent. I really love the Seafood Soup as it has all my favourites

Non-Religious? Would You Like The Option of a Secular Wedding Ceremony?
The South African Secular Society (SASS) is in the process of registering with
the South African Department of Home Affairs as an organisation that is allowed to
legally register Marriage Officers.
A marriage officer is a person designated by the Department of Home
Affairs to legally perform marriages under the Civil Union Act (Act 17 of 2006).
This addition to the Marriage Act came about to allow for same-sex marriages,
and because a growing number of couples
wish to marry legally in a ceremony free of supernatural content.
Help SASS to help you!
To be allowed to legally register marriage officers, SASS needs to give the
Department of Home Affairs 250 initials and surnames of official members.
