Kimberley Temporary Water Shutdown UPDATES – October 2020
Water Shutdown UPDATE: 25/10/2020 – 22:35
An airvalve snapped(broke off) on the 965 pipeline, and is wasting volumes more water, and affecting feed to reservoirs. It must be replaced with immediate effect, and as such we have to stop water supply through the 965 pipeline. Areas like Galeshewe, Lerato Park and others receiving water from this line will be affected while we are attending to this problem. Teams are attending to it, and regular updates will be provided.

TODAY IS MINCEMEAT DAY
Mincemeat can be a confusing term for those who are unfamiliar with it, and sometimes even confusing for those who are. Mincemeat is a mixture of diced fruit, meat, and distilled spirits that are often used as a pie filling, but even this term isn’t always accurate. These days it isn’t unusual to find mincemeat that doesn’t contain meat, or contains beef suet rather than vegetable shortening.
It’s a popular filling for pies all over the world, being particularly popular in Australia, Canada, Ireland, South Africa, the UK, and the USA, just to name a few.
