The Sweet Service Award goes to Avenue Response, for coming to the assistance of their client when this writer was assaulted in a road rage attack on Springbok Road by Dr Frank Tyga, a resident of that street, on 6 March. Telephonist Kathy Jane of Avenue Response stayed on the line until the security officer Haroon August could come to the rescue, and the Sea Point police arrived.
The Sour Service Award goes to The City of Cape Town, for allowing the cloakrooms at the City Hall to fall into disrepair, and for not renovating them in at least ten years, if not more. Toilets are still of the chain kind, the doors do not have bolts on them anymore, and the floors have holes in them. In general, a most unappetising facility, in contrast with the lovely music that is performed inside the City Hall. Given what the City has and will spend on the World Cup, surely it can make some funds available for the modernisation of the cloakrooms?
