We’re spending Easter at Gateway! Autumn is here and it’s time to get out and enjoy warm balmy afternoons and lazy sundowners (while most of the country cools down and heads indoors). Adding to the glorious outdoor vibes at Gateway Theatre of Shopping, there will also be live entertainment in the Palm Court over the Easter weekend … and we can’t wait! The lineup is as follows: Saturday 3 April – 6 to 9pm; Sunday 4 April – 6 to 9pm and Monday 5 April 12 to 3pm.

We don’t know about you, but we’re looking forward to getting out and mingling (safely) again. The North Coast Courier Orphan Fund is hosting a wonderful ‘denim & diamonds’ ladies tea and it’s the perfect excuse to get dressed up and have some fun with your girlfriends … for a good cause! The tea takes place at 9am on 23 April at The Waterberry in Ballito and the theme of the morning is ‘Thrive’.
Hosted by ECR’s Minnie Ntuli, the event will include interesting talks by specialist orthopaedic and women’s health physio Tarryn Graham and specialist obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Nombuso Mthethwa. There are also wonderful prizes up for grabs (including a weekend away!).
Book your ticket to avoid missing out.
Details: Tickets are R190 and booked via fundraising coordinator Mpume: [email protected], 032 946 0276. Dress code is denim and diamonds. Proceeds go to the North Coast Courier Orphan Fund, a non-profit organisation that raises money for (and channels it to) organisations within the community caring for orphans and vulnerable children.
It’s choo-choo time! The Umgeni Steam Train is back on its tracks after a long lockdown rest and we can’t wait to hop aboard! Watch autumn roll past your window on this much-loved train, which runs the last Sunday of each month and on select holidays. It departs from and returns to Stokers Arms in Kloof, with a stop at Inchanga Station where you can browse around the Inchanga community market. Bookings are open and there are trips planned for the Easter weekend as well.
