Knowing our heritage serves as a guidepost as it shows the connection between the past and the future. Knowledge also creates a sense of belonging and pride. I encourage residents and especially schools to please take advantage of this opportunity,’ said the City’s Deputy Mayor and Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning, Alderman Eddie Andrews.</div><div><br></div><div>General enquiries may be submitted via email to Mr Marc Smith:</div><div><br><br></div><p><br></p>2022-09-03T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#1e5df7f1-2c08-437c-9898-dc660c88a689;L0|#01e5df7f1-2c08-437c-9898-dc660c88a689|heritage;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#b35f3050-912a-47d6-ae51-883999916a58;L0|#0b35f3050-912a-47d6-ae51-883999916a58|Langa;GP0|#83667d91-5af7-4a3e-bee0-e78b27f9dbdb;L0|#083667d91-5af7-4a3e-bee0-e78b27f9dbdb|Blaauwberg nature reserve10
