Argus Day: Sunflower Fun Fundraiser!

Please come and support Scarborough's very own Preschool with other Scarborites, while watching the cyclists whizz by on Sunday morning!  
We will be selling slices of juicy watermelon (R5) kindly donated by Rodger's, delicious chai tea (R10) and other goodies baked by parents in support of our school.

We will be stationed under our gazebo in front of Village Homes on Main Road, corner Camel Rock Road (the road down to the beach) from 7:30AM to 12PM.
Kiddies bring along your cozzies and towels so you can play in the splash pool!

Argus Sunday: The Village Hub is open from 7am – 3pm, join us for a celebration

This Sunday morning some 35 000 enthusiastic cyclists will whizz through our Village, including quite a few energetic Scarborough locals!

We'll be putting up a grand stand in our parking lot and will be open from 7am – 3pm. Join us for all day pizza, drinks, coffee and ice cream!  Foragers, the shop will be open to. DJ, Greg Salter will be turning up the tunes from 9am.  There's no shade, so please don't forget to bring your hat!

Camel Rock Restaurant

Coming Sunday Camel Rock is opening it’s doors again for Fish Braai ’n Jazz. These Sunday afternoons are slowly becoming Scarborough’s best kept secret. A full house of locals and lucky visitors enjoying each others company, fresh fish from the braai, lovely salads – all accompanied by our local jazz legend Hein Van de Geyn on piano, and the highly talented bassist Zen Salter. Spontaneous guest appearances by guitarists Khaya Salter and Mikyle Wright are part of the musical menu often. A nice blend of Jazz standards and Brazilian songs. Music starts at 5:30.
