Half term escape to South Africa
The October half term provided an opportunity to return to South Africa and visit Cape Town. The main shopping venue on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is Victoria Wharf Mall, home to over 450 retail outlets and 24 million visitors per annum.
This has recently undergone a R180M (£10M), 10-month refurbishment and extension that included the replacement of huge plain glass windows at either end of the main drag with bright painted glass.
With a project focussing upon boosting the popularity of stained glass, it is reassuring to see its increased prevalence.
