Take a trip around the city with me as I take a gander at some of the most exciting events currently on, as well as what’s on the immediate horizon.
Eggsperience the Joy
Cadbury Dairy Milk has announced the launch of a special limited-edition Peter Rabbit Milk Chocolate Egg with Astros inside. This mouth-watering offering promises to delight consumers this Easter.
The latest product offering will roll out with its recently launched television commercial, that sees a floppy-eared Cadbury Dairy Milk Easter bunny off on a mission to deliver joy to the nation. In addition, the campaign will celebrate a partnership with Sony Pictures – which will see the beloved Beatrix Potter storybook character Peter Rabbit making the jump onto the big screen, with the movie set to launch in cinemas nationwide on March 29.
“There are certain treats that we just can’t help but think about when specific holidays come around, and eggs are synonymous with this chocolate-fuelled season. Our new and exciting TVC is a visually appealing reminder of this special occasion. We cannot wait to see it hitting screens, as we hope to make Easter an even more joyful one this year,” Cadbury states in the press release surrounding the product.
The Peter Rabbit egg is available in participating retail stores at a recommended retail price (RSP) of R39.99 each.
We have some special hampers to give away. To enter email the name of the movie that inspired Cadbury’s to create the above egg. Email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 26 March 2018. Winners will be emailed directly.

Celebrating women’s rugby in Langa
The annual Score Easter Rugby Tournament, the highlight on the club rugby calendar with Score Energy Drink as title sponsor for the second consecutive year, is not only a celebration of rugby, but also the empowerment of women. This year’s tournament kicks off at Langa Sports Grounds, the home turf of the Busy Bee Rugby Football Club on Friday, March 30.
Marking the hosting club’s 95th anniversary, the Score Busy Bee Easter Rugby Tournament has attracted 36 teams from all over South Africa comprising senior men’s, youth and women’s rugby.
Established in 1923, the Busy Bee Rugby Football Club was formed with the purpose of engaging the youth in the game of rugby as a means of taking them away from the streets, drugs and criminal activities. Women’s rugby was introduced to the club in 2010 to share in the unity through sport and social upliftment. Today the club boasts 75 female players, and has seen numerous Springbok, Super League and Western Province Craven week players come through its ranks.
