Capetonians are being encouraged to enjoy their living heritage.

As Heritage Month draws to a close, Capetonians are being encouraged to enjoy their living heritage. Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment for the City of Cape Town, Alderman Marian Nieuwoudt says this is linked the identity of South Africans. She says it includes practices and places that can bring people together to create a deeper understanding of our past to move towards a shared, representative heritage future: “So, let's visit a corner shop, a spring, take a taxi, walk the streets of Cape Town, taste and smell the food. Remembering the past, acknowledge its value in the present, and imagine what an inclusive heritage future could look like. What this generation's contribution would be to our living heritage.” PHOTOS: The Avaish Café is a popular café in Salt River which is still held in the same family since the turn of the 19th century. This Coffee Shop in Claremont, used to be a popular corner shop and supply store for the residents in the broader area before forced removals. A row of terraced houses used to be located on part of this park in Claremont but was demolished during the forced removals in terms of the Group Areas.
