In any community one of the most important services provided by the dedicated people of the townships are the Crèche. Without these facilities many people would have great difficulty in going out to work. All of them cater for between 20 to 40 children. The people who run these crèche are trained in pre-school education and put in a great deal of effort to make these places a happy experience for the children. These places will leave an impression in your mind never to be forgotten.

A number of vineyards have been reorganised into trusts for which the employees are beneficiaries. Effectively the employees are “owners” benefitting from the profits of the vineyard.
