Do Good

3 ways to support Oasis: shop, donate or take your recycling there

These are a few of the treasures that have been discovered at the Oasis Bric-a-Brac shop: the first editions of a J.R.R Tolkien book and George Orwell’s 1984, and a small, leather-bound religious notebook with a tiny watercolour drawing once owned by world-renowned painter Irma Stern.

Treasure-hunting at Oasis can bring rich rewards, but contributing is the most fulfilling. The shop is just one part of the Oasis Association, which started as a school for the intellectually disabled in 1952 and has expanded to what it is today, a village with daycare centres, houses for the disabled, a bakery and recycling centre.

Talking to You

When December comes, it’s like we can smell the holidays around the corner – sun-tan lotion, pizzas, watermelon and pineapple, gin-and-tonics or pina coladas, Sauvignon and Chardonnay, the sea. In our 7 things, we tell you where to find the best swimming spots, seaside bars (and a swish, new beach club), where to taste wine and enjoy gorgeous picnics. There’s also a new vegan ice-cream bar where the scoops are so delicious that queues form to get some, and if you’re into whisky, you have got to get to this place. Also, here’s your lockdown and coronavirus news. And for daily discoveries, join us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, or subscribe to our newsletter.
