Sandton Central Newsletter July 2017

Live Shot of Sandton Central

As ever Sandton Central is the place to live, work, play, shop and meet. This July it is also at the heart of doing the right thing as we join the nation commemorating Nelson Mandela Day on 18 July. Several of Sandton's leading lights will celebrate Madiba's legacy by making a truly positive difference including Sandton City, Sun International, Fieldspace Property Group, Radisson Blu, RMB, Webber Wentzel, Discovery, and Sandton Sun. There is also a clean-up initiative at Sandton Police Station, and more volunteers are welcome - many hands make light work.

The community theme continues as we look at how three new bridges, the Marlboro Rea Vaya bus and pedestrian bridge, the Grayston pedestrian and Cyclist Bridge, and the Zandspruit bridge, will connect Sandton Central to not only improve transport but also forge stronger bonds between communities.

We take a peek at creative office space, celebrate the launch of co-working and flexible office company OPEN in Sandton, and explore how Growthpoint is giving Tennis in South Africa a space to thrive as it joins forces with Tennis SA as a headline sponsor.

There's also plenty time to relax and unwind with a packed calendar of top-events and happenings. Don't miss the Skip Fashion Exchange on at Sandton City until 31 July, the Bellingham Food and Wine Evening at Maximillien Restaurant on 27 July and Electrify The Night on Saturday 15 July at The Sands Sandton.

Don't forget to save the date for our upcoming celebrations starting with the 5th Fabulous Woman Awards 2017 on Saturday, 5 August at the Radisson Blu Hotel, the Empowerment Breakfast on Saturday, 9 September at the Balalaika Hotel, as well as the highly anticipated Joy Of Jazz on from 28 to 30 September at the Sandton Convention Centre.
