As we all know there is plenty of uncertainty around leases for Sports Clubs in Johannesburg. The lease presented to the Club was rejected by those present at the AGM. Pirates is now engaging with the Sports Council of Gauteng as well as Senior Council for legal advice as to how to proceed with the matter. All members can be assured that the management committee, along with the lease sub committee are attending to the matter with the utmost urgency and any further developments will be relayed to our members

There is an employment company in Germany whose name is Jobs In Town. Their motto, as you can see, is “life’s too short for the wrong job” – their working premise is to match folks with jobs that suit them and that they will enjoy.
