■ Heideveld resident Sophia Poole celebrated her 96th birthday last Friday, March 23, with her family and friends at her residence in Heideveld. The family matriarch was excited, and grateful for achieving such a milestone. The former Wynberg resident reminisced about her youthful days spent in the suburb. She had been an ardent netball player and helped establish the Spenston Netball Club in 1962 and collected numerous accolades. In 1965 she and her late husband Alfred were forcefully uprooted under the Group Areas Act and moved to the Cape Flats.
