Tons of old trains for children to play and imagine on, as well as lots of comfy seating in a peaceful and safe environment for parents and grandparents to relax and enjoy.
The revival of the train station is adding exceptional value to Hilton, as well as keeping it neat and tidy and discouraging a bad element.
Those in the know at the Hilton Station are looking at developing a sustainable income and putting ideas into action that appeal to the community.
As with any community project, there are always costs involved and a need for plenty of maintenance, restoration, and maintenance equipment (eg lawn mowers and parts etc).
If any community members would like to get involved in helping to restore the trains and surrounding buildings, pop into Station Stop Coffee Shop, order a coffee, become lost in a moment and chat about how you can help.

9pm - The Lion & The Bear & the Panther
Formerly known as AVADE, the three members - Ross Meintjies, Brendon Meintjies and Ruben Thomas, now perform under the moniker The Lion, The Bear & The Panther. With the popularity and reasonable success of Ross and Ruben’s acoustic duo The Lion & The Bear, it made sense to add Brendon (aka The Panther) to the fray for certain shows. AVADE is just a name, as is The Lion, The Bear & The Panther. The energy, the passion, the music, the three humans involved... is the same. Energy, passion, power and joy. That was AVADE, and THIS is The Lion, The Bear & The Panther. Join us at the incredible MiTH on 22nd Jan for a very special night!
8pm - The Zambucks (formerly known as Kodiak Music)
This reformed four-piece band still features David Adrian Rossouw on lead vocals and Rudi Engelbrecht on drums, now with Gareth Barry on lead guitar and Richard Pratt on bass - playing a variety of memorable music from the sixties to the nineties. They'll get you going for sure!
7pm - Lulu Lund
Lulu Lund is a singer-song writer from Hilton village. With a folky acoustic style she grew up surrounded by the sounds of Clapton, Fleetwood Mac & Dylan. Having grown up singing, she picked up the guitar in her early twenties and then moved to London playing in pubs and performing at weddings & events. She has recently moved back to South Africa after six 6 years abroad and will continue with her passion of music.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO:
MiTH takes place every second Wednesday at The Knoll Historic Guest Farm, Knoll Drive, Hilton. Doors open at 6pm and the music will kick off at 7pm. Entrance is R50 at the door. Bring your own booze. Food and soft drinks are available for sale.
DIRECTIONS TO MiTH:
Take the N3 to Hilton, take the Hilton turnoff and go South into the Village (away from Hilton College). Travel 5,2km along Hilton Avenue (past two sets of traffic lights and Crossways Pub) and keep going straight as Hilton Avenue turns into Dennis Shepstone Drive. At the 5,2km mark, Knoll Drive will be on your right – the entrance to MiTH is the *second* entrance on your left into The Knoll Historic Guest Farm.
I have literally spent over 35 years developing my teaching skills for the sole purpose of helping as many students as possible to develop these vital skills. This is my passion, my drive and my mission. My greatest sense of satisfaction and pride comes from helping another person - young or old - unlock their God-given intellectual and academic potential.
If you want to give your child the best opportunity to excel in their mathematical thinking and problem-solving skills, and you are willing to invest in their future, I would like to invite you to discuss the various intervention programs I have that could best suit your child and budget.
Although I limit the number of students I work with, I am willing to tutor any student whom I see has the potential to achieve top marks in this subject, no matter how weak or strong they may currently be at maths.
Due to the limited number of students I take at any one time, should you wish for your child to be considered for this elite group of future mathematicians, please book your assessment as soon as possible.' shared Greg Shapiro (061 544 7393) who has brought his successful maths learning system to Hilton and surrounds.

It was a successful 2019 year for the UCSI, with well over 40 arrests being made and vehicles impounded. The UCSI also saw 16 SNIPR enabled gantries erected and numerous other gantries linked to the UCSI network of cameras. This was all made possible through community funding and support.
The network of gantries and SNIPR information becomes more powerful as it grows and is effectively managed and responded to. This is what makes the UCSI so unique and successful. Partnerships with SNIPR and TrackBox Technologies SA CAN are incredibly important and play a HUGE role in the success of the UCSI.
The best part of 2019 was the tangible excitement and support from our local SAPS. It has been a pleasure to empower them with valid SNIPR information and in return have unquestionable support and action. This is how we make a difference in our Community, Province and Country.
The UCSI plans to strengthen relations with the uMngeni Municipality and in 2020 and aims to have more gantries and CCTV cameras erected in the community. Safety and security is how we ensure socio-economic growth and investment in our community.
The UCSI goes into 2020 with Frans Labuschagne joining the team as the Operations Manager. Frans comes with an exceptional track-record and relationships in the Law Enforcement and security industries sectors.
The UCSI Board of Directors would like to thank Debbie Preston for investing the last 15 months into the establishment of the UCSI and ensuring its success. Debbie will be taking up a full-time teaching post at Epworth School in January 2020 and we wish her all the very best. Debbie will remain on the UCSI Board of Directors, and will continue to guide and advise the UCSI team on-the-ground.
