This year, Aalwynhof’s annual bazaar was held early in the year for the first time, instead of the usual September or October, and the event last Friday proved to be a great success.
There was a variety of stalls, offering braai meat, frozen meat and venison, a popular cake table with a selection of home-baked treats, and the irresistible typical bazaar puddings.
Christa van Rensburg looked after an assortment of items on the white elephant stall, and the ever-popular pancakes sold out when the team ran out of batter, despite having made enough for 500 pancakes!
The vegetable stall was well supported, with vegetables picked by members of the Board the previous day on Thabo van Rooyen’s farm. Cabbages and onions were also kindly donated for this stall by Toesie Slabbert.
The cherry on the top was the Café, which was run this year by relative newcomers to the town, Archie Norval and Nico Kemp. Despite only returning from a trip to Dubai the previous evening, the pair managed to conjure up a wonderful selection of dainty cakes and savouries, tea, coffee and their trade mark gingerbeer floats, all sold at extremely reasonable prices.
The Board of Aalwynhof would like to convey a huge vote of thanks to all the convenors, workers, buyers and donors.
