VS - 2018
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:01:40 AM »
Hearing a number of folk have been granted Voluntary Separation packages...

One get's the feeling that when people like Naftal start to leave then the writing is on the wall for the future of this once unique town....

Andre Engelbrecht, Henk Rikkets(sp), Jd Van Der Merwe, Naftal Negongo, Johan Gouws, Martha Smith to name but a few....

At least they can all say they had the best years and as one of the above pointed out to me just know, when he returned from a recent holiday to the town, it was like coming back to identify a body in a morgue...

The reality of costs in running a town like this is starting to show.

Good Luck to them all, waiting to hear who the other 30 odd people might be....
