Heritage Day 2019 (24 September) will be celebrated by Mpumalanga Heritage with some activities to be held at Elmswood, the home of committee member Robin Bell. This is just off the R37 Brondal road. The turnoff is about 14km from where one turns off the R40 at Riverside. Note that cars are to be parked outside the house gate due to limited parking space within.
The following will be on the programme:
- 11:45 Arrive
- 12:00 Talk by Duncan Ballantyne entitled “The Gold Pioneers”. This is an illustrated talk on the intrepid and legendary prospectors who discovered gold in Mpumalanga and their legacy.
- 13:00 onwards. Braai at Robin’s lapa. Bring your own food and drinks as well as picnic chairs.
- 13:00 onwards. Members are invited to each bring something to share or contribute towards the spirit of the day. Either bring historical books for trading or selling or else bring along some memorabilia or interesting artefact with a story that can be shared (show & tell).
