LOCATION: Paarl – Main Road Meander
LEADER: Jozef Smit
We meet outside the Strooidak Church in Main Rd, Paarl – between Haarlem and Rose on the eastern side of the main road. We travel in a Sentosa Tours bus which will meander on and off the main road with Jozef giving us a running commentary on the many beautiful Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian buildings.
We then visit out of town Dal Josefat, Languedoc and Kleinbosch where we will be treated to some warming soup.
On our return to Paarl we have been invited into the home of Emma Kriel in Klein Reservoir St which was the first government school in 1813 and was featured in Jozef’s talk on June 21.
Emma will serve us tea & coffee. This should be around 14.15 and from here it’s only a short walk back to the Strooidak church.
