Montagu Historical Society Outing

Saturday, 24 June 2017
The Montagu Historical Society will be having an outing to two of the most historic sites in Montagu during the month of June!

Alf Boyley will be giving a talk on the history of Montagu during the ABW, as well as guide us to two of the forts surrounding Montagu. This certainly is an event not to be missed. For although quite a bit had been said and written about the number of forts bordering our little town, the last word is still hanging somewhat loosely in the air...somewhere.

Arrangements are as follows:

1. We all meet in front of the @station-shop in Kohler Street - at 10H00 on Saturday, 24 June 2017.
2. From there we will proceed to the Nature Garden Fort. From the parking area, it is a short walk up to the fort, so please make sure that you are wearing comfortable shoes.
3. Afterwards the party will continue to the premises of Cape Dry in Bath Street (past the Police Station on the Baden Road). We will be met by Burger Conradie, who will transport us up to the fort at Knipes Hope, where the talk will continue (Part 2).
4. After this leg of the outing, it should be around 12H30. From there, the group will settle at the restaurant at Cape Dry for a light meal and/or something to drink (note - for own account).
This, in a nutshell, are the arrangements for Saturday, 24 June 2017.

Please spread the word, invite whoever you think might enjoy the morning with us!

Important: At this stage we need numbers. This is important for the good folks at Cape Dry. So, please let me know as soon as you can how many will be in your party.
RSVP by Monday, 12 June 2017.
