In Focus your community magazine – Dainfern Nature Association June 2022
Posted On June 10, 2022
May has been a busy month on our Estate. We had a wonderful Mother’s Day celebration at the clubhouse and even though the weather was cold and rainy, there were smiles all around as families celebrated this special day with their moms.
The Dainfern Nature Association hosted the Chameleon Village Reptile Park visit and both young and old were enthralled by the creepies and crawlies that were shown and discussed. It was a wonderfully entertaining and educational morning attended by many residents and their families. Everybody learned something new on the day.
Ladies Club Champs
Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 May saw the ladies competing for the Ladies Club Champ of 2022. The winner is Tylah James – congratulations. The course was in great condition, and we had 37 ladies playing for the Championship. Thanks go to all the participants for their support, the sponsors for their generosity as well as the whole golf team for ensuring that these two days ran extremely smoothly.
André Marx hosted an incredible bird walk on Saturday 21 May, and we had a lovely turnout of avid bird watchers. Thank you to the Dainfern Nature Association for arranging this event and to André for sharing his wealth of knowledge.
Domestic Workers Forum
We held a Domestic Workers Forum on Tuesday 24 May at the Pavilion arranged by Douglasdale SAPS and CPF (Community Policing Forum). This was an opportunity to upskill our domestic staff in first aid, fire prevention, reporting of crimes, safety and security tips, as well as guidelines around the walking of dogs on the Estate. Refreshments were served to all attendees.
June is looking exciting with our launch of the FANTASTIC FRIDAZE on Friday 3 June and our Youth Market on 16 June at the Pavilion. As wonderful as it is to start having more and more events on the Estate, we are cognisant of the fact that Covid numbers are extremely high in this fifth
wave. We ask residents to still be cautious and hold online meetings (if possible), keep physically distanced, wash your hands often and continue
with the wearing of masks – for the safety of everybody.
