New Rose Gar­den to host fair

Grocott's Mail - - SOUL FOOD - STAFF RE­PORTER

The new Rose Gar­den at St Cyprian’s High­lands, ded­i­cated ear­lier this year in mem­ory of Gra­ham­stown Physi­cian Dr Celia Jame­son Rose, will be in use for the first time in Septem­ber as venue for the an­nual Coun­try Fair.

The pre­vi­ously rough slop­ing ter­rain has been lev­eled and land­scaped and the Tracey fam­ily planted the first gar­den rose. The site has be­come a wellloved first-night stopover on Ge­orge Eu­vrard’s pilgrimage trail – the Indlela yoBantu Pilgrimage of Hope – which Arch­bishop Emer­i­tus Des­mond Tutu de­scribed as that “won­der­fully in­spired and in­spir­ing idea”.

The Church has made the new site avail­able to the com­mu­nity as a venue for wed­dings and other com­mu­nity func­tions.

The St Cyprian’s Coun­try Fair has be­come a cal­en­dar event in Gra­ham­stown for hik­ers, bik­ers and es­pe­cially for par­ents on the look­out for week­end ac­tiv­i­ties for the whole fam­ily. In ad­di­tion to the now fa­mous trea­sure hunt, pony rides, touch farm for kids with Daisy the Sheep, candy floss, pancakes, tea gar­den and farm potjie lunch, there is a range of coun­try craft, farm bak­ing and mut­ton and veni­son.

The Coun­try Fair will be held on Sun­day 10 Septem­ber start­ing at 11am af­ter Com­mu­nion Ser­vice at 10am. Ei­ther take the High­lands Road (about 18km on gravel from the Monastery) or off the N2 to­wards Alicedale and then right to High­lands.
