with horses. Anyone who wishes to attend this outing and/or the Annual General Meeting must
please book with me or Naas Grove, and a fee of R100 per head will be levied for the forest
outing (no charge for children), partially to cover costs, and a portion will go towards
conservation projects. A lunch pack will be provided for the tour, and lunch will be provided with
