Baakens Valley Events in June

Whoops…I forgot to include in our June Events post details of things happening in the Baakens Valley during the month. Its been great to see this incredible space being used more regularly now for a variety of events. To the WESSA team and all those involved in the Baakens Valley Community Partnership… thank you, well done, and keep up the good work!

On the 2 June the Baakens Buddies will be building bridges (literally) in the valley…

Join us this Saturday 2 June in building two new bridges over teh Baakens River the Sunridge NGK. We plan to drop two massive bluegum trees over the river to form the bridges – TIMBER! – should be lots of fun! 
Meeting point is at 08h30 outside the Voortrekker Hall, Sunridge Park (nexyt to NGK Church, Broadway Road). Best to bring lots of water, sturdy shoes/boots, hammers, saws, tea snacks, lunch (we may go a bit past 13h00). If you have some lenths of thick chain or metal stakes for anchoring one of the bridges, please bring then along! SEE YOU THERE! 

On the 2nd and 17th the are Trail Run races taking place…
