Heritage Month

September is heritage month in South Africa. And to celebrate, this past weekend the Parktown and Westcliff Heritage Trust, ran their annual array of heritage tours in and around Johannesburg. They are the people who ensure that old buildings remain intact and preserved for years to come. The event was extremely well organised and attended and people had a great choice of places to see. I crammed in 2 tours each day (Sat & Sun) which meant that I virtually ate, drank, walked (tho not slept) heritage. I was mostly on my feet for well over 6 hours each day. All in all very informative and interesting weekend. Of course, my dear friend the camera was present too and took copious amounts of pictures .....

For those interested, the trust run regular group/ tours in and around Jhb, talking about heritage. Here is there link if you would like more details.

Incidentally in Oct (24th and 31st) they are running the last heritage month tours (carried over from Sept) which take place in Westcliff .......
