The Vlakte

27 October 2017

Wolfred Damen and other ex-residents of Die Vlakte will share their recollections at a public tour
of Die Vlakte on Saturday 18 November 2017 from 10:00 to 13:00. The tour is hosted by the
Stellenbosch University Gallery.

Wilfred Damon of Stellenbosch

In April 2017, the previous tour, coincided with the launch of Pumflet Gaiety. The success of the
tour prompted many requests to repeat it.

    I would like to make contact with Ms Mcleod with a view to offering her any information I may have about her Vlakte family of those years, or possibly put her in contact with other people who have a ‘living memory’ of the place.

    Thanks for all the efforts for restoration.

    We used to stay in Andringa Street 84 between the Presence and Moses Family.

    I have good memories.

    I am now in Namibia since 1981
