We record with great sadness the recent passing of Mart Joubert after a long illness.
Many of our longstanding members, and particularly Botstappers, will remember Piet and Mart with great affection. Piet led Botstap for many years and Mart was always there, chivvying the ladies into providing plates of delicious food – the salads, or pastas, or desserts which accompanied the memorable braais on these outings.
We will long remember the contribution both she and Piet made to Botsoc over the years, Piet as Chairman, “organiser” of the Nursery, and “captain” of Botstap – Mart running the kitchen at Flower Festivals with great aplomb and efficiency. She will be missed.
