Every February, the HBS Committee hosts a braai for members in the Fernkloof gardens. Chops, Wors and Sosaties are expertly grilled by Hoogie van Hoogstraten and his fellow braai-masters. Another team creates a selection of tasty and creative salads plus the other braai essentials.
Over 90 members and friends arrived to enjoy the balmy evening together. Gay bunting hung from the trees and picnic tables covered in bright cloths added to the atmosphere. Out came the bottles of wine and juice and the bowls of nibbles while the meat cooked to perfection.
The Committee were delighted with the support given to this event by both long-standing and new members. It was good to see the welcome given to those who are new to Fernkloof. Those who were there all agreed that the meal was both generous and delicious, the venue perfect and that they are looking forward to enjoying a similar happy evening with the Hermanus Botanical Society the following February.
