I have just received this from The Friends of the Royal Welsh Regimental Museum, Brecon.
The Friends will be holding their annual event in The Sergeants Mess, Dering Lines on Saturday October 14th and the theme will be The Goodwill Collaboration. This will be a lunchtime event.
Please keep the date free and fill a table with friends or supporters for this event which will highlight our plans for Model Farm and next year’s Festival.
Details to follow.
So to expand on what this is for. As many of us are aware abject poverty in rural KwaZulu-Natal is the norm, and the agriculture practiced in the villages is quite literally subsistence farming. In an effort to cement a bond between Brecon and KwaZulu-Natal, an agricultural scheme has been launched involving Brecon, the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester and Aberystwyth University to help develop a self-help programme in the name of His Late Majesty King Goodwill Zwelithini kaBhekuzulu.
In addition to the agricultural programme avenues are also being explored to introduce wind and solar energy alternatives, given the energy crisis that South Africans experience on a daily basis.
In my humble opinion this is an opportunity to genuinely help the people of KwaZulu-Natal, so please try to support it!
When I have further details on the lunch I post them on the Forum.
