Time for a Revamp

In the last few months there has been many positive changes at

La Récolte, a new clubhouse, new residents at Block C and a frail care. Therefore, it was time to revamp and beautify our entrances and halls. Block A & B entrance halls were furnished with the assistance of Nolene (interior decorator) by using existing furniture from the furnished entrance halls on floors 1 and 3 of both blocks as well as donated furniture, Persian carpets, ornaments and pictures. Thank you to all residents for sharing to beautify all our entrance halls.

We would like to give a special thanks Eugene, Carmen, Elaine, Gielie

and Nolene for assisting with moving furniture between floors.

The end result speaks for itself!

First Social

Thanks to Penny Olivier (A212) for inspiring 14 creative ladies to partake in embroidery, knitting, crocheting and socializing in our fabulous new clubhouse.

This social will be the first of many to come and was a roaring success! We anticipate that this event will take place every 2 weeks on a Wednesday from 2-4 pm. Come join the fun!

Celebrating Heritage Day

On Friday 20 September 2021, Heritage Day was celebrated in true South African style at La Récolte.

This day is dedicated to our culture, diversity and traditions. Hosted by Western Province Catering, the servers dressed for this occasion and our residents were served a variety of vetkoeke.
