Inyoni Creek’s Summer Fest includes a Walk with Pride or Take a Ride through the village’s beautiful grounds.
Come Walk with Pride or Take a Ride at Inyoni Creek’s Summer Fest on Saturday, November 3, 2018.
The Rand Aid retirement village in Lyndhurst has a bumper fun day planned and one of the highlights will be a fun walk through the beautiful, rambling village which has a picturesque dam and prolific birdlife.
The walk, which is open to all and sundry, is suitable for the whole family because it offers the option of a 700m wheelchair and pram route, as well as a 2.5km route.
The R25 entry fee – which is payable on the day – includes a bottle of water for all participants and chocolate medals for the first 60 finishers. Participants need not pre-enter, just be there in time to do so before the walk gets under way at 10am. Wheelchair and mobility scooter participants will not pay an entrance fee.
The organisers challenge people with mobility issues to round up some friends and enter as a group. Ride with pride, either in a mobility scooter, self-propelled wheelchair or one that is pushed, along a carefully plotted route. Groups are encouraged to have their photos taken before or after the event and these will be posted to Rand Aid’s Facebook page.
Apart from the walk, there will be a great selection of unique, hand-made goodies for sale – many of which will be Christmas-themed; performances by pipe bands and games for the little ones.
Adding extra excitement will be a number of raffles with prizes ranging from liquor and spice hampers, to a doll’s pram with baby doll and a getaway at the Bakubung Bush Lodge in the Pilanesberg.
Bacon rolls will be on sale from early, with boerewors rolls, curry and rice and, of course, pancakes, also on offer. The ladies running the tea garden have promised delectable scones with jam and cream.
“Community spirit is the name of the game so join us for a fun and festive day,” invite the organisers. “There will be lots to eat, drink, buy and see.”
The Summer Fest takes place between 9am and 3pm, with the walk starting at 10am. Inyoni Creek is run by Rand Aid Association and is situated just off the N3 near Johannesburg, on the corner of Modderfontein and Wordsworth roads. Call Marinda Looyen on 011 430 2014 for further information.
