Thornhill Manor’s annual Family Fun Day and Fete on Saturday, October 6, 2018, was blessed with beautiful, sunny weather. When the doors to the hall opened at 9am sharp, long lines had formed, with visitors eager to have first pickings at the white elephant, books, cakes and sewing stalls. Outside in the village’s park area, stalls were set up under the trees. In addition to the stalls run by residents of the Rand Aid retirement village, there were over 30 outside stalls. “Live and commercial music by Janis Redde added to the festive mood and many a person commented that this was such a lovely touch for the day and added so much atmosphere,” says Thornhill Manor deputy manager Jackie Scott. Pictured are Eunice de Jager and John and Joyce van Leeuwen, all Thornhill Manor residents who sold decoupage and calendars.
