The rains have come to Wakkerstroom, and this usually heralds the summer and the serious birders as well as all the other tourists who visit the village to enjoy the safe, peaceful and quiet atmosphere.

There is lots going on in Wakkerstroom at the moment, with the Mountain Challenge taking place on 8 November, and the Christmas Country Fair on 13th December.   There are already nearly 40 stalls firmly booked so the fair will be as exciting as previous ones.

If you would like to have a stall at the market, please contact Wendy on 0828957776, and if not, please try and make a long, long-weekend of the 13th to 16th December and visit the village.  Ensure that you book soon as the accommodation in the village is limited.

 An exciting addition to the Country Fair is the launch of the fiction/adventure novel by local resident, Judy-Lynn Wheeler, who will be holding a signing event at the Wakkerstroom Inn at the Country Fair.  Please support Judy in this exciting venture into the writers’ world, and purchase one of the signed copies which will be available.   Her book has been published internationally, and is being launched in Wakkerstroom on 13 December.
