This year we are seeing a huge effort being made to draw new and unknown artists and crafters alongside the well known and international artists to the 3rd Art & Craft Ramble to be held from June 16th to 19th June in Wakkerstroom.  A variety of Art and Craft courses are being run, busking, plays and movies on the lives of artists will be shown. The craft competition for adults ‘Wrapped in Winter’ has some lovely prizes and colouring in for children under 10 is getting them inspired!  Competition winners will be announced on the 19th June at the Auction of Art, Craft, Accommodation, Meals, Décor items and other items in aid of Dana.  Alongside this there is a fun run on Thursday and the Mountain Challenge on Saturday.  Wrap up warm and join us as Wakkerstroom certainly is the place to be in June!  www.artramblewakkerstroom.co.za

On Sunday the 29th of November 2015, more than 785 000 people took to the streets in various countries of the world. – Click here for full story.

As testament to the changing weather – which long-time Wakkerstroomians claim to be very different from even just a few years ago – a bad storm in November blew over many trees, took roofs off, and knocked over tombstones in the Historical Cemetery, widely acknowledged as being one of the best-kept historical cemeteries in the country. Residents recently got together to help clean the cemetery up.
