We have several new families in town, some of them young and energetic and we wish them well in our quiet, safe little village. We also welcome those who have recently come here to retire, and live the good life in Wakkerstroom. A new couple coming to live in Wakkerstroom first saw the village in the movie, Vrou soek Boer, fell in love the the on-screen image, and came and bought property.
A recent birding weekend brought more than 50 serious birders into the region, and the WTA produced welcome-packs with little gifts and information about the town. We are confident that this sort of activity promotes our village in a very positive light.
