OUR WORKFORCE VAN ONS TAKKE Clarens Golf days Hinterland hosted two supplier golf days, one at Middelburg and one in picturesque Clarens. Manager Input Supply, Kevin Smit says these golf days are not just about having fun. “Our customer golf days are vitally important to cement and foster existing and new relationships with our customers. Retail is all about relationships, as we know, and golf is a great way to maintain business relationships. A big thank you to Marlene Momberg for organising everything.” Middelburg Bothaville Expo a huge success ALL ROADS LED to Bothaville on the day when the branch had its first annual expo recently. Various suppliers and customers hosted stalls to exhi­bit their products and brands. A few wrestlers were part of the entertainment on the day. Branch manager Marius van Wyk said the event was a huge success: “Together with the Black Friday event the day 6 Herontdek dÍt wat saakmaak before, I would estimate that we had well over 1000 pairs of feet through our doors. I need to give special thanks to our suppliers who made it all possible as well as our staff who were amazing in their work effort and passion. There will definitely be another expo this year with one or two changes and even a surprise or two,” says Marius. FarmCity co-sponsors Hoërskool Akasia Games THE FARMCITY BANNER flew high and strong at a recently held event at Hoërskool Akasia. Learners at the school had to do battle against other schools in the area to determine the school with the best spirit in the annual “Skool met die Beste Gees” competition, which is hosted by local community radio station Groot FM. The learners had to navigate a series of obstacles; one of them included dressing up of mannequins.
