Royalston Coastal Vegetation
Preservation Group

Description: The primary focus of this group is the preservation of the coastal vegetation. In order to achieve this we will be looking at the control of alien vegetation within Royalston. This is a long term project. First is to create a plan on how to achieve our goals. Part of this plan is a transition which does not denude the vegetation.

Friday Afternoon Coffee

Description: Join us on a Friday afternoon at Javali for a cup of coffee and maybe indulge in some of Javali's delicious waffles or confectionary. We normally meet from 2pm.

Die BabyBoomers

Description: This group of friends meet every last Thursday of the month at the Boma for a casual hike, followed by a social get-together. There are various hiking routes ranging from 5 kilometres for those who are fit and shorter routes for relaxed strollers. Those who prefer not to walk, stay at the Boma and keep the braai experts company. After the hike, fires are ready for the bring-and-braai, a well deserved cup of coffee and lots of chats and laughter. Another highlight is the so called "Vat 5" - an initiative to get to know each other through music. When it rains or it's too windy, we meet at Javali for a cuppa-and-a-chat.

If you're young at heart, love the outdoors and meeting new friends, then the BabyBoomers is just for you.
