CRY our beloved land, Clairwood. Today a far cry from the once bustling suburb of the 1905s, which boasted the concentration of the largest Indian population outside the shores of India.
The modest, peaceful and harmonious society, which gave the rise to some of the greatest intellects, politicians, musicians, sportspersons, businessmen, professional persons, industrialists and playwrights will be relived and remembered on Sunday, 10 July.

A day set aside for the reunion of all current and former Clairwood residents, the event will be held at the Clairwood Secondary School sports ground from 11am. A fun-filled day is planned and current and former residents are urged to come in their numbers, bringing their picnic baskets along.

Live music, jumping castles, meet and greet sessions are some of the highlights of the day

In honouring the living Legends, criteria for being honoured, current or former residents over the age of 80 will qualify.

Music will be provided by Men in Black and saxophonist by Kriba Covinden­, who is especially coming from Australia.

Be a proud “Clairwoodian”.

For further information, contact chairman, Siva Naidoo on 084 566 7135.
