Parents are welcome at the centre for the duration of the day at a fee of R20 per person.

Andre van Breda, the chairperson of the CTSMEE says: “For those that are interested to join the club, application forms will be available.

“If a person wants to get started and does not have the space for a layout they can join the club, as the club can provide a platform to run the member’s equipment. The club has a fully equipped workshop with lathes, shapers and milling machines. If assistance is required our club has two qualified machinists and a fitter and turner who are always willing to teach new members the trade.”V For more information, call Andre van Breda on 082 378 2437 or Geoffrey de Vartek on 072 787 6709.
