Suitcase Stories unpacked

2018-05-01 06:00

Gatesville Neighbourhood Watch will host a “Suitcase Stories” event on Wednesday 9 May from 10:30 to 13:00, to unpack the heritage, apartheid and marriage stories of seniors within the community.

Fowzia Veerasamy, chairperson of the group, says interested seniors from all over the city are invited to attend. “A show-and-tell with displays of vintage memorabilia will also be on show on the day. I invited members of the District Six Museum, councillor Aslam Cassiem and members of the Arts and Culture Department, as I believe our storytelling tales are lost in the new age era,” she says.

The event is open to the public for free.
