Fine artisan food, taste bud delights, designer arts and crafts are but a few of the lifestyle treats which are awaiting festival-goers on the banks of the Zwartkops River during Saturday’s Fine Food andamp; Lifestyle Festival at Redhouse.

It is organised by South Africa’s oldest rowing club, which is still rowing from its original venue, the Zwartkops Rowing Club. The Club was established in 1873.

According to Rosemary Brunette, the Club is open to membership for all persons young and old, male and female, without exception.

“The ages of our rowers at present vary from 9 years old to 69 years old. Rowing is catered for at both social and competitive levels.

“We compete at all the major regattas and have been successful at both the Senior and Junior South African Championship regattas,” said Brunette.

“We have successfully implemented a development program for previously disadvantaged persons. The program has been running for 2 years and is targeted primarily at the youth from the neighbouring townships and the youngsters of the Redhouse Primary School.”

The Club is extending its membership by approaching schools which do not offer rowing as a sport.

Training times at the river take place on weekday afternoons from 15:00 to 15:30 and Saturday mornings from 08:15 to 12:00.

The Fine Food andamp; Lifestyle Festival will be held on Saturday from 09:00 to 17:00 and offers various different crafts and food, live music and displays. Stalls are R100 on the banks and R150 inside the clubhouse.
