Share and Enjoy !

enjoy the great music on offer! 

For the past few years, music enthuthiusts in our surrounds would make their way to Rock Lily in Cape St Francis to watch and listen to South Africa’s greatest talent from all genre’s. Michael Kimmings left the world of corporate business to follow his passion – great music. At Rock Lilly, the best of the best as well as some of the new faces on the scene, could all be found there, and enjoyed. Before closing the doors, Michael approached us about sharing our great venue for musicians our members and locals would love to see. We agreed, and our first artists are PJ Powers, Tigger Reunert and Thandeka. Mike sells the tickets through “Quicket” and you call us to set up your tables for seating. We have the space to give you the choice. Our Chef Jon and his team will be offering “easy food” on the side, to keep your energy levels up, with drink specials, as well! Tickets for the Show, starting at 20h00 are R150 per person. 

Join for the music on offer and we will keep it coming for the future!

Now that is worth a little “Sunday Best” – bring the kids – playground and movies in the conference centre (with 
sitters”) for them! Same procedure – Quiket and then tables through us!

To Sharon, Thinus and Proshop staff

Well, what can we say. When you become members of this estate, you immediately receive Royal status. After a joking email suggesting that we would like to pick up our new golf cart on such and such a date, complete with red carpet, flowers and a big red bow, sure enough, it was all there, plus champagne, at the appointed time!!

Many thanks to Sharon who was the Royal Events Coordinator for this, as well as the rest of the wonderful Links Staff for their ongoing very special treatment of all us lucky members of St Francis Links.

Fondest Regards

Chris and Robyn Roberts
Soon to be permanent residents

Sorry, Rex and David, we could have done this for you, as well! Enjoy the rides. 

By the way, for those of you waiting for used cars, we will be making 14 of our fleet cars available for purchase. These are all in good condition and feature batteries that are two years old. – R36 000 plus VAT – contact Thinus on 042 200 4502

Always a special day away! Make a plan, ladies!
