April 100 Club Draw – Friday 26th April 6pm
Well that was an interesting few days! Over 450mls fell in just over 48 hours from Sunday evening till Tuesday evening and we are all feeling quite damp! Some incredible photos have been doing the rounds but the good news is that the course has coped well, it is draining beautifully. The dams are full. Luckily no major damage has occurred and the tidying up shouldn’t take too long.
Approx 40 Hadedas enjoying the sunshine after the rain had stopped on Wednesday
A few wild strelitzias trees came down in the car park. Sadly some Southbroomers lost their boundary walls and many reported water just pounding through their properties and homes. The rain was just incredible. It just kept on pouring down.
The lower Margate town flooded again down near the Sasol Garage, but the cleanup is well under way.
Sunny skies are on the cards for the weekend and the preparations for Margate Bike week are all systems go, starting tomorrow Friday the 26th.

Southbroom Main Beach will come back, as it always does, but it is quite a sight to see it all washed away at the moment. There is a village drive to help clear the beaches and tidal pool of the debris collected. Thanks to our Ratepayers Committee and Water Committee for their tireless work around the village for sorting out sink holes, alerting homeowners of problems, checking on the water reservoirs etc, etc. The Southbroom News UpdatesFacebook Page is a great way of communicating problem areas and warnings.

An sweet start to Easter
Luckily the Easter weekend had started with fabulous weather on Friday. Thanks To Trevor and Yolande of Southbroom Supermarket for their delicious hot cross bun sponsorship for all the winners in the Good Friday Alliance Comp!
Saturday Open Allliance was well supported and the evening in the clubhouse was totally full. The Alchins 21st was happening in Mulligans and the Southbroom Legends were entertaining a packed clubhouse. It was great! The dinner was pronounced superb, the dance floor was full and all enjoyed the evening. Thanks again to our extra special Southbroom Legends: Band Mel, Richard, Des and Deon! Together with guest artist acts from Tom Jones, Bob Dylan, Malcolm & Joy – you guys rock!
