VILLIERSDORP TOURISM ASSOCIATION

DECEMBER 2021 FOOD AND WINE EDITION

BUT BEFORE WE GET TO THE GOOD GRUB AND AMAZING RESTAURANTS AND TASTING VENUES, A WORD FROM OUR CHAIR:

GREETINGS VILLIERSDORP TOURISM MEMBERS,

IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE THAT ANOTHER YEAR IS COMING TO AN END. IT’S BEEN A DIFFICULT YEAR FOR TOURISM INDUSTRY, BUT ALSO ONE IN WHICH THERE IS HOPE AS THE SEVERITY OF THE OMICRON VARIANT IS FAR LESS SEVERE THAN PREVIOUS VARIANTS AND LOCAL TOURISM IS PICKING UP.

GREAT NEWS FOR OUR VALLEY IS THAT NO LONGER IS DINING OUT AT NIGHT IMPOSSIBLE DUE TO LACK OF EATERIES BEING OPEN AFTER DARK AND THUS WE HAVE DECIDED TO MAKE “ALL THINGS WINING AND DINING” THE THEME OF THIS NEWSLETTER.

YOUR COMMITTEE CONDUCTED A STRAT PLANNING SESSION POST THE AUGUST AGM AND WE HAVE IDENTIFIED SEVERAL FOCUS AREAS. WE WILL SHARE THESE WITH YOU IN THE NEW YEAR, HOWEVER WE NEED YOUR HELP.

YOUR SUPPORT AND TO MY TEAM FOR THEIR ONGOING ENTHUSIASM AND DEDICATION.

WISHING YOU AND YOURS A BLESSED CHRISTMAS AND A FANTASTIC 2022.

STAY SAFE

KIND REGARDS

MARGARET JACQUEMIN

VILLIERSDORP TOURISM CHAIRPERSON
