Margaret De Villiers – Champion of the World

When Margaret left for London to represent Africa in the Royal Horticultural Botanical Art Exhibition, we knew she would do well, but we were all overwhelmed when she returned home with the award for the Best of the Show!  What an accolade and what a woman!  We are all proud to know this wonderful lady and to see her art on a regular basis.   Thus it was no surprise when around a hundred of her friends and family came out to welcome her this evening at a special party arranged in her honour by Charlotte and friends.

Keith paid tribute to Mags in his opening address and gave us an insight into the world in which she is competing.  Then the Mayor, Nicolette Botha Guthrie, lauded Mags and the honour that she brings to our community, after which Mags told us about her trip to London and the wonderful experience and excitement of her achievement.

The evening was rounded off with snacks and drinks and the cutting of a magnificent cake made by Christine.  It was an event which will live long in the memories of all her friends.  We are truly proud of you and know that you will go from strength to strength!

    Muchas gratias for enabling me to pop in and view the medal winner and her fan club from afar, Ronnie. I’m perched on the NW cusp of the Australian continent in beautiful Broome (where they grow the biggest south sea pearls) and have so enjoyed immersing my eyes in Margi’s Fernkloof ‘do.’ Baie dankie and thanks for allowing my Dad to pass this on to me in my distant outpost. We are all so proud and happy for Margi. Claire Furniss
