7 years and still going strong

Image7 years ago, I followed a dream and was guided to start an Holistic Fayre in the Northern Suburbs. Little did I know where I would be guided and the events that would follow.

In July 2007 we opened our doors for the first time in Durbanville. Exciting times lay ahead. Twenty Exhibitors signed up, and by 4pm we had over 200 visitors stream through our doors. Wow! What an achievement! We even had room for a drumming circle and Free Talks!

In July 2008 we celebrated our first birthday in Durbanville. By this stage, we were so busy, and we outgrew the hall, there no room for new Exhibitors and the public found the venue very cramped. So: by the end of 2008, we moved to our new and improved hall, in Bothasig.

Within a few month of transferring the Fayre to Bothasig, due to unforeseen circumstance, The Northern Suburbs Holistic Fayre together with 40 Exhibitors, moved temporarily to the little community hall in Edgemead for 6 months, and celebrated our 3rd birthday there. By Christmas 2009, we were back at our favourite hall, Bothasig.

Our 4th Birthday in 2010 saw the World Cup Soccer played in South Africa, and we celebrated it under the first rain that the Northern Suburbs Holistic Fayre ever experienced. The rain washed away all our old problems and gave birth to new ventures and experiences.

2011 saw the first of our now popular shows: Belly Dancing, Hula Hoop, Bollywood Dancing, Fire Dancing, Drumming Circle to mention but a few.

In 2012 the 20minute Free Talks were re-introduced at the Holistic Fayre. These talks have proved to be extremely popular and well attended.

Today , 2013, we celebrate our 7th Birthday – we have reached our 7th Heaven. Thanks to our hard work, we are proud to announce that 3 other new Holistic Fayres have opened in The Northern Suburbs, thus forcing us to change our name from Northern Suburbs Holistic Fayre to The Holistic Fayre, Bothasig. We are proud to be the catalyst in this new trend. We are proud to be the leaders and pioneers in breaking new ground in the Northern Suburbs by introducing wholesome living. We take this opportunity to wish the other Holistic Fayres everything of the best.

Long may we all prosper together. Together we can spread Love, Light, Harmony and Friendship.
