Heritage Day and the onset of Spring were celebrated by a walk round Amberglen. The route passed along cottage gardens and through the savannah grassland. One pair dressed as dog and owner, while several real dogs walked on leads. A refreshment station was set up with water from our borehole. The event was organized by the Social Committee and was followed by a braai at Laggan Waters.
