PHOTO GALLERY: Vryheid Tourism – Expanding together to make AbaQulusi great

Mama Yaka opened the meeting with a scripture reading and prayer.

ELEANOR Roosevelt is quoted as saying, “True hospitality consists of giving the best of yourself to your guests.”

Given the thriving tourism industry in AbaQulusi, it would appear that locals in the hospitality trade are living up to these words as they play host to visitors from afar who find themselves overnighting in our historically rich neck of the woods.

Vryheid Tourism recently hosted a product holders’ meeting, where roleplayers within the industry came together to exchange views on the future of Vryheid Tourism and celebrate the close of another year of warmth and enthusiasm for the prosperity of the town as a tourist destination.

“Dear friends of Tourism,” writes Alet Swanepoel, “Thank you for attending the Vryheid Tourism meeting at Andrea’s Guesthouse [on Wednesday, November 1]. A special word of appreciation to Ria and her staff for hosting the meeting and for their hospitality. Thanks to the Vryheid Herald for contributing in a positive way to tourism. A word of appreciation to LED Manager, Mr MZ Kunene and Mr G Röhrs who tabled the draft Abaqulusi Tourism Development Strategy 2017 and plan.”

“No matter how experienced you are at business, everyone can learn,” she added. “Working in a small business venture can often be isolating and, without exposure to a variety of points of view, we can miss new ideas and trends that can impact future results.”

“Have fun,” concluded Alet, “Being in business should be rewarding and fun.”

Among several other valuable points laid out by Cllr Kunene at the meeting, the message that resonated most profoundly with regard to the growth and promotion of tourism in AbaQulusi was this, “Let’s not shrink,” he stated strongly, “let us expand… together.”
