Verklaring deur Burgemeester Gesie van Deventer

Die La Motte gemeenskap, net buite Franschhoek, het die wonderlike kersgeskenk ontvang van ‘n nuut opgeknapte gemeenskapsaal. Die bestaande saal moes twee jaar gelede gesluit word omdat die gebruik daarvan onveilig was. Na baie harde werk, is die La Motte Gemeenskapsaal ten volle gerestoureer en is dit nou die trots van die klein bosbou gemeenskap.
