Seamen reunite

Former Safmarine seamen, from left, are Ikey Wiener, Sharckey Harvey, Paul Frantz, Ronald Cornelius, Ismail Waga, Robert Nicholson, Roy Romero and Valentino Clarke.

Former Safmarine seamen and their families are having an “entertainment” bring and braai, at South Peninsula Sports Field, Rooikrans Avenue, Grassy Park, on Friday February 4. This initiative was planned after a successful reunion, at Nantes Park, Silvertown, on November 26. The former seamen from different areas, such as Grassy Park, Lotus River, Seawinds, Mitchell’s Plain and Blue Downs, have many stories to tell and chairman Ikey Wiener said there are many more former Safmarine seamen who will have the opportunity to share their experiences. Entertainment includes karaoke and dancing, and there will also be prizes up for grabs. Contact Ikey at 082 970 5207 for more information.
