The first public event to mark the 175th anniversary of Howick and the districts took place on Saturday – just hours before the country learned it was heading for a Covid-19 red light.

The Botany & Flat Bush Ethnic Association held a well-attended day-long celebration at the Uxbridge Theater which began with a get-together followed by cultural performances and entertainment culminating in the association’s annual meeting.

The association promotes health and well-being by addressing the cultural diversity of the region.

“The idea is to work towards caring and harmony as well as inclusiveness,” said the association’s founder, Peter Young, who is also a local council member in Howick.

“We organized a plethora of activities ranging from yoga sessions to Tai Chi, a number of wellness talks, cooking demonstrations, art and music.”

The group will participate in nine events for the celebrations of the 175th anniversary of Howick and the district.
