The Tierpoort seniors were invited to play Bingo at Jabulani Lapa on 6 April.

Guests were welcomed with coffee and biscuits. Before the Bingo started, they had their regular ‘getting to know you’ talk. This month Linka Bruyns gave a fascinating talk on her life.

She was born in 1941 and grew up on a farm in the Karoo. Linka came to Pretoria to study art and met her late husband, well-known actor Jan Bruyns, and they moved to Tierpoort in 1966.

The Bingo game followed after Linka’s talk and winners received chocolates. There was a meal of spaghetti Bolognese and coleslaw with strawberry mousse, fruit and custard for pudding.
