Westlife @ Irene

Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>,

Spring has sprung and we’ve started making the most of it in Irene, out and about in the Dairy farmyard from the very first day of the season. We plan to keep the vibrancy going all month long! If you missed our bright and early Jacaranda FM Braai Off that happened on the Farm on the 1st of September, never fear, because we’ll be getting all the braais and tongs out every Saturday during the summer.

As I mentioned, the Irene Farm played host to Jacaranda FM and the Just Plain Breakfast Team on the 1st of September for the Spar Tender and Tasty Braai competition. Two hundred braaiers came out in full (and very interesting) regalia to see whose chops tasted the best. They were accompanied by the Just Plain Breakfast team broadcasting live from the farmyard. Despite a slight chill in the early morning, the day quickly took off to be a truly lovely way to bring in the new season. An unexpected and wonderful extra of the day was some of the braaiers, and Jacaranda FM itself, donating large amounts of braai food, and R5000 to Irene Homes, the local home for the mentally disabled. You can find a full album of photos from the event on the Irene Dairy Farm’s Facebook page.

Moving on to the finer (but no less tasty) things happening, African Pride Irene Country Lodge played host to a number of celebrities during the past few months. The music group “Westlife” made Irene their home for a week during September, whilst shooting their latest and now seems to be their last music album that will be released on the 15th of November. They also did a live performance at Jacaranda 94.7 Deuriemikke Concert at Super sport Park. To see some photos of the band during their stay and read more click here… 

Another local celebrity to visit our haven of peace and tranquility is well-known television and radio personality, Sam Cowen, she and her family experienced a family fun weekend with a picnic at the Irene Diary Farm, click for photos of their stay, or to read more about this package click here…

 Former Idols winner Elvis Blue, decided to treat his beautiful wife, Cherize, to a Romantic Rendezvous before his live performance at Idols 2011, leaving the little one at home and taking the evening off to relax. The Blues enjoyed the amazing Evening under the Stars event that happens every Saturday night in the Meadow Green restaurant with piano melodies from “Nora Jones” as back ground music, to see some photos of their stay click here… 

The beautiful Joanne Ramagoshi former Ms. South Africa and her husband decided to make use of the hotel to relax before the little one joined the family, one would not even say she is expecting as she looks stunning as usual. The couple enjoyed a relaxing afternoon at Camdeboo day Spa and stayed over in the lodge’s superior rooms situated in the forest. “One does not feel like you are in Gauteng” says Ramagoshi on check out as you are so hidden away being in the forest.

 Minister of Sport, Fikile Mbalula, enjoyed his 40thBirthday at SAX Arena during October and this was really an event not too be missed as the guest list really included the who’s who of society attending this event. The evening’s entertainment, which was equally eclectic, it kicked off with a performance from the Motswako String Quartet and platinum-selling Zahar, local R&B singer Malik and DJ’s Oskido and Tbo-Touch really made the evening a success. Sunday times posted an article about this event to read more click here…

Several other amazing things happened during these past month, but as there is so much to add I have decided to start a blog and called it Destination Irene as those of you who have been here know there is so much to do in around the village of Irene and lately so much is happening as it is really becoming a well-known destination. So over the next few months I will be trying to find out as much as I can about our little village and let know. Subscribe to my blog and stay up to date…
