Message from Jacques Stoltz
It’s proving to be a busy year at the Heritage Association of South Africa (HASA). Two special occasions have been held to recognise 2017 HASA award winners Dr Janette Deacon and Rina Wiid. We’ve also made formal submissions to Heritage Western Cape regarding the draft Western Cape Heritage Resources Management Bill and we have supported a petition of the Rosebank Action Group made to the Provincial Heritage Resources Authority Gauteng regarding a worrisome decision that flies in the face of the National Heritage Resources Act.
In this newsletter, we provide an update on the sale of the Macrorie House Museum in KZN to which HASA is a party. Most exciting of all is our next heritage symposium which will take place in Barberton in October. Barberton is home to South Africa’s newest world heritage site – so we are particularly pleased with our choice of venue. As in previous years, we call for nominations for the Simon van der Stel awards.
We look forward to seeing you in Barberton.
