King George VI Celebrations & History

I have been looking through some old musty papers here at KGVI and seeing all the names of people who have either attended the Centre or helped over the years. So many of the old Bulawayo families mentioned from the very early 1950s when the Misses Rhodes laid the foundation stone, then when the Queen Mother opened the centre. We even have boxes of photos from way back and I found the Chronicle supplement for the 25th Celebrations for KGVI. This was sponsored by so many companies, many of them still around today like Naakes, C Gauche, Dae-Nite, Smart & Copley, Stevensons, Geddes but some that seem to have disappeared like DIT Prosthetics, Bogdans, Johnstones, Eli's Services, Thelwalls Garage. Perhaps some of your readers can throw some light on this time August 1979. This same article mentioned one of the first pupils Sandra James who represented Rhodesia and won several medals in paraplegic games. What can anyone tell us about her or any other pioneer pupils?

On 28 March I attended a very enjoyable celebration for Archer Clothing's 50th anniversary and so many people approached me and said my sister/cousin/ uncle or whoever used to go to KGVI. Surely some of them must still be around or their families. We would love to have some of these early KGVI 'pioneers' come and join us for our lunch on Saturday 7 July. Wouldn't it be great to have someone to represent each of the 50 years. Please help us by contacting anyone you know who used to be connected to KGVI and ask them to contact us on 230434/5 or my direct line 255323.

Don't forget the two shows in the evening on Saturday 7 and in the afternoon on Sunday 8 at the Bulawayo Theatre. Tickets will be on sale from June.

BULAWAYAN LECTURE SERIES

Need something new to occupy about an hour of your evening? Costs nothing! Happens once a month for the next eight months! Diarise Thursday 12 April, at 17.00 for 17.30.

Be at the Natural History Museum at 17.30 sharp, for the first of a series of talks given by local professionals. They are passionate about their study areas, and wish to share some of what they have discovered with the people of Bulawayo.

The first talk in this series will be given by Mr Pathisa Nyathi, a notable local historian and spokesperson for the Bulawayo City Council. His field of expertise is Ndebele History and Culture. Mr Nyathi has had several books published. Come look, listen and maybe learn a little something you didn't know about our history and heritage.
On 10 May, another talk will be given by Mr Simon Makuvaza on the investigation and restoration of Old Bulawayo.
For any further information, please contact:

Warm greetings from Rome. The Bishops of Zimbabwe released their Pastoral letter in response to the grave situation in that country. I, having lived and worked in Zimbabwe, fully believe that Bishops are writing with and from the authority of experience. Please join the faithful for the National day of Fasting and Repentance set for the 14th April 2007 as well as services every Friday. Below is the prayer for our beloved country:

PRAYER FOR OUR COUNTRY

God Our Father, You have given all peoples one common origin, And your will is to gather them as one family in yourself. Give compassion to our leaders, integrity to our citizens, and repentance to us all. Fill the hearts of all women and men with your love And the desire to ensure justice for all their brothers and sisters. By sharing the good things you give us May we ensure justice and equality for every human being, An end to all division, and a human society built on love, Lasting prosperity and peace for all. We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Our Father Hail Mary Glory be to the Father

WE MADE A DIFFERENCE!

When I awoke on the morning of Saturday 31st March, the nightmare of a miserable day had come true. It was not long before the phone calls started, "Is it still on?" to which I replied, "Yes!" So everyone carried on with their duties, and the day went as planned. By 10.00am the sun started to show its face and we all gave sighs of relief! The `Help Make A Difference' Fund raise, was a huge success. Everyone who attended had a good time and kids all round had a ball! Although our volunteers where extremely busy, they too enjoyed the events that took place. Thanks to everyone involved, the day went smoothly, and wasn't even over by the time I left to go home, at 3.00am. Fifteen ladies in total shaved their heads, three of which only decided on the day, and many more men and children joined in too. Well-done baldies! Almost everything that we required for the day, was kindly donated, so we practically had a 100% profit. As all the funds have not yet been collected it is hard to give a total amount, but to date we have managed to raise over $50,000,000
THANK-YOU!
- To every one who attended: Without the good turn out, the day would have been a waste of time.
- All the volunteers: There were over 40 volunteers to help make the day a success! - All the donators: Many people and companies contributed to the products and equipment required. - MacDonald Sports Club: They could not have done more to accommodate us, before and during the fund raise. - Our 15 Bald chicks: Very brave but MAD! This event alone raised nearly half of the total amount!

S.O.A.P and The Cancer Association could not be more grateful for the efforts, and give a huge thank-you. Organising this event in our current climate, has made me realise that Bulawayo is a wonderful place to live! If we can do this together, we can do anything! As long as we help one another and stay a strong community.
Thanks to everyone for the support, Kerrie Smith.

OSTRICH EGGS REQUIRED PLEASE

I was a Grey Street Cowboy, but on a motor bike - in those days I had a Triumph Tiger Cub (200cc)[bought from John Love Motors in Fort Street around 14th Ave, if I remember rightly] and used to love going down Grey Street, particularly closer to 1st Avenue where the dips were closer together and one could get the bike to leave the ground and more or less miss the second dip. Great fun - somewhat dangerous though, not that we ever thought of that.

The poem by the RAF chap also rings a bell, but I think there was another one called "Bloody Bulawayo!!" which was of course not so complimentary.

Having been at Fairbridge, we had a lot of association with the RAF at Heany, for they used the Induna airfield for circuits and bumps. I personally used to spend weekends and school holidays with a family in the married quarters - my first experience of being inebriated and the next morning consequences was as a result of a visit to the Sergeant's Mess!! The family had a 28" bicycle and as my legs were not long enough to reach the pedals when over the cross bar I managed to master the art of riding it with my leg under the cross bar, in general leaning the bike out sideways as though it was going around a corner - never quite sure how I managed it, but rode all over Heany base till I knew it intimately; so a later visit in another uniform was not such a traumatic experience.

FATHER ODILO

I believe I own the readership a short explanation of my request in M.M. 233. Fr Odilo left a mountain of documents after his death in June of last year and the privilege of cataloguing and classifying them for ready access by prospective researchers in the future is a privilege which has come my way.
The photographs, papers and memorabilia make a Mt Inugu of material. To give a small insight into the task I have just worked through all the sermons for the 1960, 70s and 80'. But it all goes back to 1938! His interests and involvement reveal his many faceted talents..... astronomy, Rotary, the Matopos, and wild life and so on. Add all this to the founding of Missions, schools and rural hospitals, running a Parish and being the Superior of his Community for nearly a decade one discovers a heart and soul rooted in a deep love for Matabeleland. Thank you.

NEWS FROM ADRIENNE VERNEY formerly of R.B. C.

My daughter in law in Canberra Australia sent me a `link' to look at, and there was your article (Mirror 173) asking after `Sonia Hattin and Adrienne Verney'!!! What a surprise I had when I saw it. I think Wooty must have gone back to England. My last memory of him, was when I was organising a cooking demo with Wooty in the new Parkade and he made me cook a special omelette which he had just shown the audience every detail of just how to do it, and then called on me to repeat his performance. I was busy doing other things at the time and had not paid much attention. Well of course my egg almost landed on the floor when my pan caught fire, and most unfortunately my brother was there taking a picture of it all as evidence!!!

Yes, Sonia and I are both in S.A. I had Xmas with Sonia and her daughter Jane, in Franschoek last year and they are all very well! We get together when we can as Sonia is actually in Hermanus, and I have my own company which keeps me busy training senior management Media and Presentation training. So I am still working in the environment of `camera - lights & action'!

Whilst reading your web sight, I reflected on how wonderful it is to hear the `old humour' in spite of everything! We watch in horror at the news. Our love and thoughts go to all the special people still there, and know the madness has to stop.
I hope this year brings much joy, laughter and all that is wholesome and positive to all `in and from' Zim.
Best Wishes,
ADRIENNE VERNEY

Other
A friend has just sent me a copy of your 'Grey Street Cowboys', which prompted me to find your Bulawayo Mirror site.
I want to thank you so much for all your entertaining and interesting articles. They all do so much to bring back memories for all those displaced people. I was at Falcon, and have admitted to riding the Bumps of Bulawayo on and old Harley Davidson motorbike circa 1961.

I have also been/am involved with bringing back memories to people, and to this end have published a book called Rhodesian Memories, which is a conglomeration of stories and articles from about 100 contributors. The whole thing has brought me pleasure because of the people who have contacted me to say that they have enjoyed the nostalgia, and so I wanted to pass a little of that to you.
