Brand Pretorius, manager of Wolmaransstad Home relates: ‘We noticed that some of the residents have a need for caring for a pet; hence we decided on putting up a bird cage.
There are two cages â€“ one with lovebirds in it and one with little doves and smaller little quails in it. Mr Gerrit Schutte, a member of the advisory board, donated a cage with budgies in it. We built a road right around the cage so that it is also accessible to wheelchairs. The local VLU (Vroue Landbou Unie) ladies donated a bench and a table en chairs. The residents really enjoy it thorough to go and sit there and watch the little birds.’
