At The Repertory Players’ Annual General Meeting on Sunday April 11, new members and office bearers were elected onto the Executive Committee.

Please give them all your support and encouragement, as well as your ideas and suggestions.

In addition, Christine Sandford agreed to be co-opted onto Exco and to take on chairmanship of Social Events.

A strategic planning seminar is to be held soon, from which will flow a plan of action for the coming year. Key to deliberations will be planning on: (a) increasing patronage of the two theatres, (b) increasing revenue in the bars and from social events, and(c) identifying and tapping into additional areas of income generation. In doing this, there must be an accent on enjoyment and the continued pursuit of the theatrical excellence for which Reps has become known.

You may also wish to know that a new committee for Repteens was recently elected, made up of:

Kuzivakwashe Muvezwa – Chairman

Meredith Render – Vice Chairman

Peter Blackburn, Tristan Charnley and Fraser Flight – committee members

Kyla Render remains the co-ordinator of Repteens.

Reps, with its many different facets and features, is a great society made up of many talented and hardworking people, with an amazing tradition dating back 80 years and it is the new committee’s objective to make it even greater and to ensure financial strength.

Thank you


FAREWELL KEEGAN LANGLEY Keeg's is Flying Well after a journey after two years and an endless fight all day long, Keegs finally left us at 4:10 this afternoon. The last hour was the toughest, but it was a privilege and a special feeling for us all to be there for his last breath. So the legend has been laid to rest, and he is now flying in a massive stoop, cutting the air with his primaries and vocalising with the exhilaration. How great it will be to walk, talk and be pain free. My thanks for everyone, the journey is full circle. Keegs was on loan to us for 2 years and 5 days. What a journey - no breaks, no easy ride..... He has been cast from the glove, and now flies free, no longer at hack. Total peace and release. Fly free Keegie boy, Sal, Ade, Drew and Bryn

Rosa York

The York, Birchall, Smith and Leanders families mourn the passing of a grand old lady, Rosa York, our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother . While we respect the need for her to shed her weary body, her wise counsel, wily wit and sparkle that kept us laughing all her days, will be sorely missed.


The funeral service for Rosa Elizabeth York will be held at the Church of

Ascension in Leander Avenue, Hillside at 2.30 on Thursday 14 April 2011.

Friends kindly accept this intimation.


Granny Rosa has died.

On Friday morning, in Bulawayo a legend passed away.

Rosa Elizabeth York (nee Rosenfels) was born on Lydeard Farm, Marula on 10th October 1923, the first born of nine children to pioneer Sigmund Julius Rosenfels (born in the Bulawayo lager in 1896) and 1909 settler Evelyn Lois Rosenfels (nee Shone).

Rosa married well known Matabeleland cattle rancher Eric Rupert York - twice winner of the coveted "Thousand Guinea Gold Trophy". They were married for 38 years and brought 5 children into the wonderful farming world at Marula and Figtree in Southern Matabeleland.

Rosa was an extremely talented needlewoman with a special talent in

embroidery, she described herself as ' painting with a needle'.

Rosa was chairlady, committee member, and member of the Home Industries

Section of the Bulawayo Agricultural Society for many years.

The Rosenfels / York / Mann / Birchall / Smythe / Viljoen / Smith / Shone / Greeff families formed an entire community on the edge of the fertile

Matopos Hills where the community once stretched into many dozens of

parents, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Farewell to Rosa - sadly the end of an era but surely the beginning of a new one.

"When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the

founders of human civilization." --Daniel Webster

For those of you who have not heard, Mike Campbell passed away yesterday. Mike and his family were featured in the film 'Mugabe and the White African'. He never fully recovered from the injuries he sustained from the beating he received from Mugabe's thugs upon his return from the SADC Tribunal. Our thoughts go out to the family.



Mike Campbell died peacefully on the afternoon of Wednesday 6 April after

nearly 3 years fighting for his health. He died surrounded by his family

and at peace with God and with man.

He will be remembered for his courageous fight for justice for all in


His funeral will be held on De Rus farm in Chegutu at 11 am on Saturday 9

April. Can friends please bring a plate of snacks.



MIKE CAMPBELL - Mt Carmel Farm, Chegutu

The JAG Team with deep regret bids farewell to an outstanding and principled

member of our beleaguered farming community. Mike was at the very forefront

of the battle for Justice in Zimbabwe and was a courageous example of fine

leadership and achievement to us all.

He has left behind a lasting legacy for all Zimbabweans in the form of his

benchmark judgment achieved out of the SADC Tribunal, which will in time

benefit all Zimbabweans, not just farmers.

The JAG Team wishes to express its sincere condolences to the Campbell and

Freeth families. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this tragic


Mike we know has gone to meet his Maker with all his principles intact and

his head held high. Rest in Eternal Peace, Mike.

"No greater sacrifice can a man make than to lay down his life for his
