The winter cold was but a distant memory when the FABI Social Club hosted an ice cream party in celebration of the Institute’s annual Spring Tea on 5 September. Whether you prefer plain vanilla in a bowl or you like mixing different flavours with an array toppings, FABIans were spoiled for choice with tubs of ice cream and sorbet on ice. As FABIans enjoyed the warm morning under a clear blue sky, they also spared a thought for the elderly residents of Huis Silversig in Silverton. Staff and students brought along flowers and potted plants for the residents of the home, some of whom are wheelchair bound or bedridden and cannot enjoy the warmth and beauty of spring from their rooms.
