Plans for 2018

One major focus will be to collate all of the data about the former Ballito stocking factory and to extend our knowledge where appropriate, including further recollections (including its social and sports clubs and the former Smallford sports ground). The team also aim to create a definitive article on Fleetville and Camp districts for inclusion on Wikipedia.
