Hi Jen
I went to Pafuri picnic site on the 28th and as promised went to have a look if I could find the bench...
I couldn't find it and asked Frank if he knew where I could find it.
He knew exactly what I was talking about and said they delivered the bench the previous week but didn't send the correct spanner with to assemble it (which would have been the next day)
He showed me on a hand drawn map where the bench was going to be set up and then took me to the spot...
Here are some pics taken from the spot the bench is standing now.

The map... The bench is the star on the left of the the word river

If you would like me to mail you the original photo's you can just pm me your email address.

Hope it helps! I must say they do have an awesome view...

At least thanks to you 'mites and the help of a very nice person Michelle :gflower: , I could finalize my project for my dear friend.
I will have a memory bench erected soon in the Pafuri picnic spot .
I was pleased to learn right now , it reopened (thanks Albert :thumbs_up: )
I will go and see this bench at the end of july this year
You can imagine I'm longing for this moment and I'm please at the same time to contribute to this nicest picnic spot reconstruction. :D
