Our name “Boksburg Hiking Club” was adopted during the first official Committee meeting.
Boksburg Hiking Club was born in March 1991 when a meeting was arranged by Andre Steyn (Founder Member) and held at the old Magistrate’s building (the Court House) in Church Street, Boksburg. A whole 3 people attended. A month later, attendance had swelled to 7 people! More and more people started responding to weekly notices in the Boksburg Advertiser, growing to 12, then 14 and eventually 21 members in the space of a short few months.
The first Committee consisted of · Hans van der Westhuizen (Chairman) · Andre Steyn (Secretary) · Conley Annandale (Executive Member) · Madelaine Annandale (Treasurer) · Willie Liebenberg (Executive Member)
We Are Growing
BHC has grown from strength to strength, manymembers joining through “word of mouth” and hiking experiences shared with members of the Club. We naturally continue to advertise through local papers. We partake in all sorts of activities from hiking to holiday camps, kayaking to cultural-outings, parties to picnics, birding to braaing … the list is endless and we are willing to try out any form of good clean and healthy fun activities suggested by the members of the Club. Support is given to Charitable events (such as Cancer-atholons) and other nature loving & caring societies (such as Friends of Suikerbosrand) by our members and friends, through donations or participation.
