CapeTalk reconnects long lost friends

Bev and Dianne are both CapeTalk listeners. But they have more in common than just that.

As it turns out, both ladies were boarding pupils at Francshoek High School (and the best of friends) many years ago.

Its been years and years and years. We matriculated in 1970, so you can imagine how long it has been. Francshoek was a small school in those days and I remember always being together with Beverly.

Dianne, long lost friend

On Thursday Pippa Hudson was discussing school dinners, when Bev called in to share her fond memories of the melkkos from her days as a boarder at Francshoek High.

Not long after that, we received an SMS from Dianne, asking if we could put her in touch with Bev, as she was also a boarder at Francshoek High and was hoping it was her long lost friend.

The rest, as they say, is history...
