Big ups to the Shams and their owners πŸ‘

A lot of generous support from friends, family, clients and trainers made this donation of food and chicken parcels possible for all the Vaal grooms. Pick n Pay Vanderbijl SE8 came to the party by putting these parcels together at a discounted price . Thanks Lyndsey and staff...
Our grooms are in complete lockdown voluntarily at the Vaal but it's been hard for them too being away from families. A small way of showing our appreciation...

Hi Durbs, the grooms are Self Isolating together ( like a house hold )

Definitely for the better Bob.
I know the Shams just wanted to show their appreciation for what their friends,family and clients did.

It may look like we not practicing social distancing but it was for photos only. Please understand that these guys all stay in the Vaal hostel . Temperatures are taken and recorded daily. Over this lockdown period only 3 grooms have crept over the fence and were then not allowed back in by their compatriots.

This is the nicest bunch of hardworking chaps you could find. Also all have masks provided by the trainers. The request was made to take off the masks so that their families could see the photos.

This is a hard time for all South Africans and most are doing their best to cope with all kinds of hardships. It’s upsetting that when we try and do something positive and happy there has to be the negative person to bring us back to earth.

Mark it was not meant to be negative.
This pandemic is very,very serious and we should not be taking any unnecessary risks no matter what.
I'm sure they all nice people but if you want to take photos of a group of people,keep social distancing and keep your masks on.
The grooms have cellphones and could send a selfie to their families if they wanted.

So, if all " negative people are all living and working together, and not going anywhere, why the need for distancing??

Common sense needs to prevail. I'm not self isolating from my wife, but if we travel together, then she has to sit at the back!!

Sometimes it feels like we are being tested to see just how "manageable" we are. Hence the pushback happening in some countries.
