14TH APRIL 2001 CHARLES, SHIRLEY, EMILY & ANDY MAST

Charles and Shirley married on 30th November 1985. Emily was born 24th August 1989 followed by Andy on 15th June 1991. We live in the lovely town of Somerset West near Cape Town with our two black Labradors and two cats. We have a wonderful home on a large property which is next door to Charles's mum & dad's new home.

Charles began his career dairy farming - at Meynell Estate & Denmar Dairy in Orange Free State, as well as Vergelegen Estates Somerset West. After 6 years of relentless early mornings, he decided to start his own business concentrating on his hobby of woodwork. In 1988 The Woodbender was started - at first the focus was on "cottage furniture" and later it developed into a specialised wood bending factory manufacturing restaurant seating and tables. Charles had the privilege of having his dad, John join him in 1990 and since then they have grown the business to what it is today.

As a family we enjoy camping at Theewaterskloof Dam where we have access to wonderful facilities and enjoy various water activities. Charles enjoys "Footup Trials" riding as his winter sport- a form of 4x4 motorcycle riding - and Andy is starting to enjoy this pastime with his dad. We love restoring old things and our next project are two Morris Minor Travellers.

Emily & Andy attend Beaumont Primary school where they are in Grade 6 and 4 respectively. Emily enjoys Irish Dancing as a hobby and Andy enjoys Rugby.
