The Department of Rural Development buffet lunch took place at the Durban Ice Arena. This multi-purpose venue successfully seated 850 people. The venue was completely transformed from an ice skating rink to a lunch venue with waiters and easily accessible buffet stations setup all around the rink. This event took place on the 29th and 30th of August 2016. The next day, 31st August 2016, the venue was ready for our daily ice skating public sessions that take place.
