WELCOME TO MEELBROEKE

Are you ready to take the leap?


Who would have thought.

Who would have thought that a flu like none other before would bring the world to its knees.  So quickly and devastating.  So totally creeping into society, not overseeing anyone.  Suddenly there is no difference in social status, no difference in age, political views, skin colour or religion.  It affects us all.  Equally.    Who […]

MEEL EN SUURDEEG

Die jaar spoed voort teen ‘n tempo wat algaande vinniger word. Aan die begin van elke jaar staan ons voor ‘n magdom besluite wat ons moet neem. Maer word om in dáárdie Meelbroek of Meelrokkie te pas, geldjies opsysit om hierdie of daardie spesiale item te koop, na watter skool of kleuterskool my kind moet […]

2020

En toe ons ons oë uitvee, het ons 2020 visie!  Kersfees is verby, ons is boots & all binne-in die nuwe jaar, sommer ‘n lekker ronde getal, dit val maklik op die tong, skryf lekker en ons oueres sal dit sonder moeite onthou! Dit is ook nou ‘n goeie tyd om julle voor te stel […]

THE MEELBROEK STORY

Meelbroeke has many stories, from different timeframes and different countries, to different people and now also different prints and more styles.
