The warmer winter has resulted in more visitors than usual to the gardens during what is usually a slow period. As a result, the forecast is that admission fees for the year will be higher than budgeted for. Operating expenses and staff costs are well contained with close monitoring. Capital expenditure is behind budget due to the timing of spending however is expected to be spent before the end of the financial year. FINANCIAL POSITION 2017/18 Q1 In R'000 MAR 2017
