The Garage Sale had an amazing turn out of helpers, and there is no way that we would have been able to cope without everyone involved. We raised just over a whopping $5000 for the hospital and cannot thank our helpers enough – these ranged from Hospital Staff, Trustees, Pohlen Pals, members of the public and the wonderful Dalton’s Daisies who did an outstanding cake stall.

Our Real Homes & Gardens Tour Committee put in HOURS of work to make sure that the event ran as seamlessly as it did – thanks to Liz Atherton, Judith Challis, Joce Hoebergen, Di Louch & Arlene Swap – these ladies worked tirelessly over a number of months to make sure that the event was what it was. However a massive thanks must go to all 10 of the homeowners that agreed to put their homes into the tour. They were all truly beautiful homes and gardens and the diversity between each of them made for an amazing and enjoyable day. Fortunately the weather held out for us, and although the day was a little cool and blustery it was still very enjoyable.

There was a selection of the wonderful prizes from the Real Homes & Gardens Tour of Matamata and Di Louch, Lady Margaret Spring & Joce Hoebergen drew out the lucky prize winners.
