Tauranga Garden & Art Festival 2010

We were thrilled to be apart of another Garden and Art festival. We were very fortunate with the weather this year. Thanks goes out to everyone who supported us. Wendy Milward did another fantastic job of the platters, making everything from scratch. Paula managed everything in her usual outstanding way, thanks also to all my friends who helped with serving wine and food and who really got into the spirit of the event. Thanks to Myra and Eileen, the two wise old owls who provided homebaking and kept the kitchen in order. Louise and Peter who maintained and organised the grounds and garden and the following companies who provided the following: Fusion for the coffee, Somerset Cottage for the use of their crockery, Bethlehem Butchery for the sirloin steak, Ian Duncalf for his Rock in Roll Alstroemeria's (flowers), Moi Agencies for the pepperdews and Peter Johnson for delivering the coolstore.

Also a special thanks to Doreen McNeill for her beautiful artwork. It truly looked stunning on display in the showroom.

We had alot of satisfaction in seeing everyone relaxing and enjoying the garden and each other's company and we were proud to raise $1000 for the Waipuna Hospice.
