Three cheers for our volunteers.
Last weekend saw Burra, Farrell Flat and Hallett busy with the large number of visitors to our area for Open Gardens weekend. Cafes in Burra were pretty well standing room only with visitors staying from Adelaide and surrounding areas including the Barossa Valley The mid north people came out in force to support us from Clare, Jamestown, Port Pirie, Laura Wirrabara, Gladstone, Crystal Brook and Peterborough. I'm sure I've missed some towns, if so I apologise and thank you to all who came.
Helen Carmody Worked tirelessly as our co-ordinator, a huge job. her commitment was
outstanding giving up so much of her own time for our event.
Lis Jones-Ingman As previous co-ordinator Lis' help and advice was invaluable.
Sally Fieldhouse Hard working representative for Farrell Flat.
Felicity Kent Media and PR, another busy person.
Di Mackin Co-ordinator for signage and displays.
Felicity Martin Hard working Hallett representative.
Francis Walling Group member and meetings host.
The work done over the year by this group is something to be proud of, and combined with the beautifully tended gardens a truly memorable event was created. The passion and enthusiasm the group has for open gardens makes it a pleasure to be involved. Plans are afoot for next year already.
Thank you to all those who helped, no matter how small the contribution we appreciate any help offered. A special thank you to everyone in our group for going that extra mile just to make sure the job is done properly.
