Residents’ hands busy
Biggenden MPHS residents have had a productive show season across the Burnett
THE display board in the resident’s dining room at the Biggenden Multi Purpose Health Service is now overflowing with prize cards.
At the recent Biggenden Show the residents entered 104 entries in the various classes including craft, cooking flowers, floral art and vegetables.
Recreational officer Michelle Kinbacher said the residents had bagged 59 prizes along with two championships.
“These were for their jam and chrysanthemums,” she said.
“They were so excited about the wins and received the Glenda Brockway Memorial Trophy for most points in one of the sections.”
With their prizemoney the residents will purchase some more roses for their gardens.
Mrs Kinbacher said they would also invest in some quality cake tins for their future cooking.
Resident, Marj Rollinson said everything was a team effort.
“I really enjoy the interaction with other residents during the cooking,” she said.
Fellow resident Keith Weinholz likes making jam and pickles.
“I also enjoy doing the stirring and watching the how it turns out,” he said.
After a week’s spell, the residents are busy this week making a pumpkin fruit cake and a steamed pudding for the upcoming Teebar Show.
