Gar­den Club Spring and Rose Flower Show

Dubbo Photo News - - In focus -

OUR Gar­den Club Spring and Rose Flower Show was held at Bren­nan’s Mitre 10 Store on the week­end of the 14 & 15 of Oc­to­ber. The un­kind weather to both farm­ers and Gar­den­ers alike made for a much smaller show. With the sup­port and help from club members and Mitre 10 man­age­ment and staff we had a great dis­play. The Raf­fle do­nated by Bren­nan’s was won by Rita Dick­er­son. Our most suc­cess­ful ex­hibitor was Bev and Phill Good, the Cham­pion Rose: Carol Tink, Cham­pion cut Flower: Pushpa Jeysaleen, Cham­pion Pot Plant: Joan Camp­bell, and Cham­pion Dec­o­ra­tive: Kay Ben­nett. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all who en­tered whether you won or not you help make the show a suc­cess. Your par­ents can be ashamed of you.

to Lan­g­ley’s Coaches for the re­cent Tassie High­lights tour. Ex­cel­lent in every way. Cheerful, friendly, help­ful. Ter­rific in every way. More like a big fam­ily out­ing.

to Fay Gravau for all your char­ity work you’ve done at Bracken House over the years.

the weather – ev­ery­thing else was won­der­ful.


up to Buniny­ong Butch­ery for the great cus­tomer ser­vice and fab­u­lous meat.


Thumbs down to Dubbo Re­gional Coun­cil – you would think you could do a hot wash and clean up the foot­path at the Buniny­ong Shop­ping Cen­tre.

'Thumbs down

to Coles Su­per­mar­ket who I don’t blame for not want­ing their gro­cery trol­lies left around the streets of Dubbo but would it be pos­si­ble to at least show their cus­tomers the cour­tesy to push their laden trol­lies across to the other side of the main street with­out lock­ing up. Think about it.

&Thumbs up

to Sonya Hogan who or­gan­ised a won­der­ful hol­i­day for us. It was more than we ex­pected and was ex­cel­lent ser­vice. If you are think­ing of trav­el­ling give Sonya a call. Thanks again, from the group.

to the young girl at the Op­tus Shop at Orana Mall who helped me with my bill on Fri­day, Oct 27. I had rang Op­tus three times on my phone which they still didn’t re­spond to my prob­lem. So I de­cided to go to the shop and let them ring for me. The young girl at the shop and rang them and she got my bill re­duced down to what I could af­ford to pay. Thank you from the bot­tom of my heart, you are an an­gel.
