Thank you for all of your sup­port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THE Port Dou­glas Com­mu­nity Gar­den would like to thank all the spon­sors, sup­pli­ers and sup­port­ers of Satur­day’s gar­den fes­ti­val.

The en­tire Dou­glas and wider com­mu­nity was in­vited and we wish to thank those who chose to par­tic­i­pate and for the 1200 or so peo­ple who at­tended through­out the day for mak­ing it a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

Re­ly­ing on just on the gen­eros­ity of lo­cal busi­nesses, com­mit­ted vol­un­teers and the re­sources of the Neigh­bour­hood Cen­tre, the goal of en­gag­ing the peo­ple of this unique and iconic area we call home was cer­tainly achieved.

In part­ner­ship with the Clink Theatre, who also ben­e­fited greatly from the free en­ter­tain­ment we pro­vided, our group was able to raise close to $5000 to as­sist in the con­struc­tion of grow­ing our fruit and vegetable gar­den some time later this year.

If Satur­day’s suc­cess is any­thing to go by, we hope that, just like our gar­den, this fes­ti­val will grow with the years, to help nur­ture and pro­vide a greater chance of a hap­pier and health­ier liv­ing com­mu­nity for gen­er­a­tions to come.

Thanks again to all in­volved, we hope you had fun, and we look for­ward to do­ing it all again next year.

Happy days: Shane Branch of Hi­bis­cus Re­sort presents the ma­jor gar­den fes­ti­val prize to Liz Ross
