Ruther­glen’s gar­dens on dis­play

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

The Gar­dens Round the Glen event was a huge suc­cess ear­lier this month.

The Ruther­glen and Dis­trict Gar­den Club would like to thank Des and An­nette Sheri­dan, Gus and Jean Kingston, Michael and Tr­ish Lethbridge, Corowa Tree of Life Com­mu­nity Gar­den, Wendy and Bill Cham­bers, Christine and Ian Grimes, Irina Web­ster and Val Buller - the own­ers of the gar­dens opened on November 5 for the Gar­dens Round the Glen.

The hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of all the gar­den­ers was re­flected in the qual­ity of the gar­dens which were all very well pre­sented.

The fact that all the gar­dens were very dif­fer­ent to each other was ap­pre­ci­ated by the vis­i­tors and many com­pli­ments were re­ceived.

Lunches were well re­ceived as were morn­ing and af­ter­noon teas.

A great num­ber of plants were sold from the club’s plant stall and thanks go to the hard work­ing mem­bers man­ning that stall.

Thank you to all the Gar­den Club mem­bers who gave up their days to man gates.

Raf­fle win­ners in­cluded Andrew Irv­ing in first place, Shirley Crosthwaite in sec­ond and Gwyn­neth in third. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all win­ners.

Gus and Jean Kingston’s gar­den was among one of the open gar­dens at the Gar­dens Round the Glen event.
