Home and gar­den tour


The range of gar­dens and homes on show at the North­ern South­land Spring House and Gar­den Tour will give peo­ple plenty of in­spi­ra­tion to try some­thing new at home.

Or­gan­iser Mar­garet Christie said the tour in­cludes di­verse gar­dens and dif­fer­ent home styles so there will be some­thing for ev­ery­one.

‘‘We are thrilled peo­ple from the lo­cal com­mu­nity have gen­er­ously of­fered their fab­u­lous gar­dens in so many dif­fer­ent styles in­clud­ing for­mal, cottage, new and es­tab­lished gar­dens.

‘‘Along with the gar­dens the homes will be open for view­ing, show­cas­ing new home builds, home ren­o­va­tions, a log home and a hallto-home make-over. ‘‘

The fundraiser is be­ing held to con­trib­ute to run­ning costs of the Moss­burn Com­mu­nity Pool.

‘‘We are ex­tremely proud of the won­der­ful pool fa­cil­i­ties this area owns, built through lo­cal fundrais­ing.’’ The pool is open each year from Labour week­end un­til just af­ter Easter and so­lar heat­ing was added re­cently to help re­duce run­ning costs. Stu­dents at the nearby school use it daily in sea­son for swim­ming lessons.

Tick­ets for the Home and Gar­den tour on Sun­day Novem­ber 12 are $35, which in­cludes a boxed lunch, avail­able from Bracken Hall at Moss­burn from 11am.
