Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

A ME­MO­RIAL gar­den ded­i­cated to a lo­cal teenager who died from meningo­coc­cal will open its doors to the pub­lic for a two-day fete.

Amanda Young was just 18 when she con­tracted meningo­coc­cal af­ter a 1997 row­ing re­gatta in Pen­rith and died shortly af­ter.

Her par­ents Barry and Lor­raine started the Amanda Young Foun­da­tion in her hon­our, with Amanda’s Gar­den es­tab­lished in 1998 and the gar­den fete in 2000.

As well as vis­i­tors be­ing able to re­lax in and en­joy the gar­den, the fete will also in­clude a range of plants and seedlings for sale, jams, sauces and fresh honey, stalls, food and drink and mu­sic from the Gos­nells Men’s Shed on Sun­day.

Amanda’s Gar­den Fete will be held on the cor­ner of Mar­garet Street and Mati­son Street, South­ern River, from 10am to 4.30pm on Oc­to­ber 27 and 28. En­try is $5 for adults and free for chil­dren.
