Gar­den tour a suc­cess

Manawatu Guardian - - NEWS - EL­IZ­A­BETH SHEARER

The in­au­gu­ral CBC Gar­den Tour held at be­gin­ning of this month was a great suc­cess, with over 500 peo­ple vis­it­ing up to 17 prop­er­ties through­out the city. Visi­tors came from all around the re­gion and the North Is­land.

There were even two UK hol­i­day­mak­ers. On the day, nearly 150 vol­un­teers and prop­erty hosts were in­volved.

De­spite the slightly damp weather con­di­tions dur­ing part of the day, the un­de­terred visi­tors treated the day as an ad­ven­ture and were wowed by stun­ning gar­dens, home in­te­ri­ors or fas­ci­nat­ing hobby in­ter­ests.

Thank you to those peo­ple who took the time to com­mu­ni­cate their thanks for the op­por­tu­nity to visit the venues. On be­half of Palmer­ston North Cen­tral Bap­tist Church, we would like to thank the venue hosts for their in­volve­ment and hos­pi­tal­ity, the peo­ple who pur­chased tick­ets, the ticket sales out­lets of Oder­ings and Smart Ex­change, the sales ven­dors and dis­play artists.

This com­mu­nity fundrais­ing event pro­vided many other pos­i­tive spin-offs and we sin­cerely thank the Manawatu¯ Guardian for your in­ter­est.
