Hororata School Garden Tour


November 5th dawned bright and sunny making it a perfect day for garden lovers to view the six magnificent gardens on display as part of the Hororata Primary School’s Garden Tour.

The garden tour, took place in the general Hororata area, was organised by the Hororata Primary School PTA and was the  school’s big fundraiser for the year. The whole day was a huge success and raised an outstanding amount which will be used to fund projects in and around the School.

The public enjoyed a wonderfully diverse range of gardens from floral displays in full bloom, spectacular landscapes and some amazing layouts.

As well as the visually appealing gardens on show there was also a display of children’s art work which was enjoyed by many, plus food  was available at the Guillaumedowns venue. Raffle tickets and plants for sale also boosted the PTA’s coffers and were well supported by those attending the event.

The whole fundraiser would not have been possible without the wonderful helpers who assisted and worked so hard on the day ensuring it was enjoyable for those who attended.

Without the support of the generous property owners who opened up their gardens to the public the event could not have

gone ahead and organisers thank them for their participation.

Commented on was the noticeable amount of work and love put into the gardens, bringing joy to both owners and viewers alike.

Event organisers sincerely thank the owners of Arbourlea, Haldon, Downs Road Garden, Yarrabee Downs, Guillaumedowns and Terrace Station for their part in the Garden Tour and fundraiser.

The PTA are looking  to run this event biennially and are already thinking about the next tour – while the garden owners are no doubt taking some welcome respite from the labours necessary to prepare for this one!
