INCLUDES FREE helmet and whip flag ews WAITOMO 220 take part in garden ramble DEVOTED BRIGADE: ‘The Violet Ladies’ organised this year’s biannual Te Kuiti White Ribbon Garden and Art Ramble. Pictured from left: Shirley Pierce, Leoni Warren, Ann Jones, Karen Houghton and Glenys Tuheke. “EVERY garden is beautiful, eve- rywhere is different and to say what is the best is not something you can define.” That’s how Te Kuiti White Ribbon Garden and Art Ramble attendees Noel Verry and Tom Brough de- scribed the spring scene on show throughout the Waitomo district last weekend. The pair were among more than 220 people to visit 20 local gardens open to the public to support the White Ribbon appeal. They couldn’t decide which their favourite was, but were more than happy to support the event which raises funds for those affected by family violence. Established in 2010, this year’s ramble gardens ranged from small picture-perfect urban plots to spa- cious rural parklands with artists displaying their works at most stops. The ramble was again organised by ‘The Violet Ladies’ group along with their artistic and gardening friends. Violet Ladies committee member Shirley Pierce says 223 tickets were sold, slightly down on the 2012 event due to bad weather leading into the weekend. “Considering the weather that week, we were absolutely thrilled so many came,” she says. “People were still buying tickets on Sunday, we received very positive comments.” Te Kuiti Police Senior Constable Jacky Fitzgerald and Constable Steve Rickards kept visitors fed with a bar- becue at the event’s third stop – Bein and Val Nahna’s six-year-old garden on Gadsby Rd. VISITORS GALORE “We had lots of visitors from Roto- rua, New Plymouth, Opunake, Rag- lan, Auckland, Hamilton, Te Awa- mutu and of course, Otorohanga and Te Kuiti people wandering around our garden of flowering perennials and natives, we had an awe- some time,” says Mrs Nahna. “People were very enthusiastic about the ramble and really enjoyed their day. “Lots of people stopped here for lunch – we had Jacky and Steve flipping burgers on Saturday and Jacky was back with Andy Connors on Sunday. “They did a wonderful job in their own time to help raise money to help those affected by family violence in our community.” Among the visitors were Sandy Goddard and her mum Shirley from Auckland, who attended the first ramble four years ago. “It’s nice to be able to come down, wander around and enjoy the weekend visiting the gardens for a great cause – good on them,” says Mrs Goddard. Violet Ladies chairwoman Carol Green says the group organised the event because they want to make a difference in the lives of woman suffering violent relationships. “Some of our members have been there and, rather than dwell on the past, we want to make things better using what we love . . . our gardens.” LABOUR OF LOVE: Te Kuiti residents Bein (pictured) and Val Nahna welcomed more than 220 visitors to their six-year-old garden during the weekend.
