Planting day a great success!

AIMG_2329aThe park daffodil planting day saw a great turn out from the community. Several gardens at the front of the park that will make up part of the Frank Sydenham collection are now planted up with over a thousand daffodil bulbs.

The bulbs were donated by a local grower who originally purchased his daffodils from Frank many years ago so in a way it was a sort of homecoming for them.

Donations collected on the day raised over $500 which will go towards future park projects. Congratulations to all the lucky winners of awesome prizes donated by local businesses.

Can’t wait to see all the lovingly planted bulbs blooming in spring, it should be quite spectacular! A big THANKS to everyone involved!
