We were invited this year to be part of the Whanganui Summer Programme
and host an open day.

As this was the last weekend of the stay of our visitors
from Earlham College, we chose the Saturday.
However, one article advertised it as Sunday
so we ended up with TWO open days!!

All our letterboxes are in one place – often a good gathering/conversation spot.

We had no idea how many people would arrive
but The Summer Programme counted 135!!
Most people wanted to do the full tour of the 20 acres.

Herding the masses.
We split the group into 5 for the walking tour heading off
in different directions
at different times to avoid congestion

The weather was kind and at the time of the tour it was pretty hot going.
A welcome cup of tea and nibbles awaiting the visitors on their return.
