The sun shone on the 250+ visitors who participated in the weekend's house and garden tour of Cromwell and surrounding areas.  In a well orchestrated tour, participants were given maps which directed them around the 12 homes in a steady stream meaning that crowds did not build up in one place and people had plenty of time to wander round each home and garden.

Leader of the organising team Rotarian Paula Jackson was delighted with the success of the day.  'We could not have done it without the huge generosity of the 12 home-owners and the willingness they showed to open their homes to the passing parade of interested ticket-holders.  It means that all the ticket money will be going to St John for their new building."

She estimates that the proceeds will be in the vicinity of $13,000 and sincerely acknowledges the home owners as well as all the local businesses who sponsored all other elements of the tour.
