Photo: SANDRA CROSBIE By SANDRA CROSBIE The opportunity to share her country garden, socialise with the community and raise funds has motivated Colyton businesswoman Wendy Newth to organise this weekend s inaugural Gum Tree Manor Garden Soiree. With her part- ner, A J (Andrew) Clark, and a group of enthusiastic Manawatu women, she hopes to create an event that can be repeated annually, and perhaps shared between gar- dens. On Sunday between 2pm and 6pm, the grounds of Gum Tree Manor on Reids Line East will be filled with marquees -- optimis- tically to shade out the sun, while live music is played, delectable food is hand- delivered and drinks are enjoyed. This year the group has decided raised funds will be used to cover the cost of two deserving students from Feilding High School to attend Outward Bound. We wanted to be proactive to mix a social event with fundraising. Attending one of the courses can change the life of a teenager, Wendy said. If the school selects the right students we will know that we may have helped set them in the right direction to enhancing their future and making them a stronger person. Well-known local musician and now owner of Beggs Music Shop in Palmerston North, Dean Parkinson will lead the lineup of artists. His talent extends beyond provid- ing party music and includes saxophone in a variety of genres. The highlights of his career have been performing with Ray Charles live band for a Wellington gig and touring nationally with musical theatre shows. But for decades he has entertained at weddings, events, bars and private par- ties and is renowned for his ability to adapt his music to the audience. A good friend of Wendy s, he is happy to lead the entertain- ment for the fundraising event. Other local musicians are also being approached to perform on the day. It is a good way to encourage and support some of our young local talent. They deserve to have a captive audience. Wendy herself is an accomplished performer, having been involved in local amateur theatre for 25 years. She has been the lead in many musicals and also led the female singing trio Ooh La La. She is also well known to many women in the region as the face of Studio 31 in Palmer- ston North, a business she has owned and operated for many years and established in other towns throughout the region. We want the event to be classy. There will be vintage cars, tables and chairs, and blankets for people. Hostesses will wander among people ensuring everyone is having a good time, socialising and enjoying the entertainment. There will also be other traditional activities such as croquet, petanque and spinning wheel. A spit-roast will also be part of the food being offered. As her home was built in 1923, the theme of that era will also be used at the event, with people encouraged to dress in period clothes or in present-day finery. Tickets to the garden soiree are $50, at Studio 31 in Feilding or Palmerston North, and there will be eftpos sales at the gate.
