The Lincoln and Districts Community Care’s annual Spring Fling Country Fete fundraiser is on again.

The award-winning Broadfield Garden, covering 10 acres on Selwyn Road, will once again host the Spring Fling fundraiser on Sunday, October 7 from 11am to 4pm.

One of the organisers, Vanessa Thompson, said as well as the opportunity to view the exquisite gardens there will be stalls, food and beverages, as well as demonstrations.

“To enhance the experience there will be music in the garden, and there’s nothing more relaxing than strolling through 10 acres of award-winning gardens on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

“The event showcases not only the immaculately tended gardens but includes live music, artisan stalls, plant sales, a range of great food and beverages, garden tours and demonstrations.

“The major sponsor this year is Intelligro, and the event is organised by volunteers with all proceeds going to Lincoln and Districts Community Care Association.”

Tickets for the event are $20, but ‘early bird’ tickets are available for $15 if purchased prior to the event at New World Lincoln, Paperplus Hornby or Lincoln Community Care in Lincoln.

The event will go ahead regardless of the weather conditions.
