Spring has sprung and the Brenchleys of Thirroul are opening their garden to the public to raise funds for very worthwhile causes.
This Saturday and Sunday people can drop by 12 Deborah Avenue, Thirroul between 9am and 4.30pm and check out the garden husband and wife team Ron and Sandy Brenchley have ‘‘lovingly’’ worked on for many years.
‘‘The wisteria, rhododendrons and magnolias are always lovely, and there are surprises anew among the shady, winding nooks ‘n’ crannies,’’ Mrs Brenchley said.
‘‘Whatever the weather Ron and I are happy for people to explore and enjoy our garden in their walking shoes.
‘‘Plants, crafts and Devonshire Teas are also available throughout the weekend.’’
As members of the Rotary Club of Bulli and Northern Illawarra, the Brenchleys will donate most funds from the weekend to Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children.
Mrs Brenchley said the charity used the skills of numerous volunteer surgeons, in many medical fields, to transform children’s lives.
‘‘Over 300 children from 20 countries have benefited from treatment they couldn’t otherwise have received, as it is not accessible to them in their home country,’’ Mrs Brenchley said.
Entry to the garden is by gold coin donation.
