At this year’s Home and Garden Show the sun was shining and there was something for everyone and every pooch.
Held at the Bong Bong Picnic Race Club on Saturday and Sunday, September 9 and 10, the show featured over one hundred stalls from home and afar.
There was food, face painting, a dog show, a talk on energy and solar panels, cooking demonstrations and lots of home improvement ideas.
Matt Simms, co-owner of Simmark, gave a seminar on energy, with advice about the latest technology in solar and home battery storage.
Another popular attraction on the day was the Dog Zone, which held a competition for Best Dressed and Best Trick to an adoring crowd.
Event organiser, Elizabeth Newham Nichols, said she was particularly pleased with the diversity of stallholders at this year’s show.
“That’s something we really tried to work on this year,” she said.
The event has continued to grow since its inception in 2014. Ms Newham Nichols said they expected to see between 3500 and 4000 visitors coming through their gates over the two day event.
