Cherry Blossom
Finally the sun poked its nose out last week for a look to see if Ballarat was ready to come out of hibernation.   The blossom is starting to bud up and the walkers are making their way around the lake early in the mornings.   And sure enough what a fantastic sight it was in Ballarat on the weekend watching the Bulldogs play at the renovated Mars Oval.  We all felt very proud to be part of...
It is with sadness that our dear friend and employee for over 30 years - Ted Sargent - died on the 24th of August, 2016.  Ted was a loyal  friend especially to Bill our founder as he worked away gardening and maintaining properties.     He was hard working, dedicated and loved to tell a yarn.      At his funeral, there was much discussion about footy, gardening, friends and music but most of all...
