The community is invited to enjoy market stalls, live music, food and friendship at the second annual Dalby Rugby Union Garden Day in the grounds of historic Jimbour House this Saturday October 2. The Dalby Wheatmen have hung up their boots for the season and have been out helping Jimbour Station Manager Carl Graham and event organiser Anne Condon prepare for the big day.
Mrs Condon said she was expecting this year’s event to be even bigger and better than last year which had been hosted at the Condon family property. “We are really excited to have a different venue this year to keep the crowd interested and it is such a privilege to have the event at such a beautiful location.”
“This venue is definitely a crowd pleaser and we have secured around 20 different quality market stalls featuring all kinds of wares from arts and crafts, gardening, fashion and beauty, jewellery and delicious cakes and sweets, so we’re expecting a great turn out,” she said.
A BBQ and bar will be operating throughout the day and there will be a lucky door prize of a pressure pump valued at $1,000 kindly donated by Water Dynamics – the major sponsor of this year’s event.
Carl Graham said the event offered a great day for all the family to visit the historic property. “There is nothing like visiting the Jimbour House gardens in spring. JImbour House has been a centerpiece of the local community for over 130 years and the gardens were built for people. The place just comes alive with people and I’m sure the garden day will be no exception”.
Mrs Condon and Mr Graham said the event would not be possible without the wonderful support of sponsors Water Dynamics, Johnsons of Dalby and Total Ag Services. Proceeds from the garden day will go towards the redevelopment of the Dalby Rugby Union Clubhouse and facilities.
Jimbour House is located just outside of Jimbour, approximately 34 kilometres from Dalby along the Dalby -Jandowae Road. Entry is $5 for adults. Children under 15 are free.
