Numbers may have been slightly down at the annual Orana Gardens Spring Fair, but those who attended didn’t leave disappointed.
Orana Garden social committee member Noeleen Finegan said the skit Grannies with Walkers from Our Village People was a big hit on the day. For those who missed it, don’t worry, Our Village People will be performing again at the Christmas Party.
Six of the residents had been practicing since April to ensure they remembered the performance, Ms Finegan said.
“A lot of people don’t come out much but this gets them out of their unit and brightens up the day for them,” she said.
There were also four trading tables, selling items such as paper flowers and candles, as well as a wool spinning demonstration. Attendees were given afternoon tea and also had a chance to win prizes either from either the lucky door giveaway or the raffles.
A fashion parade had been held for the past two years, but it was decided not to hold it this time, Ms Finegan said.
