By GISELA HORNER | Volunteer, Bella Vista Farm
The Friends of Bella Vista would like to thank all our visitors for their support during this past year. Although it has been a very difficult time for so many, Bella Vista has thrived thanks to the dedication of its volunteers.
On Sunday, December 5th, we welcomed visitors and although it was an overcast day, it was well attended and supported.
The orchestral groups played popular tunes and a bell-like vocalist sang carols during the morning, creating an atmosphere of great happiness throughout the grounds. It felt like we were back to normal!
The newly painted homestead looked magnificent and the abundant gardens added charm with the heritage roses in full bloom.
Bella Vista Farm would like to thank Bev Jordan, Senior Journalist, at the Hills to Hawkesbury Community News, for publishing the stories I write each month.
The Farm also thanks Dr Michelle Byrne for her interest, passion and enthusiasm in supporting us. She has done a great job as Mayor of Hills Shire, serving the community on the Council with dedication beginning in 2008.
We wish Michelle well in her future endeavours. There will be plenty to see and do at Bella Vista Farm in 2022. All of us at Bella Vista Farm wish you a safe, healthy and happy festive season and we look forward to welcoming you again. The house will open its gates on Sunday, March 6th 2022 (9am to 2pm).
