Methven Care Trust holds AGM and looks forward to House & Garden Tour

Sue van den Heuvel - Monday, November 09, 2015

Two new faces have joined Methven Care Trust.  Teacher Jan Anderson and farmer Roger Henderson were announced as trustees at the recent AGM.  Chairperson Jo Suyker thanked both for committing their time and energy to Methven Care Trust.  The AGM began with an acknowledgement of the contribution of former trustee Ian Totty.

"Ian's passion and commitment as a trustee and also chair of the fundraising committee was worn for all to see.  A true gentleman to work with we were most fortunate to have had his input in our first year.  Any motivation needed, on our part, to see this project through will come from our thinking of Ian and wanting to honour his memory," said Mrs Suyker.

The trust now turns its attention to the forthcoming Methven and Foothills House and Garden Tour on Saturday 28th November.  Tickets are on sale at both the Methven and Ashburton iSites for just $20 with all proceeds supporting the project to build a new aged care facility for Methven.  Thirteen properties will be opened up in our district; eleven houses and two gardens.  Some spectacular homes and gardens are promised and interest in tickets is already strong so make sure you don't miss out.

Another exciting innovation is a rock fundraiser.  Methven Care Trust has been offered a paddock-full of weathered rocks perfect for landscaping and garden placement.  Examples of the foothills-sourced rocks will be made available within Methven township shortly with orders being taken for delivery before Christmas in the Methven area.  More details on this fundraiser can be requested by emailing
