A fundraiser for the Rural Relief Fund was held at the historic Richmond Hill gardens on 30th March 2019.  Over 100 people visited the gardens during the day sharing in an afternoon tea of scones, jam, slices and sausage rolls and taking a stroll through the beautiful grounds and gardens.  With 40 attending evening buffet dinner that was held behind the stunning Granary building, enjoying a glass of Tasmanian wine and listening to music provided by the St Patricks Big Band.  Thank you to everone who attended and particularly thank you to the volunteers for all your hard work.  With further donations and sales still coming in we expect to exceed $7,000 in money raised from the event and will provide a final wrap up soon
