| CHRISTMAS PRIZEAPOLOOZA 2019 | Be at the Greens on William these holidays

Finding a good, functional, friendly place to have a few drinks can be tricky. You want somewhere relaxed, but a place where your guests feel comfortable and ready for a good time. That’s exactly what you get at The Greens on William.

The Greens on William (formally the Bathurst City Community Club) has been operating for 8 years. Over those years they have built the business up by introducing a large variety of services that are targeted towards the community. In its first year, the club was originally run by Volunteers but as the business grew the need for paid staff was required. They have also successfully obtained government grants which have allowed them to slowly upgrade the club including the latest spectacular renovation to the Great Room!

The Greens on William is a function & events centre. There are lawn bowls (both social & competitive) as well as themed kids parties and themed hens parties. There are also thrift shop markets and many other events!

The Greens on William is managed by the incredibly approachable Rebecca Mathie and she will ensure that your function or event is absolutely perfect.

One the greatest aspects of The Greens on William is their committment to the community by offering The Little Pantry which is a food bank service.

The Greens on William is and always has been a club for the community. They are passionate about supporting small and local businesses. They have no gaming on site so the entire place is a family friendly venue. They take take pride in everything they do and are very passionate about turning their client’s visions into reality.

They also stay on top of current issues and trends to provide exhibitions, seminars, live screenings and workshops that can provide members of the community with new experiences and knowledge.

| CHRISTMAS PRIZEAPOLOOZA 2019 | Capture with Lorde this Christmas

As the new year roles around, it’s a really good time to think about how many photos you have of you and your kids. Photographs have this amazing ability to capture and preserve one single moment in time.

One of our favourite local photographers is Lorde Photography.

Owned and operated by the Jayde Gerke, Lorde Photography is your go-to for all your photography needs. Jayde will shoot weddings, families, events, businesses and anything else you need.

Jayde obtained her diploma in photography a few years ago and since that time her business has grown significantly. She has had a few breaks to have her 3 babies and to get married herself.

A photo shoot with Lorde Photography is relaxed, enjoyable and affordable. When Jayde did our family photoshoot we had an absolute blast. She made us all feel comfortable and she even put up with a very naughty baby (here’s looking at you Tommy!)

{Locally Found} White Night was just Right

I was lucky enough to attend the inaugural White Night Party at  Mayfield Garden recently and I had an absolute blast!

Upon arrival we were met by the gorgeous and eternally friendly Meg who welcomed us with a big smile and a glass of delicious punch (that girl knows how to make friends!)mayfield2

I have to admit I have never been to the gardens before but once I followed the winding path I was amazed to see just how beautiful the place is! The party was centred under a generous white tent surrounded by rolling grass hills and a magnificent water feature.


We found our seats on the shared tables and quickly made friends with the people beside us. I love the idea of communal tables, I think it is so easy to go places with your friends and only stay in your group but shared tables encourage you to meet those around you. We were lucky enough to sit with a couple of very friendly ladies from Raine and Horne Real Estate in Bathurst.

The tables were generously adorned with flowers and fernery as well as bottles of red and white wine. It was certainly clear from the outset that no one was going to be short of a drink all night!

The whole place felt like we had stepped into an exclusive Hampton’s party, the floral decorations from Ivory Rose Botanicals were sublime, generous and really were the icing on the cake.

The night’s entertainment was a brilliant band The Orient Royal Mail Band who played well into the night and Mayfield Garden even ran a surprise fake wedding to showcase how brilliant a wedding could be at the grounds. I tell you what, if I was planning a wedding the Gardens would certainly be one of the frontrunners for me!

The food was delicious and generous and in particular if I could get my little mitts on an endless supply of the olive bread I would be eternally happy. I am obsessed with it, it was without a doubt the yummiest bread I have EVER eaten. *recipe please!*

The food was scrumptious and I am a strong believer in the food mentality on offer from Heath Smith and Head Chef Dan Child who offer paddock to plate wherever possible. Mayfield Garden are really ahead of the game when it comes to sustainable local produce being used effectively and absolutely deliciously.

All in all I look forward to going back next year to Mayfield Garden‘s White Night and celebrate a night filled with laughter, friendship and good food with my pals.

I can’t wait until the next chance I get to head out to Mayfield Garden. I hear there’s a cafe – oohhh I wonder if they have the olive bread!?!?
