Smell the peonies


Gaynor and Roger Shepherd (above) helped raise $1320 for the Cancer Society at Phil Leydon’s peony gardens last Sunday.

Ten Arrowtowners held a Devonshire tea party to fundraise for the society’s annual Relay for Life walkathon, which they’re doing in March. Organiser Jan Osborn was chuffed with the result.

Twelve businesses donated Christmas hampers to be raffled – won by Heather Cotton, Trish Hamilton and Ling Patterson – while friends donated a handmade scarecrow and homemade scones.
