February/March 2011

Hi everybody,

What an eventful month this has been, we were very busy with the Blues and Brews, and the Wine and food festival, both events were very successful and we enjoyed hosting some of the many people who attended. Everything was going well until the disatrous earth-quake struck in Christchurch, and threw the whole country into confusion. Our family members were safe, and fortunately the guests who had left here or were on the way up, as far as we know were fine. This event has made us think long and hard about the fragility of life and the need to care for other people, and have systems in place in case of emergency.

We hope that overseas visitors will take home the memories of New Zealand that include the spirit of New Zealanders in the face of such a tragedy. Three days before we celebrated our daughters wedding, Henry Maxwell's hosted the wedding party and we have many lovely photos around the house and garden, followed by the ceremony and celebration at Hunters winery.

We have completed our guest laundry, this free option along with the internet has proved so useful to our guests, which is why we decided to improve the facility, and there are now two washing machines, and driers for guest use.

We are looking forward to meeting you sometime this year, and welcome you to all the area has to offer.


Diana and Graham
