Open Garden Family Day

Last Sunday on April 2, an open garden family day was generously hosted by the MG Car Club and George and Pat Hetrel, the owners of Como Gardens, at the base of the Dandenong ranges.

It was a great fun filled day, and the families thoroughly enjoyed the vast grounds, miniature train rides and incredible collection of classic cars.

There were a lot of activities for the children including sand art, a balloon animal entertainer, walks in the fairy garden, visits to the Hobbit house and even a jumping castle.

 “This day for Very Special Kid’s families hosted by MG car club is the highlight of the year” said George Hetrel.

The resounding highlight was definitely the miniature train, it is always extremely popular, and more than one child reported it being what they loved most about the day.

It was an exceptionally peaceful and calm atmosphere with families enjoying the opportunity to have a picnic together and the beauty of gardens surrounding them.

One parent, when asked what makes the day most enjoyable for them stated “the food, the train, the company and the lovely MG car club volunteers and Very Special Kids staff who made me feel so very welcome.”
