Only Two Days to Go

With only two days to go before the big day there has been plenty of last-minute activity.  Final arrangements have been made to ensure that our panel of antiques valuers are ready, signage is organised, the sound system in place, activities are ready to run, The Breeze will be there, and traffic management plans are ready to roll.

Sunday 28 March will be a very busy day along Lake Road.  At 9.00am some 8,000 kids will be released from the upper fields at Takapuna Grammar School for the Shore to Shore Fun Run to Milford.  Later in the morning they will return to the area with their parents to collect cars, and hopefully visit the Wilson Home Antiques Road Show and Family Fun Day.  Lake Road will also be busy with people heading to the Bikers’ Day Out at Fort Takapuna so visitors to the Wilson Home Fair should expect some congestion and delays.

Remember, all adults paying the $2 entry donation to the Wilson Home Antiques Road Show and Family Fun Day are automatically in the draw at 3.30pm for the 7 day holiday for two on Queensland’s Gold Coast, but you have to be present at the draw to collect the prize, or it will be redrawn.  Conditions for the draw are as follows:

  1. Each entrance ticket will entitle one entry into a prize draw which will take place on 28 March 2010 at 3.30pm at the Harvey World Travel tent. The first entry drawn where the ticket holder is present will be the winner.
  2. The prize is a 7 day Gold Coast Holiday for two staying at the Breakfree Beachpoint apartments with return economy airfares and all prepaid airport taxes to the value of $1500.00. All other expenses are the sole responsibility of the winner. The winner and their companion must travel together and are responsible for obtaining all necessary visas and valid passports for travel. The prize must be redeemed by 31 October 2010.
  3. The prize is non-transferable, non-refundable and can not be exchanged for cash. The prize is subject to availability at time of booking. The winner must book their travel directly with Harvey World Travel, Milford.
  4. By entering the prize draw each entrant agrees to be bound by these terms and conditions.

As you will appreciate, parking will be at a premium, so please be considerate.  Parking will be available for a donation of $5 in the Takapuna Grammar Grounds . Lake Road entrance from 11.00 am.

It looks as though the weather will be fine, so bring your antiques and children and enjoy the fun of the fair.

Wilson Home Fete coincides with 25th Annual Shore to Shore Fun Run

A coincidence of dates will result in large groups of people gathering in the Takapuna Grammar and Wilson Home area on the morning of Sunday 28 March.

Runners and walkers in the 25th Youthtown Shore to Shore Fun Run will gather at Takapuna Grammar prior to the start of the run to Milford.  As they move along Lake Road they will pass The Wilson Home where a Family Fun Day and Antiques Road Show will start later in the morning.  Signs for the Wilson Home event will remind the runners and walkers that there is more fun to be had after they finnish at Milford Reserve.  Some 8,000 runners and walkers are expected to participate in the run.

Both The Wilson Home Trust for Children with Disabilities and Youthtown will be worthy recipients of proceeds raised from these events.
