News snippet from 2012:
Saturday 8 December 2012 marked the `reopening? of the nursery. With over 200 people passing through the nursery the day was hailed a success. With over $2,000 sales in plants, $250 proceeds from the BBQ and Stitches & Prints selling $185 worth of their products, the day resulted in a significant boost for the nursery’s overall sales for the year.
In the absence of our local member and Minister for Aged Care & Disability Services, Andrew Constance; Bega Valley Shire Council’s Deputy Mayor, Councillor Russell Fitzpatrick undertook the official honour of reopening the nursery. Whilst dubbed a reopening, the nursery has not in fact been closed. It has, however, seen a major refurbishment with many favourable and positive comments and the reopening marks the rebirth of the nursery as a retail sales outlet.
The support of the IMB Community Foundation is recognised not only in its contribution towards the refurbishment, but also to the sponsorship on the day with two lucky people winning $100.00 each for further purchases at the Nursery. Drawn the following Monday the winners were Betty Egan and Walter Kleiner.
