Take a tour of this historic cottage and chat to the hard-working volunteers working to preserve this slice of our pioneering history.
Set yourself up under the trees in the Vallance Cottage Reserve's community orchard for a family picnic. Enjoy performances by local musicians. We hope to have the Puna Rangatahi - Alexandra & Districts Youth Trust coffee cart on site and a real fruit ice cream vendor too.
The reserve will be part of the Blossom Festival Garden Tour too on the Sunday and at 2pm the Rotary Trees for Babies initiative will see 18 new fruit trees planted in the orchard.
We ask that people bringing their dogs with them or exercising their dog in this area please keep them on a leash.
