Waipuna shop wins window dressing award

Penny Heapy and manager Naomi Harrison from Waipuna Hospice Chairty Shop, winners of the Greerton Village Cherry Blossom Festival Window Dressing award

The Waipuna Hospice Charity Shop has won first place in the the 2019 Greerton Village Cherry Blossom Window Dressing competition.

“The competition was judged by Lynne Lawson who was the winner of this year’s Greerton Yarn Bombing competition,” says Greerton Village Mainstreet Manager Sally Benning. 

Lynne won the yarn bombing competition in August with her Charlotte’s Web-themed tree, which also helped raise funds for her selected charity Alzheimer’s Tauranga.

“Lynne’s an artist and so we invited her to judge the window dressing. The top three shop windows were very close and Lynne was very impressed with the high standard of entries.”

The Waipuna Hospice Charity Shop won $500 from the Greerton Village Community Association.

“The two runners up were Zest Café & Bakery and Whimzee Boutique,” says Sally. “And a highly commended award goes to ATAXZ Accountants.”

All windows will be on display today at the Greerton Village Cherry Blossom Festival.
