SOUTHERN Grampians Shire Council hosted a community open day at the Hamilton Botanic Gardens on Friday.
With the council currently preparing a master plan for the gardens, members of the public were invited to share their thoughts and opinions on what they’d like to see in the upcoming plan.
Featuring a variety of entertainment including a sausage sizzle and marching band, President of the Friends of Hamilton Botanic Gardens, Leigh Coggins, said it was a “very significant” day in the history of the gardens.
“It’s been wonderful with the sun shining and the Monivae band entertaining us beautifully throughout the gardens,” she said.
