STIHL Milinas kitchen

The inaugural STIHL Ladies Garden Party event was held at Warblers Retreat, Albany Auckland on the 23rd September 2017.  If you are wondering what it's all about, read on...

Why Stihl?  It’s reliable and a great brand.

Why Stihl Shop Silverdale?  Because Pete and Jude Leishman along with their team give you great, friendly service and excellent follow up – they care about their customers.  They give hours of time and a lot of money towards helping kids through the Trillian Trek which partners with Blue Light NZ.

Why Warblers Retreat?  This is a property Barb and her husband Dave (landscaper/stonemason) have created.   They have acquired many Stihl tools over the years in their work.  Barb looks after the gardens and loves using her STIHL tools (toys), especially the battery powered lawnmower.  Dave’s very happy with that!

Why Barb Cooper?  Because Barb works for Harcourts Cooper & Co and has a strong community focus.  Having been a primary school teacher herself, Barb always likes to promote the local school.

Idea “!@$#!   Those are the ingredients for a great gathering.  Jude and Barb got their heads together and thought that a STIHL Ladies Garden Party would be a bit of fun, especially in the spring when it’s time to have a good clean out in the garden.  As a promotional event, it would be a great chance to demonstrate how easy the battery powered tools are to use and it would be a good way to raise funds to help kids.

The gathering was a great success with over 30 participants dressed up and ready to do some damage to overgrown plants and lawn with the mere push of a button. Victoria Mears and her team from Milinas Kitchen provided a delightfully decadent High Tea while Sharon Benton arranged the beautiful flowers for the tables. The High Tea was followed with bubbles and a prizegiving where STIHL Shop Silverdale generously gave away a range of prizes and vouchers.  A luxury night’s stay at Warblers Retreat was also donated by Dave and Barb.  As well as having a fun day out, every lady went home with something.
