Eden Gardens and HCF Macquarie Centre co-hosted an event all about health and wellness. When you take a unique garden centre and retail outlet – and we all know plants are great in the office or home for filtering the air – and the leading health insurance provider, you get a standout event. An event at which you can use pedal power to create your own delicious fruit smoothie, for example. 🙂

Our guests had a lot of fun, ate delicious food from Eden Gardens’ cafe, and took with them a goodie bag from HCF and Eden Gardens packed with special offers and great information.

Thank you to Anna Ainsworth of Eden Gardens and Carmen Santucci of HCF Macquarie Centre for being such generous and wonderful hosts.

Eden Gardens' lush event reception areaEden Gardens has revamped its retail areas, providing a spacious new customer experience, and will be holding a very special exhibition in the gardens area for six months from October. Watch out for information in our e-news and on this site.

Carmen Santucci encouraged members and guests to talk to her about health insurance and the excellent deals HCF can offer to businesses of any size, being the largest not for profit health insurer in Australia.

Wendy Jane Whalley of Get Sorted was drawn out as our Business of the Month winner. Wendy excels in assisting small and micro biz owners with their bookkeeping and office administration, and also offers a downsizing service for people making the move to a smaller property.

Eden Gardens provided a glossy bromeliad plant in the lucky draw, which was won by Peter Schofield of HCF and first time visitor Belinda McFarlane of First National won a tablet pc presented by HCF.

We welcomed new member Sharon Levingston of My Expertise.
