Ramblers Backyard Blitz 2010

The major auction item for the 2010 Quiz Night was for a backyard makeover headed up by Brett Lawson of Climate Change Landscape & Project Management and Justin “JC” Calderbank.

Through the very generous donations by the sponsors below, the auction raised over $3,500 at the auction with a number of bidders all vying for the prize with Deb & Glen Rosie being victorious.

Over the course of a few weekends, Deb & Glen’s backyard has gone from “we think there’s a backyard there somewhere” to “that’s a place you’d want to spend a lot of time in”.

After the makeover...


Players from the club put in the hard yards to make it happen, they being Brett Lawson; Justin Calderbank; Matt Smith; Damian Allen; Martin Wagner; Josh Haussen and Sam Davenport.

Without sponsors, things like this don’t happen. Please make every effort to use their services/products if you can and mention the cricket club. Hopefully the club can do this annually but we need people’s support.

Climate Change Landscape & Project Management
Brett Lawson managed the entire project, organised all the items and designed the new landscape. Brett put in a huge effort to make this happen. If you need landscaping work done – look no further. Deb & Glen couldn’t be happier.
