How wonderful to be able to listen to live music again in beautiful surroundings. We are currently organising a Garden Party in the Mornington Botanical Rose Garden with the Southern Peninsula Band playing in the Rotunda. This band has been bringing music to the Peninsula for over forty years and its extensive repertoire ranges from rock, musicals to the classics, and everything in between! More about this exciting event next month.
