Located at 43A Springvale Road, Nunawading (on the corner of Beryl St) - all trees will be sold from here. They get a fresh delivery of 100 trees each day so there will be plenty to choose from.

Payment: All payments will go through the try booking link, when picking the tree up, we just scan the try booking voucher and you're good to go - this will all be contact free.

 

Prices: Our standard trees which are 5-7 ft (suits all standard height ceilings) are $60 each. (This is one of the cheapest prices in the area  - most groups sell these trees for $75+. 

 

Stands: Our small stands are $40 each and our medium stands are $60

Their stands are Cinco express stands - They're known to be the best on the market and all come with a 10 year warranty, they are easy to use, you can set up the tree in two minutes, they also have a built in watering device. The small and medium stands will both easily hold our standard trees - some people choose the medium over the small incase they choose a bigger tree in future, otherwise the small is fine.

 

Trees: All of their trees are freshly cut (less than 24 hours) and come from Dandenong Christmas tree farm (https://www.dandenongchristmastreefarm.com.au). They are known to be the best trees on the market - always dense and well shaped!

 

Delivery: When ordering a tree through try booking, there will be an option to select delivery, if this option is selected we will pick out a tree and deliver it for a flat rate of $15. There are several delivery time slots available.

 

Tree pickup: They also offer the option to come and remove your tree after Christmas for a flat rate of $10 - This can be purchased when ordering through try booking.

Mango Fundraiser

 

Thank you to everyone who ordered mangoes this year- would you believe that we’ve had the largest number of orders since 2017?  Your generosity has raised $825!  

The mangoes will be delivered to St John’s in early to mid-December (depending on when they’re picked) and I we will be in contact with updates via email. 

We’ll be concentrating on COVID-safe pick up this year so stay tuned for more information on that.  For any questions please email me on rhyanthony.elliott@gmail.com

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all the mango lovers who have supported this fundraiser for so long- in the past 12 years alone, the Mango Fundraiser has raised more than $9500.  From next year, Michelle Plant (Ben 1/2EP, Josh 5/6AB) will coordinate the fundraiser- thanks Michelle!

Many thanks once again,

Rhyannon Elliott (Patrick 5/6AB)
