Hi, I worked with someone called Annette Macefield some quarter-century ago at Wellcome's Otahuhu manufacturing site. Due to company takeovers we all went our separate ways. Wanted to catch-up again but also hoping to keep it a surprise so am hoping that someone may know how to contact her. Possibly she may have headed to 'Oz but no big deal, it's only a phone call, but who knows?
.......so, does anyone?
We would like to thank everyone who came in and tried products during our tasting event last week. It was heartwarming to get such positive feedback from you.
The winner of the beautiful Harker Gift Basket, that was run in conjunction with the tasting event, was Debra Bell. Congratulations Debra, we hope you enjoy the basket of goodies.
