In high spirits at the Axedale Golf Day

After having to postpone the Axedale Golf Day, due to the floods in October 2022, it was great to see this event take place on a beautifully sunny Autumn Sunday, 30 April.

Teams enthusiastically took to the course, for this annual event – which is hosted by the Axedale Primary School and Axedale's Shine Bright Kinder – to raise funds for various projects at both facilities.

While Fosterville Gold Mine's Community team provided event support, it was also generously supported by numerous businesses who donated both financially and in-kind to make the day a success.

Well done to all the volunteers from APS and the Axedale Kinder who put in a huge effort to deliver a fantastic event!
