Roger’s made another playhouse


Another impressive playhouse has rolled off the production line in Roger Paterson’s workshop.

Annually, the trained cabinet maker crafts a unique playhouse that is raffled for Ashburton Lions Club.

Mr Paterson, the current club president, has being making the playhouses for 18 years and the project nets the club around $3500 each year.

This year a giant, summer playhouse flooded with light has been created.

There are french doors that open right up at the front and large windows at each end.

The 1.8m x 1.4m structure has a deck and porch and can be filled with toys, can be used as a reading nook, or simply as a cosy hang out for kids.

The playhouse will be on display and raffle tickets sold to win it at Boulevard Day on East Street on September 23.

The raffle will be drawn in December and the playhouse will be delivered to the lucky winner before Christmas.

After Boulevard Day, tickets, if still available, can be purchased via Lions club members.
