WARMER weather heralds the annual Nazareth House fete, which will be held tomorrow, October 12.
The residential aged-care facility has organised a fete every year since the 1960s, according to auxiliary volunteer Shirley Burke.
"There's a number of attractions for young and old," Shirley says.
The fete, to be held in the grounds of Nazareth House in Manilla Road, starts at 9am.
"We have sweets, cakes, produce, morning tea and a barbecue," Shirley says.
For the children, there will be a jumping castle and face painting.
"Stallholders will be selling everything from jewellery and scarves, books, plants and cakes and there will also be a white elephant stall," Shirley says.

An additional attraction will be a performance from the Tamworth Pipe Band.
"As in past years we are expecting several hundred people to pass through our doors," Shirley says.
Proceeds from the fete go towards the purchase of new equipment and items for residents of Nazareth House, providing for their comfort and wellbeing.
"We hope to be able to replace curtains and bedspreads, lifting machines, beds tailored for special needs, exercise equipment and feature gardens," Shirley says.
Nazareth House Tamworth was founded in 1948 and has 90-beds in its aged-care facility. It provides care to residents of all faiths and denominations and is in large grounds close to transport links with ample on-site parking.
The community of Sisters provide spiritual, pastoral and emotional support to all residents.
Daily mass, rosary and other services are celebrated on-site in the renovated chapel, the heart of our Nazareth community. As well as being an aged-care facility, Nazareth House provides palliative care and offers wellbeing and lifestyle activities.
After liaising with the resident, the team develops social activity programs which are then planned, coordinated and reviewed.
These programs help create a welcoming, inclusive and vibrant environment at Nazareth House.
