Barb’s a winner

Nuriootpa’s Barb Burgemeister was nearly lost for words after hearing she had won a brand new car.

Answering the phone call Monday  morning, the great grand-mother laughed with delight when she was told her name was drawn out of the barrel as the lucky winner of a sparkling new Hyundai Accent in The Leader shop local campaign.

“I can’t believe it!” said Barb. 

“It’s a good birthday present! I just turned 70 last Wednesday.”

She waited until husband, Trevor came home before telling him of her win and that afternoon, they went to see Barb’s brand new four door hatch parked in the shed of The Leader office in Angaston.

Barb said she put a few entries in the competition boxes whilst doing her shopping at participating businesses, but doesn’t recall what she purchased at Barossa Nursery, where her winning entry was placed. 

“I can’t remember exactly what I bought… but I’m always buying plants!” she laughed.

Barb said she had never been all that lucky when it came to winning competitions.
