John delivers the Hitty bench on time the following morning and the Hitty girls are at the hall waiting for the surprise to arrive.
John has the bench covered and he carries it into the hall with the cover on.The Hitty girls go outside and pat Grey legs before she leaves and thank John for delivering the surprise.
Pat takes the cover off and the Hitty girls all want a turn to sit on the bench… which they do. They love the seat lid which opens to reveal a storage area.Pat says the leader of the Helping Hands Group can sit on the bench at the meetings and they can put paper, pen and other things that are needed at the meetings in the storage seat.

Further round the lake they can see the goldfish swimming near the surface, who are hoping they will get something to eat from the people visiting the lake.

Edna and Yasmin arrived next within a few days of each other. Edna arrived undressed. Yasmin arrived fully dressed and brought her toy kangaroo, her passport and some money with her. The plastic canvas chair and footstool with two cushions and cloth doll arrived shortly after for the Hitty girls to use.
Alana, Annabelle and Abigail were expected to be the first Hitty girls to arrive but they were delayed and arrived five months later! They arrived undressed with a pattern each for a dress and a piece of material to make the dress. Steve Sunshine repainted a wooden couch blue and gave it to the girls to have in Kowhai Corner Hall where the Hitty girls live in the attic. Pat remembers hearing (in 2006) that the Hitty girls were going to get a Hitty bench . Pat wonders when that will be.
