Unfortunately, the last working bee planned for this calendar year was a washout with heavy rain coming earlier in the day than expected.
With the warmer weather (?????!!!) in Spring and given some rain, weeds grow prolifically – and we have a bumper crop this year.
Despite the early stop to work, some useful progress has been made along the creek-bank adjacent to 60 Main Street. Committee thanked Friends who assisted and/or joined us for a cuppa. Sadly, work was not completed. Please click here if you think you might like to assist that group of stalwarts.
Council will also be working in this area shortly – removing more woody weeds (invasive trees such as prunus), realigning the track a little northwards and replanting the old path with indigenous vegetation. Yes, 60 Main Street is the site of the proposed development currently seeking planning approval (click here for further details).
Update (31/10/2013): Due this partly washed out last working bee, Committee has decided to organise another for Sunday 10th November – 09:00 till noon – again, at 60 Main Street. The area currently does not look good – but, with some weeding, it will improve. Many hands make light work so hope to see you there.
