Working Bee - March

Due to the forecast maximum temperature of 34oC, the working bee planned for Saturday, 5 March has been postponed to Saturday, 12 March

Working Bee - February

The first working bee of the year in Shepherds Hill Recreation Park which was to have been held last Saturday will be held on Saturday, 13 February. Meet at the Ayliffes Road car park at 8.50 am or at the work site. We'll be working in a new area for us, in the creek line in Zone 1 on the western side of the Viaduct Track. There are lots of olives and ash trees to be drilled and filled and lots of Rice Millet and some fennel to be cut and swabbed.

The trailer will be parked off the track, on the northern side of the open area, near the Pony Club.

The forecast maximum temperature for Saturday is currently 30oC which should be OK, but the area where we'll be working is reasonably exposed so you'll need to wear a hat and put on some sunscreen.

As you may be aware, Shepherds Hill will be the Nature Play Park of the Month in March with the main events scheduled for Sunday, 20 March. Robyn is hoping to arrange a number of activities for children on the day and would like to discuss ideas during morning tea at the working bee. So we hope to see you there.

Working Bee postponement

Due to the forecast maximum temperature of 35oC, the first working bee of the year, which was to have been held on Saturday, 6 February, has been postponed to the following Saturday, 13 February. The Committee Meeting, which was to have followed the working bee on 6 February, will still be held at Robyn's house on that day, but will now commence at 9.00 am. All interested members are invited to attend.
