Working bee and chainsaw training – this Sunday (the 27th November)

A reminder that the monthly Sunday working bee will be held this weekend on the 27th of November from 09.30am at the Envirofund area via the northern end of Wood St.

The general plan is to do the usual cleaning up around our plantings which will be mainly whipper snipper work. Others can weed in plant guards and generally tidy them up, and also cut and paint the gorse and broom plants.

Morning tea will be provided and whipper snippers would be useful!

ALSO … we have decided to proceed with the chainsaw safety session after the working bee.

Weather permitting, it will commence at noon in the paddocks near Badgers Removals at the northern end of Wood St. The charge will be minimal for non-members and free for Landcare members.

This session will only cover some basic safety aspects and will only last for about one hour, so those who need to can escape for lunch. Luke has agreed to stay around for anyone who wants to discuss things, but the likelihood is that we will run a slightly expanded course covering some maintenance aspects as well as the safety issues early next year. This may be a dedicated Sunday morning session rather than being at the end of working bee.

If the brief session on Sunday is OK for you, please come along with your saw if you have one. Otherwise let us know if you would like to be contacted for a longer sessions next year.
