February news!

Our first Sunday working bee for the year will be on the 24th of February from 9am till 12pm at Ruby Mckenzie Park in Tennyson St. We’ve had three very successful working bees in a row around the same time last year in this area so we need to do some follow up weeding and tidying to keep this section of the creek in good order. The first task is some blackberries need treating at the Romsey Road end of the track and in the weir. Our second task is to check the creek for small re-emerging willows from Romsey Road downstream to Ruby Mckenzie Park and beyond to the new concrete bridge if possible. Some Hawthorns also need treating near the park. There is plenty of work so a good turnout would be greatly appreciated! We’ll have a delicious morning tea for all the hard workers who come along too!

Remember to wear suitable full cover protective clothing, gloves, sunglasses, hat and sturdy footwear. (gumboots will be useful for some of the weeds) Bring secateurs, loppers, pruning saws if you have them. The tool trailer will be at the assembly area in the park. We’ll have a briefing at 9am. Check out our latest calendar on the new Coles noticeboard or our website for upcoming events and working bees.
