ProgressCommunity Garden Update

The committee is continuing to work through the 39 consent conditions of our DA. Our water testing group has been assembled and will commence training shortly. Documentation is continuing and various reports are almost ready for submission to council.

It was observed recently that council has commenced marking out the boundaries of the future Community Garden with survey pegs. There was much excitement when a local resident reported the news to us at our recent seedling stall.


TriviaTrivia Night
It's getting closer. The turning of the first sod can't be too far off so what better time to get together for a very special meet and greet to not only raise funds but also have a lot of fun too.
We're planning a TRIVIA NIGHT on FRIDAY, AUGUST 16th, 2013 at the excellent PIPPIS at the POINT, Cnr The Esplanade and Main Road, Speers Point from 6.30 - 9PM
ENTRY is Adults $10, Concession $5, Families $25 and there will be a Kids Corner with face painting, drawing and more.
It'll be a great night of fun and games, opportunities to donate to a good cause plus a chance for more of us to meet each other and you don't even have to be a gardener to join in!
To BOOK contact Trish or John

Book now and pop it in your diary - don't miss out!  We'd love you to join in the fun with us. That's Friday, August 16 from 6.30pm at Pippis for the WBCG Trivia Night - see you there.
