Working Bee 7: 8-Oct-10

The final working bee for the year was held on Saturday 9th October with about twenty volunteers present. An enthusiastic group planted 700 plants in the gully below the caravan park, which brings the total number of plantings this year to about 5000. Many tonnes of Mirror bush and weeds have also been removed from the foreshore reserve.

It was great to have some new volunteers and a number of children also helped out. It was great weather for planting and with rain due later in the week the plants are expected to thrive.

Once again the Wonthaggi Lifesaving Club provided their facilities and prepared the morning tea and lunch. We greatly appreciate the efforts of Joan Scott and Irma Hyde over several years and a $500 donation was forwarded to their club in recognition of their help on our project work.

The current project will continue in 2011 and we will be looking for your support. Please take the opportunity in the next few months to have a look at the results of our projects. The improvements to the foreshore reserve are fantastic and a credit to all those who have attended the working bees.

Before Christmas a sign acknowledging the project will be erected at the car park near the Wonthaggi Lifesaving Club and a path to a new lookout area above the Clubhouse will be constructed, where two seats will also be erected.

Thank you to all our volunteers and we eagerly look forward to our next project.
