All working bees are entirely dependent on the weather.  With this in mind it is a good idea to register your intention to attend on either one or both days by contacting Jan Thompson on 0412 499872.  And if you are able to provide a plate of morning tea, then Jan would also be pleased to hear from you.
If you are interested in volunteering and want to find out more contact Margie on 0409 216251 or Jan on 0412 499872.

The Friends profile is forever being enhanced by the different skills each member brings. As a group we are open to different ideas and relish creativity. You may have a skill you would like to offer and it does not need to be of the manual labour variety. Maybe you are a whizz with a camera and would like to create a wild flower album, perhaps history is your interest, maybe website maintenance. We don’t know until you tell us so please email to or check us out on Facebook.
