North Beach working bee

A new month has just ticked over and that must mean there is another working bee happening down at North Beach.

This Saturday (5 October) we'll be chipping away and cutting new ground.

Focus will be heading back from Les Warren Park so that's going to be our meeting point from 8.30am.

We're not going to be providing lunch this time sorry, so please bring along your sandwiches.

Now daylight savings has kicked in, every Wednesday evening from 5pm going forward, weather permitting, Paul will be leading a team to continue making progress. If you struggle to make the weekend here is another opportunity to come and make a contribution.

Meeting will be Les Warren Park and work will continue until people are keen to go home.
