Our speakers for the meeting next Monday at the Warburton Golf Club, will be speaking on weed identification and control of weeds in this area. You are invited to bring along any weed samples that you may want help in identifying. Especially if you can combine this with a photo of the weed in situ. This identification process could be the most valuable part of the presentation.
So get out in the garden and dig up you most vexing weeds (if they are surviving the drought) and bring them along.
PS Bring a neighbour that has made positive comments about your garden. They just may like to be a part of our club.
I have finally caught up with the people involved in the Martyr Road and Waterloo Avenue house fires and presented to them their cheques.
The first photo relates to Janine and John Thompson-Stokell, (Waterloo Ave), and the other is of Nina Hellicare, (Martyr Road).
Each family received $1200 towards their endeavour to get their lives back on track. We wish them all the best and let them know that the club is proud to have helped in their time of need.

With the payment of these cheques the Club has donated just on $14,500 to worthy recipients since 2010.
I’m sorry everybody. I had this post done the day after the party but for some reason it never actually arrived at the website. My apologies. Enjoy reliving the moments of frivolity.
