SECOND WORKING BEE FOR FRIENDS OF QUEENS PARK 21 JULY 2019
Having had a very successful June Working Bee for Queens Park, the second one has been set for Sunday 21 July 10am to Noon.
There is still lots of work to be done – picking up rubbish, trimming back the undergrowth that intrudes onto various tracks, and further on clearing of areas that used to be lawn and have become covered in tradescantia (wandering willie) and other weeds.
We will meet again at the top of the steps which run up from the Grant Road/Park Street intersection to Wadestown Road.
Bring your tools if you can – there will be some spares supplied for those who need them. We want this to be an enjoyable occasion. Contributions to morning tea/coffee would be very welcome.
I hope to see you on Sunday 21st. Feel free to forward this to anyone who might be interested in a couple of hours of work and a good morning tea.
