What a wonderful day we had yesterday at the first ‘Friends of the Park Working Bee.’
A great deal of work was achieved by our 10 volunteers - Dave Lassam, Leanne Trotter, Pam Ryan-Orchard, Cheryl Smart, Vicki Scott, Marilyn Adams, David Barclay, Vin McPhee, David Brace and myself, Chris Moore.
The secretary’s office in the Boxhall Pavillion was thoroughly cleaned including removal of all the rubbish on the roof. The gutters at the front of the Pavilion were also cleaned. The gardens outside the Pavilion were pruned, weeded and tidied up. All the garden beds from the Classic Room to the Group 5 ring were cleaned up. All the roses were pruned including the other rose garden near Group 6.
The team removed about six trailerloads of prunings and rubbish! Check out the photos here
Yesterday’s weather was perfect and we had a lovely lunch and many visitors from the office including the Chief Executive, Tim Adams. Even our Vice President dropped in to say hello which was great.
Hopefully all members will see the difference at the show this weekend.
The KCC Park Facilities Committee will give advance notice of the next Working Bee and all volunteers and their friends are most welcome.
If you have a skill and are able to help, please contact Jacinta at the Dogs Victoria office via firstname.lastname@example.org We are seeking anyone with trade skills – plumbers, carpenters, builders, concreters, painters, signwriters etc as well as someone to test and tag our equipment.
Working Bees are great opportunities to connect with your Dogs Victoria community and improve your member facility. Consider joining our next ‘Friends of the Park Working Bee’ and make a difference.
