Spring Working Bee & Bonfire at Bundaleer
An open invitation is extended to all community members to help give the Bundaleer Forest Reserve picnic ground and walking trails a socially distanced Spring Clean on Sunday September 13, from 9 am.
There will be jobs for all, big and small, and a hearty lunch with refreshments around a bonfire to follow at 1pm.
Tasks include planting of grasses and mulching trees and shrubs in the newly rehabilitated section of Bundaleer Creek, pruning overgrown branches, collecting fallen branches, collecting any litter, spreading a fresh layer of bark chips around the new playground, installing some new Maple Walk signage and more.
Please bring secateurs, loppers or whipper snippers, or a ride on mower if you have them.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided free of charge and will include campfire damper and toasted marshmallows.
The Spring Clean is being coordinated by caretakers of the picnic ground, the Bundaleer Forest Community Areas Association. Covid-19 protocol will be adhered to for the safety of all.
Come for an hour or the whole morning, kids very welcome to help and to play. Gloves and gum boots recommended!
Event Centre on Target
The working bee & bonfire will be a chance to check out progress of the Bundaleer event centre construction, which is on target for completion by early December.
The centre is the cornerstone of BFCAA’s vision to create a sustainable and significant income stream from which profits can maintain and improve the picnic ground and recreational trials.
Bundaleer Forest Community Areas Association is heading up the project with thousands of volunteer hours contributed to planning, administration, and in-kind works.
All three tiers of government have been big supporters of the initiative, with $260,000 from the State Government of SA, $200,000 from Northern Areas Council, $100,000 from the Australian Government, plus $100,000 from ForestrySA.
The construction project has had a significant benefit to the local community with Sanders Building Group employing three local lads full-time and utilizing local trades and businesses where possible.
Once completed, the centre will give local and regional business a boost and provide a special place for community to gather.
BFCAA has been highly encouraged with demand for hire of the venue, with eight weddings booked before completion of the build.
Bundaleer Board is now working speedily to fit out the venue with landscaping, crockery, cutlery, tables, chairs, blinds, furnishings, signage, plus developing a website and marketing materials.
Support from local and corporate business sponsors and family sponsors will be very gratefully appreciated and will be recognized on redgum posts surrounding the venue.
