The shed has had a couple of wins recently. We were presented with a $500 grant from the Commonwealth Bank, North Balwyn by its manager, Ms Emma Qi. This is the second such cheque and the board has decided to use these funds to fill and plant out the garden beds.
We were also advised that our application for a $20,000 state government grant had been successful. These funds are specifically to pay for the proposed rear canopy and surfacing of the outside area.
Special thanks are due to Bernie and his team of “happy campers” for the excellent job on the garden beds. Great work!
Last week, we installed a temporary canopy in the rear area to offer protection from the sun and rain until such time as we can obtain council permission to build the permanent canopy.
A reminder of the Christmas dates:
Thursday, 19th December – BBQ at 12.00pm. Drinks – BYO.
Friday, 20th December – Workshop clean up working bee.
Monday, 21st January – Shed reopens.
Finally, a reminder that the $25.00 membership/insurance fee for the 2020-2021 year is due and payable, and would be appreciated before the end of January.
To all our members, we thank you for the support you have given to the shed, and hope you have benefited and gained much enjoyment from your involvement.
On behalf of your board, may I wish you and yours a very merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.
