Our Neighbourhood Developments

We started with a vision, then it went down onto paper.

OurNeighbourhoodPlanAnd it’s coming to fruition faster than we thought possible. We are grateful for all our contributors – sponsors, donors, volunteers and Work for the Dole participants. Without you all, none of this would be happening. So here’s where things are at right now…

The kiddies bike mounds are in place, walking/riding paths are laid, new trees are planted, rocks are places and native plantings along the path have been dug in.

The old play equipment has been refurbished, the new playground equipment is in (thanks Hepburn Shire Council!) and boy does that swing get a workout. Locals and visitors to town alike are already frequently using the playground and park.

We call this building “The Lunchroom” because that’s exactly what it was in the war years, when this property was a knitting mill, supplying socks and other knitted garments to Australian soldiers on the battlefield.

Unusable for years, the Lunchroom is now fully refurbished inside and out, thanks to a combination of input from Hepburn Shire and grants that we obtained. It is in frequent use by our community, including Y3370, Wire Workshops, hire by individuals and groups, the Drama Sports group and most recently, the Bollywood dance classes!

The once-shabby interior is now clean and sparkling, very comfortable. At the other end a kitchen has been installed.
