 Last Event  Clean Up Australia Day

Despite hot weather, enthusiatic helpers gathered up bags of rubbish. Mostly it was in the carpark and around the picnic areas. Fortunately people seem to be more thoughtful in the bushland areas. The largest item removed was a big wooden ramp -well done to those who carried it.
