Local contractor for Banyula

A fairly major project is being undertaken at Banyula Village. A contractor has been engaged to refurbish the fading Colorbond roofs of all the villas. A spokesman for the Bushland Health Group, Dennis Hawkins, advises that some of the villas are 23 years old and the Colorbond is only guaranteed for 17 years, so it is time for a spruce-up.

The successful tenderer was Stephen Clark Roof Restoration, a business that would be well known around Old Bar. Steve Clark and his two sons are all carrying out the work which involves pressure cleaning and scrubbing the roof before masking off and respraying. The result is a great improvement in the appearance of all the villas.

Recycle mobile phones and printer cartridges

One way you can help the environment and the community is to recycle your old mobile phones and printer cartridges. Mobile phones can be taken to the library for recycling, along with your old small batteries. Used printer cartridges can be dropped in at the Old Bar Post Office where they are recycled through Planet Ark.

Craft at Old Bar

The workshop for today sees us completing the coat hanger made last fortnight. Joy will show us how to make a set of beads to really set it off. Bring your choice of beads plus a floral or ribbon embellishment and embroidery needle and thread.

Craft commences at 11am and all ladies are welcome. You will need to bring your lunch; tea and coffee are provided. Cost is $4 per session and sometimes there is an extra charge for kits or incidentals. It is not necessary to participate in a workshop; you are most welcome to bring along your current craft project. Want to know more? Please ring 6553 2500 or 0415 785 608.
