Christmas in the Park

Written By: Luke Brunckhorst - Dec• 04•14

It’s that time of year again and we are having our Xmas get together this weekend, Sunday the 7th December
We will be meeting at Blackbutt Reserve (bottom end) around 10AM
B.Y.O food and drink, and possibly Chairs as we are unable to guarantee access to one of the seating areas in time!

Be advised that there is a cost for parking ($3-$5 from memory, but don’t quote me), but this goes to the maintenance and upkeep of the reserve and the animals.

Please contact the Shed on 0402810724 if you need further details

Merry Christmas from all of us at the Shed, and hope you all have a safe and Happy Holiday!

The existing photocopier/printer one is a Canon 2016i, and requires the drum to be replaced/repaired, which is unfortunately not a cheap endeavor.

If you are able to assist, or if someone in the community knows of a photocopier that is able to be donated, please contact Garry on
