All are welcome!!!

Start at 8:00am at the parking area near the soccer fields.

Plan of works: Still working this out with BMCC.

Blue Mountains City Council have hired Adrian from Synergy to lead the Maintenance days.

Trail maintenance will only run for 4hrs. To get the most out of it, please arrive early and be ready to start.

Bring Shovels, Picks and Rakes and Wheelbarrows. Remember to clean any soil off at home as we don't want any soil brought in from home. A good scrub with a wash down of Metho (70%) diluted with water (30%) is highly recommended to minimise the risk of spreading plant and soil born deceases and or introducing weeds.

Bring plenty of water and snacks to get you through.

Please wear full covered shoes. Preferably boots.
long sleeved shirt and trousers is recommended.
Gloves, hat and sunscreen are also recommended.

Council and Synergy need to know in advance the number of Volunteers that will be coming. With a bigger turn out means Council and Synergy will hire more staff for the day which also means we can get more done.
If too many people are turning up unannounced it is possible volunteers may be turned away. We do not want this to happen so please register if you are coming.

Some details may be subject to change. Please check for updates.

Yep I will be there and my son wants to come too. He thinks it will be fun.

I have been trying to find out what is planned but haven't had any feedback.

Had some feedback.

We will be meeting at the Soccer Fields on Barnet St.

We will be doing some planting to control the grass problem around the trail we put in below the fields.

In the remaining time we will do some refinements of some spots in these areas. Probably some rock armouring in areas which got muddy during the rain storms and I would like to put a berm in on the trail down to the gate. So get some features done.
