Planning for our annual garden competition, judged in September, is well underway and I told that this year we will have a new category for “Balcony Gardens.” There seems to have been a number of enquiries from keen gardeners who live in units or flats to be included. I look forward to meeting them on the presentation night.
The competition is open to all residents who have an interest in gardening or simply like to maintain a neat and tidy garden to complement their home. Gardens of all size and design are welcome. Brochures are still in the planning stages, but will be distributed next month to all letterboxes. There are great prizes to be won and the Awards Evening is a highlight on our civic calendar.
While we are on gardens it is not too late to get your Water Rebate applications in. Remember you must re apply each year. If you are not the list for 2011 your nature strip won’t be inspected. If you have misplaced the one you received in your letter box, again give my office a call and we can send one out to you.
