A “Friends” group

for the Charles and Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve?
This little environmental reserve is situated in the heart of Highfields.
Would you be interested in joining an informal group which does a bit of this and that on its behalf?
As the idea stands at present, the group would be quite informal, and have no joining fee, no office bearers, no funds, and therefore no tedious meetings.
It might meet perhaps once a month (Weekday? Weekend?) at the reserve. Activities could include a brief working bee (pulling out weeds and picking up rubbish), a pleasant morning tea or afternoon tea meeting like-minded people, and advocating on behalf of the reserve. You might like to become a member, and join in just one, or all, of these activities - and perhaps others as well as the group decides.
The"Friends" would work in co-operation with TRC’s Parks Community and Volunteer Support Facilitator. Members would be listed as volunteers for TRC, and would be covered by TRC’s insurance for its activities.
If interested, you could talk to me or Judi Gray at the Clean Up Australia Day event at the reserve  this coming Sunday (2 March, 7.00-10.00am), or send either of us an email?
