Giant Parramatta Grass
Information Session
Wandandian Progress Association Hall

Thursday July 7th
between 3:00 pm and 4:30 pm

Shoalhaven Landcare invites you to an information session on Giant Parramatta Grass (GPG)

At this session, you can learn about how giant Parramatta grass grows, how other landowners are tackling this weed, and what has been successful.

Landowners have found that GPG is a difficult grass to control.
Many landowners are unclear about how and when to control it and what is the correct strategy for their situation.

PROGRAM SPEAKERS FOR THE SESSION WILL INCLUDE
Amanda Britton Agronomist Local Land Services Berry Understanding the biology of GPG – how it grows; when are the important times for action and how this knowledge helps keep it in control
Max Boyd Farmer from Yatta Park at Conjola Max has worked to control GPG on his grazing property
Greg Thompson Brogers Creek Landcare Different strategies that Kangaroo Valley farmers are using for GPG control
John Kubale Bengalee Landcare Trialling the naturally occurring biological control Nigraspora

Several fact sheets and control manuals will be available at the information session. They are also available from Shoalhaven Council at Nowra or Local Land Services at Berry.

Please RSVP to Julia Banks, Shoalhaven Landcare Coordinator at coordinator@shoalhavenlandcare.org.au Landcare logo

This project is supported through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program

GAVIN MURRAY APPEAL

It is with deep regret that we advise the Wandandian Community of the tragic death of Gavin Murray, the proprietor of Wandandian Auto Dismantlers ( formerly Wandandian Wreckers), in the truck accident on the highway on Monday 21st December 2015. His loss will be deeply felt by all who knew him. He was a hardworking friendly family man and his family will have a lot to cope with over the coming months.

To assist them Wandandian Progress Association has set up a fundraising account with the Bendigo Bank and any donations can be made at any Bendigo Bank by mentioning “Gavin Murray”. Any donation large or small will go towards helping Alison with the children’s future.

We will also be holding fundraising events, the first of which will be a Golf Day at Sussex Inlet.

FIRE PERMITS

Fire permits are required if you wish to burn off during the Bush Fire Danger Period. The Rural Fire Service provides information regarding fire permits on their website. Please note that even though you may have a permit you are required to heed current Bush Fire Danger warnings, as well as to inform your neighbours and the RFS Nowra, Phone (02) 4424 4424, 24 hours before you plan to do so.

Also please be aware that Fire Permits for the Wandandian area are issued by volunteers from the Wandandian Brigade who fulfill this role in addition to their work and family commitments. Please be patient and recognise that they have to inspect your proposed burn before they issue the permit and will do so as soon as is practicable. Currently Wandandian Brigade has only 3 Permit Issuing Officers so their workload is considerable.
