We are always looking for people to join our committee to help contribute to improving Hackett. Membership of the committee is not time consuming. We aim to meet on the second Tuesday of the month (except July, December and January) 7.30-8.30pm in the room behind the main hall at the Blue Gum Community School. If you would like to join, please send a request for a nomination form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are very pleased to have Lucy Hopkins as our guest speaker to talk about the Adopt a Park project – Hackett shops gardens. Lucy and Maree Wright submitted an application early this year for a grant to engage a landscape architect to work with the community to develop a plan for enhancing the gardens at the shops. The HCA is managing the funds for this grant.
