Next Meeting of the WTCA Inc.
21st of July, 2002
Many thanks to everyone who took part in the very successful
working bee on the creek on Sunday the 26th of May.
We managed to get plant over 50 more trees and shrubs, pull more
rubbish from the site and survey the creek upstream and down to
identify future sites requiring work. The follow up rain that we
are now enjoying couldn't have been timed better if we had ordered
A good soaking at this stage will help all the plants become estabilished.
Special thanks to the members of the University of Queensland Bridge
Club from coming along last Sunday morning to work and also for
providing the barbque for volunteers that we enjoyed afterwards.
The Bridge Club's continuing support of this project is greatly
valued and we appreciate you finding time for projects like our
in your busy schedules. Plans of the next working bee will be forwarded
when we have them in place. Thanks again Regards Morag.

For creek working bee enthusiasts, a schedule of forthcoming
The next one is on Sunday 26th May (meeting at 9.00, in
the park on the corner of Exmouth and Gower Streets), and is a tree
planting and creek walk to survey the creek from head waters to
Miskin Street. All welcome!
This rehabilitation work is progressing wonderfully, with lots
of successfully established plantings and effective clearing. The
madeira vine which infests much of the creek banks takes a lot of
beating, but we are making good progress.
Dean - Thanks for your
support. Think globally, act locally.
Speech by Ronan Lee
information about your local councillor Judy Magub
"Mr LEE: I commend the work carried out by two other groups,
the St Lucia History Group and the Toowong History Group, which
meet regularly. The Toowong group is in the process of preparing
for the centenary of Toowong next year. We are publishing a book
about the history of Toowong and I am playing a small part by coordinating
the chapter on education in Toowong. I compliment the hard work
of Leigh Chamberlain, a local resident who has been a long-time
supporter of historical activities in the St Lucia and Toowong areas."
