 General Business

Peter attended Lions and Rotary to update them on our proposal to relocate the first government school to the heritage precinct.  He informed them that we might need help with this project and he received a positive response.  This old heritage building would otherwise have been bulldozed.           

Peter reported on a vandalism problem which has been created by children fishing in the grounds.  Rocks have been dislodged.  Covers around trees have been removed.  Sargent Mark is looking into solving this problem.  Ian suggested that this matter be included in the local police report.

The Australia Day Breakfast is to be advertised in the Jandowae Magazine and will be held on Saturday 26th.  Our next meeting will commence with a BBQ at 5.30pm for volunteers and members and final arrangements will be made for the Australia Day Breakfast.  Jan will invite Dave Tuppack to attend the barbeque. 

National Bank House:  Margaret suggested that we write a letter to the Council requesting that they buy these premises so that they can be turned into an Art Gallery and possibly Tea Rooms. 

The Business Group are developing a website and Ros is to approach them about the heritage precinct being linked to it.

A suggestion was made that Neighbourhood Watch could request that CCTV cameras be installed on the main streets of Jandowae. 

Peter stated that the timber under the buildings needs to be removed.  A ute would be needed to accomplish this.

Jade Ehrlich has put the tail on the windmill.

Heather is to write to the Council requesting that a councillor give the Australia Day Address.  We do not know as yet where the Council Awards are to take place.  A gold coin donation will be made for our breakfast.  It is hoped that we can supply damper and music will be provided by CD’s.

There will be a prize for the best Australia Day hat.  There will not be a milk separating demonstration.

The meeting closed at 8.35pm.
