Rick and Robyn Counsell will host a working bee at 27 Burns Crescent Chiswick at 9.00am on Saturday 1 February 2020. If there is interest or preference the event could be held on Sunday 2 February instead, or as well as, on Saturday. The working bee is to manufacture nesting boxes for Antechinus and Pygmy Possums in Kosciuszko National Park. All tools and components will be provided - except safety glasses and hearing protection. We are not sure how much of either will be needed but if you have them, bring them. Contributions towards the cost of components will be gratefully accepted. We will provide a sausage sizzle (Bunnings style) lunch for a donation - which will be passed on to Laoko. Please let us know by email (warwick@gaxzw.com.au) or by phone (0419 361 269) if you are coming so we can equip the assembly line and finalise the catering. RandR
