PLEASE BE MINDFUL AND SLOW DOWN
We would like to remind everyone that the speed limit for driving past a stationary school bus is 20km per hour in both directions.
There are currently too many vehicles in the Glenorchy area not adhering to this. The police are aware of the issue and they will be monitoring the situation in the coming weeks so expect a police presence in the area.
Drivers not adhering to the 20km per hour law will be issued infringement notices and risk losing their drivers licence.
Please remember that the safety of our children is the responsibility of all road users.
Looking for someone who would consider caring for children from home. Age from 6 months to 5 years. Qualifications not necessary!
Contact 021778017 for more information.

It’s Daffodil Day time of year again…While many of us will probably have blooming daffodils by August, it’s always wonderful to support a good cause like the Cancer Society and get some late August cheer. This year the daffodils are 20 flowers for $20…to be delivered on Monday August 26th.
If you’d like a bunch or two (or ten!) or want to send them to someone as a secret, we’ll be very happy to oblige!
Daffodil Day sales are on from July 26 until August 8.
Please let me know if you’re interested and I’ll be happy to make sure they get to you in August. All of the proceeds go to the local branch of the Cancer Society and help to support care in our own neighbourhood. Last year we raised over $1500.

SEEKING A PLACE TO CALL HOME
I am soon to be working in the beautiful surroundings of Glenorchy.
I am a mature, quiet, creative type and when home am making art projects, writing, studying or baking.
I am looking for a place to call home which supports that lifestyle and allows me to relax and be myself.
I thoroughly love to look after the place I live in because it looks after me :)
I am a mindful eater (some would say vegetarian), an avid tramper and conscious consumer.
I am interested in renting either a house or a room.
Please get in touch if this resonates.
Thank you kindly
