LOOKING FOR ASSISTANCE TO VISIT A REMOTE SPOT UP THE REES
“Kevin Lawrence is hoping to visit Glenorchy on December 3/4th with his wife Barbara. Kevin’s brother Neville Lawrence and sister-in-law Margaret Parkinson were drowned while crossing the 25 Mile Creek in the Rees Valley in 1995 and Kevin and Barbara would very much like to visit the memorial cairn at the mouth of the 25 Mile Creek. They are seeking local assistance to help them achieve this - both Kevin and Barbara are deaf and are unfamiliar with the area. If you have the time, skills or equipment to offer help to Kevin and Barbara on these dates, either by walking with them from Muddy Creek or by offering to drive them by 4WD up the the river, then please contact them at email@example.com Many thanks.”

GLENORCHY COMMUNITY SWIMMING POOL
The pool will open on the 1st December!
We will be using the same lock this year therefore if you haven’t returned your key to the Trading Post please be honest and pay for the new season and let the girls know your key number.
We don’t get a lot of funding for the pool. The cost of the keys pays for the heat pump to keep the pool nice and warm.
A big thank you to Scott and Naomi Coates, Kay Mason, Ann Margaret Aitken and Kyomi for their volunteer help last year.
We are looking for some more helpers this year for taking covers off early morning and put on in evening etc. Please get in contact with Naomi 0274649182 if you’re able to help.
