Last Summer Busy Bee to Tidy Up Your Trails.
New trails west of Master’s Road will be worked on at next Busy Bee. See map attached Sat 27th and 28th November 8 am to 10 am. Only for 2 hours each day in the morning. Sausage sizzle afterwards!! The Plan will be focusing on the bridle trails that have not been worked on for many years, west of Master’s Road. This is the opportunity for residents on the west side to become involved on the day and bring any stumps/ branches from your back trails and drop them onto the bonfire pile in the 70 acres.
Every year the trails are looking cleaner, safer, and prettier. There could be a Tidy Trail Competition next Winter!!
For insurance reasons, All volunteers must register from 7.45 am both mornings, prior to beginning to work on the trails. The DDRA Committee then knows who and where everyone is working for safety reasons.
Car and trailers will be crossing Master’s Road, so caution will be paramount. We need competent volunteers with chainsaws, and trailers on cars, plus many hands to make it light work for all.
On Sunday a few fallen branches and trees inside the 70 acres, and up near Biriga brook can be picked up as well while to main focus will still be working on the west side trails.
People with wiper snipers are welcome to come either day to tidy up around the cross country jumps. The grass will be sprayed afterwards. The open spaces will soon be slashed again with our DDRA tractor for the last time for Summer. If you have a concern on any other bridle trails where work should be done. Please contact Peter Benson on 0404222906 or Brian Schapp on 0406955504
Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th November 2021 8.00am -10.0am Meeting at the Evening Peal Car Park from 7.45am for registration. Remember to have enclosed boots, hats, sunscreen etc and bring along water bottles. A sausage sizzle will follow afterwards at the shed, a good way to catch up or meet new neighbours! You can RSVP from the website for catering purposes. https://www.ddra.org.au/ddra-up-coming-events "Volunteerism is the voice of the people put into action. These actions shape and mold the present into a future of which we can all be proud." Helen Dyer
PS: You don't have to be a DD resident to be involved. Anyone that horse rides, walks, runs or cycles on the bridle trails is welcome to come along and join in the fun of volunteering.
Thank you for your support. DDRA Committee
