PUBLIC TOILET AT LAST

After years of lobbying, we have finally seen a second toilet installed at the Wandong Heath-cote Junction Bushfires Memorial Park. The toilet stop is the busiest in Mitchell Shire so the second toilet is certainly a welcome addition.

CANCELLED EVENTS

Due to the coronavirus the WHJCG has had to curtail most of its activities. The Easter egg basket raffle was drawn early with the winners being Mrs Zandt (Broadford), Noelene Pyle (Kilmore) and Kath Christensen (Wandong). Our sausage sizzles at the IGA and Bunnings have been suspended until further notice and ANZAC day commemorations at Wandong cancelled. Even our rubbish clean ups around town have been curtailed but we try to keep the town tidy despite the efforts of the empty wine cask person who now throws the casks on Rail Street. Very disappointing that this must be one of our locals. Don’t forget to notify the EPA if you know the perpetrator.

POCKET MONEY FOR TEENAGERS

We would like to employ any Wandong Heathcote Junction teenager who would like to earn $25 pocket money for three hours community work on a Saturday or Sunday but this too has to be postponed.

MURAL FOR WANDONG

The last Whats News delivered exciting news about a local project that would provide a mural depicting Wandong circa 1900. The mural would be a real attraction for residents and visitors however three suitable sites along the Epping Kilmore Road have been rejected by Mitchell Shire Council. Would you believe the Shire believe building walls at Davern Reserve would be suitable sites - sorry but yes you would believe it. The WHJCG, the WHJ History Group and Wandong Public Hall committee have faced similar Shire opposition in the past and will now try other avenues to have this fantastic mural and attraction erected in for greater public viewing.
