Fitness Centre - This project is now complete and it is being utilised and enjoyed by the community.

Adopt a Road - The Adopt a Road is now in full swing, with Larmer Avenue, Paradise Beach Road, The Wool Lane, Anson Street, Palm Beach and the area of bush adjacent to the skate ramp and school at Francis Ryan oval, being cleaned. You will notice the volunteers cleaning in their iridescent yellow vests, with the Sanctuary Point Bendigo Bank road safety signs out. Please give our volunteers a toot hello as you pass by, they will appreciate it. More volunteers are required so we can expand the number of streets being cleaned, so if you would like to assist with the community clean up please contact Keith at the bank on 4443 9825 and he will put you in touch with the co-ordinators.

Community Garden - The Community Food Garden at Clifton Park is well under way with eight garden beds 5 metres x 1.5 metres, and four round beds now completed.

We are now ready to welcome the general public to become members of this worthwhile community organisation so you can participate in the camaraderie and enjoyment of growing plants and vegetables of all types. The concept of the garden is community based with shared produce, as opposed to individual plots.

Annual fees, which will enable you to be a full member with an input into the future development of the garden, are:

Membership - $5 joining fee

Membership Standard Fee Family $30 ...... Single person $20

Concession Fee Family $18 ..... Single person $12

The joining fee includes a family, however if the family wants more than one vote into the ongoing development of the garden an additional joining fee must be paid.

Membership can be paid in full or by instalments eg. 4 x $5, 2 x $6. Membership Application Forms are available at the Sanctuary Point Branch of the Bendigo Bank or Sanctuary Point Nursery. If you are interested in joining us please use an application form.

The steering committee would like to acknowledge early contributions from the Sanctuary Point Bendigo Community Bank for providing the money to build the surrounding fence, Nathan Parnell, our local specialised roof plumber who went out of his way to donate and deliver a large stack of roofing iron which has enabled us to build our initial eight garden beds and Garry Dean, the proprietor of Dean Signs, who donated our huge sign.

Learn to Ride - The necessary funds are now in place, so construction should commence early in the new financial year with completion expected a couple of months later.

Transport - The co-ordinator has been appointed and things are under way, the southern launch should take place soon.
