This is a little thank you note for all the wonderful people who helped
with this last Christmas Goodwill Lunch at the Scotland Island Rural
It was a small one, but a very convivial and rewarding one indeed.
Both Julian and I were so thankful for the help from Gail Mackenzie,
Jillian Delamoneche, Sue Armstrong and daughter Jade, Colin and
Rosemarie Haskell who were extraordinary helpful and didn't even join
us at the table, and a very generous donation from Lexie Leblanc was
very much appreciated too.
All of these people gave their time and efforts to make this time of
the year a little bit more special for other people and that's really
The reward from all this generosity, wonderful community spirit and
generous donations made on the day, is given back to the Fire Brigade
to help support our wonderful Rural Fire members in this difficult time.
Again, thank you so much all of you for your help.
Nathalie and Julian Muir
Happy New Year!

Is Climate Change preying on your mind?
Are you anxious about the future?
Do you wonder what can be done?
IT’S TIME FOR ACTION.
Every little thing we can do will help.
And if we join with other people and take action together, we can make
even more of a difference - and it makes us feel a lot less helpless.
how to Reduce Plastic Waste.
yourself to buy less, and buy quality items instead of cheap flimsy
plastic. Ask yourself 4 questions,
Do I need it? Where does it come from? How long will it last?
Where will it go?
REUSE: Plastic bags can be washed out in the sink with your
dishes and reused. (Ok, maybe not the ones from the butcher.)
RECYCLE YOUR SOFT PLASTICS:
did you know you can collect your unwanted plastic bags and old
packaging and take them to the special ‘Redcycle’ bins at Woolworths or
Coles? If it can be scrunched into a ball it can go in these bins (but
NOT in your kerbside recycling). They will be made into plastic
furniture and other useful things. Get on board and save a turtle! More
