FIREREADY session at Wandong Plaza and BBQ Raffle

We had a lovely FIREREADY day at the Wandong Plaza, spoke to many locals and heaps of kids got their face painted by Bitty Betty’s Facepainting , had a jump on the jumping castle and got to squirt the hose to put out the fire in our “house”. The Winner of our BBQ Raffle was Carol of Wandong, who was very excited.









Each month a small team of volunteers distributes “Whats News” to Wallan, Wallan East, Upper Plenty, Whittlesea, Kilmore and Broadford as well as delivering it to letter boxes in Wandong – Heathcote Junction.

We desperately need more volunteers to deliver to letter boxes in Wandong – Heathcote Junction and ask if anyone can spare a few hours a month on a Thursday and/or Friday.

If you can assist with deliveries in your street or on any of the following streets, please contact “Whats News” on email or telephone Allen (0417 832 411) or David (57 871 738).

Residents in Wandong - Heathcote Junction, particularly in Affleck Street and Dry Creek Crescent are getting no response from authorities to curtail the noise, parking problems and destruction of the Mt Disappointment State Forest by rail bike and 4WD drivers. It is no longer safe to walk or horse ride on the mountain trails due to these uncontrolled vehicles. Mt Disappointment could rival the Dandenongs for beauty and tourism but no authority seems prepared to stop the damage.
