Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets in our Easter egg basket raffle which raised much needed funds for the WHJCG. Without your support, much of the projects and maintenance carried out by the WHJCG would be impossible. The winners of the raffle were:

1ST - Mr Magpie (Eucalypt Grove, Heathcote Junction)

2ND - Ken Bausch (Rail Street. Heathcote Junction)

3RD - Sue Bausch (Rail Street, Heathcote Junction)

4TH - Rebecca (Station Avenue, Heathcote Junction)

The WHJCG has written to Mitchell Shire Council asking for town maintenance to be carried out and for projects to be included in the 2018/19 budget. We can see some action taking place as a result of our letter but there is still quite a bit outstanding.

The WHJCG , supported by the Wandong History Group and individual residents, does not agree with certain aspects of the Wandong - Heathcote Junction Structure Plan, particularly in regard to the zoning of the Sunnyglen area at the end of Affleck Street, Wandong. The zoning of this area as Township Residential is completely out of character with surrounding larger blocks and with one entrance / exit to the estate with a Bushfire Overlay Management in force, there does not appear to be much sense in allowing a possible 80 lots. The issue will now be heard by a Planning Panel in early May.
