The members of WHJCG would like to thank everyone who supported our activities over the holiday period including the Wandong Community Carols, Wandong Pharmacy’s VIP Christmas at the Plaza and the Australia Day breakfast and ceremony. Thank you everyone who supported the Christmas raffle - without fund raisers such as this we cannot pay insurances or make improvements to our town. The raffle winners were Debby Roberts, Peter Gough and Ken Bausch all of Heathcote Junction. A big thank you to the Wandong - Wallan Lions Club for physically and financially supporting the Australia Day breakfast.

 

Huge congratulations to the Wandong - Heathcote Junction Australia Day award recipients, Kath Christensen, Alan Ryan and Maurie Scanlon. These three residents (aged 88, 88 and 84 respectively) are town treasures with a wealth of knowledge which we hope to record in the near future.

 

We would welcome any residents who could help keep our town tidy by attending our Clean Up Australia Day working bee from 9am to 12 noon Sunday 4th March. Refreshments, safety gloves and vests provided.

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 are a small group of volunteers keeping Wandong - Heath-cote Junction the place we can all be proud of and we would welcome any new members with the same vision.
