Moreland Mayor Meghan Hopper and Wills MP Kelvin Thomson joined the Fawkner community in a planting mini-parade and celebration in December 2014

Welcome to 2015 and February launches with a busy schedule of community events which Sustainable Fawkner will be involved in.

BBQ Fundraiser
Firstly, the Fawkner Community House is having a Bunnings BBQ fundraiser on Saturday February 14th and is looking for helpers. Soon the Community House will be running two Community sites, when it takes over the old Fawkner Kinder site. Fundraising will help us run a diverse and accessible range of services and activities.

There are lots of jobs and shifts to choose from:
8 -11am
11am-1pm
1pm-4pm
We also need a ‘taxi driver’ to go get people and things as required on the day, help setting and packing up and help buying things beforehand. If you can help (and we really, really need as many people as possible!) please contact the Community House on 9357 4631 or reply to this email. Unfortunately, sausages and BBQ are not halal, but hopefully there is a suitable job for everyone! And please pass the word on to others.
