World Environmental Day, Every Day!


Did you know it was World Environmental Day (WED) yesterday? WED is all about encouraging involvement from the local community and celebrating the wonderful work of individuals.

We’re so lucky to live in such a beautiful area and sometimes we forget to stop and thank the people that help make this possible.

The wonderful work our local environmental groups do for our community doesn’t go unnoticed and we would like to personally thank each and every individual who has made a positive contribution within our region.

Who says volunteering has an age limit? These two little helpers did their bit in keeping Australia beautiful during last years Clean Up Australia Day.

Why wait for a special day to show your appreciation? Anyone can make small gestures of gratitude every single day of the year.

Do you know someone who works hard in the area, not expecting anything back for it? Why not tap them on the shoulder today and let them know what a great job they’re doing? It doesn’t cost anything and they are sure to appreciate it… Whether they admit it or not!
