Calling all Harfielders
Join us Saturday 20June at 2pm
We NEED YOUR HELP to plant 5 biggish trees, into pre-dug holes, in Purley Park.
We would especially love some young strong dads! - the holes will be done, but we need to lift the trees and place them in the holes. We will be planting some lovely Mohagany trees, kindly donated by Kate Mason.
These trees will grow large and eventually be the replacement trees for some stage in the future when the gum trees, have aged to the extent when they will need to be removed.
We will be providing coffee and muffins for helpers. Bring your kids down and share in the greening of Harfield.

Residents would be required to use their own bats and balls BUT the table would be permanent (see photos below).
To test the concept PingOut are kindly letting the HVA use their wooden table in Hampstead Park on the 23rd, 24th and 25th of October.
