Knapsack Meeting Location - Southern end of Barnett St


All are welcome!!!

Start at 8:00am at the southern end of Barnet St, (below the oval).

Plan of works: Upgrade and complete the trails around Knapsack Oval.

Blue Mountains City Council have hired Adrian from Synergy to lead the Maintenance days.

Trail maintenance will only run for 4hrs. To get the most out of it, please arrive early and be ready to start.

We will be trying to finish the new bit of trail we started last build day, with this complete we will then close the parallel trail that runs through the muddy bog.

Bring Shovels, Picks and Rakes. Remember to clean any soil off at home as we don't want any soil brought in from home. A good scrub with a wash down of Metho (70%) diluted with water (30%) is highly recommended to minimise the risk of spreading plant and soil born deceases and or introducing weeds.

Bring plenty of water and snacks to get you through.

Please wear full covered shoes. Preferably boots.
long sleeved shirt and trousers is recommended.
Gloves, hat and sunscreen are also recommended.

Council and Synergy need to know in advance the number of Volunteers that will be coming. With a bigger turn out means Council and Synergy will hire more staff for the day which also means we can get more done.
If too many people are turning up unannounced it is possible volunteers may be turned away. We do not want this to happen so please register if you are coming.

Please click the link to say you will be coming or send an email to [email protected]

Some details may be subject to change. Please check for updates.

Well I am looking forward to this.... weather should be comfortable too. If we get all this done I think the recent works we have been doing will make a lot more sense.
