The best roll up ever for a working bee turned up on Sunday to do their bit for Clean Up Australia and more importantly Clean Up ICC.
In three short hours all of them beavered away transforming the flood ravaged grounds from tree and rubbish strewn mess to the peaceful parkland of pre flood times. The ‘gleaners’ filled most of the bags provided with tidal debris from the sandy beach from where the ponroon used to be to the creek mouth. Unfortunately they were not able to move the water tank. The chainsaw men demolished all the fallen trees. The rakers, raked and the carriers loaded and unloaded Linton’s ute for its innumerable trips up to car park where most of the trees are stacked awaiting removal.
Many thanks to those who were there on the day and to those who have spent hours applying for grants,cleaning out the shed, removing and replacing the boats working on the electrics etc. etc.
It does not appear that any work has yet been done in the repair of the washed away road between the car park and the Boulevard. Let us hope that Radnor St. and the Canoe Club’s part of Witton Road can be dedicated for the use of pedestrians, cyclists and only the vehicles of those who have property in the immediate vicinity.
On the day members Mike Aldous, Carly Barque, Caroline Brooks, Linton Burns, Kevin Crisp, Robbie Edger, Sal Gardner, Terry Hutchinsoln, Claudette Prince and Noel Rush were joined by State Member for Indooroopilly Scott Emmerson and his wife Robyn, Walter Tayloy Ward Councillor Julian Simmonds, Ros Laundon: Joan, Rodger and Shelley Wilkinson from the Rainbow Forest Bush Care Group, Trevor Barque from Brisbane Canoeing, and ‘Chain Saw Man’, a neighbour, and Toby the dog. Thanks to all of the above for their efforts.
