Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek Inc

Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek (FOLKC) is pleased to announce that Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (GMCT), financed through a State Government Cemeteries grant, is to manage the property bounded by Dohertys Road, Grieve Parade and Kororoit Creek in Altona North as a nature reserve park and green space for the community to use. A most important celebration and planting is being undertaken to celebrate this announcement in partnership with FOLKC major sponsors, City of Hobsons Bay, Melbourne Water and Toyota Australia. This event will take place along the Kororoit Creek and will coincide with Planet Ark’s National Tree Day on 28 July 2019 commencing with the planting of 2600 trees and shrubs at the community park at 10 am. On behalf of FOLKC, I would like to extend an invitation to you, and your family and friends, to be present on this important day to help us celebrate this very special event, details of which are on the included poster. At 12 noon, after the morning planting, you are invited to enjoy a free BBQ and the opening of the new community park. FOLKC is looking forward to seeing you at our National Tree Day Celebration on 28 July 2019. Bring your family and friends and colleagues and have a FUN day. If you were among the participants who attended last year and come to this year’s planting, you will be amazed by the changes in the environment along Kororoit Creek, thanks to your efforts. Planting will commence at 10 am with the meeting point and car parking in Dohertys Road, near the corner of Grieve Parade, Altona North. Mel Ref: 54: H 1. It is anticipated that the event will conclude around 2 pm. If possible, please bring a hammer and trowel and wear suitable clothing.
