Did you know that less than 30% of the electorate is likely to vote in the upcoming Local Government Elections on Saturday 21 October?
It’s not too late to engage with the process. To try and help, and in line with MiT’s sustainability remit, we created a small poll on our Facebook page and invited people to submit questions. The five we ran with are fairly representative of the types of issues lots of us are concerned about. They were sent to all the candidates for the Shire of Mundaring as listed on the WA Electoral Commission website.
These are the responses so far (in the order listed on WAEC site). Updated , as more arrive.
Thanks to Cheryl & the folks at Hilltop Grove in Mundaring, we’ll be able to get back to bag making. Unfortunately, because of school commitments, we can’t access Helena House Hall till Tue Oct 24. But we need more bags! We have a venue, so please come & join our small band of makers. Sewing, cutting, ironing … having a great time.
PLEASE SHARE with others.
No kidding, it’s true! Hands-on, hand-powered FREE fun and activities for all the family.
CROWDFUNDING UPDATE … Simon made his target !!!
Thanks to everyone who contributed
We are really happy to support a great local (& our great mate) Simon Cherriman with this crowdfunding campaign to assist with his eagle research. There’s only two weeks to go to reach the target and your donation will make all the difference. Click on the baby eagle chicks for the link to his Pozible page to see how it works.
Our next Sewing Day back in the lovely surroundings of Helena House Hall at Helena College Darlington Campus. First Tuesday of the month. Please check in at the Admin. Building first before coming to the Hall on the Lower Ground Level entrance from the rear is best.
TUES Sept. 5
10AM – 2PM
Helena College Darlington Campus, Helena House Hall
145 Ryecroft Road, Darlington, WA 6070
We need lots of these alternative bags to help our community transition to the plastic-free shopping habit of bringing their own bags. Come and join in some creative fun (with a social purpose). There are plenty of non-sewing jobs, but these things are always needed:
- sewing machine
- material (to donate)
These community-created Boomerang Bags are placed at participating local shops and are available free to Borrow & Bring Back. They encourage a habit of re-use amongst local shoppers and are part of a transitional strategy to encourage the use of natural alternatives AND Ban Single-use Plastic Bags in our Shire (and the world)!
This is a joint campaign by the Wasteless Pantry and Mundaring in Transition.
Hope we see you soon, so sign up for Workshop Reminders.
“Tomorrow : take concrete steps to a sustainable future” screening Wed 30 Aug, 7pm at the Connection Centre in Stoneville Rd.
We love opportunities for people to get connected with Nature … it helps us put our lives in a proper context. Don’t you love it that we live in an area where waterways & reserves have their own guardians! This local one is coming up soon, all free.
We’re taking the WA Local Govt. advice to heart and have just started circulating a PETITION TO BAN SINGLE USE PLASTIC SHOPPING BAGS in The Shire of Mundaring. The issue will be brought to a Council meeting in mid-August so please sign to show our Councillors that there is widespread support for this within the Shire. Find them currently at Kinfolk Cafe & Leaf & Bean Cafe opp. Woollies. If you want a petition for your business or can help collecting signatures in your area, just message us here at firstname.lastname@example.org
