During a severe storm in April six trees came down including three over the walking track. They had to be removed. Plants sold well on Kingston Festival Day at the Gerry Green oval. An Open Day was held on Saturday 19th April at Bradshaw Park. A fine day was laid on for this event. Further reports awaited!
The recently appointed new manager of the Park will shortly be going on long service leave as will several other Park staff. City of Kingston sought plants from the Braeside Nursery to plant on a roundabout in Chelsea and in the sand quarry area near Henry Street, Clayton.
Information has not been supplied to the committee as to the progress and status of the negotiations between Melbourne Parks and the sand mining company as yet.
Signage on Drains on the Foreshore
There is some progress from Council on the placement of the signs warning swimmers of the danger of swimming near drain outlets on the beach after heavy rain, however not all drains will have signs since Council officers feel that some drains very small local catchment area. Melbourne Water appears to be very reluctant to place a sign on their monster drain at Mentone warning people not to swim near the outlet.
As part of MBCL’s six hours of consultation with SERCO a meeting has been arranged with a Natural Resources staff person to discuss management plans for the north bank of Mordialloc Creek upstream from Chute Street.
