Flood cleanup

SOWN activities are suspended until further notice due to flood cleanup. There will be some access to the nursery by arrangement and you are welcome to do what you can on your site if you can't get to the flood cleanup sites.

If you want to volunteer for the cleanup here is the info:

For those people that wish to volunteer and help with the recovery efforts, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th Council will open fully staffed registration centres at the following locations:

It is essential for those that wish to volunteer to bring along their own tools to assist with the clean-up, wear sun protection as well as long pants, long sleeves, gloves and closed in shoes. Also bring photo ID with you to assist in the registration process.
