On a potentially wet Sunday 19th June, some 60 members comprising West Centenary Scouts/Cubs/Joeys, WaCC members, JRA with local residents, Water Wood with extended family and Cr Matthew Bourke turned up for park activities and the official naming ceremony.

A short window in the predicted wet weather allowed the scouts to demonstrate some of their activities such as damper making and for WaCC to install a further 300 plants in the water course.

The following 75mm of rain was a bonus for the newly installed plants.

A total of 18 volunteers ranging in age from 5 years old and upwards attended over the two days of idea weather and just about all tasks were achieved.  Wolston and Centenary Creek Ranger, Sean Marler and two visitors from neighbouring bush care groups continued creek erosion planting. This creek planting project will be ongoing over the remaining 150 metres of earthen drain as stone becomes available.

JRA was successful in securing an Energex $2,000 planting Grant for the Andaman Strip. The Beautification Committee are extremely pleased that Energex continue to be very active in providing funding for communities, businesses and schools to assist with tree and landscape planting.  These funds will allow the placement of a further 300 sound barrier and infill plants to compliment the existing 1300 species already established with funding from the Landcare grant.
