Covid Community Update
Thanks to everyone who attended the Lake Clifton-Herron Australia Day
celebration. It was a great morning with about 65 attendees. It was
lovely seeing families coming to celebrate Australia’s Special Day.
Thanks for the great help from all the ladies in the kitchen , the
“boys” on the BBQ and every one who helped set up the tables, clean up,
etc. Congratulations and thanks to our flag raisers Susan Morris and
Karena Silbereisen for their dedicated Wildlife Carer activities in
raising possums and kangaroos. A heartfelt thank you to our fire service
attendees and to all who donated to the Fire Appeal Fund with $320
raised. The major charities were considered for your donations but we
believe that the Saint Vincent de Paul Society will achieve the best
use of your generous donations.
Thanks to everyone who attended and made this a great occasion.

These two article from the Financial Review are the best I have seen on the current problems. They cut through the political garbage and the misinformation put about by people with no knowledge. As we all live in a fire prone area we need to know what really drives the problems and what can, can’t and should be done to minimise them. I hope these help to quiet some of the alarmist discussions and keep us all a bit more balanced.
I am still a big believer in fuel reduction but please don’t just burn you property without getting advice and have plenty of help on hand. Even in winter things can get out of control.
LCHRA says a big thank you to the Shire of Waroona for erecting kangaroo warning signs in Lake Clifton, including on Lake Clifton Road.
This is another success for LCHRA as we have been advocating for these signs which will alert locals, visitors and tourists to be alert for kangaroos. The Shire of Waroona is still working with Mains Road WA to get the same signs on Old Coast Road in the Shire of Waroona.
The City of Mandurah has also erected kangaroo/emu signs on roads in Herron.
This was the official opening of stage 1 of the Lime Kiln project in May 2019. Now stage 2 is set to go ahead in 2020.
LCHRA has been awarded a $20,000 grant by the Communities Environment Program 2019-20 to extend the Historic Lake Clifton Lime Kiln Day Use Site, on Newnham Road, to include a walk trail around the settling ponds. This will incorporate historic, Aboriginal and plant information. This will be a joint project with the Dept of Biosecurity, Conservation and Attractions.
Attached is a situation report from the Department of Health. It’s a bit long but it does contain some useful tips and advice for surviving the next few days. Stay safe.

FRAGYLE are hosting a meeting with the Department of water regarding the underground aquifer, our water supply here at Preston Beach – and yours at Lake Clifton? – and the threats of climate change and development proposals.
It is an open meeting and we would love to invite all people in Lake Clifton who are interested in the Lakes, the Ecosystem, the aquifer and the water supply for the future. We are concerned about Doyle’s quarry proposal and its potential affect on the Lake system – and the area – and the extraction for agriculture at the southern end of Lake Preston.
If any of your people have any questions they are most welcome to come and ask them.
A Herron resident has asked us to seek the services of a gardener one day per week. Unfortunately, his wife is unwell and he needs some help but is willing to pay. If anyone is interested please message me with some details about yourself, availability and charges so that I can put you in touch with this gentleman.
