Invitation from our Federal Member

Following email was just received from Andrew Hastie:

This is a very quick, urgent email…

I want to invite you to a special community meeting with Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs Minister Alan Tudge tomorrow night to discuss the growing humanitarian crisis facing farmers in South Africa.

This is a developing situation and I’m very grateful to the Minister for agreeing to come to Perth and hear the concerns of our local community – many of whom I know have families affected by the crisis.

Here are the details for tomorrow’s meeting:


April 10, 2018 at 6:30pm – 8:00pm

The Lakes Theatre, Mandurah Baptist College 
Corner of Catalina Drive and Badgerup Avenue
Lakelands, WA 6180

If you’re interested in coming, you can RSVP here.

What a great morning

Peel Harvey Catchment Council turned on a great breakfast and gave locals 20 plants each this morning. About 100 people enjoyed the hospitality and the information provided by PHCC in spite of the cold and the wet. LCHRA President Jenny Rose, who also runs the local Landcare group, facilitated the event and the staff and volunteers from PHCC were highly organised and very informative.

It was great to see so many old and new faces coming together and making or renewing friendships. If you have any suggestions for events to bring people together please leave a comment or contact LCHRA through the web page. We would love to see 100 plus people at the hall on a regular basis.
