Community news – the Grey Lynn Working Bee

The volunteering by the  community just gets better every time and I am always grateful for the hard work and effort they put in at the most recent GREY LYNN WORKING BEE tidy up held on Sunday 10th June 2012.  Keep a lookout for the new blue Lobelias and white daisies going in the Urban Jungle garden.

Thank You to Mark McRae from Container Nurseries who have donated the  plants.

A BIG THANK YOU to the volunteers…..

Thank You to our very own Grey Lynn Icon musicians LYNN LORKIN and HERSCHEL who came along to serenade our volunteers with their talented singing whilst the volunteers pulled out weeds along Selborne St and the music gave the group extra strength to finish off the job.
