If I had a hammer

John’s Cellpic Sunday

The hammer and gavel were given to me as a bit of fun when I was the Chair of Clarence Landcare Inc. During the meeting I used to say I need a hammer and gavel to get this lot in order, especially when the debate was going on too long and around in circles.

One of the Landcare Officers bought it in one Christmas and said my wish was granted. I used it in a couple of meetings until I was told it was too loud and I was not to use it.

The Hammer and Gavel have a place on the marble mantle piece now.

Walking Squares #22 – Landcare, a resort and the beach

Becky’s #WalkingSquares

The last few days I have been totally immersed in my Regional Landcare Network Gathering. There were people from all over the north coast from Port Macquarie in the south to Tweed Heads in the north and out to the tablelands in the west.

It was held at Aanuka Resort in Coffs Harbour which is central to the region. The resort has great rooms for conferences, capacity to have around fifty people and a restaurant. There were presentations by the local Landcare Co-ordinators plus other invited guests plus a lot of brainstorming sessions to set our goals for the next four years which is our funding cycle.

This is a short post as I didn’t have time to wander about with my camera, so lets walk on by
