The inaugural ‘Tastes of Naremburn’ event on Sunday last was a highly successful community event ably organised by the Naremburn Progress Association. WEPA was invited to run a stall and all involved found it a very enjoyable day – helped by a clear blue sky, pleasant temperature and delicious food smells wafting our way. The WEPA stall was opposite the jumping castle so we had a great opportunity to talk about the natural environment with parents and to hand out our free local wildlife cards to their children.
Lots of people dropped by the stall to buy wildlife greeting cards, sign message ‘trees’ to protest the trees lost at Cammeray and the threats to the Flat Rock Gully bush, to support the Save Sydney’s Koalas petition and to become WEPA members. Many just wanted to tell us about the flora and fauna they were seeing in their gardens or on their walks – which reaffirmed our view that people in the Willoughby city area cherish our bush and biodiversity.
In the end, we raised $300 and gained 16 new members. Here’s hoping the ‘Tastes’ returns in 2024!
Many thanks to Christina, Heidi, John, Kristina, Sue-Ellen, Dom and Geoff who all contributed on the day.
