The next BUG meeting will be held on 22 Thursday March.
At the February meeting a motion was passed to set up a ‘working party’ with the aim to work on the invigoration of the BUG. Since then there has been no time to follow up on this matter (due to the involvement in the Sydney Road Street Party and the Moreland Bike count). We will use the time at tomorrow’s meeting to allocate tasks to people who are interested in helping out.
The meeting starts at 7.00 pm at the Edinburgh Castle Hotel – 681 Sydney Road, Brunswick (in the dining room next to the courtyard).
Food and drinks can be purchased there.
Today is the Moreland cycling count day where we work with council to count cyclists at 30 different locations throughout Moreland. You might see some volunteers counting so feel free to clap and cheer and if you have a spare minute maybe asking if they would like a ‘convenience break’.No comments
