Celebrating Gordon Public Park

Gordon Public Park’s Conversation Corner

Monday 13th December 4.30pm Gordon Public Park

Join poet, singer and storyteller Barry Gilson, federal MP Catherine King and others to celebrate recent investment in the park.

Barry Gilson will provide a Welcome to Country and perform a smoking ceremony before Catherine King officially opens the Conversation Corner, which was funded through the Australian Government’s Stronger Communities program.

The Ukestra will provide some entertainment and all being well we’ll have a sausage sizzle.

The park is a work in progress and, of course, there is more to be done but it’s good to take some time out to celebrate.

So come along!

Please register for catering and COVID purposes.

With funding from the federal government’s Stronger Communities Programme – Round 6 via federal MP Catherine King we now have a fabulous conversation corner at Gordon Public Park! Three garden benches – by Kropf – make a wonderful place to have a rest, have a chat , watch the tennis and enjoy the park.

Improved energy efficiency

We’re very pleased to announce that we have been successful in our application to the Moorabool North Wind Farm Community Fund (Goldwind Australia) for funding to improve energy efficiency at Gordon Public Park. This along with our recently installed solar system will help us cut down on costs and make the clubhouse more comfortable all year round.

Generous Donation

We received a mysterious call seeking a meeting with an unnamed group, not surprisingly we were a little hesitant but was assured it was positive. So on Sunday the 11th of July we met at the clubhouse. And what a surprise! The Gordon Hotel Sporting and Social Club had wound up and decided to donate their remaining funds to the Committee! We’re still considering a worthy use of these funds and are humbled by the GHS&S club’s generosity and trust in us.

Getting organised

Thanks to funding from the Moorabool Shire Council we have purchased and put together shelving to help us get organised and maximise our space. This afternoon we installed some shelves in the tennis club storeroom – lots more space now!

Thanks to Stephen for putting the shelves together – flat pack is never as easy as it seems!

Kitchen clean up

We had a mini working bee this morning to get ready for the new kitchen: cleaning up, emptying the kitchen cupboards, washing the crockery and packing it away. We’ll shift this sink so that it can be used by pottery group. It’s very exciting that plumbing work starts next week and the kitchen installation the week after that. Thanks to the pottery group for their big clean up and for shifting the pottery wheels and furniture.
