Bill Matheson’s Memorial Planting Day

Rockleigh Saturday and Sunday, 7–8 July 2018

We have decided on the weekend of July 7th and 8th for the annual planting day at Rockleigh, which this year is in memory of our much loved and respected Bushland member and Director, Bill Matheson.

We welcome you all to come to our Rockleigh property to help with the planting and celebrate Bill’s contribution to our company. Bill and Doreen’s friends and fellowship group from the Magill Uniting Church will be joining us on the Sunday.

*We will meet at the old campsite.

*For those able to assist with planting please bring your tools and other suitable equipment, and your lunch. Long-handled (post hole) shovels and mattocks or hoes are best for the sandy ground at the planting site.
