What a great idea Yarra Ranges Council. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸŒ³ Recognising that the recent storm was a very significant and unusual event, Council is providing a β€˜Special Storm Event Tree Branch Collection for residents throughout the Yarra Ranges who have been impacted by the storm.

πŸͺ“This collection will enable residents to remove bulky tree branches from their property that are up to around 200mm by 2m in length – think of the width of a football, and no longer than what could fit in a standard trailer. These branches should be left in a safe spot outside your property.

πŸš› Council will organise contractors to pick up the branches over a six to eight week period. Material will then be mulched and made available for community members to pick up from designated spots.

β„Ή For full details, please visit www.yarraranges.vic.gov.au/Council/Latest-news/Special-Storm-Event-Tree-Branch-Collection

It’s wonderful to see Community Bank Monbulk & District supporting 1st Kallista Scout group by helping them to purchase much needed equipment. πŸ‘1st Kallista Scouts started in 1923 and provides the scout experience to youth right throughout the Dandenong Ranges. They are part of a number of Scout groups within our area.
Community Bank Monbulk & District have supported 1st Kallista Scouts through its sponsorship and grants program to purchase items such as First Aid kits, camping equipment and more recently larger items such as seed funding for the new Kallista Scout Hall and an 8x5 trailer.
The new trailer has been a crucial support to the group enabling them to transport equipment for camping trips which in turn takes the pressure off parents as they don't need to provide their own trailers for the event.

Emerald Monbulk Wildlife Shelter are asking for donations after the storms that ripped through the Dandenong Ranges left many animals orphaned.

The shelter is full to the brim at the moment with animals needing care. Carol the lady who runs the shelter has a huge heart and cannot say no to an animal in need.

Carol does not receive any funding and does not have regular donations to rely on. She self funds the entire operation. The volunteers at the centre chip in as much as they can but there are so many animals needing baby formula at the moment, which is costing Carol a lot of money.

Carol and her volunteers would be extremely grateful for any donation you can afford to give.

Donations can be made via bank transfer to:
The Emerald Wildlife Shelter
BSB 083-638
ACC 85-495-5046

Thank you. 😊With the passing of that dreadful storm that ripped through The Dandenong Ranges a couple of weeks ago, the Shelter has had an abundance of orphaned baby animals being taken into care. I can personally say that this is the most animals I have ever seen at the shelter at one time.

For those who know Carol, she is a lady with the biggest heart and NEVER turns away any animal that needs care, even if the shelter is bursting at the seams.

Milk formula alone cost approximately $400 per 20kg bag, and with so many animals to feed, we are burning through it, not to mention medical, food and day to day expenses.
Carol does not receive any funding or has regular donations to rely on. She self funds this entire operation, as well as us volunteers chipping in as much as we can.

We don't like asking for donations, but we are in a situation where we want to help and support Carol and keep these babies going strong.

If you would like to make a small finacial contribution, we would be forever grateful. The Shelters Bank Details is listed in our bio.

Donations can be made via bank transfer to:
The Emerald Wildlife Shelter
BSB 083-638
ACC 85-495-5046

Your support means the world to Carol and her volunteers.
Thank you. (Promise to post more baby wombat videos soon).

Yes it’s very disappointing to see that someone has vandalised one of the bus stops in Lilydale.

I have no idea why some people damage public property. It’s just a very disrespectful thing to do. πŸ™After over 12 months of no damage the Main Street/Castella Street bus stop has had a panel smashed. It has been reported to PTV. There are plenty of cameras in the street so hopefully the culprit can be identified. There are people here who love this town and work to improve the township for the community. So frustrating to see this happen.

About Adrian Berry

I moved to Warburton in the Yarra Valley with my family in the middle of 2015. It was freezing and rained for the first 3 weeks and I wondered what I'd gotten in to. Since then I have fallen in love with the Valley, which is not hard to do, due to it's beauty and vibrant community.
