Support Chloe's Fundraising Run

Chloe James says: "I'm running 200km this month to help support Ashton Hulme, a 12 year old boy with a rare form of bone cancer. This challenge is ridiculously hard, as I'm running on average 7.5km a day (I'm really not a runner, so this is hell!), but I'm doing this to raise much needed funds for such a brave lad.
If you want to read more, or would like to donate, I'd be so grateful. Thank you, the link to donate is below."

Rockhampton Festival will be 2022

We're sad to announce that we're not going to be able to hold the Rockhampton Folk Festival as we'd hoped in June 2021.
The timetable for lockdown easing and the likely continuing of social distancing means that we wouldn't be able to deliver the top-notch festival that we pride ourselves on in June.

More Than Weeds...

Have you ever wondered what that pretty flower in the pavement is? There is now a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of the wild flowers growing in the cracks in our urban walls and pavements. You may notice that some of the plants in Thornbury, where the pavement meets a wall, have been labelled in chalk. The chalk will wash off at the first shower of rain but meanwhile we hope your curiosity will be stimulated. If you would like to join in or have any questions email Jerry Dicker below.
