From Gaming, to Hammering, to Knitting & Sewing!!
John Glenn Park was brimming with scooter enthusiasts on the second Saturday in April, when the fluorescent psychedelically painted and disco lit Gaming Vault trailer pulled up. They quickly downed scooters to join in! Thirty local young people enjoyed the Shire sponsored gaming fun and sausage sizzle lunch.
John Glenn Park has been a site of much attention recently. It was identified in the Shire of Chittering Mountain Bike Trails Master Plan as the ideal location for a Dual Slalom Jump & Pump Track, works are currently underway to update the faded interpretive signage and the young scooter contingency gathered over 130 signatures from local residents seeking upgrades to the Muchea Skate Park / BMX Track. The petition has been presented to the Shire for consideration in the 2017 -2018 budget.
The Brockman Precinct came alive on Wednesday 12th with another thirty kids, and their parents, filling the Men’s Shed workshop and the Arts & Crafts’ workroom.
Those who entered the Bindoon Men’s Shed were delighted with the opportunity to try out some of the machinery and test their manual dexterity with hammers, screws and drills. Under the watchful eyes of the ever-helpful and cheerful Men’s Shed volunteers the kids produced a hanging plant picture frame to take home as a Mother’s Day treat.
The Bindoon Arts & Craft’s verandah was a picture of tranquillity, with the attendees concentrating under the gentle guidance of the local ladies sharing their sewing and knitting skills. Grateful thanks go to all of the Brockman Centre volunteers for once again delivering another very successful school holiday project.
