Hall News

The Cherry Gardens Memorial Hall is one of only a few halls in the Onkaparinga Council which is not owned by the Council.

Recently, on the 14th September, was the third Community Campfire.

After a long (and cold) winter we are finally seeing the days lengthen and the temperatures warm.

Plastic Waste

This July saw millions of people get involved in Plastic Free July. Plastic Free July is a global movement that encourages people to be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities.

Meadows Vet News

With all the rain we have had there is no doubt this will result in great pasture growth and this will dramatically increase the risk to horses and ponies of getting Laminitis and Founder.

There is an organisation called “Little Free Library” which has about 90,000 book exchange locations around the world.So, we thought it might be a good idea to introduce a Book Exchange in our local area.
