Happenings along the Creek in 2022 and beyond -

Happy 2022 to all FOLKC members and supporters There are many more opportunities being explored for development along the Creek but you will need to watch this space!! FOLKC has secured additional sponsorship funding from TOYOTA, Hobsons Bay Council, Melbourne Water and another of our long standing major supporters - Cedar Meats - which will allow the continuing involvement by FOLKC in ensuring the above projects are progressing! I am actively seeking further funding from others at present to ensure the viability of FOLKC during this very exciting and extremely active development phase along our fabulous Kororoit Creek - Any takers?? Most of the additional funding will be used to keep existing sites (where access is allowed) at least tidy and not completely overgrown. [Read more...]
