Free bicycle maintenance and skills workshop this week

 

 

 

 

On Wednesday evening, 11th December, the Mount Alexander Shire Council are holding a free Bike’n’BBQ workshop at the school from 6pm.

 

With our proximity to the Great Dividing Trail and many other great cycling options, this is a chance to learn about basic bike maintenance and all sorts of other tips so you feel confident while you’re out and about exploring the great outdoors. Suitable for beginners to serious riders.

It’s great to see the pride our service providers / tradies feel being involved in the refurbishment of the Fryerstown School.

Facilities Coordinator Appointed

We are pleased to announce that Denise Button has been appointed to assist in developing and facilitating community activities programming, and to coordinate hire and use of the old Fryerstown School facilities.  Many of you will know Denise who has a professional background in this field and has been heavily involved in many volunteer activities in the region since she came to live here. We welcome her and wish her every success.  I am sure she will appreciate your ongoing ideas, help and support to make the old school ‘hum’.  Denise can be contacted on 0413 563404 or by emailing FryerstownSchool@gmail.com.
Denise says, “I’m excited to be involved in exploring and developing appropriate uses for the old Fryerstown School. It is a unique building in a unique location which is steeped in history.  It has such potential to become a great space to bring people together for social, educational and artistic pursuits and I have been passionate about this since I moved here 12 years ago.”

We had two outstanding final applicants for the position which made it a difficult decision for the team, including Ron Moore as an independent Chairman. We are extremely fortunate to have such talented people who have passion for Fryerstown and for building our community.
