1. It’s the long weekend! Loads on, cafes a hive of activity, go for a walk along our beautiful river, barbecues and, of course, there’s always something going on at our Grand Hotel Warrandyte whether it be sport on the big screen, entertainment, cold beer, tasty wines and great food!
2. Australia Day is Monday and Manningham City Council has some fun for everyone at MC2. Head there at 7pm Monday for free face painting, a sausage sizzle, magic show, family movie and lots more! Details:
3. We love our Warrandyte Community Bank Branch and we can thank the Bendigo Bank for its excellent scholarship program which has helped so many people in our community. So if you have your Uni offer and not sure how you’re going to afford it, apply right now – APPLICATIONS CLOSE TODAY – at
4. Yes, it’s still cricket season, but it’s also time to register for the 2015 footy season so the Warrandyte Junior Football Club is putting out the registration call. You can do this online from here
And while you’re at it, mark down in your diary Feb 8 (rego and meet the coach day) and Feb 22nd (season launch at Clifford Park). GO BLOODS!!!
5. The Diary is back (Feb 8) so if you’re a local business don’t forget to get your 2015 ad bookings in by no later than next Friday (Jan 30) and be a part of the first bumper edition of the year!
