Weekly Update 14th-20th JAN 2013

Dear Mullum Garden Lovers,

Here is your weekly update for this week (January 14th -20th). Looks like we’re going to have a a bumper mango season this year, so if anyone would like to share some mango recipes, email them to (and they will appear in next weeks update) so we can make good use of this abundant delicious resource and hopefully waste none of it.

Graeme Williams has kindly offered his submission to use as a template, CLICK HERE ( to see it and here ( ) to share it on facebook.

Feel free to copy or edit the words if you would like to also send a submission into Council. It’s super easy as a template letter has been created and you can add your own words and email off to Council.

But be quick, the submission period closes on 28 Jan 2013!

It was only a couple of months ago that our community came together and helped stop a Dan Murphy’s store opening in our already alcohol-indulged town. KFC obviously needs to hear how strong our community voice can be as well!
