The first working bee

The first Sustaining the Williams Valley working bee on Sunday 15th January was a great success. A solid group of twenty plus turned up to give their time and energy beginning the process of restoring the Williams River and focusing favourite spot for people in Dungog – Frank Robinson Park.

The work involved weed clearing to get ready for new planting to compliment a new designated RV area that Dungog Council is planning.  While the workers enjoyed a sausage sizzle, local business man Jim Olsen spoke to the group about his memories of growing up in Dungog when the park was a popular swimming spot with a diving board and even lights at night.
