Friday 13th March 2020 Meeting
Our Guest speaker, Ann Sutherland from the S.C. Council gave a very interesting talk on the families that have lived in the
heritage listed Bankfoot House. The initial family (with 10 children) and the 2 descendant families demolished quite a few different structures and built the current homestead. The existing plants have been self seeded from the original flora. The House is open at no charge to the public and would be well worth a visit.
Our Club member Yves Daniel (Danny) told us it was time to mulch in this current wet time and gave tips on lawn grubs and other garden pests , nut grass eradication and finished with a couple of jokes.
