The Community Garden makeover is happening!

You can see the new shade sail.
Work is progressing on building up the garden beds, with deliveries of new soil next Wednesday and/or Thursday. This will be followed by new plantings.
We are also repairing/replacing the watering system and adding a water pump, so that watering can happen from the water tank, and will be automatic.
As soon as we know when the beds will be ready, we will be looking for volunteers to do new plantings, and then for a volunteer group to take over garden maintenance.
If you are interested in joining us on Wednesday 27 and/or Thursday 28 March
Phone FNC: 6555 4351

Many thanks for your patience over this time. When we have finished, the garden will be bigger and better than ever!

Breast Screen

BreastScreen NSW returns to Forster.
The BreastScreen NSW mobile breast cancer screening bus will be at Tuncurry Bowling Club, Tuncurry from the 21st of January 2019 for a limited time.

Women in NSW have a 1 in 9 risk of developing breast cancer in their lifetime.
BreastScreen NSW offers a free, high quality service for the early detection of breast cancer.
When breast cancer is detected early most women can return to a normal life after treatment.

While women aged 50 to 69 years are particularly encouraged to attend, all women aged 40 years or over are eligible for free screening mammograms.

Women should have regular screening mammograms every two years – once is not enough.
Having a mammogram isn’t difficult and early detection is vital.
Take advantage of this free service while the bus visits Forster.
Simply call 13 20 50.
