HAVE YOUR SAY
ON WHAT AND WHERE
NEW TREES PLANTED IN BERRIMA
COME ALONG TO THE VILLAGE MEETING
Saturday 26 November at 3pm, Holy Trinity Church Hall.
To celebrate Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee, by way of a national program of tree planting, the Federal Government has awarded the Berrima Residents Association a $20,000 grant, supplemented by additional Council resources and contract labour.
Although Council has extremely challenging tree planting guidelines to follow, we want to present to Council what we want to see in our village.
A working group, headed up by Andy Forrest (Apple St) has organised a community meeting to gain ideas from all residents.
Our aim is to make the plantings a strong visual Georgian look in keeping with the history of the village that will enhance the unique character that a visitor would also expect to see.
Some ideas so far are to plant trees on the eastern side of the Old Hume Highway in the main commercial part of the village, and or on the western side around Eschalot to the Pound and the gravel areas outside Schmokin’. One interesting idea is to establish a new park, Jubilee Park at the river end of Jellore Street and new plantings in Bridge Park just upstream from the Bridge below Schmokin’.
We look forward to more feedback – from everyone, residents and businesses alike, at the meeting at the Holy Trinity Church Hall Berrima, on Saturday the 26th of November 2022 at 3pm
