Monday is the start of National Volunteer Week - a chance to stop and celebrate those who give up their time to help others. Do you volunteer, and what motivates you to do so?

Here's a neat bit of work by WCC, in Para St Miramar. Residents wanted the big tree in the foreground of the first photo cut down as it obscured their vision when reversing out of their driveway. I was against removing a mature tree which is one of a long line. Solution: move the footpath away from the tree!
The second photo shows the view from other end of the works. The new kerbline simply extends the previous build-out at the zebra crossing, improving visibility and safety for everyone . One car park lost, one tree saved!
Hi everyone...it's a great idea to have your house cleaned now before Christmas is upon us....it's one less thing to worry about and when your house is sparkling everything else is easier to manage. $30ph....text me on 0273 129 209....loads of references available. Niki.
