Fern Tree Community Association

Annual General Meeting

Wednesday 28th April, 7.30pm
at the Community Centre

AGM including FTCA report and election of new Committee

Alderman Jeff Briscoe has accepted our invitation to be guest speaker at the meeting. Ald Briscoe as Chair of Council’s Parks & Recreation Committee will provide an update on the proposed Hall’s Saddle car park development, followed by a Q&A session.

Fern Tree residents are encouraged to attend the meeting and support the Community Association. The AGM will be electing a new committee as all positions will become vacant. Whilst it is hoped that some committee members will continue, the election of a President, Vice President and Public Officer is crucial.

Be an active participant in your community - come and join the Committee!

Please consider offering to stand: it is very rewarding and gives you the opportunity to contribute to the community. You will get to know your neighbours and gain a deeper understanding of the issues affecting your neighbourhood.

The committee meets each month on the second Tuesday, 7.30pm at the Fern Tree Community Centre. Please join us, and look for our regular events!!

Fern Tree Bushcare Weed Booklet

Fern Tree Bushcare Group have published a new edition of the Fern Tree Weed Booklet which you can download here, or if you would like a hard copy email bushcare@ferntree.tas.au and we will deliver one. There are 10 additional weeds added to the booklet, making 30 in all that we really don't want to see getting a hold in Fern Tree or on kunanyi/Mt Wellington.
