St. John's Church is holding its Spring Fair on Saturday 20, 9.30 to 1.30. Residents might like to spend a few dollars there to support the tremendous work the church does in providing food and other necessities to those in need.
Many residents in C5 and "old" Campbell are becoming increasingly concerned about the deteriorating condition of Hassett Park despite the efforts of residents in Saint Germain in weeding, mulching and cleaning. The irrigation has been erratic, either flooding or turned off, mowing is haphazard, weeds have been allowed to flourish and dead and dying plants have not been replaced. The park is still the responsibility of the Suburban Land Agency (SLA) which is required to bring it up to the standard in the approved, award-winning plans before handing it over to Transport Canberra & City Services (TCCS). This was expected to occur by last October but clearly the condition of the park is going backwards, delaying the transfer. Residents are conducting a letter writing campaign to the ACT Government to try to effect an improvement in the condition of the park. All users and admirers of the park are encouraged to write to the SLA (through its website) or directly to Yvette Berry MLA, Minister for Housing and Suburban Development to express their concern.
