Tolmie Orphans Xmas Celebration

Are you going to be “home alone” on Xmas day? If so, why not join the Tolmie Orphans Xmas at the Community Kitchen? It is a relaxed day, where everyone contributes something towards lunch and shares the cost of the meat & pudding (usually around $15). BYO drinks. This wonderful day is intended for singles and couples or even small families – but not if you have a hoard who can otherwise have a very merry xmas at home together doing your own thing! If you would like to participate this Christmas, please phone either Linda or Michael on 5776 2113 by 15th December .

Dumping Rubbish – Not On!

Residents of Tolmie, both permanant & weekenders, should be reminded that the bins at the recreation reserve are NOT for personal use.   Sadly on too many occassions, the bins at the rec reserve, hall and CFA have been filled with rubbish left by residents, thus leaving no bin space for campers and users of the recreation reserve.   Although it may appear that there are ample bins at these facilities, only 3 bins are allowed to be placed out for each collection day.  The filling of these bins reflects badly on our facilities and ultimately can impact on the income received from users who pay for their use.  Please think twice – this is just not on!
