Wamboin Home Produce Market

The monthly Produce Market is back again after its winter break, at the Wamboin Community Hall, 9.00 am 'til noon.

As this coincides with the brigade-led community-wide Bush Fire Information session at the Fire Station there will be no separate information stall at the Market on this day. Instead, all enquiries will be accommodated within the larger Fire Brigade Community-wide Bushfire Information Session planned for the day.

WCA Spring Talks Series, 2017
Talk #1 "The Snake Talk"

Wayne Alford, Snake Coordinator, Wildcare, returns as 2017’s first guest speaker. Wayne’s snake handling demonstration and compression bandaging of an enthusiastic volunteer at his 2015 Spring “Snake” Talk enthralled and entertained the audience, especially the children.

Wayne’s presentation could literally save a life – yours or your pet’s! Wayne will talk about snake safety, first aid, tips for living with snakes at your place and of course he’ll answer all questions. He will also have recommended snake bandages for sale at $20 each (cash only).

Children are particularly welcome. Sorry to disappoint, but, no live snakes are brought into the Wamboin Hall!

The talks will be preceded by a short meeting of the WCA, and will be followed by refreshments and an opportunity to speak to the presenters, meet more of your neighbours and get to know what’s really going on in your community - it's where we all live!
