Council selling off reserves

With the abundance of still vacant land available for sale in Venus Bay, it's amazing that the South Gippsland Shire Council is selling off the reserve blocks in the town.

The only conceivable reason is greed on behalf of the Shire for the money generated by their sale. There is no pressing need for more land to be made available.

Developing these pockets deprives the native animals of a home and makes Venus Bay a less attractive place to live and holiday. One of the charms of Venus Bay is it's low population density and quiet environment.

See the Save Our Venus Bay Reserves site below for more details and a copy of the petition opposing this practise.

Le Tour de Tarwin

The 2008 Venus Bay to Tarwin Lower Bike/Walk Tour and Picnic will be held on Easter Saturday, March 22nd at 12 noon. Register from 9am at Beach One Bar.

It starts at Beach One Bar at the Venus Bay shops and depending on who you talk to, either races or meanders to the Long Table at Tarwin Lower for a picnic lunch.

It's BYO drinks and lunch - if you forget, there's a sausage sizzle.

$5/person or $10/family in support of the Tarwin Lower CFA.

Bike riders must wear a helmet.
