WHEN at Back to West Hobart Day, 15 June 2011

The Transport and the GAF groups presented some fantastic displays at the Back to West Hobart celebration day. We were given a corner in the Lawrenny Court hall and made the most of it!

We had a display of the Walking West Hobart map and had lots of people peering at it. Margaret and Di were able to show many current and former residents the early drafts of our professionally drawn map, which was very exciting. We collected a couple of dozen new ideas for shortcuts and points of interest for the map!

Meanwhile Miriam set up an eye catching display promoting vegie gardening and the GAF group. The pile of Greg's "What to Grow When in West Hobart" were greatly appreciated and disappeared quickly into people's baskets and pockets.

It was a valuable day for promoting our group, and lots of WHEN flyers were taken by people. It was also a fun day, with activities and entertainment happening throughout the day. The organisers, in particular Cynthia Archer, deserve hearty thanks from the community for making it happen.
