This week’s recommended playspace: Montrose Community Playground.

This has to be hands down the best playspace in the hills and surrounds! Big call you say? I’ll tell ya’ why: it’s got it all. 5+ climbing frames of different types for all ages, 2 epic spinny things one which is ALSO a climbing frame, this amazing rotating swing the likes of which I’ve never seen before, a mini mock Montrose village, basically two entire playgrounds one for big kids and one for small, ample shaded seating, picnic tables, 2 bbqs, easily accessible public toilets.. A wonderland for peeps old and young, all with our majestic mountain as a backdrop.

Friends! Come along to this event on April 16 to learn all about the campaign to save Victoria’s last great forests and catch up with like-minded folk, feat. special guest Tria Manley from the Wilderness Society.

Good Nights - A Meet Up For Change MakersFriday February 19th, 2021, 7:30PMBelgrave Lake Park Cottage PlaygroupGood Nights is a bi-monthly meet-up for change makers hosted by Belgrave Lake Park Cottage Playgroup. Open to all community members.

THIS MONTH'S EDITION OF GOODNIGHTS:
Join us for an evening with Community Organiser Tria Manley from the Wilderness Society, to hear about how communities like yours are working together to save Victoria's last great forests.

Devastatingly, Victoria's native forests are still being destroyed to make cheap disposable packaging and worthless wood chips.

Come along to hear about how the Wilderness Society, community groups and a handful of other environmental organisations are working to protect Victoria's last great forests through the creation of the Great Forest National Park. The Great Forest National Park would connect up existing parks and conservation areas by adding 355,000 hectares of new protected forest.

We're making significant progress and would love to share how you can also be involved in the campaign to save the beautiful forests on our doorstep.

MORE INFO ABOUT GOODNIGHTS:

Come along to learn about important social and environmental issues, take tangible action and find out how you can get more involved.

Plus, recharge with like-minded folk over tea, wine and nibbles!

Our Playgroup believe that fostering connections in the community, being proactive in the world and using less resources makes for a better world and life.

Good Nights - A Meet Up For Change Makers

This week’s recommended playspace: Olinda Playspace. What a spot. What a view. What a win for hills locals.

Trampolines, cubby houses, two rad flying foxes, giant lizards, water play, slides galore, rope course, giant vomit inducing spinny thing.. Plus a coffee van!! It’s the works people.

Only downside: it gets insanely busy most days. They probably need about triple the number of swings to keep up with kiddy demand, and we all know how demanding kiddies can be...

Who else out there has incredibly fond memories of the cakes from the Women’s Weekly book on the left? The new one (on the right) is good.. But really can’t surpass the original! It’s hard to say who enjoys leafing through these books more now, me or my 3 year old..

Do you remember which cakes your parents cooked? Any faves?

My mum made the train on the front for my brother, bit of a highlight! Aaannndd she made the lolly shop for me, which was pretty rad.

Oh the original, now that’s bringing up all the feels! I remember getting the train one and some brilliant treasure chest cake full of gold chocolate coins and fake pearl necklaces. I used to toy around with baking fancy style drip cakes etc as a hobby but now I’ve got kids all I want to do is make these kind of cakes! They seem to love them so much more. My boy has already been requesting duck cake (thanks Bluey 😂🙄).
