My kids are making a rubber band ball but will need HUNDREDS of bands to make it happen. Does anyone have a stash looking for a new home? We can pick up in the coburg/newlands area. 

Thanks heaps,

Awesome local yoga classes at the very lovely, air conditioned, Coburg courthouse!

6.30pm - 7.40pm 

They will run every Monday and Thursday during school terms.

You can pay by the term or come as a casual but please book as numbers are limited.
It is a slow-flow vinyasa style yoga, which can be challenging, but the classes have heaps of instruction and there are often options to take it a little easier. 

There are also options to really challenge yourself, to really strengthen and stretch.

Classes are designed to make you feel better inside and out!

tel. 0426 502 594
$20 casual classes
$180 for 1 class per week 
$300 for 2 classes per week

Friends of Edgars Creek


Hi All,

Happy new year to you all. I have been lucky enough to have been off work and enjoying the beach around Narooma (southern NSW coast). Hope that you have all had a chance to enjoy some down time too.

Our Annual General Meeting has been scheduled for Sunday February 17th at 12pm – all welcome. We will meet at the old Ronald Street bridge area. Please bring your own chair if you want one (I'll be happy with grass) and sun hat.
Should the weather be wet - the meeting will be under the old Kodak bridge. If it is a forecast stinker with high fire danger we will advise of a more suitable alternative. All positions on the Committee are vacated on an annual basis and nominations are welcome for all positions (President, Secretary, Treasurer). Voting rights at the AGM come with your (free) FoEC membership. If you are not yet a formal member see the website for details on how to sign up online. 
The 2019 calendar is now complete and can be referenced from our website. I'm not sure if I mentioned that we were successful with our latest Melbourne Water Community Grant so have a full calendar of events in 2019 and some guaranteed 2020 activities too! That can only be good for the creek.
I look forward to seeing you on the creek!
