The Friends aim to be sustainable in all we do and we ask all who come to the pcnic to help us acheve this on the day. This includes minimising the the waste that is generated, reusing as much waste as possible and taking home any waste for which you are responsible. If you can avoid driving to Blakers Park, please do so.
