PLAN YOUR PLANTS “With all the Summer rain we've had, now is the best time to start preparing your garden for Autumn. "The work that is done now will guarantee optimum display in Spring,” advises landscape designer and consultant Sally Bourne. Sally completed her landscaping course at West Ryde TAFE in the early 1990s, and relocated to the Central West nine years ago from Sydney’s North Shore. Mother of Megan 5 and Laura 3 and a half, married to Barry, the family lives just outside of Gooloogong and now her daughters are older, Sally is keen to get back to the drawing board. Raised in a third generation of builders family, and with 20 years of experience in the landscape industry, Sally is practical as well as creative; understanding how gardens work with buildings and other structures. Gardens are designed with character, taking into account our local climate and your lifestyle. Known around Canowindra for her successful garden design projects, including: the Preschool; St Edwards' central court; Canowindra Public School upper area; Memorial Park; Sally has also drawn up the plans and documentation for the Sports Oval ‘Don’t be a Witness…' path. Whether it is just one garden bed, or a whole area completed from scratch, Sally can arrange everything from the comprehensive master plan showing plant selection and layout, contracting tradesmen to complete the whole job, or you can use the master plan as a guide over time. From courtyards to country estates; parks to playing fields; Sally can provide on-site personal consultations to tailor a plan to create your verdant vision. Call Sally on 0417 227 246 for more information or to arrange a meeting.

PAY NOW AND WALK RIGHT IN LATER This year Canowindra residents can pre-purchase entry to Night Markets and Balloon Glow from the Newsagency: $5 per adult; $10 per family (2 adults + kids). This will save lining up at the gates. The Canowindra Challenge Committee have made a number of changes since last year based on feedback from completed surveys. Surveys will be available again this year from the gate, an information table and handed out on the night, and also from local shops during the following week. Your ideas and suggestions are valuable to improve the balloon events year to year, so make sure you grab a questionnaire and fill it our honestly. Crowds are expected to increase from last year, so get to the Sports Ground early there will be a wide variety of stalls and plenty of action. This years fundraising recipients are the Read triplets, so bring a gold coin or two to toss into the bucket. Stay for the Python's rugby match immediately after the balloon glow and cheer them on to victory.

To the editor...
While I commend council for funding a new garden, landscaping, sculpture, etc of the area immediately in front of & around the corner of the Services Club to the tune of $37,800, WHO will maintain this area. I would have thought it was the Club's area to look after, my husband & I have to beautify & maintain our nature strip. The park across the road is lacking in maintenance with Council employees unable to keep up with the weeds, etc. Not enough time allocated for this purpose. The Garden Club have been approached to help in this area. I really believe gardens, parks, etc are COUNCIL responsibility. Morris Park in Rodd Street is also sadly in need of maintenance. Have any of the councillors walked through there in the past 6-12 months? The paths are all overgrown with grass, the only area that looks good is where the Canowindra Garden Club maintains. The lawns (with no thanks to Council, except for the mowing) are nice & green thanks to Mother Nature. This park used to be a showpiece of Canowindra & this year will be 80 years old in August. With maintenance & TLC it could once again be what the Boree Shire had in mind in 1932. I (along with many others) think our money should & could be spent on what we already have not a new garden that doesn't have any plans, as far as I understand, for maintenance. The new Fitness Path is a wonderful concept BUT who will maintain it? Yours sincerely, Mary Finn, Canowindra

A few important developments have happened since the last article in the Phoenix: specialised chairs similar to the 'Snap Dragon' chairs that were being considered can possibly be sourced locally. This option would mean the government could partly pay for them and maintain them (still leaving about $30k gap). We could be closer to our goal than we thought. The final decision as to what chair to go with for each child is yet to be made - as they all have different requirements - but one bonus of local sourcing is the reduced ongoing maintenance cost. The Reads are very much looking forward to this Saturday's Balloon Glow event in Canowindra, where a collection will be taken up on their behalf. Volunteers to assist in this collection are desperately being sought. Jemimah Read is thankful that the triplets were chosen to be recipients of this local collection, and wishes to thank the community for all the goodwill and support they have received. For more details on the chairs, fundraising or muscular dystrophy, please contact Jemimah 0458 090 967.
