Friends of Cleland National Park
Come work with us in beautiful Cleland Conservation Park (not the Wildlife Park) We are currently doing weed removal in Waterfall Gully, close to the Mt Lofty Track. Some weeds are 3 times as tall as a person, others are tiny and easily removed. Plenty of challenge, and afterwards excellent coffee at the Waterfall Gully kiosk.
The Friends of Cleland National Park now travel across 9 different locations on and around the length of Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty Trails including our new favourite Steub Trail. The group's President is Gray Rowe, secretary Carole Pinnock. On many of our visits, particularly in Waterfall Gully, we have sighted the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoot. This beautiful little animal is now on our logo. Cleland National Park includes high quality heath and Mount Lofty Swamp vegetation creating habitat for a diverse range of flora and fauna including the endangered Southern Brown Bandicoot. Since 2020, we started monitoring our beloved bandicoots with an infrared camera to help us understand more about these little native creatures. Join us to give back to this beautiful park and do something for our endangered wildlife. Further is available from our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/FriendsofClelandNationalPark and we welcome your enquiries.

Summit Valley Community Club
Summit Valley Community Club (Gymnastics Club) requires a new Treasurer. This is a volunteer position and is not a big commitment. We are looking for someone with about an hour a week to spare. You will need basic computer literacy and very basic bookkeeping skills. We will need you to join the committee and have a working with children clearance (or be happy to get one).
There are about 25 local families in the club who need invoicing once per term. Sports vouchers entered online for SA Rec and Sport, about 20 per term and a few cheques each term. We are also happy to set up online banking if you prefer. Most jobs can be done from the comfort of your own home, but occasional Monday night visits to the club (Ashton Hall) would be nice.
We use Quick Books and online access provided along with full training and handover. Our Club is in a very good financial position and all other executive positions were filled at our recent AGM.
If you can help please call Alice on 0418 893 996, or send an e-mail to Alex Fry firstname.lastname@example.org or catch up at the club on Monday night.
Torrens Valley Community Kindergym
We are a small community kindergym run by a parent committee and we are based in the Gumeracha Town Hall. Our classes are on Monday mornings during term time with an all-ages class from 9:30-10:30am and an under 2-year class from 11-11:45am.
Ideally, we would love a volunteer to assist from 9am-12pm (time negotiable) to support our leader with any last minute set up and then to sit in the foyer and welcome, check in members on our excel spreadsheet, process square device EFTPOS and then attend the sessions to support the leader and families. We require a working with children police check (free for volunteers). This role would be great for a retiree, student or anyone interested in supporting the local community. We will provide full support and training to make the person comfortable in the role.
