BOATSHED DEVELOPMENT IN FRONT OF BEAUMARIS CLIFF

The Society produced a brochure on the newly-established Nature Walk in the Gramatan Avenue Heathland Sanctuary and, with assistance from Sandringham Council and the Ministry for Planning and Environment, conducted a wellattended Public Inspection there for World Environment Day. Maintenance of the Gramatan Avenue Heathland Sanctuary has continued steadily.
