Help Needed : Working Bee

Posted: December 2, 2010 in Announcements, Events

We urgently need volunteers to help the artists and the Renew Townsville team to clean, scrub, strip, rip, dump and turf rubbish and old signage and advertising collateral from the windows and shopfronts along our passage of the Flinders Street Mall.

This will be happening from 9am on Sunday 12th December.  We will be meeting outside the old Rivers store.

If you would like to participate in this noble enterprise we need you to come on down next Sunday and bring along the following :

*  A big smile
*  Gloves
*  Closed footwear

We also desperately need window cleaning equipment including blades and scrapers to remove paint and stickers.  Of course anything else you think might be helpful, such as your favourite cordless tools, cleaning products, brooms, mops , extension cords, and vacuums.

If you know a tradie or someone who can swing a hammer or flick a paint brush please bribe them on our behalf.  The more the merrier.

So if you have a spare few hours next Sunday morning please come along, we will be cooking up a sausage sizzle and will provide cold water to keep you fed and lubricated.

Please pop over to our contacts page if you would like to talk to Donna or Mitch about what’s needed and how you can help.

“Closing of our first round of submissions is approaching fast, projects can be film and animation studios, fashion designers, jewelers, eco businesses, art & craft galleries, community groups… If you have an idea that you need to work up, or want to find others to share a space with, then come along to our next workshop this Monday 21st June at 5:30pm at Umbrella Studio”
