Thank you to Clare Gilbert Valleys Council

The Auburn community wishes to thank the Clare Gilbert Valleys Council for the placing of two ‘doggie bag’ dispensers in our local area. One has been installed in Centenary Park on the exterior wall of the Park Shelter, and another has been installed on the Riesling Trail at its entrance to Auburn. These bags are a great public asset, so when you are walking your dog, please use these bags to maintain the safety and comfort of fellow walkers/bike riders.

Auburn Traders and the Planter Pot Mosaics.

The Auburn Traders were successful in October 2017, receiving a Community Asset Grant of $3,000, from the CGVC. these funds will be used to complete the Mosaic project including a plaque for each artwork and a brochure to explain how the artwork represents Auburn.

In the near future there will be a working bee to finish the last 6 mosaic artworks, as well as a bbq to thank all volunteers who will have worked on this project.

Some of the plants have not survived this summer, and these willbe replaced by Auburn Traders.
