A call-out to members of any Friends group... We need help with transport!! Do you like to drive? Want to explore some new spectacular scenery?
Have you ever had an interest in becoming a member of the Friends of the Ikara-Flinders Ranges, but couldn't justify the cost of driving there, or don't have a vehicle you felt was suitable… or at all? Or maybe you'd just like to experience how a different Friends group operates, or take in some of our magnificent Flinders scenery.
Athol Jackson and Anthea & Carl Hudson have been active Friends of the Ikara-Flinders Ranges members since the group began in 1995.
Athol (our driver) is soon going to be unable to drive due to medical issues, which means we will have a problem getting to working bees in the Park. Anthea and Carl will be attempting to get their drivers licenses, but this will take time.
We are wondering if there are any Friends group members who would be interested in driving Athol's very comfortable, easy to drive vehicle (fuel cost covered) to transport us up to the Flinders Ranges and drive around to the various places in the Park where work is taking place.
A willingness to tow a camper trailer would also be a great advantage! Also, due to allergies, you would need to be a non-smoker.
You would also need to be 25+ (I think) due to vehicle insurance purposes.
Fuel cost would naturally be covered.
Private room accommodation is provided free in the comfortable Oraparinna Shearer's Quarters, with access to a fully equipped kitchen, male and female
hot showers and flush toilets, heating (wonderful huge slow combustion heater, plus reverse cycle) and cooling, TV. You would need to be willing to
help out at the working bee, to use one of these rooms, as they are reserved for volunteer workers, but the work is enjoyable and the company is great.
We'd even be willing to provide your meals, but you may prefer to bring your own food, as we are vegan.
We would be very grateful for any help or suggestions in this matter, as it saddens us greatly to think of not being a part of our wonderful working bees!
Please email Anthea firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to discuss this further, or to make an offer of help.
