Tennyson Dunes Workdays in May

This is a reminder that our next Tennyson Dunes Group workday will be Thursday 6th May, 10am-12pm, at the Valerie Wales Community Coastal Nursery on Atkin St, Henley Beach, not at the dunes as previously announced.  This will be followed by another on Sunday 16th May, 10am-12pm, at the northern car park of the Wara Wayingga Tennyson Dunes Conservation Reserve, located here.

On the Thursday, we will continue our propagation efforts, but on the Sunday we have a different event planned.  We'll be constructing the northern Native Bee BnB so lots of fun for the whole family.

Remember to bring sun protection, drinking water, enclosed shoes, gardening gloves and a dust mask if you come to the nursery workday.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Tennyson Dunes Group General Meeting

Following on from our very successful AGM earlier this year, with special guest Katja Hoogendorn talking about native bees, we will hold another General Meeting on Saturday 8th May, 2-3:30pm, at the Bower Cottages Community Centre, 200 Bower Rd Semaphore Park, located here.

Parking can be accessed via Bartley Tce and Kingfisher Dr.

There'll be another amazing guest speaker and you'll also hear from our committee about several projects we've been involved in.

Be sure to save the date.

Grange Mobile Phone Tower

SOS Grange, who share some common members with us, have asked us to let you all know about their campaign regarding a mobile phone tower:

On the 1st Dec 2020 a limited number of residents received a letter from Council and a flyer from Telstra.
This was to inform us that Telstra intends to build a 5G tower at the Grange Bowls Club (with their consent!).
This tower will be 85m from a kindergarten, 58m from a church, its netball and tennis courts and social hub that is used most days of the week.
It is 4m from my back fence, and 3.1m from others.
Initially we petitioned Council and put in 370 Statements of Representation to be considered.
The assessment panel dates have been put back, at request by Telstra, until ?June/July.
As we don’t want the tower built next to our backyards, we don’t expect others to want the same.
Hence we have expanded our horizons.
We have put together a petition to the House of Assembly, which Stephen Mullighan has kindly offered to table.
The petition is asking that there is a pause to the rollout of 5G, throughout residential areas of South Australia, until the below bodies complete their studies into electromagnetic emissions in 2024 and publish them:
World Health Organisation (WHO)
International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP)
International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC)
Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA)
 
The petition has hyperlinks to back up all statements.
 
We have put this petition online at Change.org  http://chng.it/KBjND7WcBP
We were wondering if you could share this link with your members.
