Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

Clean Up Australia


The actual Clean Up Australia national cleaning day lands on what ever the 1st Sunday of March each year is.

Traditionally the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guides have concentrated their efforts either around the Glendonald Park [the playground and BBQ area] or the Hazelwood South Hall.

Over the years it was found that the youngest Guides got easily bored with the whole thing after about one half hour.  The older Guides got distracted after about one to one and a half hours.  So now there is a flip side to the service activity.

Coinsiding with the day is a Teddy Bears Picnic and Activities in the Park (about one hour worth).  Usually the Teddy Bears picnic starts at just after morning tea time.  And the Activities begin about three quarters of an hour later.  This way the youngest ones can go back to cleaning up the Park or just progressively make their way over to the Activities in the Park.

Needless to say to have these activities going on there needs to be Adult volunteers.  Please feel free to speak to the District Leader and ask for the necessary plans, paperwork and other District Team Members participation schedules.

Catching up on all these activities might be easier when you are invited to ‘meet’ with others with the District Facebook group.
