Creating a grand entrance!

The Hazelwood South Hall has a new look outside front entrance way.  While we wait with baited breath for the Latrobe City Council to spend millions on creating a side car entrance for members of the Churchill Soccer club which will take away a lot of parking and some of the Hazelwood South Reserve our own Hall entrance really began to look shabby. like the District needing revitalization this entrance desperately required upgrading.

Earlier when a District SWOT was compiled this front entrance, and that fact that the bricks were still out the back were considered both a weakness and a threat. The better bricks have been gradually leaving the area out the back. Surely even if we could not use these bricks for what the District Team originally envisioned there must have been something we could do with them around the Hazelwood South Hall!

When a new member of the District Team wanted to use the Hall it was suggested that something be done with the front entrance. What was envisioned had to to be place on a back burner. The team was stuck while other thing to over.  A light bulb flash of inspiration occurred.

There was an opportunity to use the bricks as well as the tan bark that had been donated earlier in the year.  Some members of the District team were available to load up wheel barrows with bricks, while one member chipped away at the mortar still on most of the bricks. Mean while others dug up and loaded the wheelbarrows with the tan bark.

Years ago a rose bush was planted by the Hazelwood Junior Guide  Unit in memory of Lady B-P. This rose bush has grown well and gets ‘trimmed’ vigoursly right back every few years.  Having just one large rose bush gives the entrance a lopsided feel. This rose bush, which  had previously been trimmed back a few weeks ago, got another trim.  Now we able to get in and more easily place the tan bark at the back of the rose as well.

Thanks to another member who went shopping in a nursery there are now two little plants growing there too.

That’s when the grand idea for a ‘brickery’ came up.  We’ll we don’t have rocks but there are a lot of old chipped bricks and mortar, good bricks still from the old toilet block and lots more wheel barrows of tan bark.  most of us have the plants at home for propagation.  Well developing  the ‘brickery’ is another story…
