Snake warning reminder

Just a little reminder to be vigilant. A red belly black snake was seen hiding between the leaves of the strawberry patch by Matt on October 11 and in the shed by Denise on December 6. Please follow Mark’s instructions to stay safe:

  • Please  be alert to  any possible snake activity.
  • All members are to be careful when picking up anything where a snake might be lying underneath it.
  • Don’t pick up anything , like a stick, or step on a stick, without first having a look at it.
  • Make some noise when approaching  possible snake sleeping areas,  especially the compost bins.
  • When entering the shed ,  bang on the door before opening it.  Noise will scare the snake away.
