DONATE YOUR UNWANTED MOBILE PHONES
This year we decided to run our own charity drive. Please bring in any old, unwanted mobiles you’ve got, and they will be recycled.
By recycling your unwanted mobile/s, you will:
- ensure that reusable resources don’t go into landfill
- stop toxic metals from polluting Australia’s incredible wild places
- support a 44-year-old Australian not-for-profit: the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife
For every phone donated, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife will receive between $3 and $5 (depending on the phone) from the Aussie Recycling Program.
Any and all unwanted mobile phones and chargers are greatly appreciated. There is a collection box at Shire of Goomalling Adminiatration Office, 32 Quinlan Street, Goomalling.
Call for Photos
Last year the wedding photo exhibition was well received by all visitors to Slater Homestead. Local wedding digital and scanned images were printed and framed and created a great display of fashion styles and photographic techniques spanning a hundred or so years, this was of great interest locally and a great conversation topic for all who visited the Homestead during the exhibit.
We believe 'travel/holiday’ photos could also hold a similar appeal and make a great exhibition to fill in gaps when we don’t have an artist or group exhibiting.
The brief for the image is that it would be somewhere recognisable or locals are identifiable and/or an outstanding photo. High resolution images can be sent to email@example.com or bring your photo into the office and one of the staff will scan it and give it back to you. A little information about the image would also be appreciated - where it is taken, year and permission and name of anyone in the pic.
Goomalling is a great destination for a weekend escape or a stopover on your way to or from Perth. For all tourism related info, including maps, accommodation, things to see and do, places to eat and drink, please visit www.visitgoomalling.com.au.
