programs by Sandhurst Club for the Marysville Golf Club, which was badly damaged in the bushfires.
The supply of recycled water to residents at Sandhurst by South East Water will enable the shrubs to be
maintained through to December in individual gardens and then transported to Marysville and Kinglake as
early Christmas gifts to be distributed with Centacare Catholic Family Services.
The Sandhurst Cup - a high speed worm race with over 20 entries will be
staged as a feature event of the day at 11.30am with earlier sprint races.
