The photo left shows how the waterways around the estate have been cleared of overgrown weeds and plants to allow storm water to get away more easily. With the storm season approaching, this maintenance work is most welcome. Bellvista and Bells Reach remain well above the “once in a 100 years’ flood line, unlike many other areas here on the Sunshine Coast.
Despite being one man down (the team leader is enjoying his annual leave) the remaining two workers of the SCRC Bellvista Gardening Maintenance Team are hard at it keeping the estate looking its best.
If you spot a gardening or parks issue around the estate which may require attention, find the team where ever they may be working and pass on any information.
One of the regular bike riders around the estate noticed an area of concern at the southern end of Bimberri Ct. As the photo below left shows, a shrub required pruning to allow walkers, bike riders and skate boarders a clearer outlook on a ‘blind’ corner. A quick snap on his camera, and a resultant catching up with the Council Team ensured the dangerous are was pruned back (below right) a day or later.
Despite now being cleared, spots such as this one still require the care and attention of all to ensure everyone remains safe and sound.
So if you spot a parks/gardening issue which requires attention, just let the gardening boys know and if possible they will attend to it for you.
