Newsletter - 23rd September 2023

Happy weekend to you 🙂

A reminder up front that our AGM will be held on Tuesday this coming week! We hope you will come along for a social evening as well as the AGM. No one will be roped into any jobs, we promise!! More details later in the newsletter.

Orders Permanently Open

A reminder that the following orders are always open and available for purchase:

  • Mango Fundraiser - this will be permanently open until mid to late October. More information can be found in the 2nd September Newsletter.

  • Cheeky Monkey - Heat bags made from 100% cotton fabric and thread, with removable, washable covers. They contain corn instead of wheat, making them suitable for people with wheat allergies. You can read more about them on the product pages;

  • Olive and Bee Intimate Cream - recommended by one of our members who has been using it for a couple of years. It has uses as a moisturiser and massage oil as well as a personal lubricant. It has two ingredients - olive oil and beeswax - and is Australian made and owned by a small business. We have some tester tubes coming soon. You can read more about it on the product page;

  • There are always items available in Fills. Fills are important because they let us buy items in bulk (by the carton) so we can continue to get big discounts, but items do need to keep moving through there to keep us financially viable 🙂 So if you need anything, or want to treat yourself to something (there’s always cheese!) head over and check out Fills.

Orders Currently Open

The following orders are currently open (links open each order page):

  • GF Precinct - local, handmade gluten-free breads, wraps, dinner rolls, burger buns, pizza bases, bread crumbs and cakes, using locally-milled stone ground buckwheat and organic besan (chickpea) flours. Their products are preservative-free;

  • émotions - bamboo and recycled toilet paper, tissues and paper towels, including a range made in Melbourne (remember that if you have never tried their products before, you can buy samples (individual rolls) of the four different toilet paper types they offer at any time from Fills or from the émotions shop page). émotions is a Melbourne-based social enterprise, run by women and donating 50% of profits to mental health organisations; and

  • Eggs - certified pastured, free range eggs, fresh from Thriving Foods Farm, an organic regenerative farm in Koo Wee Rup.

AGM - Annual General Meeting

We will be holding our 2023 Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 26th September at 7pm (next week) at 1 Snodgrass St, Pakenham (the Pakenham RSL). You will be able to attend in person or via Zoom, and we will once again be combining it with a Social Evening. We hope to see you in person if you are able to make it. Nibbles and a cuppa will be available in person - via Zoom you'll have to provide your own! We will be starting the Zoom session at 7.30pm to allow for some chatting beforehand.

The link for the Zoom AGM (to start at 7.30pm) is

Meeting ID: 859 1218 5912

Passcode: 165346

Many thanks to the Home Education Network for allowing us to use their Zoom account for free!

Order Collections from Pakenham

Please make sure you read the minutes from from Monday 14th August’s urgent meeting. It is important that those collecting from Pakenham are aware of the changes we have had to make. We have a permanent (for now!) collection time and place, with a HUGE thank you to Pakenham RSL for letting us use their space completely for free. If you are looking to make a monetary donation somewhere this year, please consider them, as they struggle as much as we do to pay their rent, bills, and help their members.

Pakenham collection details:

Place: Pakenham R.S.L., 1 Snodgrass Street, Pakenham

Collection times: Saturday mornings 8.45 am to 10.15 am.

You will be notified if you have an order available for collection in the current week. Please respond with a time you will be collecting so I know to pack your order into my car.

Temporary Change to Bass River Dairy Order

A reminder that the Bass River Dairy order will be open fortnightly for the foreseeable future. It will open in the same week as the other dairy and fridge/freezer goods suppliers (Blue Pumpkin and St David Dairy). It will open next Friday.

Please get in touch with any questions.

Have a lovely week and happy shopping!
