The logo and it’s symbolism

The logo and it’s symbolism

The logo the Napoleon Reef, Walang & Glanmire Residents Association was designed by local resident Christine Bailey.  It was one of a number of designs that were submitted for consideration shortly after the Association was established in 2015.  This design was selected by the committee as being most representative of our area and the Association’s mission statement.

Red/Green Bird/Leaf represents the importance of the natural environment of our area: the flora and fauna together with the inter-dependence and support infrastructures of rock, soil, water, landform and air quality

Yellow disc represents the sun and the long established culture of the Wiradjuri, the  original owners of this country

Two curved tail feathers represent over 200 years of European settlement, which principally involved farming and mining.

HABITAT – an exhibition featuring the work of local artist Katrina Daly

A delightful exhibition opened on Friday night, 8 September, at the t.arts GALLERY in Bathurst featuring the work of four artists, including local artist Katrina Daly. Katrina’s works in oils and watercolours record her “very fortunate life at Napoleon Reef, everyday items, the fruit, flowers and herbs we grow and the animals and birds we share our garden with.” She also designed a tea towel which wonderfully captures the animals that share our nights. A great gift idea!

Also on exhibition are delightful prints by Judy Thatcher, the pastel landscapes of Greg Cross and the quirky ceramics of Emily Laszuk.

The exhibition continues until Friday 22 September.

Don’t miss it!

Habitat for Biodiversity – Success

What a fantastic day!  All who attended Napoleon Reef Landcare’s first event on Sunday were treated to a wonderful program of talks and demonstrations that provided outstanding information about the birds, plants and habitats of our area and how to care for them.  The demonstration of constructing habitat hollows in dead trees or branches captivated everyone and the detailed explanation of ecological burning has been inspirational.  This was a day for community and sharing.  There were outstanding displays of beetles, bug and other intriguing aspects of our environment, plants, historical photos and the work of our talented artists Nic Mason and Katrina Daly.  There was lots of conversation, fun draws for a wide range of donated prizes as well as delicious food throughout the day.  Everyone involved in the planning and delivery the day, the guest speakers and those responsible for the various displays, those who provided the prizes and all who attended are to be congratulated on their part in making the day such an outstanding success.  We look forward to further community days in coming months.
