BCA General Meeting
16 September 7:30pm - a Zoom catch up

The Committee felt a Zoom meeting would be an informal opportunity for members to catch up on what the BCA has been doing during Covid-19 restrictions.

It will be a short meeting with 30 minutes for an update and 15 minutes for any questions of the Committee. If you have any questions it would help if they can be emailed in advance.

It is a BYO Event!
Extra Truck Movements

Many have noticed a higher volume of large trucks with dog trailers going through the village in recent days.

Bundanoon Quarry has a backlog of orders and contractors are being used to catchup. Greasons Road also has significant building works with earthworks. The trucks for this use the Village then Quarry Road for access.

Troy from Bundanoon Quarry is very aware of the impact on the village and he reminds his contractors to manage both noise and speed.

Bundanoon Writer's "Festival"

We asked some of our Bundanoon Writers for short pieces for your stay-at-home reading pleasure. Below are three:

A Japanese lesson - Francesa Beddie
Karoshi is a Japanese term for death by overwork, of such concern in the 1980s that the authorities sanctioned recreational activities, including shinrin-yoku, or forest bathing, to entice people out of their workplaces.
Another double-barrel Japanese word is arukisumaho, aruki (to walk) and sumātofon (smartphone). It describes slow-shuffling pedestrians glued to their screens. In June 2020 Yamato City banned using smartphones while walking.
In lockdown that’s not possible here but forest bathing is. No need to wear swimmers, just don your walking shoes and go for a wander. When you forest bathe, don’t power walk but do breathe deep and observe your surroundings. And put your phone on silent: not getting the update on COVID numbers can also be refreshing.

The Joy of the Journey - Peter Rodgers
My heart’s palpitating, the big day’s almost here! No crawling out of bed at the crack of midday tomorrow, so I’d better set the alarm. I’ve checked the car already: tyres a bit worn but the pressure’s good; oil and water fine; nearly half a tank of fuel so should be okay.
Now for the really hard part: should it be Bunnings, then Dan Murphy, then Aldi, or the other way round? Alphabetically perhaps? What about an acronym: BAD; DAB; BAM? Or add another destination, Office Works maybe? DOAB?
That’s what I’ve always liked about travel – the mental challenge! 

Good things about lockdown ….
Re-discovering quietness
Finding new ways of connecting with friends
Giving and receiving neighbourly offerings of cumquats, eggs, plums, honey,
quince … then creating and sharing delicious dishes
Collaborating with my daughter to write a book, and how she inspired the idea
for my current work-in-progress, The Girl Who Fell From The Sky
and …
Returning from Noises Off rehearsal at the Soldiers Memorial Hall on a cold
winter’s evening to a chicken roasting in the oven, a log fire blazing, a glass of
wine … and my partner going down one knee.
I said, “Yes’, of course!
