With the return of the Bannister Hall to community ownership, Heffernan’s Creek Landcare’s attention has shifted to assisting in its renovation so that it is now a pleasant place for meetings, information sessions, social gatherings –  in fact, for anything which brings our little community together! To that end, projects such as developing a war memorial, collecting photographs and artefacts displaying  life in Bannister over the years , film  and Trivia nights have seen the light of day (or night!!) along with the hosting of a pastures workshop, which included the involvement of Kathryn Pengilly, Upper Lachlan Shire Weeds officer, Paul Brown and Annelies McGaw from Local Land Services.  Each speaker being very effective;  Paul displayed some new weeds to be on the lookout for like Coolatai Grass and Chilean Needle Grass. Kathryn discussed the importance of property planning for both pasture and weed management. Annelies introduced the new Biosecurity Legislation. We had a good attendance and from the questions and interest shown in the discussions during a walkabout it was a very worthwhile day.
