February 12


Following our successful bulk purchase of solar panels in 2009 we are once again organising with Aussie Solar to offer people the opportunity to purchase a 1.5KW solar panel system from $990. Contact us by either emailing us subject line “Solar bulk purchase” or contacting Pamela Reeves on 0422 532 586. An information pack and application form will then be forwarded to you. Application forms need to be received by 16 April as prices will increase from 1 July.

CSG TV Advertisement

You may have seen recently ads by the APPEA (Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association) trying to sell the virtues of Coal Seam Gas. The information presented is highly doubtful, especially the claim that there is enough gas to provide power for a 1000 years. For the real facts, go to the Lock the Gate website, in particular the video of why Tara is locking the gate.


Getup is running a petition against CSG exploration and development. To sign it. Go to:

Ryde Gladesville Climate Change Action Group

We are a small dedicated group of core members and a larger group of supporters. Currently there are lots of exciting things happening in the climate change arena and we welcome others to join the core group. We are also looking at forming a small group of volunteers who would like to be slightly more actively involved from time to time, but who do not wish to attend regular meetings. We will contact you when we are holding events or actions that need extra hands to see if you would like to help out. Please contact Jo on 0414 375 149 or email us with subject heading – “Action Team” and preferred contact details and any areas of interest.

Next meeting:

Monday 5 March 2012 at 7.00 pm. Call Pamela on 0422 532 586 or Jo on 0414 375 149 for details.

We would like to thank all our friends & supporters for your continued support.
