Hot Spots Cafe

HotSpots Café opens on 21 May

Starting on Sunday, 21 May, RFS is starting a small, regular coffee stop in conjunction with WildCare and LandCare.
We are hoping Carwoola residents who want a nice cuppa will drop in, chat with your neighbours and have a chat with us on fire & land management issues. Over time we’d like to build this into an active program of engagement with landholders to cooperate in managing our environment better.

Lost Cat Please Help

Would residents of Hoskinstown and Carwoola regions, please look out for a cat that was lost on 11 September 2016 during a move into town from Rossi near the Tallaganda National Park.

She is grey with white paws and white patches on her neck, chest and between her back legs. She is not desexed nor microchipped. She has a collar which she may have lost. We have been looking but with no luck so far. There is still someone living at the home leaving food out and also looking.
