CFA family fun day

Here’s a great chance to enjoy some quality family time with the kids whilst supporting our local volunteer fire brigade.

The first CFA fun day was held in 2010 and this year the event promises to be bigger than ever.

Not surprisingly, Captain Koala will be visiting Diggers Rest that day and it’s anticipated that he will be spending some time at the event.

Some of the planned festivities will include, Giant Jenga, Face Painting, Jumping Castle and fire related activities.

Delicious Egg & Bacon sandwiches will be available for purchase together with a Sausage Sizzle ready to extinguish those hunger pains.

Don’t let the kids miss out on the Easter Egg Hunt which is scheduled to start at 1:45pm.

Completed forms can be dropped into the letterbox at the fire station, or simply brought along on the day.

Winning entries will be announced at 1:30pm and winners will need to be on hand to collect their prizes.

Everything kicks off at 9:30am through to 3:30pm at the Diggers Rest Primary School, Plumpton Road Diggers Rest.

SHOPportunity knocks

The vacant land located at 32 Old Calder Highway Diggers Rest has recently been sold and the purchaser intends to develop the land and maximise its full potential.

The area is situated on the eastern side of the Old Calder Highway, approximately 140 metres north of the railway crossing.

In May 2009, the land was rezoned from residential to mixed use.

It’s understood that a full-line supermarket is proposed to be built in the developing Bloomdale Estate.

However, this site offers some exceptional opportunities for Diggers Rest especially given its within close proximity to the railway station.

Some of the possible options for the land could include, a supermarket, speciality retail shops, food services, speciality medical facilities, childcare facilities and residential development.

Development of this site should help to deliver much needed retail and community services to the township.

The mixed use nature of the land may help to incorporate some “small office – home office” style urban dwellings, which could attract some localised employment opportunities for residents.

Hopefully, maximising the potential of the mixed use will contribute toward the overall economic sustainability of the township.

The establishment of Houdini’s Café e Cucina is testament to the ability to attract new business from beyond the 3427 postcode.
