After weekend working bee's on the farm the beds are almost ready to be installed as part of the 7 day make over.

As I wake up this morning and reflect on yesterdays events, I can't help but wonder how fantastic the 7 day make over will be.

We have had strong support from great people working at EPSD directorate. We have strong support from Shane Rattenbury MLA and now have Mick Gentleman MLA and the Cheif Minister Andrew Barr MLA getting involved. ABC radio Canberra are now behind us as are Actsmart - Canberra

This project was designed to bring together government, businesses and community and it's doing just that !

If you want to be part of the Dicksonian movement please go to mydickson.com.au and click on the friends of Dickson to sign up.

Stage 2 is coming early next year !
