TREASURERS REPORT:

Monies have been paid for the purchase of the recycle bins and liners for the waste management scheme at Taro, set up by Wayan Wardika. Members visited the village, and the local school where Wayan is passionate about educating, children and adults to collect waste, separate it and not just dump and burn!
