BBQ for gar­den

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

NAU­TILUS St will be the venue for a good old-fash­ioned com­mu­nity bar­be­cue on Sun­day.

The bar­be­cue will cel­e­brate the com­mu­nity spirit of vol­un­teers and res­i­dents who have sup­ported the gar­den with a fundraiser for the Moss­man and Dis­trict Gym­nas­tics Club.

Lo­cal le­gend and the man largely re­spon­si­ble for turn­ing Nau­tilus St into the gar­den oasis it is to­day, James Wat­son, is throw­ing out the wel­come mat for the fam­ily get­to­gether.

‘‘Come and en­joy the com- pany of friends, meet new peo­ple and en­joy our beau­ti­ful gar­dens,’’ he said.

‘‘The money raised from the sale of food and drink will go to the gym­nas­tics club and help them to pur­chase new equip­ment.

‘‘I think it a great way to give them some recog­ni­tion for all their ef­forts and what they have done.

‘‘It is also the two-year an­niver­sary of the Nau­tilus St gar­den of­fi­cially open­ing so that is even more rea­son to cel­e­brate.’’

Mr Wat­son is also still seek­ing a bar­be­cue or two for the af­ter­noon to cook up the de­li­cious steak sand­wiches and sausages and any­one who may want to help him cook up a storm.

There are some ta­bles and chairs around the area but peo­ple are rec­om­mended to bring their own seats or a blan­kets to sit on the grass.

The com­mu­nity bar­be­cue will be held from 4-6pm on Sun­day. Phone James on 0438 148 691 if you can of­fer any as­sis­tance.
