Healesville CoRE was thrilled to be invited to participate in Healesville Connect’s third birthday party, which took place at Queens Park on Thursday 11 January in the form of a family picnic. We set up our stand up next to the Healesville Community Emergency Group and ran two competitions – one to see who could put a range of household appliances in order of energy usage, and an online quiz on renewable energy general knowledge. At the end of the evening the winners were announced – Helen Calvert put most of the appliances in the correct order, and Susanne Duncan won the renewable energy quiz. Both winners were very happy with their prizes of a portable solar powerbank charger. It was a great opportunity for Healesville CoRE to be part of a fun community event, and we hope to join in more of these types of events during the year. Many thanks to our committee members Rod and Deb for looking after our stand, and to Healesville Connect for putting together such an enjoyable evening.
