The volunteers at Nangawooka Flora Reserve recently celebrated the completion of a new shed, which has been the result of many hours of hard work.

After fundraising for several years through their Spring and Autumn Open Days, enough money was in the kitty and the group began construction of the facility earlier this year.

Stratco Goolwa helped with a discount on the purchase price, and the City of Victor Harbor contributed by levelling the site, providing the base, sand and pavers and paying for the construction of the shed.

After the initial build was complete, volunteers set to work and paved the floor, landscaped the surrounds and installed a new rain water tank donated by Bunnings Victor Harbor.

A bookcase was purchased to store a library of reference books donated by Rhonda Overall from her late husband Don's collection (Don was involved in the commencement and ongoing running of Nangawooka for many years).

Other volunteers donated shelves and a workbench to complete additions to the shed. A group spokesperson said "all volunteers are very pleased with their new, convenient work space and feel it will make working in the reserve much easier".

After cutting the ribbon and giving a short speech of thanks, President Bruce Williams declared the shed open and a celebratory BBQ was then held.
