General Helper.

Since a major stroke in 2016 I am quite a bit crippled. I can get out and about that but it is all very difficult for me and I'm very clumsy and klutzy wherever I go. Everything I think of that I want or need to do is difficult for me. I often need someone who would just come and help. Again similar rate 25/hour.

Posting For Helen Burcham

HELP ME IF YOU CAN!  I've lost the stone from my engagement ring, from 20 odd years ago! So I'm asking whether anyone has any old, broken, unimportant or non-romantic jewellery pieces with a small pink ruby-like gem which might replace my stone.  We've been to a manufacturing jeweller who says he cannot source anything ruby-like. I can’t supply a picture as the jeweller has it at present.


Please give me a call if you think you can help, Helen 0419 147 742

Catchup Hosts

We are always looking for Catchup Hosts. 

For those who haven't yet been to a catchup, these are low key affairs in a member's home or venue they have arranged.  Usually its on the first Wednesday of the month from 10am-noon, but this is flexible if the host prefers a different day and time.  Members bring along goods to trade and there's time to sit and chat (unlike markets which are often rather busy and noisy).  All the host needs to provide is somewhere to sit and put the kettle on for a cuppa.  Members bring a plate of something to share for morning tea.  Hosts sometimes choose to have a shared lunch or offer to cater lunch for a small unit charge - its all flexible.

Its a great way to meet and get to know fellow members.  Quite often this leads to trading which you hadn't even thought about. 

Do let us know if you'd like to put your hand up.

Collecting berries of Malabar spinach

Take part in a great research project for a new food. I am aiming to collect as many dried Malabar spinach berries as possible this autumn. This is for a Polish chemist in Krakow who is analysing the betacyanins in the purple berries to assess their nutritional value - they may be a new super food. If you are growing Malabar spinach all that is needed is for you to pick the berries when they are purple and dry them in the sun or in a dehydrator. You can either give them to me at the OPM or post them to me at 42 Essex Street Goodwood 5034. I am happy to pay units for this.
