Shavings for composting toilet

I'd like wood shavings, please.  It's to help break down humanure in my composting toilet compost pile, which will later be used under fruit trees, etc.  So the shavings need to be free of toxic chemicals (no shavings from treated pine, for example).  I find wood shavings work better than paper pellets, or sawdust.

Transport to medical appointment

Would there be anyone able to drive me from Zeehan to Launceston, and back, on Monday 4th February?  My appointment at Launceston Hospital is at 230pm for about an hour.  Thanks for any responses. 

I would prefer to pay through CENTs than through the Community Transport Services of Tasmania, as it is quite expensive. 

Thanks again for all responses.

My 10 year old daughter has her own violin and was receiving two lessons per week through her primary school, but since moving schools she no longer has access to a violin teacher and is pining away!

I am an art teacher (also musical, and learning cello) with some CENTS to spend. We are looking for someone who would provide violin lessons for CENTS, or who would be willing to swap some violin lessons for some art lessons, in the Burnie area.

Please help me to get my daughter playing her violin again, the instrument is feeling sad and neglected under my daughter's bed.

Builder or handyperson

Builder or handyperson required to help me & hubby build a new toilet outside our existing bathroom. Weatherboard house. Anyone with basic building knowledge; we are prepared to do most of the labour but just need someone who can guide and reassure us that we're doing it right.

We will hire a licensed plumber to actually fit the new toilet, but any knowledge of plumbing would clearly be a bonus.

If you have a campervan that sits and does nothing for most of the year, perhaps you would consider hiring it to me for CENTs for a few weeks? I would prefer a reasonably small one, and only have a regular licence so definitely nothing that requires more than that. Old is fine as I'm not looking to pay anything near commercial rates (or I would just hire one commercially.) All CENTs or 50/50 Ç/$ or anything in between would be acceptable and of course I would pay for all fuel and maintenance whilst away (but not for major things that are due anyway!)

The time frame and period is negotiable, but probably during Autumn-Winter 2019. My plan is to drive to Perth (WA) to see my (grown up) children, and hopefully take a little of the "stuff" that they have stored at my house :)

However I might also consider short trips within Tasmania at anytime.
