Trees growing too close to powerlines can cause blackouts. Worse than that, it increases
the risk of fire and even electrocution. It can also inter fere with essential maintenance.
It’s your responsibility to make sure trees on your property are, in most cases, at least
1.5 metres away from poles and wires. But if your trees are already too close, you must
use an ActewAGL-accredited tree surgeon to trim near powerlines.

THE Weston Creek Rotary Club is aiming
to brighten the lives of seriously ill
children through its major fundraiser, the
Rotary and Camp Quality Book Fair.
The book fair is being held this weekend
and organisers are hoping to raise about
$35,000 from the tens of thousands of
items on sale.
Forty per cent of the proceeds from the
book fair will go to Camp Quality, who run
‘fun therapy’ programs for children with

national and international Rotary projects.
This is the third year Rotary has been
involved with the book fair.

event, mainly the sorting and stacking of
‘‘All the members of the Rotary Club
and their partners and friends, as well as
people from Camp Quality all have jobs to
do – we’d have over 100 people in-
volved,’’ he said.
‘‘We’ve got a plan for the layout of the
centre – it is all being done with military
Mr Dalton said while book donations
had been slow at the start of collections,
they had picked up in recent weeks.
‘‘We originally looked like we would be
about 10,000 books down on what we

‘‘However, we’ve made that up in the
last few weeks and we’ll have between
30,000 and 40,000 books available on
Friday and Saturday.
‘‘And people don’t have to come first
thing on Friday as not all the books are out
at once and we’ll be continuously restock-
ing over the weekend.
‘‘Some of the stock available near the
end of last year’s fair was magic.’’
Mr Dalton said people who came to the
book fair could expect books, CDs and
DVDs in good condition, some being
brand new, and a few vintage books which
he said were quite valuable. The majority
of books will be priced between 50 cents
