It was a rare case of ‘do fence me in’ at the New Horizons Club on Saturday as a team of 20 Launceston and Central Launceston Rotarians set about replacing 50 metres of fencing. 

Using Timberlink donated palings, the team worked from 9am to demolish the old fence, erect a new one, and help out with pruning and landscaping.

Launceston Rotary Club president Geoff Brayford said his team was only too happy to help out. 

“They need community support and we love to help the community do what they need to do, so we got together and we’re all helping each other out,” Mr Brayford said.

“Plus they cooked us a lovely lunch so it was well worth it.”

Mr Brayford said his team would be looking to collaborate further with New Horizons moving forward.

“They have a number of projects they’ve identified and we’re going to try and have a firm longer term relationship with New Horizons because they provide a good service and they need help.”
