TAS Country : April 7th 2011
Friday, April 8, 2011 Tasmanian Country 7 News ANGER: Janice McConnon and Rick Birch and other Levendale residents outside what was once St Chad's Anglican Church. Cry from a country churchyard JENNIFER CRAWLEY Continued Page 10 THE air is crystal clear in the tiny South-East community of Levendale. And the intention of the people is clear --- St Chad's belongs to them. The people of Levendale mounted a campaign two years ago to save their school, and won. Now they have another battle on their hands --- saving their church --- built 104 years ago. The Anglican Church of Australia has decided the poor attendance levels have warranted the closure and sale of St Chad's. The Levendale community has mo- bilised an intensive campaign to prevent the sale and wants the church handed back to them. Placards on the country road next to the church say ''Not For sale All Offers Refused''. Local resident Rick Birch said the Anglican Church has refused to meet with Levendale's Save our Church committee. ''We've asked for meetings, but everything seems to be via electronic mail,'' Mr Birch said. ''They say they have consulted with the Anglican community, but not with us, the people who own the church.'' *For Terms & Conditions refer to www.onesteelcyclone.com.au Registered trademark of OneSteel Wire Pty Limited ABN 59 000 010 873.

Carbon and farm forestry KAROLLIN MacGREGOR FARMERS wanting to find out more about using farm forestry for carbon capture can attend field days run by Private Forests Tasmania on April 19 and 20. The field days will focus on the findings of the recent Carbon Plan- tations project, which includes on-farm greenhouse gas emissions, plantation carbon capture and storage issues, as well as wood production for different prices of carbon and timber. Results from the Carbon Storage and Trading Survey will be released at the field days and the Carbon Plantation Plantation Tool Kit -- designed specifi- cally for Tasmanian farmers -- will be launched. Farm forestry case studies will be presented along with information from an on-farm greenhouse gas emissions audit report. Most of the information at each field day will be the same, except for the landowner case studies specific to each property where the field day is held. The first will be on April 19 from 8.45am to noon at Richard Johnston's property Oakleigh near Carrick. And on the same day, the second one will be from 1.30pm to 4.45pm at Rob and Kathy Henry's property Woodrising near Cressy. On April 20 the morning field day will start at 8.45am at Alan and Rosie Davenport's Telita dairy at Telita and the 1.30pm session will be at Lawrence Archer's property East Effingham, near Beechford. For more information and to RSVP contact Diana Hall at diana.hall @privateforests.tas.gov.au or 6336 5300. Get location maps from www.privateforests. tas.gov.au.
