Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joined Mr Dick Turner of Glenbrook Native Plant Reserve and Nursery to announce funding assistance of $1000.

The Glenbrook Native Plant Reserve is maintained by volunteers and specialises in Australian plants and plants indigenous to the Blue Mountains in particular.

This funding will be used by 5 of the volunteers to undertake first-aid training through St Johns Ambulance.

Stuart Ayres said “The Glenbrook Native Plant Reserve is a hidden gem at the gateway to the Blue Mountains and its volunteers are to be commended for their dedication to the preservation of Australian plants.”

Mr Turner welcomed the funding and said “this training will ensure that someone is always at hand to administer first aid if required to fellow volunteers and visitors to the Reserve.”

The Glenbrook Native Plant Reserve & Nursery is open from 12noon to 4pm on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays and entry is free.
