The Melbourne City Council, together with their Heritage advisors have declared that the cobblestones of Federation Square have significant heritage value! As such they have told Fight Parkinson's (previously known as Parkinson's Victoria) that a Barbecue is not allowed. Fight Parkinson's, however, would very much like us to run a stall selling fruit bars, sandwiches, drinks, etc. Our help would only be needed from 8.30am to 1.00pm and only three volunteers would be required for each shift. I will therefore arrange to have the roster adjusted and those who have already signed up will need to re-enter their names as the various timeslots will have changed.
This is such a shame as the BBQ has always been a most enjoyable event.
No longer a BBQ but still a stall with refreshments
