The Friends of H.V. McKay Memorial Gardens group (the Friends) was formed in 2007. We are interested in the restoration and maintenance of the historic H.V. McKay Memorial Gardens in Sunshine, Victoria, Australia. Our activities vary from researching the history of the gardens, historical walking tours, community festivals, planting and weeding days, to making submissions to the local council.
We meet every two months on the fourth Tuesday of that month. Meetings are held at the Church Hall, Sunshine Presbyterian Church, Anderson Road at 7.00pm. Dates for 2021 are 18 May; 20 July; 21 September; 16 November (AGM).
Anyone person interested in gardens can join the Friends. We also have community events from time to time. These include our annual festival and planting and weeding days. For information about these events check our facebook page.
Financial membership of the Friends group provides opportunities to participate in making decisions about the future shape of the gardens and helps us continue our work . Joining is as simple as paying subscription fees and attending a meeting. Full membership of the Friends is $10.00 per year, due each September.
