Executed to perfection
Hi Mick (Mick Walker WES Civil Manager) I am very impressed with the way you and your crew carried out the work along Jacksons creek at Salesian College Sunbury. You and your crew were very mindful at all times of the school environment and the need for care on roads and tracks because of the students and other workers. The job has been done to a very high standard and the cleanup and burning was exceptional. Thankyou for the courteous and caring way that you and your crew treated all the people you came in contact with, you caused so disruption to the other works that were happening at the school at the time, and were always mindful of the needs for the farm staff and the stock. Thankyou once again. Regards Chris Ryan

Dear Rodney, We would like to thank you and your team for doing a fantastic job in removing weeds and debris that constituted a fire hazard from our property and restoring the ground surface to a condition ready for planting. The clean-up works were done efficiently and effectively and the associated landscaping was done with flair, blending harmoniously with the natural landforms of the river gorge where our property is situated. We were impressed with your team's ability to deal with difficult site access and to sensitively undertake extensive weed and debris removal works whilst preserving the plants that we wanted to keep including fruit trees and regenerating indigenous saplings. We would highly recommend your team to others requiring similar works. Yours sincerely, Dr Sandra Brizga

To the WES Crew Roberta & I would like to pass-on our thanks for the works done this year. Also, we were again very happy with the work done by Phil Menzies (Thiess) and the WES work crew of Mick, Grant and Liam (Barney) We have already burnt the three piles of timber (which was the trees that I poisoned last year). The other 4 piles are still green so we leave them until mid August. Overall, with the new trees from last 3 years Stream Frontage Projects the creek is looking very different. Thanks again for the support from Melbourne Water and yourself.
