There’s a red tree at the back of the Amphitheatre. It’s a dead gum tree. A few years ago Peelie decided to paint it red. That ended up being a pinky kind of red. A few branches have been taken off lately by the arborist to ensure it is safe.
For some reason or other, in about 2008 someone decided to have a get-together for all the red-haired people on site. I’m not sure how they spread the word – it was nothing to do with us – but it gathered momentum and quite a few people turned up. It was known as the ‘Ranga Meet’. It’s happened each year since, at 8pm on Saturday night. Apparently at the 2010 Meredith there was even debate about how ‘red’ one had to be to be ‘red’. Anyway. There you go.
