Forest activist group No Electricity From Forests is holding a 'fun raiser' at the Kendall Community hall on Saturday, November, 9.

Local performers Kelly Gould, Rose Wilson and Lauren Edwards will entertain guests with their original and cover melodies.

All three women feel strongly about the dramatic acceleration of logging in our State forests, at a time when scientists are urging countries to preserve native forests to combat climate change.

"I'm looking forward to sharing a set of songs, all for the cause of helping No Electricity from Forests continue to advocate for our forests. Increasing logging, all to turn into pellets to ship overseas for power generation, doesn't make environmental or economic sense," Ms Wilson said.

"NEFF will update guests on the latest developments in our native forests, and suggest ways that people can help. Community action is the perfect antidote for feeling powerless, and NEFF thinks having fun together is a good way to start."

Savoury platters, luscious cakes, coffee and tea will be available for purchase. Guests can bring their own food if desired, and alcohol is permitted. There will be raffles and a quiz, and the opportunity to buy NEFF merchandise.

Entry is $10, with kids under 14 free. To book a table for you and your friends, email Jane at avocadofool@hotmail.com. The event will run from 6 - 9.30pm.
