The French Island Cricket Club, located on Tankerton Rd, was established more than 100 years ago and has been associated with the Mornington Peninsular Cricket Association since its inception in the mid-1960s. The island usually fields two teams each week of the season. The season usually begins on the first Saturday in October and finishes on the last weekend of March.

New members, supporters and volunteers are always welcome. It is a great place to meet socially.

For more information, contact Dianne Spark on 5980 1208.

For information regarding the French Island CFA, see Emergency Services. Volunteers for this essential French Island service are always welcome.

French Island Landcare is committed to improving properties on the island by tackling land protection problems such as the water quality in dams and creeks, salinity, erosion, weed invasions and pest animals. The group is also interested in more sustainable land management, including protection of remnant vegetation, re-vegetation with plants native to French Island and improvement of pasture management.

French Island Landcare is on hand to provide advice about locally indigenous plants, which are best suited to French Island's environment and therefore grow well. The group is happy to provide plant lists, books and other resources to help plan revegetation projects large and small. They will happily visit properties to provide specific advice. French Island Landcare has its own nursery on the island.

French Island Landcare's greatest strength is its ability to tap into State and Commonwealth grants as well as other community/environmental support schemes. It can secure funding for fencing subsidies, tubestock, stakes and guards and herbicide for members. Being a part of the Bass Coast Landcare Network allows French Island LandCare to access some regional funding for common issues such as salinity.

French Island Landcare has a small committee of volunteers who coordinate activities and provide information to members. All members are encouraged to participate in Landcare activities which include seed collecting, helping out at the Landcare nursery, community planting days, wildflower wanders and other social events.

Field days and workshops on topics of interest are also an important part of the group's annual activities.
