Community Bus trial to continue

Created: Thursday, 10 May 2018

Good news! The community bus trial servicing the communities of Baringhup, Maldon and Castlemaine is continuing for another six weeks until Friday 22 June.

The trial service started in April to improve transport for older members of the community.

“Make sure you take advantage of this opportunity and book your seat on the bus today,” said Amy Atkinson, Coordinator, Maldon Neighbourhood Centre. "Just call 5475 2093 to book"

“The use of the new community bus has increased each week since we launched the service at Easter time.

“Most customers are using the service to travel from Maldon or Baringhup. Yet there is still room on the bus and we would like to encourage Castlemaine residents to use the service to get around Castlemaine,” she said.

The service operates on Tuesdays and Fridays, looping around Castlemaine between 10.15am and 1pm. It also runs between Baringhup, Maldon and Castlemaine, and links to existing PTV services.

“The bus picks up passengers from residential houses, taking people door-to-door for a gold coin donation,” said Amy.

To book a seat on the community bus service contact the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre on 5475 2093 the day before. Timetable information is available online via www.maldonnc.org.au/community-bus.

The community bus trial is delivered by Castlemaine Community House and Maldon Neighbourhood Centre in partnership with Mount Alexander Shire Council. It is funded by the Victorian Government through the Age-friendly Communities Grants Program.

Makarrata Garden Tarrangower

Created: Tuesday, 27 March 2018

We are excited that Makarrata Garden Tarrangower led by local artist Forest Keegel is starting in April and would love you to be involved in this transformative project which investigates our local biosphere with a focus on Powerful Owls and Duans (Brush-tailed Phascogales), the history of colonisation in Maldon and brings Indigenous cultural learning to the Tarrangower community so we can begin a Makarrata (truth telling and reconciliation) process.

Occasional Childcare Update

Created: Tuesday, 06 March 2018

Neighbourhood Houses Victoria has been working on behalf of Neighbourhood Houses to better understand the up-coming changes to occasional childcare funding and how we may transition to another model. 

We have some good news! Occasional childcare funding will continue until the end of December 2018 AND we are eligible to apply for the new Federal package (the Jobs for Families Child Care Package). MNC will still need to understand what transitioning will involve, but we are hopeful that we can either continue to offer a great childcare service for local families or advocate for another provider to be based in Maldon.
