Draft Strategic Plan available for community review

Created: Friday, 02 November 2018

The Maldon Neighbourhood Centre's Strategic Plan for January 2019 - June 2021 is now available for review and comment by the local community.

The Maldon Neighbourhood Centre’s Committee of Management has been working diligently on the draft Strategic Plan for 2019 to 2021 based upon the community insights gathered at the strategic planning day in September.

The local community is invited to review the goals and aspirations outlined in the plan and provide comments, suggestions and feedback. The draft plan is available on the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre website: www.maldonnc.org.au or hard copies are available at the Centre.

The Annual General Meeting scheduled for Tuesday 20 November will also be an opportunity to review the plan before comments are incorporated and the plan is endorsed at the November Committee meeting planned for Tuesday 27 November.

For more information on the planning process, please call the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre on 5475 2093 or email info@maldonnc.org.au.

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.
