Powering ahead

Created: Thursday, 28 April 2016

The Long Lunch Fundraiser held at the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre last weekend was an unqualified success. The 45 people in attendance rolled out the door, wishing they had worn elastic pants after enjoying a gourmet feast provided by hard-working MNC contributors.


The Maldon Neighbourhood Centre’s new project “Powering Our Community: The Solar Pergola Project” was officially launched at the Long Lunch Fundraiser. This is a crowd-funding campaign to raise $6000 for a 3kw solar panel system to power the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre.


The crowd-funding campaign is now open and receiving donations, please visit http://www.thepeoplessolar.com/projects/mnc if you would like to make a contribution.

Long Lunch launch of the Solar Pergola project

Created: Tuesday, 12 April 2016

The Maldon Neighbourhood Centre will be launching its new project “Powering Our Community: The Solar Pergola Project” on Sunday 24 April with a Long Lunch Fundraiser.

We are inviting everyone to invest in the future of the Maldon community by raising $6000 to install a 3kw solar panel system on the purpose-built pergola in the community garden. This will reduce our heating bills by $1000 every year so we can contribute even more to our community.invitationposter

Enjoy Christmas shopping for a change by steering clear of bland over-crowded malls and shopping at the Maldon Market: Hand Made, Home Grown on Sunday 13 December, 9 -2pm.

The Maldon Market has a wide range of hand crafted and artisan products from the local area which make a thoughtful gift for friends and family, including delicious jams and chutneys, hand made moisterisers and lip balms, jewellery, chocolates and more.

Strolling through the Shire Gardens and browsing the interesting and varied stalls makes shopping fun. The children can enjoy themselves at the nearby playground or have a ride on the donkey cart – specially decorated to spread Christmas cheer! Be entertained with live music and local buskers, including face painting for the children.
