Keeping your home comfortable

Created: Thursday, 10 September 2020

Keeping our homes comfortable all year round can be a challenge – managing cold winters and extreme heat in summer. As many of us know firsthand, lots of Maldon’s housing stock is old and the gorgeous heritage mining cottages we love are not great at keeping out draughts in the winter and quickly heat up in summertime.

But Maldon Neighbourhood Centre’s Climate Ready Maldon project is here to help with just that! Local volunteers will work with households to assess the thermal comfort of their homes and create an Action Plan with suggested improvements. Every participating household will receive a $50 voucher .

Connect Maldon

"I've always assumed 'welcome' wherever I go" (Maldon resident). 

"You have to learn how to go out and meet people when you go to a new place ... you have to take yourself outside your comfort zone ... it's about getting out where there are other people around ... lockdown has really screwed me in that way! " (new Maldon local). 

The Connect Maldon project, undertaken in 2020, has built a picture of local social and community life - how people connect, what it's like to be new here, and what makes for a sense of belonging. It also provided opportunity to try out some ideas for things that might work to connect people with eachother and the community. Our themed social walks - iso-breakers - were one fun solution. These walks will continue as part of Maldon Neighbourhood Centre's ongoing programming.
