Mallacoota Community Update 26/09/20

This update is over 30 days old.

Some fantastic warm days have arrived and a few hardy tourists have even been swimming in what is still fairly cold water temperatures. Spring flowers are out and Covid restrictions look like easing so hopefully we can all get back to the new normal soon. It is also great to see some tourists arriving from regional Victoria. Everyone I have spoken to is keen to help Mallacoota recover and accept town concerns regarding social distancing, mask wearing and hand washing. A lot are regular Mallacoota visitors and are keen to see the town that they love and hear the stories of our recovery. We have had a lot of new workers who have recently arrived to help with recovery. Simon Webb is installing new solar units on new and existing homes, Teagan Moore is the new social worker at the school, Michael Amos is the housing and welfare officer at MDHSS and Ken Spackman is the new manager at our community bank just to name a few. If anyone needs specific items/tools to help with their recovery please contact me as I am now getting offers to provide specific items, but I need to know what people require. All of the RSPCA animal packs have gone. There are still a few odds and sods as a few people ratted the bags and only took a few items from them. All of the new workwear has also been snapped up. There is still a fair bit of winter clothing available as well as knitted throw rugs and still some excellent handmade quilts. If anyone requires some commercial LED lighting for sheds or other purposes, there will be a delivery shortly care of the fantastic crew at Lakes Rotary. I have already had several people put their hands up for some when they arrive. Everyone should save the date Friday, December 4th on their calendar as the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra is coming to Mallacoota to give a free concert (maybe more than one if Covid restrictions allow). It will be at the Golf Club. Times are still to be finalised but as soon as I know it will be in the Mouth and posters around town. The MCO are giving free concerts throughout fire affected communities in East Gippsland including Sarsfield, Omeo and Sale. This will will be a fantastic opportunity to listen to a world class chamber orchestra that should not be missed. The above content is my own personal view and nor necessarily the view of MADRA.
