The hive of activity in Tatura as well as ample time community members spent volunteering was highlighted at the recent What’s Happening in Your Town event.
Co-ordinated by the Tatura Community Plan Committee, member Marisa O’Halloran said the event was another great success.
‘‘(Our chair) Carl Walters welcomed the attendees and gave an overview of the Tatura Community Plan committee and the projects that the group has been involved in — such as Lake Bartlett and Mactier Park,’’ Ms O’Halloran said.
Representatives of the more than 20 community groups in attendance then shared details about their organisations and the projects and activities they were currently undertaking.
Groups that spoke were Tatura Lions Club, Tatura Community House, Tatura Pool, Shepparton Education Plan, Tatura Guides, Tatura Park, Tatura Museum, Victory Hall, Tatura Primary School, Transition Tatura, Tatura Walks and Rides, Tatura Hospital Committee, The Convent Development Group, Tatura Film Society, Moyola Lodge, Tatura Probus Club, Tatura Men’s Shed, Tatura RSL and the Heart Safe Community.
Ms O’Halloran said attendees were also invited to add any projects or ideas to the list that the Community Plan currently held and promoted to council for implementation.
‘‘There was then ample time for groups to network and share ideas, with many conversations following,’’ she said.
‘‘A theme noted by many attendees was how active the Tatura community is and the amazing amount of volunteer time that our residents give to our community.’’
Catered by the Tatura Senior Citizens, Ms O’Halloran said they did a fabulous job and the hot soup on arrival was greatly appreciated given the cold and wet night.
‘‘There was also a great spread of supper at the conclusion of the evening,’’ she said.
‘‘The committee would like to thank all the community groups that came to the event and shared their ideas... and the Senior Citizens for again hosting the event and providing the catering.’’
Ms O’Halloran also thanked the Greater Shepparton City Council for its ongoing support of the Community Plan and for the evening.
