El­more and Nan­neella work to keep one step ahead of ice

Campaspe News - - NEWS -

FOL­LOW­ING suc­cess­ful work­shops in Rochester and Lock­ing­ton, the Melt the Ice work­shops are back on again in El­more and Nan­neella.

This will give the peo­ple of these towns the chance to talk about ways to re­duce the ef­fects of ice and other drugs in a com­mu­nity-neu­tral man­ner.

While ice is not yet seen as a mas­sive is­sue in either town, both want to get ahead of any po­ten­tial prob­lems.

In El­more, the Memo­rial Hall will be host­ing the work­shop at which the aim is to find pos­i­tive out­comes and ways of ad­dress­ing the is­sues.

‘‘We look to es­tab­lish a com­mu­nity ac­tion team,’’ said Memo­rial Hall mem­ber Jenny Camp­bell.

‘‘Hope­fully, that will al­low the com­mu­nity to be­come proac­tive about the is­sues in the re­gion.’’

In Nan­neella, the Memo­rial Hall there will be host­ing the work­shop and ev­ery­one is in­vited.

Pres­i­dent of the Nan­neella Memo­rial Hall, Brett Gled­hill said ice is only one is­sue go­ing around.

‘‘There are mul­ti­ple is­sues go­ing around, and we want to be able to give sup­port,’’ he said.

‘‘We want to break down the bar­ri­ers and cater for all age groups.

‘‘Our ul­ti­mate out­come will be knowl­edge and what can be done into the fu­ture.’’

The El­more work­shop is on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 15 from 7pm in the Memo­rial Hall at 63 Her­vey Street and the Nan­neella work­shop is on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 22 from 7pm in the Memo­rial Hall on Echuca-Nan­neella Road.
