Com­mu­nity Of­fice for Nagam­bie peo­ple to use

Euroa Gazette - - FATHERS DAY 2017 -

Mayor of Strath­bo­gie Shire Amanda McClaren and coun­cil­lors Deb Swan and John Ma­son and mem­bers of the com­mu­nity in attendance.

Nagam­bie branch man­ager Michael Prowse wel­comed ev­ery­one to the launch and ex­plained that the Bendigo Bank was the ma­jor backer to make the home of­fice a re­al­ity for the com­mu­nity.

As well as equip­ment be­ing supplied, mem­bers of the Bendigo Bank team will be avail­able to as­sist com­mu­nity groups.

Chair­man Trompp spoke about the pur­pose of the Com­mu­nity Of­fice and the Bendigo Bank itself.

How the bank would like to en­cour­age more lo­cals to open ac­counts, for them­selves, com­mu­nity groups, in­vest­ments, loans, in­sur­ance and other ser­vices pro­vided by the Bendigo Bank.

Mr Trompp men­tioned that $50,000 had been do­nated back into the com­mu­nity over the past three years, and more would be forth­com­ing in the near fu­ture.

Com­mu­nity groups can use the of­fice and its state of the art tech­nol­ogy such as com­put­ers, print­ers, wifi, soft­ware to help them cre­ate news­let­ters, re­ports, grant ap­pli­ca­tions, posters and flyers for events, and use a meeting space if re­quired.

All this is funded by the bank as part of their sup­port for Nagam­bie.

Mayor McClaren con­grat­u­lat- ed the Nagam­bie Bendigo Bank on be­ing the very first to have a Com­mu­nity Of­fice to serve the com­mu­nity and its vol­un­teers.

A cel­e­bra­tory cake was duly cut by Cr McClaren and the guests had the op­por­tu­nity to view the new fa­cil­i­ties be­fore en­joy­ing morn­ing teal and a chat on the fu­ture of the Com­mu­nity Of­fice and bank in Nagam­bie.

Michael Prowse re­minded those present that the bank is open on Mon­day, Thurs­days and Fri­days.

Their friendly staff are only too will­ing to as­sist the pa­trons of the bank and those who need sup­port in the Com­mu­nity Of­fice fa­cil­i­ties.
