IN BRIEF

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS - Luisa was one of 40 peo­ple in­ter­viewed for Pippa Wis­cher’s book

The thoughts and feel­ings of 40 peo­ple di­ag­nosed with a life­lim­it­ing ill­ness and re­ceiv­ing pal­lia­tive care sup­port have been pub­lished in vis­ual artist Pippa Wis­cher’s book The Dream­ers, which prompts read­ers to think about the deeper ques­tions of life and what mat­ters most.

Pal­lia­tive Care Vic­to­ria has pro­duced a pho­to­graphic ex­hi­bi­tion us­ing the images and in­ter­views from The Dream­ers, and Lower Hume Pal­lia­tive Care Sey­mour Health is now bring­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion to the re­gion.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be open to the pub­lic, free of charge, at three venues — Sey­mour Li­brary, Kil­more Li­brary and the Alexan­dra hospi­tal — from this Satur­day un­til October 13.

Lower Hume Pal­lia­tive Care vol­un­teers will also be at each venue be­tween 11 am and 1 pm daily to chat about pal­lia­tive care and its vol­un­teer pro­gram.

Coun­cil ques­tion time

The next Mitchell Shire Com­mu­nity Ques­tions and Hear­ings Com­mit­tee is sched­uled for Mon­day night.

The monthly fo­rum al­lows res­i­dents to pose a ques­tion, and make pre­sen­ta­tions and sub­mis­sions to coun­cil.

It will be held at the Broad­ford Coun­cil Cham­bers from 7 pm.

Avenel fun run

Avenel’s fifth an­nual fun run and walk will be held on Sun­day.

The event takes par­tic­i­pants on a 2.5 km jour­ney up Lovers Hill, and en­cour­ages chil­dren and adults to take a new look at Avenel while en­joy­ing a run or walk.

The run be­gins at 9 am and starts and fin­ishes near Ju­bilee Park.

Or­gan­is­ers would pre­fer par­tic­i­pants to reg­is­ter by phon­ing 0438 678 323, or you can reg­is­ter on the day.

There is an open class, as well as a sec­ondary and pri­mary age group, but the essence of the run is just to have fun and take in the views and fam­i­lies are en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate.

The Dream­ers.
