The Tatura Guardian - - Front Page - By Tara Whitsed

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.
