Just a letter of thanks and appreciation to the South Gippsland Shire Council for recently supporting the Fish Creek Community Development Group, which as chairperson I represented at the awards night, with a grant for new equipment (laptop).
The laptop is being used to assist in scanning archives and developing new shared resources for the group and wider Fish Creek community.
I’d also like to say thank you to all the other groups who were represented on the night.
Having been fortunate to attend a few of these ceremonies now, wearing different community hats, it is a heart-warming and inspiring night to hear about the great projects that the community grants program supports and to meet the volunteers behind them.
We have a great culture of volunteerism in South Gippsland which benefits all of us not only with the projects directly, it provides endless opportunities to be connected. Well done everyone!
I’d also like to thank the local media in your positive coverage. Your role in highlighting the good in our region is paramount and I recognise that this often means non-standard work hours for yourselves personally.
Meg Edwards, Fish Creek.
