Loddon Shire Mayoral Column 17 January 2023

Thank you BlazeAid
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my deep gratitude to BlazeAid for their tireless efforts in supporting members of the community during the recent floods.
BlazeAid is a volunteer-based organisation that provides assistance to farmers and communities affected by natural disasters, and they have been an invaluable resource for us in the aftermath of the flood.
Their volunteers have worked tirelessly to help repair fences and other infrastructure, and their dedication and compassion have been a source of strength for many of us during this difficult time.
I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to BlazeAid and all of their volunteers for their invaluable contributions to our community.
Your hard work and selflessness are truly appreciated, and we are forever grateful for your support
Dive In: Submit your feedback on the community pools
I am committed to ensuring that our community resources are meeting the needs of our residents. That is why I am writing to request your participation in a survey about the community swimming pools in our Shire.
Your feedback is importance to us, as we are committed to ensuring that the pool is meeting the needs and preferences of our community. The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete, and all responses are anonymous.
Your participation will help us to understand how the community pool is being used and what improvements can be made. By taking part in the survey, you will go into the draw to win a season pass membership.
Together let’s make the community pools an even more enjoyable and valuable resource for the community.
To access the survey, please click on your specific pool’s link:
