The Charlton Neighbourhood has recently celebrated it’s second birthday serving the community. Looking back over the past 24 months and the numerous courses, activities, grant funding, Community Car trips and social connection delivered pays great tribute to the committee, staff and volunteers involved. Recently concluded courses included a Responsible Service of Alcohol, First Aid & CPR Refresher Course and Barista training. The Charlton Neighbourhood House is also excited to be delivering another Certificate Course on March 30 for Hygienic Food Safety and Handling (SITXFSA001).
Amongst other news is the employment of a new Administration Assistant and Finance Officer, plus the return to 5 days a week opening; hours of operation between 10:00am and 4:00pm. This increases access for our community for car bookings, printing, general enquiries, internet access and much more.
An exciting initiative currently underway is our Community Transport Survey. Charlton is asking our residents across all ages their opinions on possible future transport options in the town and across the shire and region. Maybe it’s dedicated bike or walking tracks; maybe a daily bus or taxi service; access to sports training and weekend games; better pathways for wheelchairs and walking aids; lots of options to consider. Anyone who hasn’t filled in a survey are invited to drop in and complete one, or a survey can be sent to you by phoning 0473759456. It is hoped that the results may lead to funding of one or more suggestions that are put forward.
