Welcome Edition 116 Out Now!

Who can believe we are already half way through the year! Time has certainly managed to get away from us. I have been in this role now for 6 months and I have loved every minute of it. I have met some beautiful people, read some fantastic local stories, and as you would be aware, I have made some changes. Some have had great feedback, some I have received criticism over. This is to be expected when changes are made.

I highly encourage you all too please email or call me if you have concerns or would like to see different things in the magazine and I will take all your suggestions on board so we can remain the same unbiased, unpolitical and non-religious community magazine we always have been. I am unable to make changes, or fix issues if I am unaware of them so I consider everyone’s opinions worthy of looking at and making any changes needed. After all, this is our COMMUNITY magazine! Also if you have things you love about us, please let us know that as well!

June has been a month of birthdays for our staff, Deb, Richard and myself all are June babies!

Ok, now let us look at some of the wonderful things we have in the magazine this month. I fell in love with the poem we have on pages 8 and 9. What a beautiful way to sum up the COVID 19 situation.

Also, a massive congratulations to the beautiful Maria Boland for being awarded the Order of Australia Medal. How wonderfully lucky we are to have Maria in our community. If you run into Maria in the streets, make sure you wish her congratulations for the service she has provided our country!

On that note, I hope you all have a wonderful day, Until next edition, Take Care, Stay Safe

-Cherrie
