Hi All
Central Goldfields Shire Council has joined the Community Activation and Social Isolation (CASI) initiative to help support local residents who are feeling lonely or isolated due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
As part of the program community members can be linked to the Central Goldfields Community Connector (Audrey Bartlett) who can help with connections with local organisations, local networks and opportunities that provide ongoing emotional, practical, or social support.
Direct calls can be made on 5461 0610.
From Wednesday 11 November 2020 we will be conducting Town Hall Community Connector sessions. The Community Connector will be available in-person at different locations throughout the Shire. Dates, times and locations are available. Please find the attached flyer that contains all the information.
Please share the information with any groups that you can..................

There are six great walks to explore across the region, and the rules are simple:
✖️ Choose your selected walk and head there!
✖️ Mark off the sites on the Bingo card as you see them
✖️ Once you find all the sites in a straight vertical, horizontal or diagonal line you’ve got Bingo!

Plus, you can win sporting equipment each week simply by sending us a photo of your completed Bingo card or yourself with one of the sites along the way!
