    With a great turn-out, lots of information, participants jumped right in and had some robust discussions (despite the occasional technical hiccup). There was a buzz of anticipation as members realised the large scope of the project.

    The next meeting will be smaller and focused locally as we split up into individual groups to be held in the following townships: Portland, Heywood, Casterton and Narrawong.

    Please ensure you have completed your relevant paperwork, including:

    We look forward to working with you all on this exciting project!
