In a decision that has not been made lightly, the Committee of the Tolmie Sports Association Inc has announced the cancellation of the 2021 Tolmie Sports Day.  As a result of the mandatory restrictions, the dynamics and the uncertainty involved as a result of the advent and ongoing threat of COVID-19, along with the subsequent health & safety impact and risks to the Tolmie Sports Committee, the Sports Volunteers, all Sports participants, including athletes, vendors, stallholders, displayers, sponsors etc, the Tolmie Community, and by extension the wider community this decision was made at the Sports Association meeting on Tuesday night.

They have advised that all relevant personnel involved with the planning and running of the Sports will be contacted and informed before the end of October.

The committee is now looking forward to planning the 2022 Tolmie Sports and as always, thank everyone involved for your ongoing and loyal support in these most dynamic and challenging of times.

Free masks for vulnerable Tolmie residents

The Department of Health and Human Services as well as the Mansfield Community Bank with the support of the Mansfield Quilters and CWA has provided MDH with some reusable and disposable face masks to support vulnerable Victorians to help slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). In Mansfield, this includes the Primary Care Centre at Mansfield District Hospital, and our Visiting Nursing Service.

Staff at the Primary Care Centre are liasing with our local communities to assist with the distribution of masks to members of our communities who are living with chronic health conditions, or with disabilities, and who are unable to source masks for themselves. In Tolmie we are working with Mary Reilly to ensure that we can reach eligible members of the community. Please call Mary on 0488 557 986 if you know of someone in the Tolmie community who would benefit from this service.

Hall Paver Drive Still Open

Due to COVID-19 the deadline for the Tolmie Mechanics Institute Centenary paver drive has been left open-ended.  The original deadline was for the end of March 2020, however with circumstances being as they are at present, the organisers have decided to leave it open until later in the year.  Anyone interested in having a personalised paver laid at the entrance path to the hall are still encouraged to submit their form & payment in readiness for when life returns to some normality.
