  • Reflecting on what worked well in projects successfully completed
  • Review projects that haven’t been completed and identify any new ones.
  • Identify the characteristics of resilience in your community and what your community values most to help plan for risks associated with the local environment.

Dumping Rubbish – Not On!

Residents of Tolmie, both permanant & weekenders, should be reminded that the bins at the recreation reserve are NOT for personal use.   Sadly on too many occassions, the bins at the rec reserve, hall and CFA have been filled with rubbish left by residents, thus leaving no bin space for campers and users of the recreation reserve.   Although it may appear that there are ample bins at these facilities, only 3 bins are allowed to be placed out for each collection day.  The filling of these bins reflects badly on our facilities and ultimately can impact on the income received from users who pay for their use.  Please think twice – this is just not on!
