I have just returned to Melbourne from a trip to Sydney so this newsletter from Colleen Hartland will be a bit too late for forwarding as two of the fliers’ handouts are scheduled today and yesterday. The newsletter’s content is as follows:

The Altona-Seaholme community has been working hard to ensure the next Altona Loop community meeting, and the whole campaign, is a great success.

The next Altona Loop Community Meeting is 7:30pm Tuesday 29th March at the Altona RSL Function Room, 31 Sargood Street Altona. The meeting had to be moved to a much bigger venue to accommodate the large numbers expected. The first public meeting was about informing the public, and this meeting is about taking action. Make sure you are there!

Again, the Minister has been invited to attend, answer questions and hear your concerns. This week I’ll be standing up in Parliament insisting he accept this invitation from the community and attend the meeting.

If you have just a few spare hours you can help.

1. This Thursday 24th, Friday 25th and Monday 28th of March, during morning and afternoon peak travel time, we want to have a group of people at each of the Altona Loop stations handing out fliers for the community meeting. It’s a great and easy way to reach many people.

2. You can do a letterbox drop in your street or your neighbourhood. We can arrange getting fliers to you, or you are welcome to drop by and pick them up.

3. You can put up posters. Noticeboards, cafe’s and shops are good places to put up posters. We can arrange getting the posters to you, or you are welcome to drop by and pick them up.

4. Tell your friends! Word of mouth is a very effective tool – simply forward this email. If you can help out please contact Adele in my office on [email protected]gov.au or phone 9689 6373. You can find more information on the campaign by clicking here.

I hope to see you at the Altona Loop community meeting 7:30pm Tuesday 29th March.

Kind Regards
Colleen Hartland
