Community Clean Up Sunday 2 May 2021

A huge thanks to our committed community clean up crew who came along to Fairbairn Park, Ascot Vale as we deep cleaned a section of the Maribyrnong River and around the sports ovals, leaving them in much better shape than we found them.

Polystyrene, drink bottles, straws, soft plastics, ball pit balls and a whole bunch of other random stuff was found in places it’s not meant to be.

While we were clean up-ing, the dedicated peeps at Rotary Club of Flemington Kensington were planting up a storm with the help of some truly fab Council conservation officers.

High fives to everyone involved!!



Electric Vehicle FestivalSaturday 17 April 2021

This event was EPIC!

We had hundreds of people turn up, speeches from Local, State & Federal members, learnt lots and had a tonne of fun!

If you couldn’t make it along on the day, below is a summary of the day outlining the who and the what, as well as the important next steps for individuals, Council and the State Government.
