It has been a frustrating few months for the hardworking volunteers of the JCAG Sense of Community Group who organise community-building events in Junortoun.
After our annual Welcome to Summer event in December was cancelled due to wet weather our community then battled a summer of extreme heat and bushfires.
JCAG hosted an Australia Day breakfast and flag-raising in partnership with the Junortoun CFA and this was well attended considering the very hot weather and the ever present concern about fire risk.
Unfortunately our new event the Junortoun Neighbourhood Garage Sale had to be cancelled this month due to restrictions on community gatherings relating to the coronavirus.
This was a great pity as we have over 40 sites registered for this event, and our volunteers had invested a great deal of time and effort coordinating and promoting the sale.
JCAG hopes to organise and conduct the event at a future date when circumstances allow.
Also we were forced to cancel the annual Clean Up Junortoun Day which was to be held on Sunday 29 March. We hope to hold this event in the spring time. For the moment you are encouraged to clean up within and immediately outside your property, or to take a bag with you and collect litter and rubbish if you go for a walk in our streets or bushland.
If you spot an incident that requires the attention of the City of Greater Bendigo, or Coliban Water, or other authorities use Snap Send Solve (see below) to report the issue and keep Junortoun safe, clean and tidy.
