Dear Community members

The Results of the Get Snapping Photo Competion are:

Romsey-Lancefield Rotary President Anne Collins presented first prize in the 2018 Romsey photo competition to Lisa Worden. Sandy Webb 2nd and Dot Theuma 3rd. People’s prize went to Birgit Gossiti.

Over 100 entries came to this inaugural competition, ‘Get Snapping” with pics of life in Romsey. They are on display in the Romsey township for two weeks. The idea came from a ‘happy pic” taken (with consent) of two toddlers talking to a pony on Five Mile Creek. Skill, time and individual ingenuity gave pics of Romsey life in sports, nature, with animals, historic buildings or just friends together.

Entries came across ages, senior members of our community down to 11 year olds. Thanks are due to the judges Michelle Thompson, Cr Bill West and Gillian Gorrie, to Romsey Lancefield Rotary Club Inc and especially Rotarian Josh Reeves of Ray White Real Estate for digital support, to all local businesses, and to all who helped in making this town photo competition happen.

Barry Nunn, Sharyn Ede, Anne Collins (President Romsey Lancefield Rotary Club Inc) and Gillian Gorri explains how the judges reached their decisions and thank all those who entered and/or supported the Get Snapping Event.

MEDIA RELEASE Thursday 18th October, 2018

Romsey Ecotherapy Park Inc (REP) committee members were delighted with this morning’s announcement in Romsey of the Andrews’ Labour Government’s funding pledge of $718,000 towards further implementation of the Romsey Ecotherapy Park.

This commitment compliments the $80,000 grant pledged in 2017 by the Lancefield and Romsey Community bank branches of the Bendigo bank towards the Sensory Therapeutic Space. Minister for Regional Development, Jaala Pulford, made the announcement on site at Romsey Ecotherapy Park flanked by State MLA for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas.

Macedon Ranges Shire Council was represented by CEO Margot Stork, Karen Stevens (Director Community Wellbeing), Rod Clough (Manager Recreation and Sport), East Ward Councillors Natasha Gayfer, Bill West and Henry Bleeck.

REP President, Ms. Raelene Mottram said, “Romsey Ecotherapy Park Inc committee members are absolutely thrilled with this funding promise, albeit contingent on election outcome. This has come hot on the heels of the Pick My Project success 2 weeks ago which saw $200,000 secured for the Climbing Forest installation early next year. With the Park’s momentum truly rolling along, Romsey Ecotherapy Park Inc is now undertaking a public campaign to seek corporate and philanthropic support to expediently facilitate this regionally significant health and wellbeing resource’s completion.”

Ms. Mottram also acknowledged the support of Macedon Ranges Shire Council and the founding members’ of the Park’s committee which was formed (initially as “Greater Romsey All Abilities Park Inc) almost 10 years ago. “The germination of an idea, its development and the subsequent commitment to the Park vision is a wonderful demonstration of persistence and resilience driven by vision.”
