Itís all systems go for the 3925 Community Building Project and the Community Action Team (CAT) with the recent appointment of a new community facilitator, Jillian Kelly.

"Itís a very exciting project to be involved in and Iím really looking forward to meeting the 3925 community of San Remo, Newhaven and Cape Woolamai," said Jillian.

Jillian will have the opportunity to meet many residents at a community sausage sizzle on Saturday 23 November from 10am to 12 noon at Cleeland Bight, Cottesloe Avenue, Cape Woolamai. Everyone is invited to the sausage sizzle. The event will also be an opportunity for people to view displays for a proposed community rotunda and provide feedback.

The construction of a community rotunda and picnic facilities was proposed as a much needed project during a community opportunity workshop held last year. The workshop identified that Cape Woolamai needed a community meeting facility.

"We would like everyone to come along, enjoy the sausage sizzle and have a chat about the proposed plans," said Jillian. "Take the opportunity to enjoy an informal morning with your neighbours.

A number of other projects are already currently underway, including the Community Friendship Garden in Newhaven and the development of a low maintenance park at the Ports and Harbour site. A community noticeboard was also erected in Cape Woolamai as part of the original ĎPartners in Community Building Gippsland Programí.

Jillian said that she is very passionate about community building.

"I believe it is up to each of us to make a difference, and Iím delighted to be involved in this project," said Jillian.

A significant amount of Jillianís time will be spent in the community of 3925.

For more information about the project, contact Jillian on 0427 528 741. Jillian is also available at the Newhaven Hall on Tuesdays between 9:30am and 12:30pm and other times by appointment.

"Please donít hesitate to contact me," said Jillian. If you telephone the mobile, I will call you back to save you the expense of the call."
