Community update web tile April 2022.jpg

Previously, our community newsletter Groundswell was sent to all ratepayers with their rates notice. The printing and distribution process meant content had to be finalised weeks in advance. Because we want to provide ratepayers with up-to-date information – particularly with COVID-19 restrictions continuing to change – we have instead included a community update with the recent rates notice.

The community update April 2022(PDF, 385KB)  features the exciting Surf Coast Cultural Centre and how you can play a supporting role, the new Stribling Reserve Community Pavilion which will be an invaluable space in Lorne, inspiring community-led project Getjawil Garden, and the ways in which the newly-refurbished Winchelsea Shire Hall is benefiting the town.

You can view previous versions of Groundswell below.
