Community Forum 27 May

Come along to a Post Flood Community Forum for Tumbulgum & Condong residents. You’re all invited.
The Forum will be hosted by the NSW SES and facilitated by Crisis Ready.
What is your flood story? What can you learn from and teach us about the recent flood? How can we as a community work together to improve your preparation, response and recovery for future events. We want your input to future flood planning.
Crisis Ready will be facilitating this Forum and they have a wealth of experience dealing with communities in crisis and facilitation of meetings. Further information can be found at the Crisis Ready website (www.crisisready.com.au).

As well as comments and questions, the SES would appreciate it if you could bring your photos on a USB flash drive, particularly if they show water heights,  These images will be downloaded at the meeting.

AGM

The AGM (which was deferred from the scheduled date of 11 April to allow those residing in the village and surrounds to focus on recovery from the impacts of Cyclone Debbie) and May General meeting  were held in the hall on Tuesday 9 May

A new committee was voted in to continue the works of the TCA for 2017/18

In the General Meeting following the AGM, information was shared between the SES and attendees and initial questions re the Cyclone Debbie aftermath discussed.

This provided a useful preparation for the facilitated 27 May Community Forum (details in separate item above).

Please come along to this forum, and bring along any images you have (memory stick, etc) that demonstrate levels and extent of inundation, etc. Any information on date, time and specific location associated with each image will also assist in discussion and documentation

“CHAT N CHEW”  at TUMBULGUM HALL  on 14 MARCH

This session replaced the TCA March General Meeting.

Thank you to all who attended our session in March to help us take another step towards developing a Locality Plan for Tumbulgum (including North Tumbulgum).

The evening started with a convivial session allowing around 30 attendees to enjoy a chat, drink and Pizza’s from the House of Gabriel. This led into a fruitful work-shop with great participation from all those attending.Chat n Chew 14 March 2017

The thoughts and ideas discussed and recorded are being documented.

Other events in late March and through April have overtaken this process.

We will complete the process soon (most probably after the AGM) and circulate to TCA Members, so that you can consider and offer any further thoughts and ideas before we progress to the next phase.
