Member Update

Friday, 11 October 2019

I have some exciting news regarding the appointment of a new Chief Executive.

As mentioned previously Management Committee decided to do a total review of the position and at the same time work with an external consultant to review the whole structure of the office.

I can now announce that Management Committee has appointed Matthew Monaghan to the Chief Executive position. Matthew will commence on Monday 28 October.

Matthew brings to the position a wealth of qualifications and experience managing membership based organisations, excellent commercial acumen and strong leadership skills.

Matthew is keen to meet members and will be attending events on weekends where possible. The Sunbury Canine Club has kindly invited Matthew to their show on Cup Day, where I will endeavour to introduce him to as many members as possible.

Start of Works: Frankston-Dandenong Road Roundabout

Friday, 4 October 2019

We wish to advise our members of the following road upgrade soon to commence by Major Road Projects Victoria as detailed in the following communication.

As part of the Thompsons Road Upgrade, we’re starting work to replace the roundabout at Frankston-Dandenong Road with traffic lights to ease congestion and improve travel times.

From Monday 7 October until further notice, we’ll reduce the northbound and eastbound lanes on the approach and through the roundabout from three to two lanes.

Changes to the way you travel

We are reducing both the speed limit and the number of lanes approaching the roundabout and on the roundabout, to make way for crews and machines to work behind the safety barriers. As a result of these changes we expect congestion in this area to increase, meaning longer journey times, especially during peak periods.

We strongly encourage you to plan your trip ahead and, if possible, seek alternative routes to avoid this area.

We’ll endeavour to complete the works as soon as possible and thank you for your understanding and patience during this important upgrade.

No Butts About It

Thursday, 3 October 2019

We wish to remind members who smoke to use the designated ashtrays provided around KCC Park when discarding cigarettes.  NEVER throw them on the ground.

Today, thanks to our Acting CE and staff members, a fire was extinguished opposite the Library from a thrown cigarette on the ground. This fire could have easily got out of control via surrounding bark, dry leaves and grass which could have spread quickly to cars parked nearby.

Every time you finish a cigarette it is YOUR responsibility to make sure it is completely out and disposed of properly.  So be alert and show consideration when discarding of your smoking materials.
