Bli Bli Village
It was terrific to attend the official launch of the Bli Bli Village Town Centre. Construction is now well underway. The town centre precinct, with its health hub and gym, boutique tavern and extended retail offering, will certainly put Bli Bli on the map. I would like to acknowledge and thank Roz and Michael White for having the vision and passion to invest in this wonderful community.
A new community event
Bli Bli had its inaugural charity walk event last Sunday. This year’s event was held in recognition of domestic violence victims to show support, raise much needed funds and shine a light on this issue that affects our community in many ways. I would like to thank Edith Blanck and her hardworking Neighbourhood Watch committee for organising such a meaningful day.
Community Association meeting
I recently attended the Bli Bli Community Association’s monthly meeting. The group again provided the opportunity for me to hear firsthand of the issues affecting its community.
The group also heard from Barry Bull, an outstanding guest speaker. Barry told the story of how he combines his high profile in the music industry with the story of his grandson, who was born with a hearing problem, in a special performance to raise funds for the Hear and Say Centre.
Meet and greet
I’ll be at the Bli Bli IGA on October 3 from 9-11am if you would like to come along for a chat.
