Duncan Dey, Durrumbul

Council staff do an amazing job, and some even better. One of those is Joanne McMurtry, now departed from her role in assisting committees to manage our many community halls. She’ll remain a local in this area. I’m expressing my own opinion, not that of the hall committee I’m on – we haven’t yet had time to create collective comments.

Joanne was responsive and got things done with a minimum of fuss and always with a smile. She kept us on our toes but didn’t bury us in red tape. She was an excellent conduit from us (the volunteers) back to the mother ship (Council, in turn a satellite of the NSW government).

Many thanks Joanne, for those years of progress and stability. I’m sure other hall committees feel the same. I look forward to seeing you around.

 


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
