Weekly Update 5/2/2011

Hi one and all –

Updates for the Week:

• Had a very productive meeting with the Federal Member for Hinkler – Mr Paul Neville yesterday about this proposed project. Mr Neville indicated he would like to become involved in opening doors for funding avenues and to local Business forums. We thank Mr Neville for his time and efforts.
• The Day-to-Day Living (Part of Centacare) sent in several Interest Notifications on behalf of their members with additional comments that there are several others who will also be submitting their interest notifications. Thanks to Nicky (Co-Ordinator) for getting the message to her members.
• Vicki and Tracey from Fraser Coast Council – both Community Development Officers with the Council in Hervey Bay and Maryborough – have indicated they will speak about the proposed program at their Community Health forums when next they meet. Thanks Vicki and Tracey.
• Betty from Health and Community Care has been in contact and she has asked for information about the program and how it can assists members under her administration. Thankyou Betty.
• The Hervey Bay 60and Better group ( http://www.60andbetterherveybay.com.au ) have indicated their interest in the program and will hopefully have a promotion of the program in their Newsletter to all their members – thanks Kate…
• The Gladstone Aquatic Therapy Association has been up and running for over 20 years – the originator of that program now resides in Hervey Bay – her name is Carole and I have been talking to her about her efforts to get the program up and running in Gladstone. She is a mountain of wisdom and I want to thank her personally for the advice and guidance she has offered to date and hopefully continues to do so. Thankyou Carole.
• I am still waiting on some return calls from other Carer Groups who are a little busy with the ‘flood relief’ efforts – thanks to you all for the good work you do …
• You can now keep up to date with feedback and comments on FACEBOOK – please go to this http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/home.php?sk=group_194681900557956&ap=1 link to joinin the commentary and log you story or interest in the aqua therapy program.
• PLEASE – to receive more updates about the program – go to the website http://www.fcata.wordpress.com and click on the RSS feeds or the ‘subscribe by e-mail’ link – this will have any update on the website sent t to your e-mail directly.

I am very optimistic after having met with Mr Neville – he has in the past been a great advocate for Community Health and Sporting programs in the Fraser Coast region. His interest in this program was genuine and with his ability to open doors – this program should get the recognition and support it deserves.

It s been another good week and with the message getting out there about the program – the feedback has been nothing but positive …

Bye for now … Ian Bleys
