    by Joel2Will, 5 months ago

    Playful Hearts - AnglicareWA Pop up Playtime has had to suspend its usual activities of supporting local families by delivering activities with families with young kids across the whole Binjareb (Peel) Region. Playful Hearts has handed over the keys to the Halo team during this Covid time, to support them to deliver much needed food hampers and other necessities to vulnerable families.

    Iso Art

    by Barb, 5 months ago

    Since 2011, every Tuesday, the Mandurah Plein Air Artists meet to paint outdoors. During isolation, we still paint and stay connected, but within the confines of our homes. Weekly challenges have us working outside our comfort zones and once complete, photos of everyone’s paintings are posted on the group’s Facebook page. Everyone is welcome to take part and it’s a good way to try outdoor painting without having anyone watching.

    In addition to the group challenges, I have been using this time to experiment with techniques, styles colours and tools. One scene has been painted four times, in four completely... Continue reading

    Council calls to the elderly

    by steve bettencourt, 5 months ago

    Hello there, I would just like to thank the council for calling the elderly during this time. My dad was feeling down and the situation was getting to him and we as a family were helping him work through it, when a phone call came from yourselves asking about his well being. This one phone call helped him turn a corner and get him back on track, so thank you so much for what seems to be such a simple act but has changed his outlook to the better. Thanks Mandurah City Council.

    Walking the dog

    by raylynup, 5 months ago

    I have been walking my neighbours dog as they are older and not able to get out and about as normal. I have been taking their dog for a walk twice a day - not only keeping fit myself but Bella is enjoying the walks and loosing a bit of weight herself. Walking Bella I have also met many new neighbours on our estate, so a positive outcome for us both. With time on our hands it's easy to spare a bit of time to help our neighbours

    My Street Cares

    5 months ago

    Billy Neal, a local Falcon resident started a simple site mystreetcares.com to encourage neighbours to support each other within their street.

    Here is Billy's story:

    I started a simple site "mystreetcares.com" you may have seen it in the mandurah mail. The site features quick and easy instructions to set it up in your street, that have been fine tuned as we developed it in our street (Koolinda St). The program confidentially identifies those at risk in the street; elderly, sick, kids with asthma etc. It also identifies those who can help and what skills they have; car for drop off...
