Local state member, Mary-Anne Thomas, visited the DNC

Last Friday 25 August the Member for Macedon and Victorian Minister for Health, Mary-Anne Thomas paid a visit to the DNC.  She was fulsome in her praise for our community work, recognising the valuable role we play in the community.  She was glad to hear how supportive Working Heritage has been to DNC, for both our disability-compliant automatic doors and for the maintenance carried out on the Court House with new windows, guttering and painting giving this historic building a much-needed facelift while maintaining its historical profile.

DNC Manager Danny Liversidge and Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas inspect the Court House upgrades.

Minister Thomas praised DNC for its initiative in establishing a shower and laundry facility for the homeless in the area.  She was interested to note that we had inquiries from organisations from across the country who wanted to establish similar facilities.

She was also impressed by the support we have provided to the community in helping dozens of Daylesford residents to apply for the Victorian Government’s $250 Power Saving Bonus.

Our Manager, Danny Liversidge gave the Minister a tour of our new Co-Working Space (soon to be launched) and our visitor was impressed by this initiative designed to support those working from home, in an environment of patchy mobile and internet coverage.

We are grateful for the interest and support we have received for a long period of time from our local Member, and enjoyed this opportunity to reinforce her support.


DNC Joke of the Week

Three elderly gentlemen, Eddie, Peter and Martin go to the doctor for their memory test.  It’s a miracle they remembered the appointment. Anyway, the doctor starts by asking…

“Eddie, what is five times five?”
“191.” is Eddie’s reply.

The doctor rolls his eyes and looks up at the ceiling, and says…..
“Peter it’s your turn, what is five times five”?
“Wednesday.” replies Peter.

The doctor shakes his head sadly, then asks the third man…
“Okay, Martin it’s your turn. What is five times five”?
“Twenty-five.” says Martin.

“That’s great Martin.” says the doctor.  “How did you get your answer”?
“Easy.” says Martin. “Just subtract 191 from Wednesday.”
