Hospital AGM

The 157th Maldon Hospital AGM, held last Thursday night, was well attended.  

The reports indicate that financially the Hospital is in a good position, with an operating surplus.  There has been an increase in acute bed admissions and steady occupancy rates in residential aged care.  Thanks to the commitment and hard work of staff and volunteers, residents receive a high level of care, can participate in a broad range of activities and live in a warm and friendly environment.

VGR Upgrade

Thanks to a grant of $30,000 from the State Government’s Investing in Transport Regions initiative, VGR has upgraded the railway line between Maldon and Castlemaine.  

Bendigo West Member Maree Edwards, Mayor Cr Christine Henderson, local Cr Sharon Telford,  Public Transport Victoria’s Brad Murnane and VGR’s Andrew Reynolds gathered at the Maldon Railway Station last week to mark the completion of the project.  

Supreme Court Appeal Withdrawn

The Supreme Court Case appeal by Grandview Poultry, owner of the Moolort/Strathlea broiler factory, has been ‘struck out’ by consent.  

This action was initiated by Grandview’s legal counsel on Tuesday this week and the court order was signed on the last day.  This means that the appeal has been withdrawn and the VCAT decision stands.  There can be no further appeals on the VCAT decision.
