Jen has been involved with the Tatura Community House for the past six years as a member of the Committee of Management. She is passionate about the local community and the access and availability to services that Tatura offers. Jen has a professional background in land and water management in Northern Victoria. Living in the Tatura area for the past ten years, Jen volunteers with a number of local community groups. She hopes that the Tatura Community House can continue to do the great work it already does and facilitate programs and services to meet changing community needs into the future.
I was asked if I would be interested in joining the Committee of the Tatura Community House in 2015 as Treasurer. At the time I knew very little about what the Tatura Community House was about. My husband and I had recently sold our dairy farm after 33 years and so the opportunity was there to give some time to the community. I have found it very rewarding to be a part of a vibrant team and I have had the pleasure of meeting a wide range of very interesting people.
Gaynor has been part of the Tatura community since moving here in 2012 with her family. She has a keen interest in community involvement and volunteerism, and joined the Committee of Tatura Community House last year. Her background includes local government roles in community development and she has a particular interest in opportunities for engagement with Tatura’s youth. Gaynor is a coach with the Tatura Netball Association and is a passionate Richmond supporter.
I have been involved in the Tatura community for many years. I am an enthusiastic volunteer and joined the Committee last year and this year I will be nominating for the Secretary role. I have a sporting background playing netball, basketball and squash in my younger days and now lawn bowls. I have sat on various committees during this time including 10 years as Treasurer of the Ballantyne Centre Committee of Management. I look forward to being part of a great team that will make the Community House sustainable into the future.
Bev has been an active community member all of her life and served on the Community House Committee for nine years. She was awarded life membership with the Tatura Netball Association after over 20 years of involvement. Bev has dedicated the last eight years to the Hill Top Golf and Country Club as a player, captain and co ordinator of ladies golf. Bev is also passionate about travel and cooking and coordinates many Community events and cooking programs.
Over the years I have been connected to the Tatura Community house through attending some of the activities that have been on offer. Recently I have been drawn to the house through the Boomerang Bag sewing mornings. Boomerang Bags is about making bags, diverting waste, starting conversations, connecting with each other, fostering sustainable behaviour, and having fun! I am pleased to be involved with the Community House and supporting the concept of Tatura becoming a more sustainable community. I joined the Committee last year and I am enjoying gaining insight into the operation of the Community House and getting to know the Tatura Community House community.
