Diamond Valley To Benefit More From Shade

Three community groups in Nillumbik Shire have shared in almost $27,000 for some much needed protection from the sun. Labor Members Danielle Green and Vicki Ward today announced the recipients of grants from the second round of the Andrews Government’s Community Shade Grants Program. Ms Green said shade in outdoor public spaces, when used along with other sun protection measures including sunscreen and protective clothing, forms the best defence against UV over-exposure. “We are supporting people in Nillumbik to be sun smart and prevent skin cancer, while also embracing the outdoors and enjoying a more active and healthy lifestyle,” Ms Green said. “Spending time outdoors is part of a healthy lifestyle, and it is important shade is easily available where people come together,” she said. Organisations in Nillumbik that will receive a grant from the second round of the Community Shade Grants Program are: 1st Diamond Creek Scout Group, Scouts Victoria ($4,497). Diamond Creek Men's Shed ($21,463). Diamond Valley Uniting Church ($977). Ms Ward said the Labor Government has committed $15 million for skin cancer prevention initiatives, including $5 million for SunSmart campaigns and $10 million in grants for shade in public places and government schools. “Skin cancer is a major health issue for Victorians, yet it’s mostly preventable. We know Nillumbik locals are sun smart, which is why these grants have been taken up with such enthusiasm,” Ms Ward said. “Terrific local groups like the Diamond Creek Men’s Shed show real leadership when it comes to health promotion and I congratulate them on their successful – and potentially lifesaving - grant for their shed and members,” she said. The Community Shade Grant Program provides grants for shade development, including building new shade, repairing existing shade, purchasing portable shade or creating natural shade by planting trees. It is estimated that 40,000 new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in Victoria every year, and in 2015, 421 Victorians died from skin cancer, over 1.5 times the Victorian road toll that year.   Media Inquiries: Brian O’Connor 9432-9782.

Apprentices Shape The Future Of The Mernda Rail Line

The Andrews Labor Government’s record infrastructure investment is creating opportunities for young apprentices and trainees in Melbourne’s north to get involved in the state’s biggest projects. Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green visited Whittlesea Secondary College today and met with pre-apprentice VET students and their teachers to announce the $600 million Mernda Rail Extension Project had identified the initial 50 plus roles for apprentices, trainees and cadets. The number of apprentices and trainees on the Mernda project is set to grow further as it moves into construction.  For more information:  merndarail@levelcrossings.vic.gov.au or 1800 762 667. The Labor Government’s Major Projects Skills Guarantee (MPSG) requires contractors on big infrastructure projects to ensure at least 10 per cent of work hours are delivered by apprentices, trainees and engineering cadets. The apprentices and trainees will gain experience in carpentry, civil construction, business administration, rail infrastructure and associated disciplines. The engineering cadets will represent the various engineering disciplines and provide support in the areas of engineering, occupational health and safety, communications and stakeholder relations, business, finance, design, environmental and human resources. The Mernda Rail Extension Project will deliver eight kilometres of new rail line and three state-of-the-art stations at Marymede, Mernda and Hawkstowe. It will feature up to 2,000 car parking spaces, bicycle storage and bus facilities as well as three rail bridges and two road underpasses, meaning no level crossings. The project is set to create about 3,000 jobs – including 1,200 jobs during construction and a further 1,800 jobs in local businesses and industries supporting the project. To mobilise the workforce at the Mernda Rail Extension, the project team has been working with retrenched workers from the automotive and energy industries to help with the re-skilling process. The project also has an Aboriginal employment target of 2.5 % of work hours. Quotes attributable to Member for Yan Yean Danielle Green “This project is not only delivering a crucial connection in a fast growing area of the city’s north, but it’s also creating opportunities for young people to get skills for life.” “Our investments in infrastructure are helping the next generation of skilled tradespeople and engineers who will shape the future of our state.”

Nexus Primary Health Upgrade To Treat Patients Sooner

The catchment of Nexus Primary Health includes the local government areas of Mitchell, Murrindindi and Strathbogie. Operating from sites in Wallan, Broadford and Seymour, Nexus Primary Health also delivers services and programs through outreach in clients’ homes and co-location with other organisations.
