Another year over

10 Dec 2015

Another year over Image

As we approach another silly season, it’s always important to reflect on the year that’s been.

2015 was undoubtedly a year where our community continued to mature and, as always, development continued to occur!

Through our coverage of news and events in the area, it appears that a noticeable change in the dynamic of our community seems to be gathering momentum.

This change has certainly been facilitated by a progressive City of Melbourne through vital initiatives such as the City Rd and Southbank Boulevard master plans, and the ongoing services offered by Boyd.  

There is no greater indication of this maturity than the growth of the Southbank Residents Association which, through the hard work of its president, has even established a first-ever owners’ corporation network.

The important role that the Yarra River Business Association plays in advocating for vital changes to our suburb can’t go unnoticed, nor the ongoing work of Southbank Rotary.

And the exciting establishment of a Southbank Lions Club and a Men’s Shed at Federation Square I’m sure will only bring greater things for our community.

Given the high-rise nature of living in Southbank, it is always great to see the community band together and neighbours talking to each other and there has certainly been plenty of that this year.

As always, I hope you have enjoyed reading the newspaper and that it has played a role in helping to facilitate that sense of community.

It is only due to the ongoing support of our advertisers, columnists, and of course you, the readers, who make this community asset a reality. Thank you to all.

Here’s to a happy and safe festive season. I look forward to bringing you more news in 2016.
