Time spent in respite care can range from a single night to a few weeks. It provides a welcome break and peace of mind knowing that your loved one will receive round-the-clock care from friendly, experienced care teams.

May Kitchen knows how important it is to provide carers with a break. After visiting her husband Stuart in respite care at a Ryman village, she was tempted to move in herself! “If it was me, I think I would enjoy it because it’s just so beautiful and the food is good.”

Ryman villages provide warm and welcoming communities. Where residents can enjoy activities and outings while forming friendships along the way.

Just wondering if anybody may have seen a collision between a car and my parked car (black Subaru) on redwood ave near the school today between 7am and 4:30pm?

They have left a note, but it goes straight to a generic voicemail. They have also left a name which I won’t post publicly.… View more
Hi there,

Just wondering if anybody may have seen a collision between a car and my parked car (black Subaru) on redwood ave near the school today between 7am and 4:30pm?

They have left a note, but it goes straight to a generic voicemail. They have also left a name which I won’t post publicly.

The insurance company will need a rego or description if the number doesn’t work.

Thanks neighbours!

The wheel was straight before it was hit 🤷‍♂️

The western end of Dixon St (from the intersection at Willis St) until MacDonald Cres is closed until further notice. Access to MacDonald Cres via The Terrace is still available.

As part of our works to repair the wastewater leak, our team came across a collapsed section of pipe which requires urgent repair. This resulted in immediate road closure, meaning we couldn't advise the public earlier.

As a part of this urgent work, a pumping truck will be on site. We will aim to keep noise down, however we expect the truck to run until 7pm.

We are working with affected residents and businesses to keep them updated on any increased noise.

We will provide an update tomorrow on the status of the road closure.
