Shire Visit to Global Care Group's Balladong Country Estate in York

As many of you may know, the Shire is partnering with Global Care Group, an independent, not-for-profit aged care service provider with the establishment of ‘Thungarra Seaside Estate’ an “ageing in place” development opposite the Dongara Health Centre in Blenheim Road.

As part of this partnership, on Monday, 18 June 2012, I had the pleasure of joining with 8 Irwin Shire residents on a day trip to Global Care Group’s Balladong Country Estate in York so we could see for ourselves Global Care’s development and construction of their independent living units (ILU’s) and residential aged care facility.

I must say that I, along with the other trip participants, were very impressed with the quality of the development, spacious feel of the ILU’s and the amenities available for residents of both the residential aged care centre and the independent living units which augurs well for the development of the ‘Thungarra Seaside Estate’. Thank you Global Care for arranging the visit, providing us with a great lunch and tour and for more information please contact John Dear of Global Care Group on 0488 445 211.

Rubbish Collection Information

Veolia, the Shire’s rubbish collection contractor, has advised that they are now arriving in the Shire earlier for pickup of rubbish bins. Therefore, residents are requested to please place their bin out on the roadside the night before or, at the latest, prior to 6am on the morning of pickup day. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.
