Manningham Matters - 17 July 2020

Message from our Mayor and Councillors

A lot has happened over the past two weeks and I am sure everyone is adapting to the new restrictions in place for the Melbourne metropolitan area. I was impressed by how well we, as a community, have accepted the move back to stage three (stay at home) restrictions.

While this reversal can be disheartening, it is also an important moment for all of us to continue working together as a community and keep our families and neighbourhoods healthy and safe.
