Message from our Mayor

Earlier this month I was invited to speak with Virginia Trioli on ABC Radio Melbourne. This was a fantastic opportunity to talk about what we're doing in Manningham and to also hear about some things that are important to our community. If you missed it, ABC Radio Melbourne have kindly allowed us to upload it here on our website. 

We had a great chat about the need for a dedicated youth mental health service in Manningham and we talked with residents about transport, traffic and planning issues.

There were also a few really important questions in the Facebook comments that Virginia and I didn’t get a chance to chat about. Thank you for sending those through. I’ve put together my responses here and look forward to more conversations with you on the radio, online and out in the beautiful suburbs of Manningham.

Flu vaccines are now available at new evening flu clinics held at the Ted Ajani Community Centre in Lower Templestowe for $25 per vaccine. Please book and pay online as walk-ins are not accepted.

Government-funded flu vaccine is also available for residents who meet certain criteria.
