Interview: one family’s journey with a dementia diagnosis
Next week is Dementia Action Week and provides an important time to learn more about those in our community who live with this diagnosis every day. We speak to local Donvale resident Brian Quirk who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, a form of dementia, and his wife Mary about what it is like to live with dementia.
From 22 September to 24 October 2020, Council will enter the election period, where we are legally required not to publish anything that may be seen to influence the outcome of the local government elections on 24 October. Due to this, our next edition of Manningham Matters will be published on Wednesday 28 October.
The sounds of excited playing were heard across Manningham this week as our playgrounds and outdoor gyms reopened to children, families and exercisers of all ages. Find out about some parks we have recently upgraded which you can now enjoy.
Our upcoming Council meeting on Tuesday 13 October 2020, 7.00pm will be a virtual meeting. The Mayor and Councillors will access the meeting via video and audio from their homes. You will be able to watch the meeting live on our Facebook page – although you don’t need a Facebook account to see it. We encourage questions for Council to be provided via email and received by 5.00pm on the Monday before the meeting.
