30th July was our monthly support group meeting attended by some 22+ people we were very lucky to have as our speaker Emeritus Professor Rae Mackay Mine Commissioner and his engagement officer Mary Mathew – Rae explained to those gathered about how over the next 50 years the mines in the Latrobe Valley may be rehabilitated and all those issues that go with rehabilitating mines. It was a very interesting session and Rae was very happy to answer the numerous questions from our members. We thank him and Mary for coming and presenting a forward looking future for Latrobe Valley. Pictured here are some of our members that were there on the day.
31st July saw ACV/GARDS rep Vicki – take Monash University Medical Students Ruxanda and Nesreen – along with their Professor Margaret Simmons out to AGL Loy Yang for a tour of the power station and mine. It was a great day and a really great opportunity for these students and their lecturer to get a close up look at how the power station works and the mine and talk up close and personal with some of the employees that work there. It is a really great way for the students to understand the industry in which some people work. It was also terrific to have the complex industry of power generation explained to them and to understand just what goes into making electricity for the state of Victoria. The students and their lecturer were very impressed and ACV/GARDS were pleased to have been able to arrange this tour for them. Thank you so much to AGL Loy Lang – to the tour guides who made themselves available and to Nigel Browne and Leonie Paulet for making this happen – we very much appreciated it.
