With the ongoing pandemic emergency, there has never been a more important time to reach out to our friends and family.
Mayor Libro Mustica said there was little doubt we all knew someone who was feeling the challenges served up by COVID-19.
“For some of us, it is juggling the needs of home schooling while trying to look professional on yet another video-conference,” Cr Mustica said.
“For others, it might be the challenges of running a business or trying to access health care across state borders, tackling significant financial pressures or even trying to recover from the devastating bushfires.
“Lastly, although by no means least, are those who are deeply affected by the loneliness of social isolation or the loss of a loved one.”
Cr Mustica said Council couldn’t solve all those problems but it could make a small difference by helping make it easier to keep in touch with your family and friends.
“Reconnecting with our family and friends is so important and sometimes it’s the little things that make the biggest difference,” he said.
“By simply sending a message of support we can let our friends and family know that we care and that we look forward to being reunited when the restrictions are eased and we can spend time together again.
“To help keep in touch we have created a series of locally inspired vPostcards and they are ready and waiting for you to add your own personal message.
“A great idea is to invite them to visit when the time is right.
