Hi, I always manage to bring something from an article in the magazine into the conversation with the customers no matter what I am selling in the Showroom. … Summer Edition No.158, I do think it’s one of the best (or maybe I was just missing it so much – lol).
I can look forward to a read with a cup of tea tonight. Looking forward to the next edition and happy to promote.

Cheers, Karen DécoR Stone, Highbury Road, Burwood – via email Dec 2020

I’ve got quite a bit of work from the Burwood Bulletin over the years and I think I’ve had my little ad running for about 15 years and had lots of jobs and met some lovely people. My main motivation is to give the BB some extra much needed income to help save this great newsletter/magazine.

Where can one find copies of this wondrous magazine?

I … would like to know where I can regularly obtain a copy of this publication. Is there a list available of the community centres or other venues that are part of the distribution chain? I am happy to chase it, but have no idea where to start.

Thank you. Judy, via email 2 Nov 2020


‘We need more wheels’ to deliver meals

With more older Australians needing the support of Meals on Wheels, the service is seeking extra delivery drivers to keep its wheels turning.

Ahead of National Meals on Wheels Day on 25 August, the service has made an urgent call for more wheels to assist its almost 600 services across the country.

“Meals on Wheels delivery drivers are required right across Australia,” said national president Sharyn Broer. “We are encouraging anyone who has a few hours to spare each week to reach out to their local Meals on Wheels service and offer their support by way of volunteering.

“We have noticed a particular shortage in delivery drivers, who often use their own vehicles, so Meals on Wheels needs more wheels!”

More than 45 000 volunteers play an integral role within the organisation. Meals on Wheels supports the health and wellbeing of more than 200 000 older and vulnerable people within the community, and has been doing so for more than 60 years.
