Point Cook Action Group Announces New Working Groups

Pencils on a blank notebookThe Point Cook Action Group has recently formed Working Groups to tackle specific issues within Point Cook. The purpose of the groups is to bring together both PCAG members and non-PCAG community members to work together towards certain goals, focusing on specific issues they are passionate about.

This is a very exciting new development within the PCAG, one which we believe will help bring our members together with the community.

The groups are as follows:

We are looking for more people to become involved, no matter how big or small the contribution. If you would like to be involved or would like more information, please contact us via info@pcag.org.au

Don’t forget you can follow us on Facebook or Twitter!

We look forward to this new step in our aim to help make Point Cook the fantastic place we all want to live in!

Are You Coming To The Point Cook Action Group Meet And Greet?

Point Cook Action Group (PCAG) is having a “Meet and Greet”night at Gypsy Road on the evening of Friday 23 March 2012.

This is your opportunity to meet members of the PCAG in a social setting to informally discuss local issues. This event is open to anyone that wishes to come and is a great opportunity for members of the community to get together to build on the fantastic community spirit that Point Cook already possesses.

There will be a free drink provided for everyone that chooses to join PCAG on the night.

PCAG is pleased to see that one of its own members, Nick Michaelides, has taken it upon himself to promote this event by telling his story as to why the work of PCAG is important to him as a resident of Point Cook. Nick has created a Flyer promoting this event and is placing it on the windscreens of cars parked at the over-crowded Laverton station.

Feel free to make copies of Nick’s story Flyer promoting this event and hand it out to any local residents you feel may be interested in attending this event and/or making Point Cook a better suburb.

Please RSVP to this event so we have a rough indication of numbers.

Clean Up Australia Day 2012 – Point Cook Locations

Recently, there has been a lot of “noise” from many Point Cook residents and media attention regarding the amount of rubbish that is being dumped on nature strips, vacant blocks of land, building sites and as part of our beautiful waterways and open park lands.  Well, why not group together and do something productive about it?

Clean Up Australia Day is on again Sunday 4 March 2012.  This event provides the perfect opportunity for the community to pull together and re-establish some neighborhood pride in our beloved Point Cook, whilst at the same time meeting some other residents.  It is great to see that already three of our residents have taken it upon themselves to setup Clean Up Australia Day sites within Point Cook.  The sites and the residents that should be commended are as follows:

Persons interested in  supporting this great cause should click on one of the above links and select either “join this site” or “donate now”.  On each of the site pages you will find the details of the start and finish times, meeting points and contact details for the Site Coordinators so you can contact them directly for further details.

It is good to see that some of the sites already have volunteers, but the numbers are quite low at present and they desperately require many more Point Cook residents to volunteer if they are to make a significant improvement on the day.

The Clean Up Australia Day campaign is not restricted to the one day and public spaces, with the following events being organised as part of the campaign:

If you are unable to support any of the above campaigns, why not use this event as a good excuse to give your house or property the once over and make use of the many options available within Wyndham City for the removal of rubbish.

So what are you waiting for?  Head to the Clean Up Australia Day website and register your involvement for one of the Point Cook clean up sites. Come back here once you have registered and let us know where you will be on the day, and please share this information with other Point Cook Residents so that we can get as many people as possible involved in this great community event.
