Did someone say – go!

Twenty eight days of donuts and now I can fly – well at least with caution.

Victoria you have done it. Twenty eight days of no new infections leads the experts to say that we have effectively eliminated Covid in the community. The sense of relief is overwhelming. We still have to be cautious, particularly as borders open, but we know what to do now and none of us want another lockdown. It may be small steps for awhile, however they are steps that are going forward. Enjoy Victoria – you deserve it.

Ballarat is pretty good decorating the CBD for Christmas each year and if we ever needed to see Santa and his reindeer, this is the year. Ballarat Council are planning to decorate the city with some standout displays starting from mid November, to be completed by 1st December. Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…
