Due to the current weather conditions and resulting flooding events that are occurring in central and northern Victoria, the Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail’s Annual General Meeting scheduled for the 19th October has been postponed. With a number of highways and other local road closed due to flood water inundation and associated damage, such is making travelling in these areas very difficult.
The group’s AGM and General Meeting have now been rescheduled to 16th November 2022, and will be held at the Bendigo Cycling Clubrooms, Tom Flood Centre (off Water St), Bendigo, 6.30pm. The General Meeting will follow the AGM at 7.30pm. As a coincidence, the meeting location’s name and the address have no connection with the current emergency event!
The President Colin Scott extends his thoughts and that of members to those residents and businesses that are currently, or may be in the coming days, being impacted by flood waters and related isolation. Emergency evacuation orders have been made to a number of communities, and residents have been asked to respond to such.
With the expected passing of the emergency and opening of certain roads in the coming weeks, the group’s members and the general public are invited to the rescheduled AGM and GM on the 16th November, with meeting agendas and reports having already been distributed or will be made available at the meeting.
