Sunday 22/5/16 Inglewood Sports Centre
A truly magnificent attendance in fantastic weather saw a tribute to Dr Max and Annie Higgs at a community BBQ today. Together with sons Harry and Charlie, (together with good wishes from Jack who is living in New York), they mingled with the large crowd estimated at 270+. "Thank you and well wishes" were plentiful , as was the array of salads and cakes and sweets brought along by the community to share. Speeches by Stewart Luckman, Helen Reimers and Harry Higgs expressed the feelings of the community for the magnificent service of some 31 years to our community, not only as the local doctor but also Council service, inaugural chairman of the community bank, sporting groups and support to many in many ways. There were tears of joy and wonderful perosnal thanks expressed.
A plaque was presented to Max and Annie, who responded well with kind and generous thoughts. They have enjoyed the hard work and success of this chapter of their life and are looking forward to the next chapter. Max also left us with some poetry which summed up the value of folks and service. They will enjoy some holidays and and then head off to various exciting destinations and work in other areas. Every one wishes them well.
Thanks to Stewart Luckman and Graham Bender for initiating and arranging the day, the Lions Club of Inglewood for the BBQ and catering and all who contributed to the success of the day and the cleaning up. Many hands did a great job.

27/4/16 Community Meeting. Loddon Shire a/g CEO Marg Allan along with EPA and ISS, briefed the community on the status of current works. The major hole at the rollover site is now being filled with like material that has been tested as suitable. Some 2000-3000
tonnes will be required to restore that area over the next week. The polluted soil and bricks in the section of the large drain crossing the to the golf course will now commence being removed. The additional section on the western end near Heales St. will also be commenced as part of that work. As it is polluted down to some 2.5 m depth, this will take some time. Council is designing the new drain works for restoration to like capacity, which will be reviewed with the insurance providers prior to construction commencement. A concrete culvert will most likely result for the eastern section, and the communities preference for the western Heales St section is restoration of brickworks. Many questions and discussion followed. The shire will advise another community update in the coming weeks.
14/4/16 Community Meeting. Loddon Shire will hold a community meeting #4 on Wednesdy 27th April, 6:00pm at the Senior Citizens Centre, Grant St, Inglewood. An update on the cleanup work by EPA and Loddon Shire will be provided. All invited.
6/4/2016 Major Truck Rollover Calder Hwy in Inglewood.
The major incident was cleared and the highway opened with one lane, by around 6:00pm hours on the Thursday 7th. Power had been returned after a massive effort by PowerCor teams. Now the cleanup commences on the fuel, sodden soil and drains, cleaning up the environmental damage. This will continue for many days and perhaps weeks.
Further information can be located at:
The Inglewood community would like to thank all the emergency teams and relief crews that came from everywhere to assist during and after the emergency. The driver being treated at hospital for what we were told was only minor injuries and no one else was injured, so we are grateful for that. It could have been much worse.
A big thank you also to all the townsfolk, businesses and support workers who assisted the community during the event.

Marketing Inglewood ...the challenge
A routine part of IDTC's role is marketing the town and facilities. "Put yourself in the picture" is a new theme we have created and have supplied postcards at various outlets to highlight the activities in our area. We also have new bumper stickers available highlighting our website. These are available from Inglewood Community Neighbourhood House and Fusspots initially for a small fee, directing attention to our website. Rather than producing flyers that get out of date quickly, our aim is now on an up-to-date website. If you see an update required, send us a message. thanks
Great Vic Bike Ride.
Phew! The riders have come and gone and reports were they really enjoyed out town.
A short break until Saturday....Inglewood Alive!

“SIX LITTLE STORIES”
Once all villagers decided to pray for rain.
On the day of prayer all the people gathered,
but only one boy came with an umbrella.
When you throw babies in the air,
they laugh because they know you will catch them.
Every night we go to bed
without any assurance of being alive the next morning,
but still we set the alarms to wake up.
We plan big things for tomorrow
in spite of zero knowledge of the future.
We see the world suffering,
but still we get married and have children.
On an old man's shirt was written a sentence
'I am not 80 years old
I am sweet 16 with 64 years of experience.'
Have a happy day and live your life like the six stories
