Durras Community Association news

A welcome note from Jeff Thompson, newly elected DCA President Hi everyone - Walawaani!

It’s a wonderful privilege to take on the role of President of the Durras Community Association. Big shout out to Trevor Daly who has done an amazing job over many years. He assures me he’s going to be an active Vice President seeing through some projects and showing me the ropes. Thanks again Trevor! For those of you who don’t know me (and my partner Deb) we’ve had a place in Durras for five years but we’ve finally managed to make the move to live here full time. What an amazing place! We live on Country that has been cared for and looked after for thousands of years then saved from further development, protected, and then spared from catastrophe in recent years. Coming out of that trauma the Durras community has been particularly active and there’s been some amazing things achieved by the DCA in recent years. I look forward to being part of that and continuing the work being done in our local community to make Durras safe, fun, inclusive, and welcoming while we continue to care for and protect what we hold dear about this place. The next meeting is on Saturday the 22nd of April - I hope to see you there! Durras Community Association AGM The DCA AGM was held on Sunday the 12th of February.
