Don Elgin at Annual Town Forum

Thursday 20 November saw World Champion Paralympian Don Elgin spend a day in Mooroolbark to participate in the fourth Annual Town Forum hosted by the Mooroolbark Umbrella Group.

Don's presentation was inspiring, funny and totally engaging, as he drew from his life experience - rising above the obstacles that being born with a disability might have presented.

In the morning in an intimate setting he worked with a group of 40 local secondary students. In the afternoon a large group of 230 primary school students emjoyed his presentation at the Mooroolbark Community Centre, and again in the evening, Don shared his story at the Forum, including assisting with the awarding of the 2014 Quiet Achiever medallions which were presented to long-time contributors to our community. Arline Myers of the Mooroolbark Theatre Group, Marion Stott of the Mooroolbark History Group, Peter Giddings from the Mooroolbark Lions Club and Haemish Gaines - Kids Hope Aus mentor at Manchester Primary School were honoured. Deputy Mayor Cr. Maria McCarthy opened the evening Forum and also assisted in presenting the awards.

Changes to our Station

Please note some important information about redevelopment works at Mooroolbark Station received from the Project Team:

We are writing to inform you of upcoming works associated with the Mooroolbark Community Hub Project.

Construction to begin from Monday 18 August 2014
The $2.4 million Mooroolbark Community Hub project will improve safety and accessibility of Mooroolbark Station.

The project will improve the station precinct by:

  • providing additional CCTV cameras and improving lighting
  • upgrading ramps, footpaths, signage and the car park (including new disabled parking spots and drop off facilities)
  • constructing a new café and canopy over the station entrance
  • upgrading and improving landscaping in the station forecourt area.


Works to revitalise Mooroolbark Station will begin on Monday 18 August 2014 and continue until early 2015.

Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum during construction. Works will take place on weekdays and some Saturdays between 7am and 6pm. Residents and businesses will be notified in advance if works are expected to occur outside these hours.

The project is being delivered by Metro Trains Melbourne on behalf of Public Transport Victoria.

Temporary changes to station access via Brice Avenue
During construction, there will be changes to the way you access the station via Brice Avenue.

Access to the station building and platforms via Brice Avenue will be maintained at all times, but some footpaths and parts of the station forecourt will be temporarily closed.

Please follow directional signage to the station entrance and allow extra time to access the station.

Temporary closure of parking spaces off Brice Avenue
From Monday 18 August 2014, a site compound will be set up in the car park off Brice Avenue. Up to seven of the one-hour car parking spaces will be temporarily closed during construction.

As you have provided input to the project team during the design for Mooroolbark Station, we will provide regular updates throughout construction of the project via email. If you do not wish to receive future updates on construction works, please reply to this email with "unsubscribe" in the subject heading.

Thanks again to Mooroolbark Christian Fellowship for organising the day - and for the very efficient SYR for such a successful partnership!
