New progress group the Tumut Community Association held their first Annual General Meeting on Thursday evening, where they discussed their priorities for the coming year.
They also voted in their executive committee for the coming year, with the position holders being: President Geoff Pritchard, Vice-President Luke Peacock, Treasurer Allan Kelly, Secretary Tanya Schumer, and Committee Members John Larter, Christine Webb, and Col Locke.
The group decided that the core issues for them to focus on, for the time being, were: to lobby for investment in the Hume and Hovell walking track, seek involvement in the ‘Visy Cares’ project, and to lobby for better health services for Tumut and the surrounding region that it services.
They also discussed the possibility of organising a hydrotherapy pool for medicinal use in Tumut, and the potential benefits for Tumut of the Snowy Hydro expansion.
They lastly resolved to continue efforts by many in the town for disabled access, toilets, and free access for kids at the Tumut Swimming Pool.
The Tumut Community Association is the brainchild of former Mayors Geoff Pritchard and John Larter, who formed the group after the Tumut-Tumbarumba council amalgamations.
It costs $5 to join as a member and anyone is welcome to come along to meetings. More information can be found on the Tumut Community Association Facebook page.
