Fire Awareness Survey; Otway Film Society Survey; Pick My Project Update; Free Legal Advice
We have 2 surveys on the go at the moment as we gather information for our big community projects. Below are the QR codes which link to each survey. You can access the surveys by downloading the QR reader app to your tablet or smartphone and scanning the code. You will then be directed to the appropriate webpage to complete the survey. We will also be producing hard copies for distribution in the next few weeks.
Fire Awareness Survey
The information you supply will be used to develop a Community Response Plan, based on local issues. This plan will work to ensure we are better prepared in the case of a bushfire in our area. By completing this survey, and a follow-up one later in the year, you will be in the running to win a fire ready pack valued at over $200 that includes a rechargeable multi-band radio with torch and hand crank in case of emergency, a 15,000mAh power bank to charge your devices when the power is out and a level 3 soft first aid kit.

Otway Film Society Survey
We are looking for your input as we establish the Otway Film Society. Screenings will happen from the newly refurbished Apollo Bay Seniors Hall with its new multi-media equipment, laser projector and 3.4m wide screen. The Otway Film Society will focus on screenings and events for the community that sit outside the mainstream cinema experience.

Pick my Project Update
This week the multimedia equipment at the Apollo Bay Seniors Hall was finally installed. Thanks so much to Matty Orchard from the Apollo Bay P-12 College for his help in coordinating the right equipment for our needs - laser projector, retractable screen, speakers, lights, touch pad controller, lectern and microphones. Students from his VCAL music class will be helping with the installation of the sound bats and the recording of video instructions for the equipment.
This project is due to Pick My Project funding received last year and support from the Colac Otway Shire Council. Next in line for installation is the solar system with battery back-up and this aspect of the project will be happening this month.
