Our Regular Activities
MADCAP – Marsh And District Community Action Plan
The Deans Marsh and District Community Action Plan
The Deans Marsh Cottage has been successful in gaining funding for our community to create a community generated action plan.
We are delighted to confirm that Peter Kenyon from The Bank of Ideas has been appointed to work with us over the next few months to facilitate the development of the plan. In 2019 Peter was awarded an Order of Australia Medal for his international and national community development initiatives.
There will be a range of opportunities and activities both formal and informal for you to be involved. Regular updates will feature on the Deans Marsh Community Cottage website, Cottage Facebook page, The Cottage fortnightly email update and printed information.
Find out more in the The Croaker in early October.
We are trained to ask:
“What’s wrong and how we fix it?”
Instead start by asking:
“What works, what have we got, what’s possible and who cares”
