BROOK NEWS JOINS GO-CARD NETWORK

Wed 27 Apr 2016

Completing go-card transactions is now more convenient for local residents as Brook News joins the go-card retail network.

Tim Mander, Member for Everton said a ticketing machine was installed into the retail store two weeks ago.

“This is great for the community as the stores will now be able to sell new go-cards, top-up existing cards, or change card expiry dates in-store,” Mr Mander said.

“It is pleasing to see go-card top-up facilities in the shopping centre after I identified the area as requiring better access to these services.

Store Proprietor Stephen Bird said with 16 schools in close proximity to Brookside Shopping Centre to our store, we are very pleased to finally have this machine.

“It makes it much quicker and easier to handle all customer enquiries about go-cards,” he said.

Retail and/or top-up locations include 7-Eleven and selected independent retailers, QR station ticket offices and fare machines and at busway station fare machines.

For further information on location of go card retailers visit translink.com.au or phone the TransLink Contact centre (24/7) on 13 12 30.

White Ribbon Walk for Community

Wed 18 Nov 2015

 

On the 25th of November 2015, White Ribbon Day, I was very proud to be the co-host of the inaugural walk for resilience in my community.

I co-hosted that with a group called the Nest, which is located in my community. The Nest is an incredibly innovative and creative venture that I am really excited about and I know the minister is, as well. 

I was incredibly encouraged by our inaugural walk . We had a moment of silence to remember those women, in particular, who are the victims of domestic violence and have suffered greatly through it and, of course, the many who unfortunately have lost their lives.
