The Rotary Club of Newcastle Enterprise received a grant from the NSW Community Building Partnerships grant for a purpose-built multi-function trailer. It is being built and fitted out and Mighty Max, as we have we’ve named it, will soon be ready.
We need a hand from the Tradies of Mayfield, Warabrook, Waratah, Steel River, Carrington and Islington. We are looking for help from the kind of people who don’t like to sit around in meetings and don’t like committees, who can make and build, who can get on with a job and love to see a real result.
In 1980 the Club coordinated the upgrading of a former butcher shop and building of a commercial kitchen and car-park at 154 Crebert Street and gifted it to Meals on Wheels. Another big project was the building of the Mayfield Senior Citizens Centre next to the Mayfield library, officially opened by Hazel Hawke.
One trailer can’t do these things but the kind of people who made it happen then can make it happen now. An idea put into action brings change. An idea which makes our community better, put into action, brings change which lasts.
We already have a small trailer (Mini Max) for graffiti removal. A dedicated team is keeping Mayfield looking good by water-blasting and painting over graffiti scribble. With the two Max’s together and more hands we can really make a difference in our community.
Talk to us. You don’t have to become a Rotarian to be involved. As a Friend of Rotary volunteer signed on to a Rotary project you are covered by our insurance. You don’t have to come to our meetings, though you might want to occasionally. We are all volunteers and we do what we do because we enjoy it. You might too.
