CBD locals can still engage with their neighbours during COVID-19 restrictions, with Residents 3000 moving its regular interactions online.
Residents3000 vice-president Susan Saunders said that while its monthly meetings at the Kelvin Club would be postponed until further notice, residents should still engage online through the group’s Facebook and Instagram platforms.
“We are still sending out emails to our members and website subscribers,” she said. “As a committee, we are meeting via Zoom weekly. We have also upgraded our website.”
EastEnders group president Stan Capp also encouraged locals to stay connected via the Residents 3000 Facebook page, with regular updates provided on issues such as construction hours, essential services, homelessness and rubbish collection.
Mr Capp, who is a committee member of Residents 3000, had already suspended the EastEnders group’s monthly coffee meetings due to COVID-19, but is in regular communication with members via email.
He told members last month that he and other resident group presidents, including Residents 3000 president Rafa Camillo, had held video meetings with State Member for Melbourne Ellen Sandell and Lord Mayor of Melbourne Sally Capp and updates from these meetings would be provided via Facebook •
