Diana Paton

Editor – Diana Paton

I’m writing this report, so this overview is a little more difficult! I enjoy being part of this great community, supporting local not-for-profits and local businesses. As with many other locals, when not working I volunteer my time to a number of groups such as Glenorie Progress Association, Galston Netball Club, Galston High School, Bendigo Community Bank and the Dural Chamber of Commerce. Being part of the community and its local groups means I learn about what’s happening and this enables me to provide support via magazines like the Dooral Roundup to help promote their causes. So, if your group needs some publicity or support, please get in touch.

We hope you enjoy the new changes our team are bringing to this magazine. We always welcome feedback- both positive and negative. Contact details for all of us are below. We would love to hear from you.
