Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

Keeping the Hazelwood South Halls exterior maintained.

Hazelwood [South] Hall will always need to be maintained. Maintenance costs both in time and cash. So every little bit of maintenance – both inside and out- has always been aprechiated over the years. So to are the donations, gifts and fundraising done with the Hazelwood [South] Hall in mind.

Raising the publics awareness of this Hall is a major concern. The public need to be aware of where this hall is, the significance of the Hall to the Hazelwood, Yinnar and Morwell Community, (now also the Churchill Community), and of course how to join into the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guide District membership enabling them the use of the Hazelwood [South] Hall as per lease agreement.

Orginially Hazelwood [South] Hall was a Community Hall. There was a Committee of Management that had all the users of the premises on board. Over the fifty plus years people have moved on from the area or interest has wained in what they have organised. During the 1990’s the lease was altered by the then District Leaader.

General maintenance was completed with regular ‘days’ allotted. In todays society family members have difficulty allotting more time to external service unless there is something in it for them. This is not being selfish in out look, just reasonable for todays ‘singular family Unit’ life style.

Combating this should members of the Girl Guides wish to utilize the Hazelwood [South] Hall they must follow the District Guide lines relating to the lease and cleanliness agreements. There are obvious sights that no one need see.

During the late 2000’s a General Risk Analysis was created for the Hazelwood [South] Hall.

The Latrobe City Council and the Department of Sustainability would like yearly building reports submitted.

Why change the lease arrangements?

No one actually knows why the lease agreement was changed from a management committee to having the lease only under the Hazelwood Girl Guide District. Now known as the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guide District on the lease.

It is remembered that the Department of Sustainability and Environment was just one Government Department that had big changes occurring during this time.

Hazelwood Girl Guide Support Group

Before January 2009 this group was disbanded.  The incoming Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guide District leader preferred to work with a different method of support.  Having a District team meant that the members were not perceived as only friends and family of the current Girl Guides. The scope of membership being a larger base.  Monitored by size through the Melbourne office of Girl Guides.
 Girl Guide Australia Guide lines any president or treasurer also requires a police check.  No one wanted a police check … nor these positions. Under these conditions no Support Group could operate.
