Extra Time Newsletter
At the beginning of the first stage of community restrictions, the Latrobe Health Assembly embarked on an ambitious task of producing a daily newsletter called the Extra Time Newsletter. The newsletter provided readers with key health information relating to the pandemic, support articles for people having a hard time with the isolation and fun activities for individuals, families and children to fill in the extra time they were experiencing at home.
The newsletter was issued seven days a week for 126 consecutive days. On July 23, the newsletter moved to twice-weekly edition which has continued uninterrupted right up until the final edition on December 18.
The newsletter has been shared far and wide, well beyond the borders of Latrobe Valley and is an amazing example of how small initiatives can progress and build momentum within our community.
