Kyabram Community Living and Respite Services officially opened its doors last Friday with a special presentation at the Kyabram Library and Community Hub.

More than 30 people attended the opening, with Community Living and Respite chief executive Suzanna Barry there along with Campaspe Shire councillors Carol Howell, Neil Pankhurst, Rocchina D’Angelo and Mayor Ian Maddison.

Also in attendance were several respite service users as well as newly appointed Kyabram co-ordinator Cris Todd and intake and planning manager Donna McManus.

Mr Todd said he was happy to be finally underway after many months of planning.

‘‘It’s good to see the doors finally open and to have the community already supporting us,’’ he said.

‘‘Now we just have to get our faces out there and let people know our services are available in the town and they should feel free to contact us at any time.’’

Originally only based in Echuca, Community Living and Respite Services provides disability services to carers, families and the aged in the Echuca, Moama and surrounding districts.

Located in the Kyabram Library and Community Hub on Lake Rd, anyone interested in accessing CLRS services can phone intake and planning manager Donna McManus on 54802388.
