Robinvale / Euston Tourist Information Centre
In collaboration with Swan Hill Rural City Council, Robinvale District Health Services have been managing the Robinvale / Euston Tourist Information Centre since 2004. The information centre is a thriving part of the local business community. The information centre acts as the local Vline and Greyhound Bus ticketing agency, agent to collect Mildura and District Hospital
Fund, the provider of regional tourist information services and sells a large assortment of local produce ie; almonds, olive oils, hand crafted items.
Robinvale District Health Services (RDHS) auspice the men’s shed program as part of an integrated men’s health strategy.
Robinvale District Health Services Men’s Shed provides a supportive welcoming place for men in our community to support one another, and share in the unique mateship that is paramount to maintaining good relationships throughout the senior years.
The group meet each Thursday between 2.00pm and 5.00pm with anything up to 16 members present at any one time. As always there is an endless variety of works being undertaken for both private and community requests. During the year the
shed extension was completed providing the “Men” with a spacious area to set out their machinery and tools. Men are trained in the use of each individual machine and their competencies are recorded and filed Standard Operating Procedures are in place for each item of machinery.
The Men’s Shed is highly valued by the members and plays an instrumental part in decreasing isolation and its associated health risks. Relationships and trust built between the members of the shed and the RDHS team will hopefully help to remove barriers for senior men if at some point they are required to engage the health system for their own needs. Looking forward the men will continue to provide service as requested to individuals and community groups.
