Anglicare Victoria has run a Residents’ Day at Port Fairy and at Apollo Bay in conjunction with the local Anglican Parishes. Both towns felt that they suffered from being inundated by tourists during most of the year. Each Day was attended by over 300 people and resulted in new members for many clubs, new leaders for some clubs and much networking between clubs in a manner never achieved before. The days turned out to be surprisingly successful and enjoyable for the groups involved. These events helped to strengthen the local community by helping locals to be more informed about their recreational options.
