We've missed you, and can't wait to welcome you back.

Rick Nagliati enjoy 😊
50 percent reduction on your council rates to all Monash city residents for next year will be highly appreciated, as every sector of our society is struggling to make ends meet. Thanks
Monash Oakleigh Community Support do fabulous work to support our community. In these challenging times, this work is even more important than ever

I’m incredibly excited about this upcoming change to our waste services
Did you know that almost 50% of waste sent to landfill is food matter which turns in to methane gas?
Diverting your food scraps from waste is one of the easiest ways, as an individual, you can help to tackle climate changeFood waste recycling is coming to Monash! Starting July 2020, you will be able to put food scraps in your green waste bin – this is the same bin you use for grass clippings and garden prunings.
There will be no additional cost to recycle your food waste and households with a green waste bin will receive a free kitchen caddy and welcome pack – these will be delivered to you throughout July.
Over the coming weeks we’ll provide updates, answers to commonly asked questions and tips for getting the most from this new service.

This is a great initiative. Works really well in the councils that have embraced it, and is slowly rolling out across the state. Really glad Monash is on the ball here
This is a great initiative. I’m in for sure. But mate... the streets are going to stink sooo bad! Any ideas to help people keep the stench under control? I rarely throw out leftovers but if I do, I pop it into the freezer in a bag marked with an X and put it out on bin night. Green bins are collected fortnightly. Imagine all those bins sitting in the hot sun for 2 weeks with old cheese, meat 🥴🤢 Hopefully the welcome pack will have handy tips to manage the smell and flies. Thanks for your work Stuart. Well done 👍🏼
Well it’s a better option than 4 bins 👍🏼
Does council still offer subsidized compost recycling bins
Should I start saving them now?
Today, we acknowledge National Sorry Day.
This Australia wide observance recognises those Indigenous Australians who were forcibly removed from their families and communities, known as the Stolen Generations. Acknowledgement of this day is an important step towards healing.

Please show some uplifting of THE quality of LIFE for My Indigenous Brothers and sisters. Sponsor by each council should be a ACT of 💘.Now that we are saving a lot in COVID-19 Times 🙏
I was deeply saddened this afternoon to learn of the passing of Deborah Locco.
Deb was a former principal at South Oakleigh Secondary College who was much loved within our tight knit community. Our thoughts go out to her three children who also tragically lost their father not that long ago.

Absolutely tragic and the guy needs to go to jail for a long time obviously ran because he was either over point 05 or he was on drugs
Deepest condolences to the family. Such tragic news 😥
Poor kids, now havent got any parents.
One thing we’ve missed a lot since isolation began is eating out, it’s one of life’s simple pleasures. The other day I had a local resident recommend Alor Street in Huntingdale, a relatively new Malaysian Restaurant, so we decided to get some takeaway - yuuuuuum. There wasn’t much left over! ...

Thank you for being so real through this, answering our questions & sharing your fam with ours. That's leadership.
Brought back memories of me my sis in front fire after having baths
How good is it smelling in our suburb at the moment 🤣
Mega roads? Car parks? Buses? Airport Rail? MM2?
Instead of piecemeal projects, it’s time for a comprehensive transport plan as required by the Transport Integration Act 2010

Can council assist via finishing footpath network, more bike lanes and placemaking (many of these can be done cheaply with planters and other equipment).

Good article Stuart James. We do indeed need an end to the argument on public transport. Keep political parties out of it.
Bicycles are the perfect solution for getting from home to the local transport hub. Most people are too afraid to use them because all of the available space is allocated to cars and buses. Sorry Stuart, I don’t feel feel safe riding down Atherton Road with no lane separation and cars and buses going past less than a metre away
Does that mean nil public transport and more cars....thought the green signal was given for shoebox housing close to stations so cars wouldn't b needed but someone forgot that people don't just travel along the tracks for work....so cars r needed and of course now more and more road construction is going on ....what with someone signing up to the road and belt infrastructure!
Great article stu!so much thought, planning and work to do to change our travel system from card to public transport!
Great ideas. Well written.
It's a good article. Starting with references to the fact that our country is large and our population being approximately 25 million, it's clearly understandable that our transport system lacks. However, the most relevant point would be that if all our public transport eg.extra trains, trams and buses were modernised, cleaned as efficiently as they are overseas, with updated seating and heating and punctuality, prices to be kept realistic and keep POSs.more people would choose to travel. On the issue of Buses it's not always viable for these to run outside of the common work start and finish times. However I cannot understand why after these busy times they don't park the large buses and use the smaller Wagons. Cheaper to run and then could afford to have more time slots instead of the up to an hour between runs. Cairns had these. A train of some type is a must to the airport. Why couldn't there be a mono train that runs parallel almost from the start of the airport freeway. Either up or even down given the freeway is mainly four lanes. Political parties need to work for the benefit of Voters. Parking, nearly all the parking that are within the stations are single level, when in fact they could easily be three to four storeys high. Isn't that what happened in Oakleigh ? Extra parking.These parking buildings could easily be made attractive as in Western Australia, lovely planter boxes. So many options all we now need are some politicians that are actually prepared to think outside os the square. As I said I did enjoy your article.
And how much is our traitor of a Premier Comrade Dan Andews going to borrow from China for this? seeing he has already signed up to the belt and road initiative while the public was distracted by the Pandemic. Selling our future to the Chinese Communist Party.
I really like this article. Investing in making our bus system fast and reliable is the quickest and cheapest way of improving our public transport system in the suburbs. I'd certainly leave my car at home more often if my bus rocked up more than once an hour on weekends

Yes I remember my mum taking me there for lunch on a trip to town. It was always a highlight
I remember my big sister Val Wells taking me there! I know we ate chips and ice cream, not sure what else! Then went to see Mary Poppins after, great memory 💗
I remember it well loved it
I remember the Myers one!
The “cheesecake”... 😊😊
Yes i remember it well. When my mother and I went to town we always had lunch there. I even remember what I had. It was piklets with jam and cream and mum would spread them for me and roll them up to eat. 🌯🌯
I remember this very well. As a small child growing up on a dairy farm in South Gippsland, each summer (late 1950's, early 1960's) I would come to Melbourne and spend a week's holiday with my grandparents. A couple of times, my Grandmother took me to Coles Cafeteria for a very, very special treat - a banana split. Thankyou for sharing this picture - it brought back some special memories of times long gone 💕
My husband remembers his mother taking him when he was about 4 (in the late 50s) along with her friend and her 4 year old daughter. The kids used to share a pie.
It was a great place for trainee nurses with little money to Eat Out 😀😂🥰
I do also. Nan worked at Myer across the road and it was either the very similar Myer cafe or this one. Classic good old days eh
I do, it was always a treat when shopping in town with my Mum and Nanna!
Yep, with mum, the height of sophistication
My mother worked up stairs in accounts. I would often go in and gate crash her morning teas with her fellow work friends.
Yes the best!!Whenever mum and I went into the city we would have Lucy there!!hey stu there weren’t many cafe style places in those days!!😂
Yes, had friends who worked there - used to visit them in the school holidays
I remember both the Coles and the Myers cafeterias as a kid and the Spencer street and Flinders Street station ones as well
Brings back good memories
definitely from the 60s!! I was there!
It was located where Target is now. That used to be Coles.
