Admin Manager & Part Owner - Seal-A-Fridge Northern Victoria
Man cave fridge or just a restoration – we can help

Old fridges outlast the newer ones we buy due to the technology they had 40 or 50 years ago. The components were made to last and surprisingly they have.

Restorers who love a challenge will sand back the paint on an old round top fridge and respray to get beautiful results. The fridge becomes a showpiece in a home or man cave.

Seal a Fridge Northern Vic is able to put a black seal in these fridges so that the fridge works well and just adds to the beauty of the restored item.

If you are restoring an old round top fridge or freezer, give us a call and we can put a new custom made seal in your showpiece.

Working for Victoria & Cleanaway begin cleaning blitz in Greater Shepparton

A four-week cleaning blitz will take place across Greater Shepparton commencing on Saturday 16 May and funded by the State Government’s $500M Working for Victoria initiative as part of the state-wide response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The purpose of Working for Victoria Cleaning Blitz is twofold, to provide employment opportunities for people who have lost their job due to the economic impacts of coronavirus, as well as, enabling the deep cleaning of public assets to further assist with slowing the spread of coronavirus.

The Victorian Government has engaged cleaning services throughout the state to assist with cleaning and disinfecting high foot-traffic areas such as local shopping strips, retail districts, parks and open public spaces.

The cleaning will support the work already being undertaken by Council, and provide much needed short-term employment for members of our community.

Locally, the cleaning and disinfecting will be delivered by Cleanaway Shepparton. Cleanaway will be working during daylight hours, seven days a week for the four weeks starting Saturday 16 May.

Cleanaway’s areas of focus will include traffic light buttons and poles, signs and poles, street and park benches, handrails, front door handles and the exterior of public toilets.

COVID-19 Health and Safety Videos in 8 languages

Greater Shepparton Foundation has joined with the Uniting Settlement Support team in Shepparton to record videos covering crucial COVID-19 health and safety messaging in multiple languages.

The videos are a valuable tool to communicate vital information to our CaLD communities to help them protect themselves and the wider community.

The messages in the videos are drawn directly from the Department of Health around social distancing, mental health, stopping the spread, hygiene, staying informed, and providing information for older Australians.

The videos are available in Arabic, Persian/Dari, Dinka, Hazaragi, Swahili, Punjabi and Filipino.

These videos are being shared as widely as possible via WhatsApp and Viber groups in culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, allowing everyone to play them directly on their phones without having to navigate websites.

You can visit www.greatershepparton.foundation for the link or direct to the videos at

https://www.unitingvictas.org.au/were-still-here-for-you/covid-19-information-in-other-languages/

If you want to share the Uniting link, let people know they can translate the Uniting website into their language using the Translate tool at the top of the video page.

If you need more information about this project please email Cheryl Hammer on cheryl@greatershepparton.foundation
