This issue recognises the valued contribution made over 80 years by the Angliss Hospital to the health and wellbeing of the community.

Cradled in the shelter of Corhanwarrabul, the mother mountain, seen as a woman lying on her side, the hospital nurtures the community from birth to eventual passing. The name is derived from the Woiwurrung language of the Wurundjeri people.

Names of places signify the range of people who make up this community from First Peoples to nationalities from all corners of the world seeking to live in a safe and caring setting.

The Village Fair celebrates the vital support of our CFA volunteers and the businesses and community groups which make up the Village.

Gully News acknowledges and give heartfelt thanks to the volunteers who deliver 10,000 papers door to door, business to business. Volunteers are often invisible but their volunteering keeps the spirit of the Gully alive.

Thank you also to our advertisers and sponsors whose contribution makes the paper possible. Please support them.

With summer approaching the need to watch out for each other and our precious Gully becomes all important. Be fire ready and alert those who may need nurturing just as the Hospital demonstrates day by day.

We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
