SHASA has secured a $37,500 Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal grant to employ a SHASA Coordinator for 16 hours a week. It will involve working with a range of local volunteer organisations to build their capacity to be self-sustaining, resilient and successful in achieving their goals. Key skills and experience we are looking for include:
Highly effective interpersonal and communication skills, both verbal and written.
Ability to work in a team and in a collaborative environment.
Skills and ability to work with government departments to assist community groups with back end administrative and financial requirements.
Exceptional time management skills and ability to meet deadlines.
We have now been running for 4 weeks and have had a lot of fun repairing a diverse range of items. Please bring in your items. We are open every Friday 9 am – 12 noon, Red Door Hall, St John Church, Page St Moruya.
SHASA continues to support and work with our excellent business partner Micro Energy Systems Australia (MESA). We appreciate and recognise their personal commitment to the community and SHASA's long term vision for sustainability in our Shire. They assist SHASA in many ways in addition to the SHASA/MESA Solar Bulk Buy which has now installed around 250 individual systems providing more than 1300kW of solar power. Community Installs
The SHASA/MESA program to install solar on community facilities at no cost to those organisations continues. So far MESA has installed systems on the Bateman's Bay Surf Club, Rally for Recovery Tomakin, the Surfbeach CWA, the Bodalla Local Aboriginal Lands Council, the Red Door Hall and Anglican Parish Office Moruya, Monty's Anglican Parish Narooma.
