    Advance Morwell, together with retailer groups from Moe, Traralgon and the LCBTA, are excited to be launching a Shop Local Gift Card Program, which will use the EFTPOS network as the transaction processing platform.
    This Program was rolled out successfully in November 2014 by the Traralgon Chamber of Commerce & Industry as a pilot project, and as a result of it’s success, we’re now expanding it across the entire Latrobe City
    Using a ‘closed loop system” the program enables participating businesses to accept ‘Shop Latrobe City Gift Cards’ in their stores, in the same way that you would accept an eftpos or credit card.
    We invite all businesses throughout the Latrobe City to participate in the Gift Card Program, as it’s success will be dependant upon providing gift card recipients with diversity to shop at as many stores as possible throughout the region. So far over 40 businesses are participating in the program, with many more showing interest in joining.
    The Shop Latrobe City Gift Card Program will encourage consumers to shop locally, and enables small businesses to compete with the larger stores and shopping centres, who all offer their own Gift Cards. 
    Business & Corporate level members can join the program from the Events tab on the website.

    Advance Morwell Chairman John Guy OAM, said today that the news of job losses at the ASIC Traralgon Office is yet another blow to employment in the Latrobe Valley.

    As a former Mayor of Morwell, Mr Guy said that he could well remember the effort that went into the establishment of the ASIC Office in Traralgon. The three councils of the time in Moe Morwell and Traralgon were warned that if they did not work together, they would not be able to attract this facility. It was our working together that finally convinced the Federal Government to build the facility in the Latrobe Valley.

    For weeks now we have been hearing rumours of the privatising of this business and assurances from politicians that this would not lead to job losses.

    With wall to wall national and liberal party politicians in Gippsland, we need them to actively support the retention of regional jobs and ensure that ASIC remains in Traralgon providing much needed work for our community.

    “It is important for us all to work together and lobby government to not only retain our existing jobs, but also to create new employment opportunities to both address our region’s escalating unemployment issues and diversify our  narrow employment base.”  Added Mr Guy.

    Advance Morwell welcomes reopening of the Hazelwood Mine Fire Enquiry and Health Study funding but is critical of the lack of Government response to other issues facing Morwell

    Advance Morwell Chairman John Guy OAM has welcomed the recent announcement by Premier Daniel Andrews on the reopening of The Hazelwood Mine Fire Enquiry and funding for the Mine Fire Health Study.

    Mr Guy said “This is great news for Morwell, but the Government must give adequate notice to the community about the hearing dates to ensure everyone has the opportunity to contribute.”

    “The re-opening of the enquiry is an opportunity to bolster regulations as they apply to mining in Victoria and to ascertain the veracity of claims that the mine fire contributed to the local deaths.” 

    According to Mr Guy, Advance Morwell is extremely concerned and disappointed that other significant issues facing Morwell are being ignored by the State Government.

    “Letters to Government Ministers on issues such as the construction of the Morwell Primary School,  the future restoration of Power Station sites and Local Government governance are not even being acknowledged”  Said Mr Guy.

    “Morwell has suffered greatly over recent years and we need certainty that as industry transitions, we will not be left with disused industrial sites and poorly rehabilitated infrastructure” 

    “The former and long disused SECV interconnecting railway bridge at Morwell’s Western entrance is a stark and ongoing reminder of the visible scars that will be left behind if Government does not effectively regulate and control the deindustrialisation of this region.”  He added.

    Latrobe City councillors, Advance Morwell chair John Guy, Department of Planning and Community Development's Laurie Paton and Member for Morwell Russell Northe welcomed the improvements to the area around Morwell's skate park.

    "The existing Commercial Road roundabout is too narrow, with trucks and cars often clipping the brick retaining wall, which causes damage to the brickwork, creating a poor impression of the town for those entering Morwell from the east," Mr Northe said.

    "This project will fund an expansion of the roundabout to minimise damage from vehicles and reduce ongoing maintenance, with the roundabout garden to be enhanced with new plantings."
