Sigiri is a village of about 1,500 people at stands 45 minutes’ drive from Mt Hagen, PNG. The village has no running water, and the women and children must walk over one kilometre and return with water in buckets, there are several structures in the village with metal roofs but no guttering or means to capture water. The project was initiated through Rotary Australia World Community Service to assist with funding of the project. Funds were received from Rotary Club of Mount Martha, Rotary Club of Warrnambool, Dragon Boats Australia, and individual donations.
 
The Rotary Club of Mount Martha has partnered with the seven Rotary Clubs of the Mornington Peninsula and The Mornington Peninsula Shire to develop community infrastructure and amenity along existing paths that form the Bay Trail.
Our club is focused on developing the Harrap Creek Trail from the Briars to Craigie Road. This will mean that when the already funded Mornington to Moorooduc trail is complete, recreational cyclists will be able ride from existing city trails to the mouth of the Balcombe Creek in Mount Martha.
The Harrap Creek Trail is directly connected to the Briars and Balcombe Creek boardwalk which was constructed by the Rotary Club of Mount Martha in the 1990’s and 2000’s.
The existing Harrap Creek trail has no community infrastructure other than some graded gravel paths. The club’s vision is to see vibrant community infrastructure and amenity along the Harrap Creek trail and parkland that engages the community to use and care for the land.
 
Welcome to the 2021-2022 Board members - Peter Rawlings, Roger Skipsey, Pat Morton, Valerie Lyons, Lara Barrett, President Carole Allen, Bill Branthwaite, Christine Williams, Gordon Morriss, Steve Daly. We are looking forward to another year of action serving our community.
