Eastern FM, available at frequency 98.1, is a community radio station that covers Melbourne’s outer east. On the first Friday of each month Eastern FM has a radio segment with Maroondah City Council to publicise upcoming events or issues.
Eastern FM’s studio is based at Wyreena Community in Hull Road, Croydon.
This morning I, along with Maroondah’s MetroAccess worker Katie Goodrope, was invited by Eastern FM to discuss the upcoming Maroondah Mobility Expo. At this stage we have already received 150 pre-registrations for the expo and an overwhelming response from suppliers meaning that eastern Melbourne’s first ever mobility expo should provide a wealth of information for all involved. Information session on topics such as using public transport safely, road safety and scooter etiquette will be covered throughout the day.
Also discussed was the booklet, ‘Maintaining Your Mobility in Maroondah’. This booklet, which will be launched at the Expo, contains advice on using scooters, wheelchairs and other mobility aids within Maroondah and includes a section on etiquette to ensure that everyone is able to travel in Maroondah safely and confidently.
The Maroondah Mobility Expo will be held on Tuesday the 5th of December at Maroondah Federation Estate, Greenwood Avenue, Ringwood.
