Community Store transitions to Community Ownership

The local community store at Yarralin returned to community ownership today. From now, owned by Walangeri Ngumpinku Aboriginal Corporation, representing the Yarralin community and managed by AIG.

You can watch some of the speeches from today below.

Chair of Walangeri, Brian Pedwell talks about our community shop.

We’d like to thank everyone involved, especially Victoria Daly Regional Council and the team from AIG – Steve, Dominic, Carol, and our new Store Managers Scott and Hine, who all worked hard to make the transition happen. Not forgetting One Tree Community Services who provided the salad.

The CEO of Vic Daly, and CEO of AIG address the crowd.
