Mackellar Care Services new bus shelter

Mackellar Care Services now has a shelter for its mini-buses.

Friends of the Nursing Home contributed $5200 towards the $7000 project and Mackellar Care staff erected the structure.

Residents and board members gathered for the ‘opening’ of the shelter on Friday.

Board president John Perkins said it was a collaborative effort, with thanks going to Friends of the Nursing Home.

“What a difference it makes for the buses,” he said.

“We couldn’t have done it without them.”


Mr Perkins also thanked the maintenance staff who worked on the shelter, including Todd Southorne, Todd Haynes, Jamie Lucas and Paul Jaeger.

“We’re so fortunate to have such talented people… working right through the whole system,” he said.

Joyce Brooks spoke on behalf of the residents and thanked all those involved.

Friends of the Nursing Home president, Maureen Tudgey, said it was the group’s last project before it dismantles.

“It’s a good project because the buses will have protection,” she said.
