Region will get extra journals to carry your living story

FOLLOWING the devastating flood of January 2011, community members were given the chance to tell their story through the "Living Journey - one year on" project.

Owing to its success, in the aftermath of the 2013 Australia Day flood, Lockyer Valley Regional Council has released further "Living Story" journals throughout the region.

Deputy Mayor Tanya Milligan said the project was an opportunity for individuals and groups to share their journey of recovery.

"These journals are the perfect medium to share our recovery journey through words, drawings and pictures," Cr Milligan said.

The Living Story journals are available from council libraries where residents can contribute to the books.

Alternatively community groups can contact council to receive a book and share, encourage and have others contribute throughout their community.

The Living Story project allows residents to reflect and talk about their past and provide opportunities to share their experiences.

For more information, visit lockyervalley.qld.gov.au or contact the Community Development Team by calling 1300 005 872.

The project, an initiative of Lockyer Valley Regional Council, is funded by the Community Development and Recovery Package.
