Positively Contributing To The Carnarvon Community

Carnarvon Community

As 2023 ends, we want to highlight some of the projects our team has worked on in November and December to positively impact the Carnarvon community.  

We’re proud of our Aspirants and team members, who show up every week to do good things for their community and their own development and wellbeing.  

Cleaning Up The Carnarvon Toy Library

The Carnarvon Toy Library’s outdoor area had become overgrown with grass thorn weeds. This is a place where children should be able to play so they asked Real Futures to assist with the clean-up.  

This was quite a big job to tackle and the guys planned out what they needed to do before getting started.  

The first step was mowing the lawn with a push mower, pulling the thorn weeds out and then spraying weedicide where they had been growing. 

After that, they did smaller beautifying tasks so the lawn was safe and ready for the children.  

As part of this work, we also talked a lot about creating a safe outdoor environment for kids to play in. The guys are taking what they learnt home to clean-up their own yards and help their family and friends do the same. 

The Toy Library were thrilled with our professional job and we were happy to make a positive impact on local families.  

Restoring the Carnarvon Heritage Precinct

As part of a bigger project to restore the Carnarvon Heritage Precinct, our team collected old concrete blocks from the lighthouse base at the Heritage Centre. 

In addition, they restored historically important wagons by cleaning and oiling them – preserving them for the future.

We are working together with Mr Dudley Maslen to make One Mile Jetty an attractive tourism destination and share the rich history of the area with visitors.  

The guys were all motivated to keep this area looking beautiful and showed impressive teamwork.  

We’re looking forward to helping Mr Maslen with more projects in this area.

Tuberculosis Screening Clinic

Local hospital representatives visited our work shed in December to conduct Tuberculosis (TB) screening.  

Getting screened for TB is beneficial for the entire community as it reduces its prevalence and averts it spreading further.  

All our team was happy to be tested and each received a negative test result.  

The hospital is scaling up systematic screening for TB as a large proportion of TB patients in Australia remain undetected or present late for care. Real Futures is happy to support all healthcare initiatives in our community.
