Residents of Lakeside Pakenham will become even more connected with their neighbours following the launch of the community’s own online portal this month, with over 140 members and 20 businesses already signed up.
The Lakeside Pakenham Community Portal is designed to provide locals with all the latest news and events within and around the community and is a forum to connect with other residents and businesses.
Delfin Lend Lease Project Director Sharon Coates said the online portal is a great way for the residents of Lakeside Pakenham to learn more about their community.
“The community portal will allow residents to stay up-to-date with the latest local news, and will be a vital communication tool, giving residents a chance to have their say in the online discussions,” Ms Coates said.
“Local clubs, community groups and businesses will also be invited to create their own web page to help promote themselves and interact with the community.
“Numbers are growing every day as we are encourage all locals, whether you live, learn, work or play at Lakeside, to sign up as a member and start getting the most out of your community.”
USB memory sticks have been provided to Lakeside households as gifts to jump start their connection to the community. Visit the new community portal at http://www.lakesidepakenhamonline.com.au www.lakesidepakenhamonline.com.au.
