New Entrance to Harbour

As part of the Portarlington Safe Harbour project works are continuing this week installing navigational aides to the East entrance to the harbour. Red and green bouys have been placed in the deepest part of the entrance to allow for shipping to pass safely. Eventually the west opening, seen in the top picture, will be closed to all marine traffic.

FENDYK GONE….but not forgotten


Bellarine Community Health’s long serving Chief Executive Office John Fendyk has today announced his intention to retire from his role with the organization.

Mr Fendyk has informed the Board of Bellarine Community Health that he will not be seeking an extension to his contract which finishes in June this year.

“It with some sadness that I have made the decision not to commit as CEO beyond my current contract period,” Mr Fendyk said.

“It has been a privilege to be CEO of Bellarine Community Health for the past 12 years and I sincerely want to thank the Board and Staff both past and present for all their support in that time.”

“Signalling my intention to retire at the end of my contract allows the Board a significant period of time to recruit the right candidate to lead Bellarine Community Health into the future,” he said.

Mr Fendyk has overseen a significant period of change at Bellarine Community Health which has included major capital works and development projects.

“I’m proud of the work we have done redeveloping and upgrading our Community Health Centres at Drysdale and Portarlington. We have greatly enhanced the clinical spaces and facilities for our clients and the community. I look forward to seeing the transformation of the Queenscliff Community Health Centre at Point Lonsdale,” he said.

Board Chair Hazel Ingram thanked Mr Fendyk for his years of service, commitment and dedication to Bellarine Community Health.

“On behalf of the Board I would like to thank John for his loyalty to the organization for the past 12 years,” Ms Ingram said.

“We greatly respect the strong values John has displayed and his hard work in forward planning and securing a future for this organisation.”

The Board of Bellarine Community Health will now begin a recruitment process for a new Chief Executive Officer.

The Department of Health has been informed of today’s announcement along with other key stakeholders.

Well….Mr Fendyk and the current board have certainly left a legacy, a legacy which many thought was unrepresentative of the community they are charged to represent. Maybe community boards in future can be elected, not appointed?  Ed.
