1st Heatherdale’s digital forms and operations platform provider, CareMonkey, has rebranded as ‘Operoo’ as at 10 August 2020. 

How we use the service, as well as the ownership and operation of the company, remains unchanged.

You can continue using the system, and its mobile application, as usual. Just be aware that emails and notifications sent from the system will now appear under the new name ‘Operoo’. You will also be automatically diverted to the new Operoo website if you go to the old CareMonkey website.

Hall Refurbishment

We are very pleased to advise that the City of Whitehorse are due to commence our hall refurbishment program this week.

The highlights of the program include:
  • re-stumping and replacement of the floor boards in the hall
  • replacement of the existing timber bearer with a steel bearer along the eastern side of the hall
  • construction of new front steps
  • addition of a ramp to the front entry
  • a new doorway in the eastern wall of the Venturer's den
  • a ramp from the new doorway to the front entry porch.
This program has mostly been funded by the City of Whitehorse but has also been supported by a grant from the Federal Government.

You can follow the progress on our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/1stheatherdalescoutgroup.
