COVID-19 - We're here for you

As a Council we’re doing our best to maintain services and add more that can help our community - you can read more about that on the COVID-19 page.
This gallery is to showcase the good in our community, and we need your help. If you see a local business rallying to keep serving the community, or a child's chalk drawing of a rainbow on the footpath that made you smile, post it on Instagram with the hashtag #rallymooneevalley. That way it'll be posted here as a celebration of our community rallying together to get through this tough time.

2018 Dal Zotto King Valley Sangiovese - $23 🍷

Otto Dal Zotto arrived in Australia, from Italy in 1948 and settled in the King Valley. He purchased land years later and grew tobacco until planting vines in the 1980s. Otto and Elena worked the land, sold their grapes and brought up 4 boys. Two of those boys, Michael and Christian have now taken over the operation of the property, Michael being the winemaker. Their new labels are very stylish, with pictures of all the flavours found in the wine. We like all the sour cherry flavours, with coffee hints and earthy edges✨

To order call Mark on 0458 085 418 or go to our NEW online wine store through the link in our bio.

We have been thrown many challenges over the past couple of weeks - living in a state of uncertainty.
.
Some of us are feeling overwhelmed. Maybe fearful, sad or experiencing other emotions. Many of us have been affected through the work we do, our kids schooling, socially and in our day to day activities.
.
I felt it was important to reach out and connect with you all and to offer some words of reassurance and positivity.
.
Rather than going into a can’t-do mindset at this time, maybe begin to focus on the gift.
.
And I mean the gift of time.
.
Taking the time to reconnect back in with yourself is such a beautiful gift, and there are many, many ways to do this.
.
Meditation, journalling and more. Read more in our blog post - see link in bio.
.
You'll also see a special gift at the end of this post just for you!

It may not feel like it, but the weekend is here and for a little treat we're sharing our famous 'Spresso Martini recipe with you! 🍸

Pour 45ml minorfigures Cold Press Coffee (Latte), 30ml Kahlua and 30ml Vodka into a Boston Shaker with a handful of Ice and shake well (gives your cocktail a great head of foam). Pour through a strainer - ideally double strain through a separate hand strainer as seen in our photo, and garnish with 3 coffee beans!
We can't wait to have many 'Spressos with you on the other side of this crazy time - RSVP to our Espresso Yourself: $10 Espresso Martini Festival on our website (link in bio) to try plenty of variations!

What does easing of restrictions mean for you?

Less traffic isn’t a licence to speed

It’s great to see so many Moonee Valley residents stay home to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. What isn’t so good is a spike in speeding drivers on our now quiet roads.
