MILDURA’S “incredibly successful” Project Ice campaign, which has led the charge on regional methamphetamine education, will continue until June.
After that, its future is unknown.
Northern Mallee Community Partnership executive officer Michelle Withers confirmed yesterday that the project was originally scheduled to finish up in February.
But she said following a strategic meeting last week and a NMCP board meeting, the project had been given the go-ahead to continue until the middle of the year.
Project Ice is a sub-committee of community groups that report to Mildura’s Safety Operations Group, which Mildura police Inspector Simon Clemence chairs.
The campaign aims to educate people on the dangers of taking methamphetamine, or ice, and has reached 155,275 people through its Facebook page.
More than 2500 have ‘liked’ the page, while a community funded series of posters and a TV advertisement have reached a combined 9610 people.
