The visual presence of Choose Respect in our community continues to grow with the erection of a new sign in the CBD on the Grand Cinemas Complex.

Thanks to the support of Forrest MP Nola Marino and Smith Constructions who provided the installation, the sign is another tool to assist people to stop and think before they act.

Choose Respect is a long term project which aims to bring about cultural change by teaching and encouraging respectful behaviour within all areas of our community. 

Choose Respect Bunbury patron John Castrilli said the more the community sees the signs, the more it reminds them to take a moment to consider their actions and the consequences. 

“More and more we are seeing people reach out to embrace the simple Choose Respect message,” he said.  

Mr Castrilli also encouraged everyone to attend the groups AGM on Monday, December 4 at 5pm at Carey Park Primary School.

“If we want to build a better community, develop our children’s resilience and foster a culture to turn the tide on alcohol and drug abuse and related anti-social behaviours, then we all have a responsibility to do something and be part of the change,” he said. 

“There is too much at stake to do nothing.”

Choose Respect resources and information flyers can be collected from Nola Marino’s office during business hours, or for more information, phone Leanne on 0434 147 257.
