Here are some of the things you told us about the website last quarter. We value your feedback and act on it to improve our website content whenever possible – as you can see from the following examples:


"Great that the Bulletin is available via email. I no longer want to receive the paper version at all. Is that possible? " (rating 3 stars)

Action taken: customer was removed from the Boroondara Bulletin print distribution list.

"Change of address for registered pet, try to find this on your web site, I couldn't." (rating 1 star)

Action taken: updated the heading and layout on the 'Transfer your pet' page to make this content more visible for customers.

"This is the most organised, clear and concise competition registration." (rating 5 stars)
