Launched by the State Government on 1 July 2022, the $250 Power Saving Bonus (PSB) is a financial package designed to assist energy consumers in Victoria.

The Power Saving Bonus program provides a one-off payment of $250 for Victorian Households to ease cost-of-living pressures and encourage Victorians to compare their household energy prices and save money. The $250 Power Saving Bonus is available to all Victorians households.

To be eligible for the $250 Power Saving Bonus, Victorian households will need to:

Last week the town of Harrow had a visit from the BraVan. It was wonderful to meet Helen and Sherri and give the residents of Harrow and district the opportunity to shop for 'undergarments' and clothing without the need to leave town.

Thanks to all those who made appointments with the BraVan; the service was well supported with Friday appointments booked out, and Thursday afternoon bookings needed as well.

It would be fabulous for this visit to become a regular yearly stopover on the ladies' busy calendar.


A quick snapshot of the many and varied events conducted by Harrow Neighbourhood House over the years.

Thanks as always to the staff , volunteers and contractors who helped make these events happen.
