He said the time spent at the post office was an “important way” for him to meet with the community.

Mr Tehan said a number of issues and topics were discussed with him but indicated the general feeling around Camperdown was “positive”.

“There’s obviously some ongoing issues with regard to the fires and ensuring we’re providing support to those affected,” he said

“(But) generally, it’s been about how the community is travelling.”
