Hi everyone, things are getting back into full swing after the holiday period.
Council Meeting - First for the year this month, the community always welcome to sit in and have the ability to ask questions in question time.
Australia Day celebrations attracted local community for breakfast. The highlights were; Citizenship Ceremony for Mrs Susan Forrester, congratulations to her on becoming an Australian. Congratulations also to the Nanson Museum Committee, winners of the Community Group Award as well as Mrs Nicole Batten the Citizen of the Year winner. The selection committee were very impressed with the quality and involvement of candidates they had to choose from, they could not all win, but the community is far richer because of the many dedicated people who give many hours to their Community. Many thanks to the people who worked hard to put the event together.
Electors Meeting - Recently held, another forum for electors to put their views to Council. Main concerns were from the Park Falls community seeking information on potential bike and foot paths also concerns connected to safety on estate roads and around school bus stops. Council will have to look at speed limits and bus stop protocol so we appreciate feedback from community.
Turf Wicket - Council, as part of their forward planning, have been looking at the logistics and viability of maintaining the wicket so we appreciate community feedback on that issue.
A positive is the combined Chapman Valley and Northampton cricket associations which is developing and promoting Cricket in the shires, and a positive in greater use of the pitch.
