Thanks to Cr Geoff Lovett for last week’s Column. We will be alternating these so all Councillors can share their news and views with you.
How lucky we were great weather for the final Dine Out Goldfields last Saturday. The ambience was very special and a tremendous finale for the three events. Thanks to all who worked so hard to make this very successful.
So good to see the return of the Talbot Markets on Sunday on another perfect day. Some stalls were missing but the confidence was back and 2021 will hopefully see all our markets back.
Council has been discussing priorities. We want to be clear what our community expects us to deliver and focus on those things. We are keen to show early and visible action on those things which we believe our community considers important.
Christmas is often a time when cute little puppies are given as presents only to be later dumped. This reminds us of the wonderful work undertaken by Council’s pet rehoming service supported by so many in the community including Facebook friends and followers. Please continue to support this service and see if you can provide a loving home for the dogs and cats available.
On behalf of my fellow Councillors, the CEO and staff I want to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and New Year. Above all things we want it to be a safe time so the distress of 2020 may be well behind us for good.
