Be Kind Central Goldfields
Last year we rolled out the #BeKindCentralGoldfields campaign to support our local community during the challenges of the pandemic.
With restrictions continuing, we’re spreading the message again on Council’s Facebook page –
The campaign was launched with the new Smiling Face garden bed at the Phillips Gardens.
Thank you to our Parks and Gardens team for this lovely gesture - we're sure it will help spread some cheer across our community during this challenging time.
