Welcome to Summer which for me is a special time to live in The Hills - and time to take advantage of the many functions and facilities that Council has to offer.
I always look forward to attending the various events in Bella Vista Farm, ‘Christmas in The Hills’, Shakespeare In The Park, Australia Day and the Red Hot Summer Tour, which will feature two headline concerts with Jimmy Barnes in February and John Farnham in March.
I appreciate that there are many who may take leave during the Christmas period and remain in the Shire opting not to travel. This is a great time to take advantage of the 329 parks and reserves that Council has both in urban and in rural locations. Just go on the Council’s web page to find where they are located.
Many of these locations have children’s playgrounds, barbecue facilities and walking trails which can be an opportunity to discover The Hills for family or formal gatherings, or just simply taking time out with the children and relaxing.
As we head towards the end of a busy 2018, I wish you a Merry Christmas - and a Happy, Healthy New Year to you and your family - and look forward to continuing to serve you in 2019.
