Welcome to Autumn and it is a great time to acknowledge all the community events happening in The Hills, with the commemoration of ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Centenary of ANZAC Reserve – Wrights Road Kellyville.
In the lead-up to Anzac Day, Residents can show their support for Australian Defence Force members including those deployed on overseas operations by sending a Care Package or just a letter of support. You can send a package free of charge through Australia Post by 5 April 2019.
You can address your package to:
An Australian Defence Member
AUSTRALIAN DEFENCE FORCE
The package must be less than 2kg and no larger than a “BX2” box, available at Australia Post outlets.
The Hills Relay for Life, a great community event raising funds and awareness about cancer is Saturday May 18th - Sunday May 19th, 2019 at Castle Hill Showground.
The other event which I am passionate about is the Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal which I am the Area Chairman of in the Hills. If you have a few hours to spare over the weekend of 25-26 May 2019 to volunteer to fund raise locally just register your details at https://www.salvationarmy.org.au/get-involved/volunteer-with-us/
It is also an exciting time at The Hills with the expected opening of the new Metro Rail link, where residents can access train travel for the first time with a train every 4 minutes during peak periods.
The other good news story is that The Hills Council is one of only few Councils in Sydney to reduce the cost of infringements for parking. Unfortunately we still need to have compliance to help residence and businesses throughout our Shire, but this is more of means of ensuring fairness not revenue raising.
There are so many great things to do in our Shire and if you haven’t done so already come along to our new Sporting and Playing fields at Caddies Road Reserve Kellyville, The new Pioneer Theatre at Castle Hill or just come to one of the open days at Bella Vista Farm to name a few.
On behalf of my family I wish you a Happy Easter for you and your family.
