Celebrate Summer in The Hills and take advantage of the great events that Council will bring you during the Festive and Holiday Season, with events for adults and children alike.
Bring the children and join our Mayor at the Mayor’s Children’s Christmas Party. One of my favourite venues is Bella Vista Farm, where you can join in the carolling and entertainment that the annual Christmas in The Hills will deliver.
Enjoy a night out under the stars with Shakespeare In The Park with one of Shakespeare’s favourites – Romeo and Juliet. Outside of Christmas I look forward to the New Year which leads to Australia Day.
Join in the Celebrations for Australia Day at flag raising ceremonies across The Shire, at Heritage Park Castle Hill, John Benyon Park Kenthurst, Annangrove Reserve and cap it off with great Australian entertainment, activities and fireworks at Bella Vista Farm.
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 urban and in rural locations. Just visit Council’s website 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 come to the end of this year and a new decade commencing in 2020, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a Merry Christmas celebrating the child Christ’s birth and a happy, healthy, prosperous New Year. I look forward continuing to serve you and our community in 2020.
