Get involved in Local Government Week 2016

Local Government Week will be celebrated in the Hawkesbury from 1-7 August 2016.

Hawkesbury City Council is encouraging local residents to get involved in this great community event with lots of free activities for everyone.

This year’s theme for Local Government week is ‘Our Council, Our Community’, which reflects that Councils are closely connected to their communities, and also deliver services every day that are important to peoples’ lives.

As part of Local Government Week, have your say on a range of services and facilities provided by Council.

There will be a Listening Kiosk on Saturday, 6 August in North Richmond, and Public Meetings in Kurrajong on Wednesday, 3 August and Windsor on Thursday, 4 August. RSVP for the Public Meetings are essential – call (02) 4560 4444.

Hawkesbury Central Library will be offering free Pre-School Story Time, the Hawkesbury Regional Museum has the ongoing exhibition: The Great War 1914 – 1918: Hawkesbury Heroes, and the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery also has the Wunderkammer: The Cabinet of Wonders exhibition, for example.

Alternatively, enter one of our competitions. ‘Fatigue can be Fatal – Driver Safety Competition’ is for drivers aged between 17-25 years. Visit to answer three fatigue related questions and you could be one of three winners to take your mates to a driver safety workshop. Or, enter on behalf of a young person that you know to help them be safer on the roads.
