2018 LOCAL WOMAN OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to Mrs Anne-Maree Kinley of Castle Hill – an amazing woman who I
recently presented the 2018 Local Woman of the Year award.
Anne-Maree is an exceptionally worthy recipient for her tireless commitment to
bringing positive change to Castle Hill through her dedication of over 21 years to the
local schools and community.
HILLS SES HONOURED
It was a great honour to attend the Hills SES Unit 2018 Awards Presentation
Evening and 50th Anniversary Celebration.
The event was hosted by The Hills Shire Council, and attended by various local
dignitaries who gathered together to present awards to some of the most outstanding
volunteers in the local community.
As Minister responsible for Volunteering, it gave me great pleasure to be a part of
this event and to present awards to those members who have achieved 15 years of
service to the organisation.
STAMP DUTY RELIEF SUCCESS
More than 19,000 people secured the keys to their first homes since the NSW
Government introduced generous stamp duty concessions in July 2017. This has
more than tripled the 5,400 over the same period last year, with strong results
continuing into 2018.
Housing affordability is a priority for this Government, and we are driving real
outcomes for people in NSW.
