Mayor's Message 12 March 2019

Council has secured a further $850,000 funding for the Wild Mersey Mountain Bike Trails through the Building Better Regions Fund. The Wild Mersey Mountain Bike experience has been an important collaborative project of the Kentish and Latrobe Councils for the past four years. This funding will be an added boost to its completion and will enable the expansion of Stage 2 and completion of Stage 3 at Sheffield.

It was an amazing weekend for Sheffield with Steamfest, Gowrie Park Rodeo and Taste of the North West all registering large crowds. Congratulations to Steamfest who drew record crowds for their 25th Anniversary year.

Congratulations to Julie Winwood who was named Woman of the Year 2019 at the Kentish International Women’s Day 2019 celebration. Over 100 people attended the event to celebrate the achievements of women in Kentish.
