A Dinosaur theme for the School holidays

We are having some fun in our municipality during the September school holidays.

Our services are partnering to present local children and visitors to our region with Dinosaur themed activities.

Our Visitor Services, Pioneer Settlement, Art Gallery, Library services and the Town Hall, will be hosting fun activities for all ages. And, what’s more, children will have the chances to win prizes.

Children who participate will go in the draw to win $400 worth of Swan Hill shopping dollars, once they have received a dinosaur stamp, from each of our participating services and submitted their entry at the Swan Hill Region Information Centre.

First prize is $250 Swan Hill shopping dollars, second prize is $100 and third prize is $50.

We hope the activities create some excitement for the Dinomaniacs show, coming to the Town Hall on Wednesday, 28 September.

New colour scheme for Swan Hill Town Hall PACC

Following a recent poll on Council’s Let’s Talk page, our results are in and the new heritage colour scheme for the Swan Hill Town Hall will be the preferred option.

We had a great response from the community, with 187 people completing the poll.

I would like to thank everyone for their input and assistance in determining this outcome.

Council now has a tender open for the exterior refurbishment project and it will close on Thursday, 15 September.

Go North festival

The Go North Arts Festival in Swan Hill last weekend was a great success and I extend my congratulations to the organizing committee.

It was a wonderful family day with outstanding performers and come and try art workshops for all.

Wet conditions

It is beginning to look like our region can expect prolonged wet conditions this spring.

I urge residents to stay vigilant and ensure that your properties are prepared for ongoing wet conditions and possible high river levels.

Remember to also keep up to date on  forecasted weather conditions.
