Council Column - 25 January 2021 - Councillor Rita O'Connor

As we prepare to celebrate Australia Day 2021, we reflect on how our Hilltops story connects each of us. How fortunate we have been in the past months to receive drought-breaking rain, harvest record crops and be relatively untouched by the COVID pandemic that has killed over 2 million people. The theme of this year’s Australia Day is Reflect, Respect, Celebrate; which is apt for the year that has been.

Hilltops Australia Day celebrations in Young

Council are pleased to advise that they will now be able to accommodate an increased number of guests at the Australia Day Ceremony being held at the Young Town Hall next Tuesday, 26 January 2021. The increase in number of guests permitted is due to a relaxation of the current NSW Health Orders for Australia Day events.

Council Column - 20 January 2021 - Mayor Brian Ingram

Last week Council hosted three COVID safe youth movie nights as the first events of our new youth program funded by the State Government. The first event was held in Young on Tuesday night with 150 attendees, the event in Harden was held on Wednesday night with 50 attendees, and in Boorowa on Thursday night also with 50 attendees. These numbers are fantastic and give a solid indication that our youth program will be very popular. We received great feedback from the community and local police. Well done to our Youth Engagement and Inclusion Officer, Georgia, who worked tirelessly to ensure the events were a success. I extend my sincere thanks to Police Inspector Jacob Reeves and his team who provided support at each event. Jacob and his team are to be commended on their efforts to engage with Hilltops youth. Thanks also to the Council staff who volunteered their time to help out at each event, a great team effort.

Council Column - 14 January 2021 - Mayor Brian Ingram

I would like to wish the entire Hilltops community a very happy new year.     For some, travel plans over the break were disrupted due to the evolving COVID-19 situation. The lead up to Christmas was very uncertain and somewhat concerning as we watched numbers increase following the northern beaches outbreak. Thankfully, due to strict restrictions, the numbers have now decreased. This is a timely reminder that the risk of exposure is still very real. It is important that we all continue to do the right thing by maintaining strict hygiene and social distancing practices and adhering to public health orders and advice.
