Council Column- 13 October 2020- Councillor John Horton

Over the past six Months I have talked about the light at the end of the Dark COVID-19 virus tunnel. At long last it seems Hilltops is emerging from the dark without any outbreaks. Again my congratulations go to all residents for sticking to the many restrictions which have ensured our safety to date. Stay vigilant and we shall continue to be safe.

Council Column- 16 September 2020- Mayor Brian Ingram

2020 has been challenging in many ways, with current circumstances making it more important than ever for us to stay connected with each other. Last week was RUOK? Day, an important reminder that you don’t have to be an expert to keep the conversation going when someone says they’re not OK.  Make time to listen, encourage action and check in with them throughout the process. Something as simple as a conversation could save a life.  In the current environment there is a lot of stress out there in the community. Please look after yourselves and each other.
