Mayor's Message 29 September 2015

Last week more stories about hooning and other damage at Kentish park surfaced, with 4WD’s churning up banks, wrecking fences, setting off fireworks and more worryingly the use of firearms and bow and arrows.  This beautiful area has consistently been the target of anti-social behaviour and at the time of writing Council was arranging meetings with Police.  If anyone has any information about the perpetrators please contact Robert Taylor at Council 6491 0200.

The Kentish Council is again offering a $1,250 scholarship to a university student or a student attending an approved education facility in 2016.  The scholarship is to help defray expenses for tertiary students.  Application forms are available from the Council’s website at or by contacting Chris at the Council Office. Applications close on 20th November 2014.

I was very impressed with the annual reports given at the Tandara Annual General Meeting last week.  They have achieved all the required standards, are extending the building to allow for expansion and have an incredibly high occupancy rate.  And all within budget and with such friendly and efficient staff.  We are extremely fortunate to have such a well-run care facility here in Kentish.

Tonight is the Wilmot Community Information evening.  Council holds these meetings every 6 months, and they present an opportunity to find out what Council is doing in the area- and also for Council to hear from residents about any concerns.  All welcome – 7pm at the Wilmot Memorial Hall.

Cr Don Thwaites, Mayor
