Teleeha Thomas, Kentish Young Australian of the Year 2018, has been awarded a scholarship in Arizona, USA to attend a Cultural Studies Program.

Work is underway on upgrades to the footpath on the south side of Albert Street, between Henry Street and High Street. The new pathway will provide safer pedestrian walks on Albert Street, improved access to the Working Art Space, and an attractive entrance to King George V Park. Council requests that pedestrians take care in the area while work is occurring.

Congratulations to all those who participated in Triple Top Mountain Run over the weekend with over 330 people competing in this year’s event.
