By now every home in Kentish should have received the Kentish Health Assessment. Ideally every home will complete this study so we have all the information needed to plan for our future health needs. If you have not got the survey please call Council on 64910200 to have a copy mailed to you. The study is confidential - you are not even asked to fill in your name or address.
Kentish Council now has a Facebook page. Like our site and become a follower and you will receive updates from Council including important messages such as emergency and road closure information, as well as events and goings-on around the place. It is more informal than the website, but the website is still there for reference.
Last week I attended the end of year Sheffield School presentation day and the Junior Cattle Handlers presentation evening. I was very impressed with the school children and their achievements. We are very fortunate to have such a great school, with teachers and parents willing to share their enthusiasm for the benefit of our children. Many thanks to Tim Dyer who has been President of the School Council for 15 years, and to all the school council members, along with the Cattle Handling committee, host farmers and especially Barry & Debbie Woodcock who have provided transport for many years.
As this is the last Mayors Message for 2014, I would like to wish all readers a very merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Cr Don Thwaites, Mayor
