Exciting news from the Working Arts Space! The Working Art Space has been contacted by the Tasmanian Community Fund as the Mosaic Pathway has been chosen as one of only 13 in the State to feature in a video celebrating the disbursement of $100 million in funding to worthy community projects over the past 20 years. The video will be shot on Thursday, 24th January between 1pm and 3pm. Our congratulations to the Working Art Space on the remarkable achievement with the Mosaic Footpath and all the wonderful work they do in the community.

The Railton Community Progress Association next meeting will be held tonight at the Railton Neighbourhood Centre from 7.30pm. All are welcome to attend.

The next meeting of Council will be held on Tuesday, 22 January from 7pm at the Kentish Council Office. The Kentish Council Youth Scholarship will be awarded at the meeting. Please come along to add your congratulations.

Some of your Kentish Councillors and our General Manager were lucky enough to be given a guided tour of the Devils Gate Power Station recently. The site is currently being refurbished and it was an amazing experience to have a peek inside the facility. Hydro is an important part of the history of Kentish and will play a major role in it’s future, especially if Pumped Hydro swings into action. Many thanks to Tony Harris and Zac McCarthy for organising our visit and showing us through. Council looks forward to working more closely with Hydro Tasmania in the future.

Tim Wilson, MAYOR
