Kentish Council is currently preparing a Master Plan for the Goliath Park precinct. Sport and Recreation Tasmania has been invited to facilitate a meeting on Thursday night which will look at ways the Railton Goliath Park can be improved to meet current and future needs. The meeting will be held at 7pm at the Railton Bowls Club. All interested members of the community are invited to attend. A light supper will be provided.
A Military Ball has been planned to mark the Commemoration of the ANZAC and WW I Centenary. This wonderful night will take place on Friday November 7th in the Sheffield Town Hall. Here’s your chance to really dress up and dance those old-style steps along to the De Javu band. Tickets are now available from the RSL; $20 including supper, or $5 to sit upstairs in the spectator gallery. Although there will be tickets available at the door, the Committee would like to have most tickets sold by October 30th. On Saturday November 8th at 2 pm the new 9 metre commemorative mural on the Sheffield RSL, designed and painted by Damian Rossiter, will be officially opened. It will be a great event, with the Latrobe Town Band playing and some wartime songs performed by the Kentish Community Choir. The ceremony will be followed by afternoon tea, and entertainment provided by “Trifle”.
Council is now accepting applications for the Kentish Council Youth Scholarship. The scholarship is available to students residing in the Kentish municipality who, as part of their ongoing education are required to relocate from the area. Applications are available from the council offices and at www.kentish.tas.gov.au/youthscholarship. Nominations must be received by Friday 21st November 2014.
