Deputy Mayors Message 22 May 2018

There will be a fungi photographic workshop at the O’Neill’s Creek Nature Walk hosted by the Kentish Field Naturalists, starting at 10 am on Saturday May 26th. Everyone is invited to attend. The workshop is designed for those who want to take better photos with the camera they have….even a smartphone. Local professional photographer Chris Puccetti will join the workshop and offer some tips. For more information call Basil on 0400 875 717

The Apple Isle Carriage Drivers will be having an open day on Saturday May 26. Their new home is next to the Railton Recreation Ground on the old trotting track on Native Rock Road. The group has done a tremendous job in cleaning up the old site with countless loads taken to the tip. Come along and learn more about the group and even have a free carriage ride on the day. The Chairman of the Sheffield and Railton Community Bank will attend on the day to present a cheque to the group to contribute towards the purchase of a mower for the site. Kentish Council has also contributed a small grant to the group for the same purpose. Call Chris Hearle to learn more on 0417 775 749.

Kentish Council are excited to hear of the Federal funding for the Coastal Pathways Project. Of specific interest is the announcement to fund the construction of a bicycle pathway from Latrobe to Devonport along River Road. This will allow riders to essentially ride off road from the Spirits of Tasmania through to the coming Wild Mersey mountain bike trails. The construction will also link Wild Mersey to the coastal bicycle trails that will eventually wind their way to.

Tim Wilson, Deputy Mayor
