Well, I’ve been the new Mayor of Hawkesbury for just over a week now and I’m already enjoying it. Working with our community is important to me and I hope to be able to connect with as many of you as possible during the next 12 months in my role as Mayor. I’m delighted to tell you that we’ve launched a new ‘park pop up’ idea for our community this week for you to enjoy some great refreshments while you explore our open spaces in the Hawkesbury.
If you’re out and about, you may have already seen Council celebrating school holidays at our local parks with park pop ups of free tea or coffee and iceblocks for our community.
On Monday, 28 September, parents, carers, children and anyone at Ham Common, Clarendon and then Richmond Park had the chance to enjoy our park pop ups, as well as the beautiful spring weather. Everyone got into the spirit of it and had some free iceblocks to cool down while others took time to relax with a cuppa courtesy of Council.
Council is hosting more pop ups at three other locations during the school holidays, with the next pop up expected to be today, 1 October from 10am to 11am. Follow Council’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/hawkesburycitycouncil and keep an eye out as we’ll be giving away free coffee/tea and iceblocks (in a COVID-Safe way) to anyone who is there, discovering our open spaces!

I'd like to thank the Council for their confidence and support in electing me as Mayor of Hawkesbury last night for the 2020-2021 Mayoral Term.
My ambition is to work with the whole Council as the ratepayers expect us to, to benefit the community.
Please join me in congratulating Councillor Mary Lyons-Buckett on her re-election as Deputy Mayor. I would also like to acknowledge the work of the former Mayor – Councillor Barry Calvert, over his past two years as Mayor.
