Mayors Message - January


I hope everybody had a great Christmas period and a positive start to the New Year. To our local business I trust that you all have had a positive start to 2018 and were able to capitalise and the many visitors we have had to our Shire. Last week the Bendigo Bank opened for business in Berrigan at the shire offices. To the Berrigan Bank Steering Committee and the staff of the shire well done for being able to secure this service for the people of Berrigan and surrounds.

I attended the Berrigan Show and Shine the other weekend and was amazed at the number of entries and people at this ever growing event. To the volunteers who assisted in running this event well done to you all.

I had the pleasure of umpiring the state PSSA cricket carnival for both boys and girls the week before last. With more than 700 people in our shire for the week this was a fantastically run event. The skill and sportsmanship shown by all is to be commended. I had many positive comments about our facilities and the conditions of our grounds. To the volunteers that run our recreation reserves we thank you for your dedication in running and presenting these facilities in such good order.

Australia Day awards again will be held in Barooga Community Hall this year. I encourage all to attend and help celebrate our award winners. Finally I encourage all that volunteer throughout our shire to continue to do so, you are the backbone of our events, running our facilities and making the Berrigan Shire a great place to live and visit. I also encourage anyone that hasn’t volunteered before or is looking to help out to make an effort to support our many different organisations in any way you can.
