Councillors, senior staff and our new General Manager, Rebecca Ryan, who commenced in the role only a couple of months ago, celebrated the end of a very busy year with Cottage Volunteers and members of the various Towns and Villages Committee Representatives after the December 2014 Council meeting at the Councillors Christmas Party.
The success of the many shire activities and events throughout the year is testament to Blayney being renown as ‘the shire of villages’ and has put us on the map as a tourist destination. These events would not happen if it were not for the local volunteers, giving up their time and energy for the betterment of their community and it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to formally thank these volunteers and community people for a tremendous 2014.
On behalf of Councillors and staff I extend to the residents of Blayney Shire a Happy New Year and wishing you all a safe return from the holiday period whilst you spend this special time with family and friends. Council offices reopened after the Christmas shutdown this week and staff are back on deck all looking forward to a productive and exciting 2015.
