Merry Christmas from the Mayor

On behalf of Councillors and staff, I’d like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

2021 has been another challenging year for us all. While COVID has been the unwanted gift that keeps on giving, it does look like we’re finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m looking forward to seeing our Campaspe region buzzing with activity across the festive period. I hope you can spend lots of quality time with your family and friends during the break. Hopefully, that will be in person, instead of via a Zoom meeting.

If you can, give to those who have been doing it tough lately. When you are out and about, stay safe and be patient on the roads.

Merry Christmas, I’ll see you all in 2022!

- Mayor, Cr Chrissy Weller
