Fes­tive Sea­son

The fes­tive sea­son is upon us again and I wish all res­i­dents and visitors fun, laugh­ter and hap­pi­ness through­out the hol­i­day pe­riod and al­ways.

School Grad­u­a­tions

Novem­ber and De­cem­ber al­ways sees a full cal­en­dar of school grad­u­a­tions and end of year con­certs. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all stu­dents who have grad­u­ated this year, en­joy your break be­fore head­ing into the next stage of your life’s.

2018 in re­flec­tion

Through­out 2018 we have seen some sig­nif­i­cant projects com­pleted and have again been recog­nised with some well de­served awards. Pem­ber­ton drainage study was com­pleted and Guppy Street and Hospi­tal Av­enue were re­sealed. Mid­dle­ton Road was re­sealed near North­cliffe and in Walpole the Recre­ation Cen­tre was fit­ted with a new play­ground and the Pi­o­neer Park re­de­vel­op­ment is pro­gress­ing. Ear­lier in the year we had the Queens Ba­ton travel through the Shire, car­ried by some very de­serv­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers, and cul­mi­nat­ing in an en­joy­able evening in the Her­itage Park. Also in the Her­itage Park we saw the open­ing of the Sandra Donovan Sound Shell, the Vol­un­teer Hub and the re-open­ing of the State Tim­ber Mu­seum. The Well­ness and Respite Com­mu­nity Cen­tre opened its doors in April and is won­der­ful fa­cil­ity for the com­mu­nity. The new north­ern round­about was opened in Au­gust and in Novem­ber we turned the sod for the new SWEE build­ing. The Shire of Man­jimup in con­junc­tion with East Man­jimup Pri­mary School were the win­ners of the Ju­nior Pri­mary School Cat­e­gory of the Ban­ners in the Ter­race com­pe­ti­tion held an­nu­ally dur­ing Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Week. Also at Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment week we picked up an award in the Chil­dren’s En­vi­ron­men­tal and Health Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Pol­icy Awards, the award was pre­sented to Sharon Wilkin­son for her out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the or­gan­i­sa­tion of the Young Women Em­pow­ered expo. In Oc­to­ber the team at Man­jimup Home and Com­mu­nity Care were recog­nised as fi­nal­ists in the pres­ti­gious Prime Su­per Em­ployer Ex­cel­lence in Aged Care Awards.

Merry Christ­mas…. Paul
