Kempsey Show fireworks alert

Council is reminding residents to ensure their pets are secure when the fireworks display takes place on Saturday 16 September at this year’s Kempsey Show. The fireworks are scheduled to occur after the Aussie FXM display around 8pm.

Half-day local event

NSW Industrial Relations has declared Saturday 16 September from 12 midday a half-day local event in the Kempsey Shire Council area for Kempsey Show.

A declared local event day does not automatically mean employers are compelled to treat the day as a public holiday. Entitlements to staff will only apply when agreed to within the workplace, usually as an enterprise agreement or contract.
