Community Catch Ups

Community Catch Up at Stuarts Point Hall

Kempsey Shire Council will be actively engaging with the community by commencing a program of Community Catch Ups. Part of Council’s Communications Strategy, the Catch Ups will involve Councillors and senior Council staff but will be less formal than a Council meeting.

The meetings will be scheduled quarterly at different locations in the Shire to provide an opportunity to update residents on projects and priorities specific to their part of the Macleay while allowing for site visits and meetings with community groups.

Residents are encouraged to attend the first Community Catch Up taking place in Stuarts Point this month.

When: Wednesday 25 October, 5pm - 7pm

For more information please phone Council’s Customer Service Centre on 6566 3200
