May Update


Dear residents,

Thank you to everyone who attended or contributed to last month’s Anzac Day ceremony. It was a wonderful event full of respect and admiration for the men and women who served and those who lost their lives fighting for their country. It’s a day that is close to my heart and a tradition that is important to our country, and I’m proud of our community who showed up in droves to show their support.

Youth Photography Competition

The Town of Claremont’s Youth Photography Competition is offering cash prizes for young people who are keen to get behind the lens and show us ‘what makes you happy’. The competition is open to young people aged 12-18 years who meet the eligibility criteria.

It’s a great opportunity for budding photographers or creative minds to show what they can do, and I’m looking forward to seeing what makes our young people happy and how they choose to capture this in their photos. The competition is open until Monday 20 May. Visit the event page terms and conditions and entry information.

A Day on the Bay

On Sunday 19 May the Town will be celebrating the beautiful Claremont foreshore at A Day on the Bay. The foreshore is an asset to the community and an important part of the natural ecosystem, where many native plants and animals live. Come down and enjoy water and land based activities, food, entertainment, sustainability and environment focused stalls, and much more. More details are available on our website.

Next Ordinary Council Meeting

The next Council meeting will be held on Tuesday 28 May. Information on council meetings can be found here.
