MEDIA RELEASE

Hunter’s Hill Council has saluted the great sense of community that exists in the local government area, expressing good wishes to all for this Friday’s Hunters Hill Day.

At its meeting tonight (July 27, 2020) the Council adopted a Mayoral Minute report recognising the occasion.

Hunters Hill Day is celebrated annually on July 31.

“It is an opportunity to bring the community together to celebrate the location in which we are fortunate to live and build our connections with each other,” Mayor Mark Bennett said in the report.

“This year our July 31 celebrations have been impacted by the spread of COVID-19 throughout the world and we will be celebrating in a different way.

“Fortunately, in our Municipality there’s a strong sense of community built on shared values, shared history and the shared challenges we have faced together.

“Our social networks remain strong with our clubs, volunteer groups, churches, meeting places and community groups all making very important contributions to our lifestyle.”

On Hunters Hill Day 2020, people are encouraged to shop local and support businesses and community groups.

Councillors also voted tonight to enter a partnership with environmental group Ecopaddle to establish a waste education and volunteer program on the Lane Cove River. Using Stand Up Paddleboards or kayaks customised with a waste container, participants will paddle the Lane Cove River removing rubbish, conserving natural oyster beds and replanting local mangrove and seagrass beds.
