Mayor Peter Freshney's Message

Wednesday 30th January 2019  


Congratulations to the Latrobe Municipality’s Australia Day Award recipients Wayne Jaffray (Citizen of the Year), Ashtyn Dennison (Young Citizen of the Year) and to the Latrobe Cemetery Working Bees for the Community Event of the Year.  The Australia Day Awards are not bestowed lightly and nominations received are judged by a committee against a stringent set of criteria.  Congratulations again to all recipients and now may be a good time to start thinking about who you could nominate for 2020.


Congratulations also to local resident Gina Timms who was inducted into the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame Hands of Fame at Tamworth on Australia Day.  Gina was the only Tasmanian artist to be inducted this year and only the 10th Tasmanian in the ‘Hands of Fame’ history to be given this honour.  Well done Gina!


If you are looking for something to do this Sunday February 3rd why not come along to the Port Sorell Tennis Club in Kermode Street, Port Sorell for a free hit of tennis.  From 10.30am there will be courts available for younger people who may never have picked up a racket before or for those who may just like having a hit. There will also be free coaching and games available from tennis coach Peter Georgiades.  From 11.30am, teenagers and older members are able to dust of their rackets and have a hit.  Balls and rackets will be available at the club with courts closing at 2.00pm.  Please email portsorelltennisclub@hotmail.com for further information.
