I would like to congratulate the Rabbitohs. They may have fallen agonisingly short of premiership glory, but they remain our champions.
The final score didn’t allow for celebrations in the streets like the Rabbitohs' 21 previous premiership wins, yet there were still plenty of reasons for Bayside fans to be proud.
Congratulations on a well-played game however and I am looking forward to the 2022 NRL season.
I would also like congratulate Bayside residents for responding so well to the COVID-19 vaccination rollout program. We have hit that 70% double vaccination goal and I am looking forward to the new freedoms the NSW Government has promised from Monday.
We are ready to help residents and business navigate their way out of this lockdown, but please remain cautious. We are not out of the woods yet.
Nominations for this year’s Citizen, Young Citizen and Sportsperson of the Year Awards are open.
The Awards acknowledge the champions who stepped up to help their community particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
It’s been a tough year and I am proud of the care and compassion everyone has shown during this difficult time
Please take the opportunity to nominate someone who has made a real contribution to our community.
I am pleased the upgraded Brighton Memorial Playing Fields were handed back to Bayside Council following a multi-million dollar makeover as part of the M6 Stage 1 project.
The upgraded fields are ready for the community to enjoy and Council hopes to host an official community celebration as soon as the Health Orders allow.
Finally, the next Council Meeting is on Wednesday 13 October. There is much work to be done in the lead up to the election on Saturday 4 December.
We are all here working for you and I hope you will join us as Councillors debate the issues and concerns that matter to Bayside.
The full agenda is published on Council’s website and the meeting is streamed live online.
