A Word From The Mayor

What an exciting time of the year it is, and how hard to believe it’s already December. It’s been a busy year at Council, and we are excited to highlight some of the great things that have been happening in our community.

In this issue of Salisbury Aware you will hear from your Elected Members, catch up on community stories, and find out about building projects, grants and upcoming events.

You’ll discover what we’ve been up to at the Salisbury Community Hub with our new Hub After Dark pilot, see all the great improvements that we’ve been making to local businesses and sporting facilities, as well as hearing from members of the community who have received grants and awards for all of their hard work to make the community a better place.

Being the hub of multiculturalism that it is, the City of Salisbury had an exciting visit from Dr Bulent Hass Dellal, an expert in multicultural affairs. He met with Council leaders and youth representatives to discuss Australia’s Multicultural Framework, the City’s commitment to its diverse community, and local youth-focused initiatives and programs.

We’ve also got a few stories on the exciting achievements of our talented young residents. Whether it’s winning an award for athletics on the world stage, or receiving the Phoebe Wanganeen Scholarship for academic skills, we have some truly inspiring future leaders in our community, and we commend them on their accomplishments.

Finally, I would like to wish everyone a very safe and happy holidays. May you get to spend time with loved ones or find some much deserved time to relax.

See you in 2024!


Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM
