Mayor's message

September 2021

Thank you to everyone who came along our annual ‘Celebrate Lake Claremont’ event. It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying the lake and partaking in a range of fun and sustainable activities. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful green space right in the heart of Claremont, thanks in large part to the wonderful work of the Friends of Lake Claremont.

There are two Ordinary Council Meetings next month, on Tuesday 5 October and Tuesday 19 October at 7pm. Anyone is welcome to attend council meetings. Details on how to ask a question or make a statement can be found on the Town’s website.  
Aquatic Centre reopening
The works at the Aquatic Centre are nearing completion and we are looking forward to the Centre reopening early October. Both the 25m and 50m pool both have new liners, lane markings and ropes. The tiling has also been replaced in both pools.  Above ground, the entrance and reception area have been completely renovated, making way for a new retail space, coffee window and changing room. Keep an eye out for the opening date on the Town’s website.
School Holiday program
If you are looking for ways to entertain the kids this school holidays bring them to the Town Centre and be enchanted as you follow the Fairy-Tale Trail. Over two days the Town Centre will be transformed into a magical fairy-tale land with fun activities, entertainment and prizes for everyone. Claremont Community Hub and Library will also be a hive of activity these school holidays. From making kazoos to magic wands, creative play and visits from some marvellous minibeasts there is something for all ages and abilities.
Reuse and recycle
Claremont residents have recently been named at the biggest users of the Brockway West Metro Recycling Centre. This is a great achievement and a demonstration of our collective commitment to minimise our impact on the environment. Please remember to separate cardboard from other bulk waste and ensure it is flattened with tape removed if you are disposing of it at the Centre.

Deputy Mayor
