BRIGHTON Mayor Tony Foster and the Council have extended good wishes to the community for a safe and happy festive season.
Cr Foster said while the lead up to Christmas was always busy, he hoped that the people of the community had the opportunity to relax and enjoy the celebrations.
“The festive season is a period to enjoy time with family, to reflect on the achievements of the past 12 months and look forward to what the new year may offer,” Cr Foster said.
“On behalf of Council I wish our community well and trust that everyone can enjoy this special time of year.
“I thank our ratepayers and community for their support over the past year and undertake to continue our efforts to maintain the Brighton Municipality as a great place to live and bring up a family.”
Cr Foster paid a special tribute to the local police and emergency service personnel.
“As we relax and enjoy ourselves at this time, spare a thought for our police, fire and emergency services people, as well as doctors and nurses who may be called on over the coming weeks.
“So let’s have a safe and happy Christmas and new year so these people can also enjoy a relaxed festive season,” Cr Foster said.
