THE past decade has seen considerable community activity and development in Bridgewater and Gagebrook and with the current growth and exciting development planned for the future, it is important that we do not lose the impetus that has been built up.
We must build on the accomplishments achieved under the leadership of Kris Fitzpatrick and more recently, through our community liaison officer John Klug. This work has provided an excellent conduit between the community and Council and has established a solid foundation for future community activity and progress.

BRIGHTON Council is looking after the needs of its residents and the environment by rolling out new yellow and green 240-litre recycling bins on September 1.
The new bins will replace the crates householders currently use for recyclables such as old newspapers, magazines and cardboard, as well as empty milk cartons, bottles and cans. The crates can hold only 60 litres of recyclables, which is one quarter of the capacity of the new bins, and residents have to carry them to the kerbside every week.

ATHLETICS Tasmania is once again organising some major cross country events at the Pontville Equestrian and Sporting Complex, with more than 1000 runners set to take on the challenging course, over three days of competition.
DURING the first week of the school holidays, the Bridgewater PCYC along with the Clarence PCYC teamed up with players from the Clarence and Glenorchy Football Clubs as well as a few Tassie Mariners to hold a footy clinic at Bellerive Oval.
It was a fantastic day where more than 150 kids attended and learned some important skills and knowledge of the game by some up coming talent the state has to offer. The Bridgewater PCYC took two buses of local kids to attend the clinic.

THE decision by the Tasmanian Government to release a management plan for the important Aboriginal heritage areas near the new Brighton Bypass is fantastic news for our municipality (see story on the Home Page).
The Bypass construction was halted earlier this year when significant and historical remains were located near the route of the Bypass. Since that time consultation has taken place with all parties to determine an outcome that would see the completion of the Bypass while at the same time, ensure that this area of cultural and historical significance remains undisturbed.
