ON November 19, Brighton officially celebrated the 150th anniversary of its proclamation as a municipality. In fact, our regular Council meeting last month, and the celebrations at the Brighton Civic Centre, were held 150 years to the day after the very first meeting of the Brighton Council on November 19 1863.
BRIGHTON has launched a new brand designed to identify and market the municipality and region throughout Tasmania and beyond.
The branding was developed by the Brighton Council following extensive research and marketing advice, and can be used by all local businesses, community and sporting groups and events and activities in the municipality.
BRIGHTON last month celebrated the 150th anniversary of its formation as a municipality and the first meeting of its Council.
The historic anniversary was marked by a community celebration at the Brighton Civic Centre, a performance by the Brighton Primary School choir, the unveiling of a commemorative sculpture by local artist Folko Kooper and a montage of photographs spanning 150 years, as well as a reception for representatives of local groups and organisations.
