Recognising the year that was
This week I spoke at the Business Leaders Lunch and I was lucky enough to share Maitland’s Year in Review presentation, which looks at what’s been achieved across the city over the last 12 months.
The event, which was held at Maitland Regional Art Gallery on Wednesday, gives our hard working business owners a chance to network and enjoy a tasty lunch, but also meet with Council representatives to find out what work has happened since January and also what’s on the horizon.
Watching the presentation filled me with a sense of pride because it demonstrated how much work Council staff put in this year. In addition to that, I want to recognise the importance of our business leaders and congratulate them on another big year.
Looking ahead, it is an exciting time in Maitland. We have experienced a welcome injection of investment over the last couple of years, with an indoor pool, new sporting complex and final upgrades to The Levee to come. Council will continue this work into 2018, which is shaping up to be just as busy, and every bit exciting.
20 Years On at Maitland Gaol
I also want to mention the great things happening at Maitland Gaol at the moment. January will mark 20 years since Maitland Gaol ceased to operate as a prison and to recognise that, there is lots happening at the facility.
I’m excited to say that I’ll be at the Gaol on Saturday to open Brett Leigh Dicks’ photography exhibition ‘Behind These Walls’ and I encourage you to come along and check it out.
More information about the exhibitions are available here.
