Over the last few months, the Multicultural Council has been carrying out its commitment to the community a little differently. We had our first meeting last month, with restrictions and hope as the COVID situation keeps improving it can continue to get back to 'normal'.
Given that the October is still quite a while away, at our meeting we decided to work towards holding the Multicultural Festival.
If the situation keeps improving the community and visitors would enjoy a fun day after the anxiety that COVID has created for everyone, however, if the situation changes then the festival will be rescheduled to another time.
In the meantime, stallholders, participants and performers, keep planning for the festival.
Griffith City Council has put on display the proposed plan for the new Griffith Cemetery for the next few weeks.
This is an important future facility for the Griffith community and so it is important that you have your say. It can be a few a lines in an email or a letter, either way have your say.
Check out the proposal and put in a submission to the council, whether as an individual or as a group.
Although the world has changed much because of COVID, life keeps moving on and as the world keeps moving towards a more natural environment, it was interesting to note that; in the last three weeks, the world's one-millionth public electric vehicle outlet was installed, Germany made it mandatory for all gas stations to include electric chargers, and the EU committed to one million public chargers by 2025.
