There are some pretty strict rules in place regarding how Council staff can communicate with our community during this time so unfortunately this will be our last email newsletter for a few weeks.
We’ll also be putting a hold on our Facebook pages and other communciations.
But never fear!  We’re still here working away on amazing arts projects for you and we’ll tell you all about them once we get back online.
