Unley Publications : Unley Life Summer 2016
It’s the most exciting time of the year with a great summer program of events ahead of us, many sponsored or supported by your Council. The headline event will be the Unley Gourmet Gala and Host works Stage 1 Start of the Santos Tour Down Under. We have been hosting stage starts since 1999 but this year we’re extremely excited to be hosting the official race start for the first time - the race starts here! There’s much more in store, of course, and one of my favourites is the Ignite Outdoor Cinema program held at various locations around Unley. Bring your bean bags and popcorn. We’ll tell you more about other events inside this issue of Unley Life. While we’re talking about terrific events in Unley, let’s all congratulate the iconic Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market, which has just celebrated its 10th anniversary. Each Sunday the market attracts about 6,000 shoppers keen to buy the best quality seasonal produce and suppor t farmers and producers across South Australia - no wonder it’s been acclaimed as the best farmers’ market in Australia. Not only is it a wonderful resource for local residents, but it brings people into our city and enables them to bet ter appreciate our many at tractions. And as we get ready to welcome 2017, I’d like to draw your at tention to Council’s recently published 2015-16 Annual Repor t - basically our report card that summarises all of Council’s activities over the year. One of the great joys of working in local government is seeing how council programs go directly to the heart of the community, bringing new benefits and quality of life to many thousands of our residents. You might be surprised to discover how many of Council’s activities have a positive impact on our lives. As we get set to enjoy summer, bring out the shady hats, slap on the sunscreen and head into our parks and streets to enjoy all the outdoor activities Unley has to offer. On behalf of my fellow Councillors and Unley Council staff, I wish you a safe and happy Christmas.
