Larry Lobster Festival 2012 - Saturday 17 November 2012

The Dongara Denison Community Festival Association has put in a tremendous effort in organising this year’s Larry Lobster Festival and I encourage you all to show your support in attending this event - on this Saturday. Committee members, sponsors and volunteers have made a huge effort to incorporate activities, stalls and events for the whole family.

As advised last week, Point Leander Drive will be closed from Hampton Street to Leitch Street (including access from Leitch and William Streets) between 9:30am to 9:00pm to ensure the safety of visitors.

This Festival is a great opportunity for us to showcase what a great place Dongara Denison is to visit and live!

Dongara District High School - Year 12 Leaver's Ceremony

I would like to congratulate all the Year 12 graduating students from Dongara District High School and commend the award winners at the Ceremony held on Friday 2 November 2012.

It is a great achievement to give 12 years of hard work and commitment. We wish everyone all the best in their future endeavours.

Upcoming Road Works at St Dominics Road

I would like to advise of upcoming works on St Dominics Road, scheduled to commence late November 2012 and will continue until late December. Minor interruptions, including road closures may occur while works are being carried out however dates for any road closures will be advised at a later date.

Concerns Raised Regarding Speed Humps at Dongara Health Centre

The Shire has recently received a number of complaints regarding the steep profile of speed humps located within the car park area including the entry road at the Dongara Medical Centre. I wish to clarify that the speed humps are within the Health Centre grounds and were installed by the Department of Health and, therefore, are not the responsibility of the Shire. Complaints raised have been forwarded to the Dongara Eneabba Mingenew Health Service (DEMHS).

Community Emergency Services Manager

The Shires of Irwin, Carnamah and Coorow and the Department of Fire and Emergency Services recently appointed a successful applicant for the position of Community Emergency Services Manager for the three Shires. Mr Kyle Pollitt will be joining the Shire of Irwin (as the host Shire) on 3 December 2012 and is looking forward to commencing in this exciting role!

By way of background, the position involves the provision of volunteer support, emergency management planning, supervision of financial reporting, professional and courteous community liaison, maintaining fire control, undertaking general inspection patrols and attending relevant administration requirements.
