A number of public meetings will be held during July for anyone who is interested in getting involved and joining a committee. To find out more visit www.cessnock.nsw.gov.au/Volunteer.


Cessnock City Council Mayor Jay Suvaal said our wonderful volunteers contribute so much to making out community a better place to live, work and play.


“The benefits of volunteering not only extend to the community, but also to the individual who can pick up new skills, meet new people and gain new experiences,” Cr Suvaal said.

“Volunteers play an important role in many aspects of community life, including social, sporting, cultural, and environmental activities. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in being part of, I encourage you to come along to one of the public meetings.”
