As with every year, a huge range of activities have been planned in Cessnock including welcoming Australia’s newest citizens, recognition of community members for outstanding work, sharing a bite to eat and the annual Mayoral Cup Cricket!
The day kicks off with a Citizenship Ceremony and the Australia Day Awards at the East Cessnock Bowling Club from 10am to 12pm, with these official proceedings followed by a free barbecue lunch from 12pm to 2pm at East End Oval, Victoria Street.
The Mayor’s Cricket Match begins at 12.30pm, concluding with the presentation of the trophy at about 3.30pm. As usual, the weather is likely to be warm so be sure you take a hat, sunscreen and a chair to sit on for the oval activities.
