Newman lights up!

The Christmas season kicks off in the Shire of East Pilbara with the lighting of the Christmas Tree in Newman.
The Newman community flocked to the Shire of East Pilbara Administration Centre to see the lighting of the Christmas Tree, kicking off the beginning of several weeks of Christmas celebrations in the town.

Councillor Anita Grace addressed the guests, highlighting some of the Shire's achievements throughout the year.

"2018 has been an unforgettable year! We’ve celebrated many achievements, welcomed new faces, and enjoyed some of our most successful festivals and events," said Cr. Grace.

"Some of the major highlights from the year include the hugely successful Reconciliation Week as well as the Reconciliation Ball which was a sold out event, not to mention the Outback Fusion Festival in September which was nothing short of amazing!"

"Additionally, dozens of streets and pavements in Newman have undergone significant improvements resulting in much better conditions for traffic and pedestrians."

"On behalf of my fellow councillors, we extend our best wishes all our residents for a safe and prosperous Christmas and New Year and we look forward to serving you in 2019," she added.

She also thanked Newman Volunteer Fire and Rescue for their support with transporting Santa Claus and his elf in one of their fire trucks.
