Featured Locals

This month we have commenced featuring Local People to add a personal touch to our website and through it increase the sense of community of Hackett. We all know that the essence of life is people and we at the Hackett Community Association have decided to start highlighting on a regular basis the numerous people in our suburb who add to its character.

We have not committed to any particular selection criteria. If anything we believe everyone should be featured in due course as we all add something to what we describe fondly as the suburb of ‘Hackett’.

Readers if you have someone who you think should be featured please let us know through the ‘Contact Us’ link in the Navigation Bar above. For this month we are featuring two local business owners only because one has recently joined us and the other has not been featured before.
