We had a really successful day yesterday with a big turn up of organisations including all the main political parties, who are clearly getting ready for the upcoming election.

The weather looked dicey at first following a wet night but it progressively cleared up and by mid-morning there was more sun than clouds.

Our thanks to all who participated and all the residents who took time out of their busy weekends to drop in.

The next Contact Day will be in another 3 months’ time.

Community Contact Day 30 April

The Hackett Community Association is sponsoring another Community Contact Day at the Hackett Shopping Centre from 9 am to approximately 1 pm on 30 April.

Hackett Neighbourhood Watch, Action Buses and Capital Metro, Sustainable Australia and Hackett Preschool (who will also be running a cake stall) have confirmed their attendance. We are awaiting confirmation from a number of other organisations.

Please come along and meet your local committee and other community organisations attending on the day.

Review of Parks and Trees

The Committee is concerned that the trees adjacent to Hackett Oval are now 50 years old and are progressively dying. The Committee is also concerned that many of the parks in Hackett receive minimal support from the Government and that nearly all parks in Hackett do not have official names.

The Committee has formed a sub-group to review the status of the parks and trees and to provide a report to the Committee on the current status and provide recommendations going forward to protect and enhance these important Hackett assets.
