Chair Administrator Lydia Wilson said the event was part of a program of community engagement activities.

“Administrators are committed to getting out and about across the municipality, listening to our community,” she said.

“This event brings one of our monthly Council Meetings to the community to make it more accessible for local people to attend,” she said.

“And we’ll be there an hour early to chat and mingle with our residents.”

Administrators are also hosting monthly Coffee with Council sessions across the City of Whittlesea.

“We really enjoy getting out and about and seeing what is happening in our local community and hearing from local voices,” she said.
