Mayor Tim King's Christmas Message:

It’s at this time of year that many of us take time to reconnect with family and friends and reflect on the past 12 months.

We have again seen how resilient Tasman people are, helping family, friends and neighbours during the major weather events that we faced.

The last three years have shown how much communities rely on the often-unsung members of our community that work in our service industries and business.

In addition, thanks to the hundreds of volunteers that commit their own time to a broad range of community groups, from emergency services to sport and recreation and cultural and environmental research groups who provide value beyond what we could ever pay for. While some of these people are officially recognised from time to time, now is an opportunity to appreciate the value all of them add to our community. 

I would like to thank the people of Tasman who have taken the time to engage with us throughout the year. I reckon an engaged and committed population is the key to a healthy democracy and is always welcome. 

We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. One that we share with thousands of others over the holidays, and it is not a hard place to relax and appreciate what we have. Best of all, we don’t have to go home after the holidays. 

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing and whoever you are with, take the time to chill out and enjoy the summer season in Tasman and all the best for 2023.
