Council established the Fabulous Fairfield program as a way of thanking residents who take the time and effort to make our City beautiful.
Tonight we congratulate residents from Abbotsbury, Bonnyrigg Heights, Bossley Park, Cabramatta, Mt Pritchard and St Johns Park.
At this time of year the fruit trees in Fairfield are bountiful with lemons, limes and oranges. They are making an attractive backdrop to the well maintained and sustainable gardens in the City.
Residents are using environmentally sustainable methods of keeping their lawns and gardens lush and green. The use of use of rain water, lawn clippings and compost bins displays commitment by our residents to their gardens.
I would like to congratulate the recipients of the May Fabulous Fairfield awards as the standard this month has been very high.
Tonight, our Fabulous Fairfield residents will receive a native plant grown by the Fairfield Community Native Plant Nursery volunteers. More than 190 different native plants are grown by this group of volunteers, who are based at our Nalawala Urban Sustainability Hub.
Councillors, please join me in congratulating tonight’s winners of the Fabulous Fairfield program.
MAYOR OF FAIRFIELD CITY
