Welcome to the Shire of Broome
Council to meet in Ardyaloon Community
The Broome Shire Council will hold its September 25 Ordinary Meeting in the Ardyaloon (One Arm Point) Community on the Dampier Peninsula.
Broome Shire President, Graeme Campbell, says Council has a policy of holding a meeting each year in an Aboriginal community within the Shire.
"Residents in remote communities have a limited ability to attend Council meetings," Cr Campbell says. "By taking Council meetings to the communities, residents there are able to get a firsthand look at how their Shire Council operates, and to ask questions and raise issues personally with Councillors and senior Shire staff."
The Ordinary Meeting will be held at the Ardyaloon Community Hall from 11am on Thursday 25 September and is open to the public. While on the Dampier Peninsula, Shire Councillors will also visit Country Downs Station to inspect recent bushfire damage and Djarindjin airport to be updated on the current expansion project.
#LoveBroome at the 2014 Perth Royal Show
The whole Broome community is being asked to get on board as ambassadors for their town in the lead-up to this year's Perth Royal Show.
Broome will feature as the Guest Town at the Show from September 27 to October 4, and be showcased to the 450,000 visitors expected to come through the gate. Broome Shire President Graeme Campbell says there had been a great response when the call went out for the community to become involved as sponsors, volunteers and entertainers.
"Now we want everyone in Broome to show their friends and family elsewhere why we love our town, so that they head along to the Broome stand at the Royal Show," Cr Campbell says. "Every time you post a photo to social media, whether it's Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, give it the hashtag '#LoveBroome'."
Planning is also well advanced on the display at the show and it promises to be a spectacular showcase of everything that makes Broome such a desirable place to live, work, invest and holiday.
Organisations involved include the Broome Visitor Centre, Red Sun Camels, Australia's North West Tourism, Kimberley Training Institute, Broome Senior High School, Woodside, Cygnet Bay Pearls, Brolga Developments, H&M Tracey, LJ Hooker, Ray White Real Estate, LandCorp, Roebuck Estate Developments, North West Property Consultants, Broome Weddings, Matso's Broome Brewery, Sadleirs-Nexus, Regional Development Australia, Kimberley Development Commission, Allure South Sea Pearls, Cable Beach Club Resort and Spa, and Broome International Airport.
Akmal is Lost at the Broome Civic Centre!
Hello my name is Akmal and I'm a comedian, although the term 'comedian' is open to interpretation and highly subjective. Believe it or not, many people don't find me funny at all - this includes members of my own family:
"If Akmal thinks he's funny, then I hope he's seeing a psychiatrist." Nabila Saleh
"He should never have left his job at Telstra; he would've been manager by now." Marie Saleh
"I don't think he's funny, in fact I find him rather annoying. Whenever I see him I get an overriding urge to punch him in the face." Steven Huntsman (Akmal's psychiatrist).
Movies, sketch, stand-up, TV, radio and talk-show host, known for his incredible ability to deal with hot topics in an hilarious and slightly offensive way, Akmal is one of Australia's most respected and accomplished comics. Don't miss Akmal's new show LOST.
