Strathbogie Shire Council has recently thrown its support behind the Violet Town and District Recognise Group to promote and support the Uluru Statement from the Heart movement and the process for Aboriginal recognition in the Constitution.         

Council endorsed six recommendations at a recent Ordinary Council Meeting that supported the sentiments contained in the Uluru Statement from the Heart, the process for Aboriginal recognition and reform of the Constitution and a referendum to enshrine a First Nations Voice to Federal Parliament.

Council has also resolved to advocate on behalf of its community to promote the need for these processes to provide the Aboriginal community the opportunity to be heard and have discussions about what recognition means for them.

Honeysuckle Creek Ward Councillor Kate Stothers played an instrumental role in pushing for Council to support the initiatives of the Violet Town Recognise Group and said Council has a role to play in advocating on behalf of its community on issues that are important to them.

“The Uluru Statement from the Heart is a powerful piece of work outlining the dispossession and disparity experienced by our First Nations People, but encouragingly, and generously, opens the door for all of us to walk with them on a journey forward,” Cr Stothers said.

Young people of Nagambie will soon benefit from local youth program Engage Nagambie which now has a home and a staff member to drive it.

Andy Bell, recently appointed as Youth Development Officer at Strathbogie Shire Council, said he looks forward to being able to deliver a program that is tailored to the needs of the local community.

“I see a real opportunity to develop a great program for young people in Nagambie and surrounds, accessing existing skills within the community and commencing collaborative projects that will benefit more than just the targeted 12-25 year olds,” Mr Bell said.

The program will operate out of the old Croquet Club building, which will be refurbished in the coming months to include an all abilities toilet, a new kitchen, a chill out zone and an extension of the building by way of a wider verandah on the east side of the building.
