We have started to light up Warren for Christmas. Well, done to the Warren Chamber of Commerce for the new Christmas Tree that has been installed in front of the new Community Room in Dubbo Street. A great initiative and praise should go to Ryan Mason from Ryan Mason Engineering and all the other participants and helpers to bring it to fruition.
All the Council Christmas star decorations have now been distributed to Warren businesses for display in their windows. Santa Street competition, here we come.
The Warren Youth Foundation will be hosting the Community Christmas Party on Friday 17th December 2021 at the Warren Youth Centre and Community Hub in Burton Street, Warren commencing at 5.00pm.

The 2021 Carols by Candlelight will take place in Macquarie Park on Saturday 18th December 2021 from 6.00pm with carols singing commencing at 7.00pm. So let all of us have a great night of it.

Council has implemented a new Request for Quotation (RFQ) Platform in partnership with VendorPanel with the new system used to seek local suppliers and invite them to quote on the provision of goods and services for Council.
