THE Cockburn Community and Cultural Council has celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2009, marked by a special morning tea for the occasion.

Established in 1974, the cultural council’s aim is to sponsor, encourage and promote artistic, cultural and leisure-time activities within the City of Cockburn.

It meets monthly at the old council chambers in Hamilton Hill and is an umbrella organisation for several art and cultural groups operating from the building.

Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said the Cockburn Community and Cultural Council had made a valuable contribution over the past 3½ decades, helping to enrich the lives of residents in the city.

“The cultural council has been at the forefront of promoting arts and culture to the community and should be commended for its efforts over the years,” he said.

“Cultural events support Cockburn as a destination for visitors and, more importantly, contribute to the value of the lifestyle that entices people to live here.”
