The Federal Member for Bennelong, John Alexander, is encouraging locals to get involved in events during Australian Heritage Week from April 12th-20th.
Australian Heritage Week is an annual national celebration of the places, buildings, landscapes and stories of our local communities and provides a link to our nation’s heritage.
“Local groups and communities in Bennelong can get involved by planning and hosting activities to showcase the unique heritage within our area,” said Mr Alexander.
Groups and organisations can register their events on the Heritage Week website: http://heritage-week.govspace.gov.au/.
“Everyone who wants to share and celebrate what makes Bennelong special can share their event on the site. I encourage everyone in the community to find the best way to showcase our local area to the rest of Australia,” said Mr Alexander.
Last year’s event highlights included heritage walks, concerts in the park, community fairs and festivals, tours of historic buildings and places, and hands-on activities for children.
