Beware of scammers

We are aware some Home Support clients have been targeted by scammers. Scammers have phoned people informing them their Community Home Services contract has expired and will require a $99 payment to continue. If you receive a call like this please hang up and report it to the Police Assistance Line on 131 444.

Enjoy outdoor spaces

There are plenty of reasons to head outdoors in autumn, particularly with the Castlemaine State Festival kicking off this week.

Council is a proud supporter of this event. To help businesses cater for more diners, we have established temporary outdoor eating and entertainment areas throughout the shire.

Enjoy our most recent pop-up space at Old Bank Corner in Maldon, and keep an eye out for the transformation of Frederick Street in Castlemaine during the festival.
