Mayor’s Message – 17 September 2019


Mayor’s Message – 17 September 2019

It was great to hear last week that the Devonport Chess Club has been officially revived.

The club will meet on the second and fourth Tuesday each month during school term at the East Devonport Community House, 106 David Street, East Devonport, from 6 p.m.

Regular attendees will be registered with the Tasmanian Chess Association and the cost will be $3 per evening for senior players and $2 for juniors.

The funds will be used to support community outreach programmes organised by the Community House.

The first session will be held on 22 October and after that on 12 and 26 November and 10 December.


Don’t forget, the Hungry Jack’s NBL Blitz is coming to Devonport on Friday night with South East Melbourne Phoenix taking on the Sydney Kings at the Devonport Basketball Stadium.

Doors will open at 6.30 p.m. with the tip-off at 7.30.

Tickets are available online through the NBL.

I hope that basketball fans will get out and support this game to show how popular the sport is in Devonport and hopefully lead to more NBL games coming to the region in the future.


Seniors Week will be held 14-20 October and the Devonport City Council is once again celebrating Seniors Week within the Devonport region with the largest calendar of events produced for the weeklong celebration.

Council is working with several organisations to provide a broad range of activities and events to suit all seniors within the Devonport community.

The calendar is jam-packed with over 50 events for seniors to attend. Some events do require booking in advance and payment while others are drop in on the day and free.

The program has been designed specifically to be low cost and offers a wide range of activities to cater for all seniors within the community.

The full program of events can be downloaded from Council’s website or Facebook page.
