Brimbank's Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony was once again huge with 220 people becoming new Australian citizens. The ceremony was attended by opposition leader, Bill Shorten. With entertainment and a community BBQ it was a great day all round!

Ambulance Victoria staked their claim in Sunshine announcing their Ballarat Road headquarters would get a $1.9 million upgrade to be the largest metropolitan branch.

The "facelift" of St Albans Leisure Centre's change rooms got underway. Renovations are expected to take approximately 12 weeks.
