Cumberland's brand in action across the area

You would have already seen Cumberland's new brand popping up in the last few
months, such as on your rates notice and at parks and facilities. 
The recently opened Auburn Ruth Everuss  Aquatic Centre was one of the first  buildings to bear the new brand as you can see it in picture below.

The roll out is continuing so keep an eye out for the new colours on welcome signs at the main entry points to the area and on local community centres and libraries. 

Remember to send through feedback on everything Council does, whether it be the brand or anything else, at the contact us page of the Cumberland website. 

There are also a number of plans, strategies and development applications regularly on public exhibition. Check out whats going on in your area and have your say by clicking here.

   Over the coming months you will see our distinctive brand on more and more Council assets.  
Know your history: Prospect Hill Reconciliation
Since 2010, under the former Holroyd City Council and now under Cumberland Council, commemorations have been held to mark the first recorded act of reconciliation between Darug land owners and European settlers . Do you know the remarkable story behind this event in your own backyard? 
As part of National Reconciliation Week Jane Elias, Local Studies Librarian and author of 'Pictorial History Holroyd',  spoke with Mornings on ABC Radio about the event's national significance. Learn more here.

Prospect Hill can arguably claim to be the birthplace of the Reconciliation Movement due to the events of 1805.  

Aquatic Centre on track for five star safety rating

The Auburn Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre has been awarded a Safety Score of 90%  by the independent safety auditor Royal Life. With the renovated Centre only two months old, the score puts the facility on track for a five star safety rating.  
The fantastic result is just another reason to get down to the Aquatic Centre. Foundation memberships are still available for a limited time. For more info click here.

Something for everyone at the Auburn Ruth Everuss Aquatic Centre.
