More Devenish silo art

Devenish’s latest work of art was unveiled at the weekend, before a packed Anzac Day commemorative service.

State Member for Euroa Steph Ryan officially opened the painting of a Lighthorse soldier and his horse.

The work was created by Melbourne-based street artist Cam Scale on the side of the town’s steel grain silo, next to last year’s painting of two army nurses — one from World War I and the other from the modern day.

An estimated 2000 people attended the event, lining the streets for a 1920s-themed parade, led by three veterans Andrew Woods, Tom Trewin and Jarrod Lidgerwood.

Women’s charter

The Greater Shepparton Women’s Charter Advisory Committee is calling for nominations from residents to fill vacant positions on the committee.

The committee consists of community members and representatives from Greater Shepparton City Council, including charter champion Cr Seema Abdullah.

The volunteer committee acts as a strategic advisory committee to the council, aiming to promote women in leadership and decision-making.

Cr Abdullah encouraged people to get involved and apply.

‘‘One of the key principles of the committee is diversity, and it aims to have membership that reflects the diverse community of our region. It is important that the voices of women — as well as men — are heard regarding the opportunities and issues affecting women in Greater Shepparton,’’ she said.

To apply, go online at greatershepparton.com.au, email [email protected] or visit Greater Shepparton City Council’s offices at 90 Welsford St, Shepparton. Applications will be received until 5pm Monday, May 13.
