Devonport council dishes up 50+ years ratepayers luncheon

Devonport City Council is set to dish up a luncheon for residents who have been ratepayers in the City for more than 50 years.  

This will be the sixth year Council has hosted the event, which forms part of a week-long series of events to celebrate Tasmania’s Seniors Week.

The luncheon will be held in the paranaple convention centre, Level 3, 137 Rooke Street Devonport, on Monday 11 October, from noon to 1.30pm.

Devonport Mayor, Annette Rockliff said the luncheon was a great way for Council to acknowledge and honour long-term ratepayers.

“Seniors Week is a particularly wonderful time in Devonport, and we always look forward to seeing Seniors out and about meeting new and old friends,” said Mayor Rockliff.

Seniors Week will be celebrated this year from Monday 11 – Sunday 17 October with the theme of “friendship”. A full calendar of community-run Seniors Week events will be released at the beginning of October.

Registrations for the ratepayer lunch are essential. Eligible residents can book to attend by phoning 6424 0511 or via email to council@devonport.tas.gov.au.  Bookings are required by 4 October for planning purposes. 

For more information on the Seniors Week Calendar of Events and the 50-plus years ratepayer lunch email council@devonport.tas.gov.au.
