News: Bringing the cemetery back to life

Council is seeking expressions of interest (EoI) from community volunteers for a ‘Friends of the Cemetery’ group.

Posted: Tuesday, 13 September 2016

The iconic Tennant Creek Cemetery is a large area with high visibility to local residents and travellers alike, and Council is seeking to foster civic pride by providing opportunities for people to contribute to the maintenance and up-keep of the cemetery as well as provide input for landscape design of the site.
Community members can play a part in improving the general appearance of the site by taking a hands-on approach to tidy up the grounds, provide shade and water, set up chairs at funerals and contributing to landscape design.
Please address your EoI as ‘Friends of the Cemetery Committee’ and submit to the Acting CEO Chris Wright, either at Council reception, 41 Peko Road, or email
Deadline for submissions is COB Friday, 14 October 2016.
