Council newsletters

ShireLife newsletter

Our ShireLife newsletter is a resident newsletter covering Council projects, services, events and activities happening throughout the Macedon Ranges.

Sign up to receive Shire Life via email for your chance to win!

In 2018, we will deliver some of our Shire Life editions electronically, straight to your email inbox. To help us make this change, we need residents to sign up with their email address.

This change means we can deliver news to you faster, making it more up- to-date. By printing less editions, we can also reduce our carbon footprint.

Sign up before 31 January for your chance to win a family pass to a performance at the Kyneton Town Hall during the 2018/19 season or a 10 pass adult swim or gym card to be used at one of our aquatic and fitness facilities.
