"Team Colyton"

Team Colyton was launched at Colyton Neighbourhood Centre on the weekend. Residents, community organisations and local business in the community joined Penrith Councils Neighbourhood Renewal Team and special guests Councillor Jackie Greenow and Prue Car, MP in sharing stories, aspirations for their suburb and meeting their neighbours, not to mention enjoying a gourmet lunch and a bit fun for the kids. The launch of Team Colyton was celebrated with its very own cake and in the moment the cake was cut, a sense of pride and ownership of their Colyton community was felt.

Team Colyton is open to anyone who lives or works in Colyton, and has a passion to build on things they love about their suburb and work together on the things they’d like to see improved. The team will include local residents, community services, schools, businesses and Council. The first meeting was held on Tuesday night 18th August at the Neighbourhood Centre. Residents and community organisations were well represented joining to share their ideas and thoughts about where Team Colyton would go next.

And so the journey begins. You’re invited to join us and become a part of Team Colyton and help shape the future of your suburb. The next Team Colyton meeting will be held on Tuesday 1st September at Colyton Neighbourhood Centre (Cnr Jensen and Willoughby St) Colyton from 6pm-8pm.
