Holiday arrangements for the Scone Cup are possible only with the support of the Upper Hunter community.
It's time again to put your
views by completing a short online survey for the Upper Hunter Shire Council.
Each year Council is required to seek community views and then make a request to the NSW Minister for Industrial Relations who determines arrangements for local public holidays.
In previous surveys most respondents supported the existing half day public holiday on the Friday of the Scone Cup. This has applied to Aberdeen, Blandford, Bunnan, Ellerston, Gundy, Moonan Brook, Murrurundi, Parkville, Scone, Rouchel, Timor and Wingen.
In the past the holiday arrangements have not applied to the Merriwa and Cassilis districts but that could change if there is community support.
Individuals, businesses and organisations are encouraged to have their say by completing an online survey.
The survey asks:
Residents, businesses and organisations are also encouraged to put their views by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or writing to the General Manager, Upper Hunter Shire Council, at PO Box 208, Scone 2337.
Council will also contact stakeholders such as schools, businesses, chambers of commerce and banks for their views.
Feedback must be received by Friday 11 November 2016.
The 2017 Emirates Park Scone Cup Carnival will be held on Friday 12 May and Saturday 13 May 2017.
