A Warm Welcome for New Citizens

New Australian Citizens were welcomed to the City of Mitcham in a different way after the cancellation of our traditional Citizenship Ceremonies due to COVID-19 regulations.

Welcome packs that included a letter from Mayor Dr Heather Holmes-Ross, Australian native lilly pilly jam representing Australia’s Traditional Owners, native plant seeds symbolising hope that our new citizens will settle here and grow their roots to be an integral part of community and a 2020 commemorative coin were delivered to 115 new citizens.

The packs were put together by a group of volunteers and staff at City of Mitcham’s Civic Centre.

We hope to recommence our Citizenship Ceremonies later in the year.
