Council celebrates our community stories


Wednesday, 27 July 2016


Central Coast Council is recognising the community members who shared their stories as part of a year-long campaign that highlighted the Coast as a great place to live, work and play.

Tagged Wyong Alive, the campaign was run as part of the 2015-16 Year of the Community and has been collated into a book to showcase the vibrant and diverse characters in our community.

Council’s Community Partnerships and Planning Manager, Ms Julie Vaughan, said the past 12 months has showcased everyday people doing what they love best on the Coast.

“Through Wyong Alive, we brought to life the stories of everyday people and have captured the overall journey in a book,” Julie said.

“The book, Wyong Alive – The Story so Far, gives a special insight into our unique community and highlights the vast array of activities, places, traditions and personalities that make up our community.

“Each month community members appeared in a number of different features such as history, sport, volunteers, entrepreneurs, creative arts, positive ageing, future leaders, Indigenous and more all shared through the Wyong Alive website, various mainstream and social media.

“The book celebrates the stories of our community and everyone who told their story will receive a copy of the book to share with their family and friends.

“We will be expanding the concept this year with Coast Alive giving monthly snapshots of the lives of people in our wider Central Coast community.

Wyong Alive has proved to be a successful campaign and has been recognised as a great way to build pride within a local community.”
