In the best interest of the safety, health and wellbeing of the Hobsons Bay community, Council staff and volunteers in the midst of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Council has made the difficult decision to suspend many of its volunteer programs.

As such, we are not recruiting volunteers at this time.

Please continue to monitor this website for updates.
