It’s a big month for the Belconnen Community Council. We’re very pleased to launch our new website which you can still find at the usual address: www.belcouncil.org.au. While we’re still tinkering around the edges, we’re very proud of it and love that we’re still able to show off David Burke’s fantastic photography. Please check it out.
New contact email address for BCC
We’ve also updated the way our e-mails work. The old e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org is no longer in use. If you wish to contact us, please use email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
