THE City of Glenorchy has bid a warm welcome to 130 new Australians into the community as part of the Glenorchy City Council Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony.

Glenorchy Mayor Kristie Johnston said the City of Glenorchy was the most culturally diverse city in the state.

“It was great to see so many new citizens at the ceremony, which was the city’s largest citizenship ceremony to date,” she said.

“It was a very joyful occasion and a great opportunity to celebrate our cultural diversity and share the stories and heritages of so many different backgrounds.”

The citizenship ceremony featured music from the Glenorchy City Concert Brass and a speech from Australia Day ambassador Dr Christina Henri, whose passion for the female convict story has connected communities throughout Australia and across the globe.
