SIXTY-seven people have been welcomed as Australian citizens at a ceremony held by Glenorchy City Council last month.

The city’s newest citizens originally came from 21 different countries around the world including Afghanistan, Bhutan, Eritrea, Nepal, Syria and Wales.

Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas said she was honoured that the new citizens had decided to make Glenorchy their home and share their stories, experiences and culture.

“The Glenorchy municipality prides itself on its cultural diversity and celebration of cultural expression,” Mayor Thomas said.

“Glenorchy is a ‘Welcoming City’ as part of the International Cities network, and recently signed the Refugee Council of Australia declaration that declares the City of Glenorchy a Refugee Welcome Zone.

“We were particularly pleased to be able to hold the citizenship ceremony following Refugee Week, which was acknowledged at the event.”

Council’s next citizenship ceremony will be held in September to mark Australian Citizenship Day.

For more information about citizenship phone the Council on 6216 6800.
