Share your stories Penrith

Monday, 1 June 2020

Penrith Council is inviting local residents to share their stories of strength, resilience and perseverance during the COVID-19 crisis.  

Across a four week period, residents will have the opportunity to share stories and photos on Council’s Have Your Say website:   

Penrith Mayor Ross Fowler OAM said “Penrith is such a resilient City, I’m often amazed and inspired by the stories I hear when talking to residents.”

“This is a great way for these experiences to be shared and to leave an enduring legacy of this time we experienced together. 

“Shared experiences, such as what we’ve experienced, build a deep connection to who we are as people and how we conduct ourselves in the face of adversity. 

“I’d encourage all residents to contribute to this wonderful initiative; look at the weekly theme and either share something on your own or get your immediate family together to pay tribute to our City in a time of crisis,” Cr Fowler said.  

Penrith Stories will commence on Monday 1 June and will run until Sunday 28 June. Each week will feature a different theme of either kindness, courage, gratitude and happiness.  

To participate in the program share your story through your own social media pages and use the hashtag #PenrithStories
