Nominations for Cessnock Hall of Fame now open

Nominations for the City of Cessnock Hall of Fame are now open. Cessnock City Council encourages community residents to get their nominations in, and put forward a deserving local for the title.

The City of Cessnock Hall of Fame celebrates individuals and families who have attained tremendous achievements in their chosen field and have a strong association with the Cessnock Local Government Area.

The Hall of Fame has six categories of recognition including Arts, Sport, Public Service, Science, Business, and Meritorious Families.

Previous inductees to the City of Cessnock Hall of Fame include Federal Member for the Hunter, Dan Repacholi for his successful sport shooting career, and Uncle Les Elvin for his distinguished efforts towards education and art for Cessnock City’s Aboriginal community.

Cessnock City Council Mayor, Jay Suvaal said the Hall of Fame was a wonderful opportunity to recognise exceptional individuals in our community.

“The Cessnock LGA is home to so many talented people and the Hall of Fame is one of the ways we pay tribute to these high achievers. I encourage residents who can think of someone who deserves to be recognised to get a nomination in,” Jay said.

“Those who are inducted in the Hall of Fame are recognised on the Wall of Fame at the Cessnock Performing Arts Centre, and on commemorative plaques in gardens across the LGA.”

Following the nomination period, a City of Cessnock Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place in early 2023.

Nominations are open until 5:00 pm on Friday 11 November.

Cessnock City Council

Local government has been in operation in the Cessnock area since 1906 when the Shire of Cessnock held its first meeting. During the following years there were several amalgamations and splits as new Shires were formed and reshaped until Cessnock was declared a City in 1958.

Cessnock City Council provides a diverse range of services and facilities for the residents of the LGA as well as visitors to the area.
