Town Hall project gives local apprentice career opportunity

Published on 11 June 2021


Eighteen year old Deniliquin man Kelsey Wesierski has joined the team working on Council’s Civic Plaza as an apprentice carpenter.

Kelsey, the son of Allison Sneddon and Mark Wesierski finished his studies at Deniliquin High School in 2019 before joining the workforce in a log yard in Goulburn and working as a rouseabout with a shearing team.

However his strong interest in timber led him to apply for an apprenticehip with Damien and Lisa Reid of Absolute Contractors, based in Koyuga.

Edward River Council mayor Norm Brennan said Council was committed to supporting local industry and suppliers with all its projects and said he was delighted the Town Hall project has resulted in a local  youth getting an apprenticeship.

“Kelsey is really just starting his career and the fact he is working on one of Council’s biggest projects is fantastic,” Cr. Brennan said.
