James Chapman OLY Announced as Lithgow’s 2022 Australia Day Ambassador

By Lithgow City Council
Posted: 19 Dec 2021
Join Australia Day Ambassador James Chapman OLY at Lithgow's Australia Day event at Queen Elizabeth Park Lithgow from 10:00am on Wednesday 26 January 2022.

On Wednesday 26 January 2022 the Lithgow community is encouraged to reflect, respect and celebrate our nation and our people - and especially the strong sense of community in times of adversity. Australia Day 2022 will present a particularly poignant and special opportunity to recognise the resilience of Australians and to focus on what is achieved as a community and nation.

Lithgow's Australia Day Ambassador, James Chapman, will offer inspiration and share his optimistic messages and stories. Known for his achievements in national, international and Olympic rowing, James Chapman is proud to be an Australia Day Ambassador and to join in these community celebrations.

Australia Day Ambassadors generously volunteer their time and share their story at hundreds of community events. Over 30 years, Ambassadors have inspired thousands of people in activities as diverse as the communities themselves, and 2022 will be no different.

Drawing inspiration from our Ambassadors, the Lithgow community is encouraged to make a difference this Australia Day by supporting community businesses. Simple efforts such as arranging restaurant/cafe bookings or buying locally made products will boost the Australia Day spirit.

There will be a full day of activities and events throughout the area including Portland and Wallerawang as well as free entry and live music at J M Robson Aquatic Centre.

For further information about the full list of events check out the Council website.
