  In these days of uncertainty it is important to stay calm and as safe as possible. We can all do this by listening and acting on the advice from the health authorities (re personal hygiene and social distancing protocols ) and announcements from the NT and Australian governments.   This is also the time to be considerate and mindful of everyone in our community. It is the time to support our local businesses, farmers and fellow shoppers. Be kind, be generous, focus on keeping our economy moving forward. Keeping Litchfield, ‘the best place to live in the Top End’… Welcoming - Diverse - Connected.
