Warm welcome for new residents - event cancelled

12 March 2020

Update March 17: This event has been cancelled due to coronavirus precautions.

 

Have you recently moved to the Gunnedah region? Or perhaps you know someone new to town?

Gunnedah Shire Council will extend a warm welcome to our new residents at a Welcome to Gunnedah stall at the Autumn Markets in Wolseley Park on March 21.

New residents, including those who have moved to the Shire within the last two years, are invited to stop by to collect a Welcome to Gunnedah goodie bag, which features a new resident kit and other information about local services and community groups.

A free cup of coffee and conversation with local council members is also on offer, with councillors interested in hearing about how new residents have come to call Gunnedah home.

The Welcome to Gunnedah event is an initiative of Council’s Economic Development Working Group, which hopes to build a connected community that attracts and retains new residents.

Council’s Manager of Economic Development Charlotte Hoddle said she anticipated that collaboration with the Autumn Markets on Harmony Day would see a celebration of diversity and our unique community spirit on full show.

“We know Gunnedah is a wonderful place to live and work, so we want to support our new residents to immerse themselves in the new opportunities available to them,” Ms Hoddle said.

Local businesses, sporting groups and community organisations have been invited to include information or a special offer in the Welcome to Gunnedah goodie bag. A maximum of 50 flyers can be delivered to the Council building in Elgin St or the Visitor Information Centre before March 17.

The Welcome to Gunnedah stall will be at the Autumn Markets in Wolseley Park on March 21 from 9am.
