You are once again invited to be a part of the ‘Building our Warrumbungle Communities’ project’, now that the incidence of Covid-19 and state border closures have settled.

Renowned rural community renewal expert, Peter Kenyon, from Bank of Ideas will now conduct community planning events throughout the Shire in May 2021. Peter is looking to talk with everyone, young and old, about what our communities need to prosper. Through motivational storytelling, observation and research tools, Peter will facilitate conversations and discussions to develop ideas and planning for the future.

Everyone is welcome to attend any of these events to be held throughout the Shire. 

 

We have redrawn the program to include in each Shire community a longer major function,

a Community Futures Workshop, sometimes combining several smaller events and creating an opportunity for more people to take part in discussions and planning,

 

The exception will be Coolah where Peter Kenyon conducted a similar program several years ago.

Instead, Coolah will host a special workshop to which all residents are invited, designed to develop skills in community building. Please consider!!
