GLEN INNES SET TO HOST 29TH NSW RURAL WOMEN’S GATHERING

Wednesday, 28 September 2022

 

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has welcomed the resumption of the popular NSW Rural Women’s Gatherings following a hiatus during the pandemic, today announcing Glen Innes will host this year’s event.

 

Mr Marshall said Australia’s Celtic Capital would hold a Rural Women’s Dinner and Rural Women’s Day, which is set to bring attendees from right across the state.

 

Hosts of the two events are the Glen Innes Natural Resources Advisory Committee (GLENRAC) and Guyra Evening Country Women’s Association, with support from the State Government and Rural Women’s Network.

 

“Glen Innes is a terrific choice for the resumption of the NSW Rural Women’s Gathering, having so ably undertaken hosting duties back in 2015 for the very successful ‘Gather in the Glen’ event,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“I am confident that the team from GLENRAC with the CWA’s Guyra Evening branch will again be the hosts with the most and stage a fabulous couple of days that showcase our region and warm hospitality.

 

“Events such as these are vital in renewing contacts, friendships and lifting spirits – especially following covid and the isolation that imposed.

 

“I look forward to seeing this wonderful event back in the region.”

 

Women from across regional and rural NSW will convene in Glen Innes for the 29th annual Rural Women’s Gathering next month, ahead of the International Day of Rural Women 2022.

 

Minister for Women, Regional Health and Mental Health Bronnie Taylor said the theme for this year’s event is ‘restoring your colourful self’, with a focus on rebuilding connections after COVID lockdowns.

 

“It’s important to remember when COVID-19 reached our shores, many rural communities were recovering from drought and devastating bushfires. Since then, many of the same communities have sadly also suffered unprecedented floods and even a mouse plague,” Mrs Taylor said.

 

“After all the challenges faced over the past few years, gatherings are even more important for rural women, both personally and professionally.

 

“They help women feel connected and supported, inspired and empowered. They provide an opportunity to learn, grow and celebrate the richness of each other’s experiences.”

 

This year’s Gathering includes a Rural Women’s Evening on Thursday 13 October and Rural Women’s Day on Friday 14 October. To more information or to register, visit www.glenrac.org.au/events-all
