The Committee for the Forbes NSW Rural Women’s Gathering are looking forward to launching their website on Friday, 2 July 2021.
The NSW Rural Women’s Gathering will be held in Forbes between 22 and 24 October 2021. The Committee have been busy planning for the event and can’t wait to show of Forbes and the Central West in October!
The website is a chance to share the framework for the Gathering, accommodation and dining options, workshop options, promote sponsors, engage and encourage and provide information on local attractions…and encourage people to spend some time in the Central West. Central West Lachlan Landcare (CWLL) are pleased to be supporting this fantastic event.
We still have smaller sponsorship options available and are keen to hear from anyone that might be interested in sponsoring an event or workshop. This includes samples or vouchers that can be included in our Gathering Bags. So get thinking!
Speaking of the Gathering Bags…we have had a fantastic team of volunteers working to produce 300 Amazing recycled bags. These bags have been made from recycled fabrics, which are first washed and ironed, sewn together and they have a screen printed front panel with our Gathering logo. Pretty special!
The whole Gathering has a focus on reducing waste that can so quickly become part of large events. We don’t want to host an event that leaves a huge non-biodegradable foot print. It can sometimes be a tricky balance between giving out ‘cool stuff’ or giving out stuff that will just become rubbish.
We are pleased to be holding the Gathering at the iconic Forbes Town Hall and we want to be able to share the fantastic historical venues and spaces that Forbes is so well known for.
On the website we will be sharing information about our fantastic key note speakers and performers. We are so excited to have a fabulous line up for this weekend in Forbes.
Obviously, COVID19 is always in the back of our minds, being the reason that we postponed the event to 2021 in the first place. We will be working with Forbes Shire Council and the Department of Health to ensure that every precaution is taken to keep our regional communities safe and keep our Gathering attendees safe.
