A day out for drought affected women in agriculture
March 27, 2019

Wellington Shire Council is looking for deserving rural women in our community who need or would love a day out!

As part of the work we are doing with drought affected communities, Council in partnership with Lardner Park and the Rotary Club of Sale have passes for the Women in Ag Luncheon at Farm World up for grabs.

Council is seeking women in Wellington to nominate a friend from a drought affected community who is deserving of a day out, for the chance of both of them to win a free day out.

“We have passes for 23 women and their chosen friend to catch a bus from Sale and attend the event, which is held on the first day of Farm World, Thursday 11 April at Lardner Park,” Wellington Mayor Alan Hall said.

“This is a great opportunity for rural women to nominate female friends who could do with a break from the farm and enjoy a day out.

“There is no need to worry about a thing, as long as you are available on that day and can make your way to Sale to catch the bus, everything else will be taken care of.”

The passes are valued at more than $100 each and include entry to Farm World, the luncheon, entertainment, champagne on arrival, a gift bag to take home, return transport to and from Lardner Park from Sale.

Inspiring guest speakers at the event include Melissa Connors from The Farmer Needs a Farmer, Amy Paul from Ruby Hill Organics and Claire Templeton from Square Mile Meats.

Nominations can be made via Council’s Facebook page. Those who don’t have access to Facebook are encouraged to ask a friend who does to assist.

Applications close midday on Friday, 5 April.
