Temora Shire Council has secured $239,651 in funding through the NSW Government’s $25 million Reconnecting Regional NSW – Community Events Program.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the funding will support Council to deliver a range of local events, which will see the community come together and reconnect.
“The planned events are a terrific opportunity to promote greater social cohesion as well as provide an economic boost locally following the COVID-19 lockdowns,” Ms Cooke said.
Temora Shire Mayor Cr Rick Firman said they are delighted to be showcasing a diverse range of events for everyone in the region to enjoy.
“The community will look forward to sporting days, art exhibitions, community fairs, art workshops. You name it, it will be on in Temora,” Cr Firman said.
There will be a total of eight events on offer by local community groups, with the first, T-Light at Lake Centenary, to be held on Saturday August 27th, 2022.
Temora Shire Council will be running a further 11 events later in the year, with more information to be made available at https://temora.com.au/events
The $25 million Reconnecting Regional NSW – Community Events Program is part of the $200 million Regional Recovery Package, designed to support economic and social recovery across regional NSW that will create new jobs and support community events, shows and festivals to boost tourism.
