Migration roundtable to address skills shortage

RDA Orana will host a two-day discussion focussed on migration as part of the organisation’s commitment to regional workforce shortages.

“Locally-led migration strategies have provided a response to issues facing rural and regional communities, including shifts in workforce and population,” RDA Orana Director for Regional Development Megan Dixon said.

The event will begin with an employer forum to discuss visa options for employers who may be interested in hiring migrant workers. This will be followed by a workshop about migrant experiences and a roundtable to look at regional settlement.

Walgett Shire Markets -Christmas

After the “Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” at our last markets in September with that awful wind, we have regrouped and decided to put on a final market for 2019.

We have decided to run a little earlier than normal hoping we can start everyone off with their Christmas shopping and avoid clashing with other markets in our area.

We have added some entertainment, raffles, some good food options and even a visit from Santa so we hope you can join us and make our last markets in 2019 a resounding success.

Don’t forget it is FREE to have a stall at Walgett!

Please share with anyone who may be interested in participating.
