A food additives seminar held at Wee Waa High School last week has generated widespread interest while also raising important funds for local schools.

Over the course of two hours, Brisbane-based Home Economist and East Coast’s Additive Alert Community Talk’s presenter Louise D’Allura, helped families learn about food additives, interpreting food labels and alternative food options in an effort to encourage low additive eating. 

The event, ‘Food for a happy and calm community’, was attended by 120 people and raised $2146.80 for local schools.

Parents and teachers who attended the session found it informative.

One of the Organising Committee members, Helen Smith, said the event was a great success.

“Louise shared a lot of information about additives and the effects it can have on our lives and health,” she said.

Local polocrosse player in stable condition following accident

A 17 year old male from Wee Waa was attended to by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter and flown to Newcastle on Sunday following a horse riding accident on a property north east of Narrabri.

He had been competing in a local polocrosse carnival when a high speed collision occurred on the field.

He was immediately attended to by an on-site paramedic and a vet was called to attend to the horse involved.

Three local ambulances attended with the first arriving within 20 minutes of the accident.

Regional Flagship Events Program

Regional Flagship Events Program

The Regional Flagship Events Program supports the marketing of events that play an important role in bringing visitors to regional NSW. Increased visitation can deliver much-needed tourist dollars to communities and strengthen the regional economy. To be funded under the Regional Flagship Events Program, events must have tourism potential and reflect the character and culture of an area and act as a “flagship” for their region.

Destination NSW provides funding in $10,000 one-off grants or triennial funding of $20,000 per year for three years to event organisers to support the marketing and advertising of events.

Since 1996, the NSW Government has provided more than $5.1 million to support more than 235 events in Regional NSW.
