Since its inception nine years ago, the Warrumbungle Health and Community Services Expo has grown from strength to strength, and this year’s event on Wednesday, 11 November was no exception.
Held at the Coonabarabran Town Hall, more than 50 agencies attended the community showcase, travelling from Sydney, Wollongong, Parkes, Orange, Dubbo, Gunnedah and locally.
Presented by Warrumbungle Community Care and Warrumbungle Shire Council, organisers were impressed with the response from both service providers and the public.
Numbers through the door were in excess of 400 and the increased turnout ensured the 2015 Expo was the biggest to date.
In addition to the usual services, a large contingent of staff from Catholic Community Care, in Coonamble, carried out health and skin-cancer checks.
Aunty Mary Hooker, a Bundjalung woman and ambassador for the Guide Dogs, was also present at the Expo.
As well as raising awareness, the event continues to be a great networking opportunity for community and health service providers.
Next year will mark the 10th anniversary of the Warrumbungle Health and Community Services Expo.
Planning is already underway for the event, which will be held on Wednesday, 9 November 2016.
Aunty Mary Hooker, Margaret Robinson and Gavin Stait, wrapped up in the gigantic scarf Aunty Mary is knitting for Gulliver, the world’s biggest guide dog.
