Lets light up Warren…

Dust off those old Christmas decorations and bring on the Christmas cheer, the Santa Street competition is on again!!

The idea behind Santa Street started many years ago where each street in Warren was judged on the Christmas decorations and light show displays of houses in the street. The street winner would then have the Santa Street sign erected on their street to show they had the best Christmas street in town.

The judging of Santa Street will be undertaken anytime from Friday, 17th December to Sunday, 19th December 2021 with the winning street announced on Monday, 20th December 2021.  

Why not start talking with your neighbours now and get your decorations and light show up today.

Who will have the coveted Santa Street sign proudly displayed in 2022.

Tour de OROC 2022 Route Announcement

One of the toughest challenges for the organising committee of the biennial Toyota Tour de OROC is deciding on the route for each event. With the Orana Region covering an area of almost 200,000 square kilometres and with only six days to pedal through the region, it is impossible to cover every major town during every event.

After extensive deliberations, the organising committee has decided on an incredibly testing 1,140km route that will provide variety and familiarity which will also cover the four communities that are the largest users of Macquarie Home Stay, the recipient of the fundraising from the event.

The first day pushes off from Mudgee on Monday 21 March with a lunch break at Mendooran followed by an overnight stay in Armatree.

Day 2 continues up the Castlereagh Highway with a lunch stop in Coonamble followed by an overnight stay in Walgett.

The third day heads due West along the Kamilaroi Highway to Brewarrina for lunch then on to Bourke by the end of the day.

The 22-year-old Kidman Way will host the cyclists on the next day as they travel South direct from Bourke to arrive in Cobar.

Day 5 starts with a target of lunch with the Big Bogan in Nyngan before arriving at Warren for an overnight stay.

The last day, Saturday 26 March, will witness riders eating lunch at the Glenn McGrath statue in Narromine followed by the relatively short ride in to Macquarie Home Stay in Dubbo where the tired riders will be greeted by family and friends and supporters.

Data from users of Macquarie Home Stay over the last 12 months shows that 17.7 per cent of all visitors come from the Walgett Shire with Cobar Shire at 13.7 per cent, the Mudgee Local Government Area is next at 12.7 per cent followed by Bourke at 9.4 per cent. It is a well utilised facility that is often completely booked out and needs more funds to continue to expand its capabilities.

The committee sits under the Rotary Club of Dubbo South and long-term Rotary member and organising committee Chair, Mathew Dickerson said, “We have assembled a new committee with an excellent combination of new ideas and experience and the first hurdle has been cleared successfully. We have a route. I feel confident that this committee will meet every challenge over the next seven months and the Toyota Tour de OROC 2021 - 2022 will be another successful event.”

Stay tuned for more information and announcements.

Join Petrea King and learn ways to build resilience and emotional intelligence in our rural communities.

Australians living on the land are some of the most resilient people on earth. But the ability to weather the challenges of rural life comes at a price. Many farming families are emotionally 'tough' and find it difficult to reach out and ask for help.

If your financial, mental and emotional resources are depleted, join us for a workshop to strengthen your resilience and learn practical tools, strategies and skills to live well in challenging circumstances.

"The greatest gift you can give yourself, your children, your family and your community is the gift of your own good physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing".
