A letter from our Chairperson…
We in Peterborough (located in the mid-north) are so excited to have been given the opportunity to host the 2020 SA Rural Women’s Gathering. The dates are set – 23rd to 25th October in our historic Peterborough Town Hall. Online registrations will open in May/June so please make a note in your diary.
Our theme for the event is ‘Buy a Ticket! Take the Ride.’ Focusing on ‘Courage – Resilience – Strength’
A group of around 20 women proactive in seeing the town thrive have come together to organise a weekend full of interesting workshops, guest speakers and best of all a great menu. Since it was announced many ladies have been in touch who have attended previous gatherings to give feedback of their experience in the hope it helps our organising team. Margaret Howie and organisers of previous events are right there to provide support.
Accommodation is gradually filling which is great to see. If you have any questions regarding accommodation, please contact Shirley Dearlove on 08 8651 3355 who can assist you. The town hosts a stunning caravan park, 3 motels and 2 hotels standing by for your bookings. For those who have RVs or fully self-contained caravans can make use of our large free RV park at the end of town.
Workshops are a key area for this event and are in the final planning stage. A range of activities by our local community who have ‘jumped onboard’ with gusto cover a variety of areas and we hope you take away new skills or refresh old ones.
The Gala Dinner Keynote Speaker is in the booking process and the entertainment for the evening secured as well – make sure you bring your dancing shoes!
The Town Hall decorations group are doing a marvellous job and the venue will be quite stunning. These ladies have style and experience as they were the decorators of the hall for debutante balls.
Sponsorship requests are ongoing and are being managed by Judy Evans and Julie Chapman. If you know of any industry or business keen to sponsor the Gathering please feel free to forward details to Judy: firstname.lastname@example.org or Julie: email@example.com
We as a group hope that the event will be one to remember and that you make new friends and memories. We look forward to greeting you in October.
