The PHN would like to congratulate the Hunter New England region on its celebration of NAIDOC week. Although many events were postponed due to bad weather it was great to see the community spirit wasn’t dampened.
The Westlake NAIDOC Family Day at Bolton Point featured local artists and musicians, First Nations cultural workshops, food trucks, information stalls, an Elders tent, market stalls, free amusement rides, face painting, sausage sizzle and colour run. Entertainment by DJ BlakerBoy enticed the elders to get up and dance. The community event was proudly supported by Lake Mac Council.
Over to Tamworth, where they held their very first NAIDOC Market day and ‘Family and Community Day’. The Buslines Group proudly displayed ‘Connecting Along the Journey’ on its bus network and provided free transport for the community to attend the event, where the local First Nations Dance Group entertained.
Quirindi celebrated NAIDOC Week indoors due to wet weather. The local First Nations dance group performing at the Family and Community Day.
In Forster Dan Syron and Susan Clarke-Syron held a family reunion at Wallis Lake, celebrating the end of Covid restrictions and family heritage.
