Spring is here and it’s  an exciting time in the Central West. There are a number of NSW Government grants which close at the end of the month, this includes the popular Stronger Country Communities Fund. I encourage all community groups to take up these opportunities when they arise. RDA Central West is happy to support applicants by providing general advice on grant applications, and the process for submission.

All budding photographers in our region should also make the most of the recently launched ‘Central West is Best’ photography competition. This provides an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the people, the produce and passionate communities which make our region so great.

Lastly, I must congratulate all involved with the STEM Industry School Partnerships Program across the Central West which was recently recognised through the 2019 NSW Minister’s and Secretary’s Awards for Excellence.
