BEGA will become a Mecca for women today (Tuesday) when the Women on Wheels tour rolls into town.
The program is a NSW Government initiative to give women in regional and rural communities access to services.
A number of government and non-government agencies will be represented, listening to local ideas and the concerns of local women.
Activities will include a sports needs forum for schoolgirls at Bega High School; a workshop for women interested in further developing their community, at the Bega Valley Shire Council; a yarn-up and lunch for Aboriginal women in the town hall; a forum for women with disabilities in the Bega Valley Shire Council; an information session for women who want to be more physically active, at the Bega Valley Shire Council; a women’s lunch in the Bega Valley Shire Regional Gallery; and a seminar for businesswomen at Sertec in the evening.
Local identity, Mrs Alice Otton, 102, will be at the Bega Library in Zingel Place from 1.30pm tomorrow and local residents are being invited to hear her speak about her life in the region.
Her talk will be recorded and added to the library’s oral history collection.
The talk has been organised to coincide with the ‘Women on Wheels’ tour.
