New event series for women in farming

NSW Farmers has launched a new series of events across rural and regional NSW to provide women in agriculture with the networking and upskilling opportunities required to fast track their professional development in the sector.

I read the article in The Echo of December 30 about problems arising from the lack of signage on the new highway and as a visitor to the area I completely agree.

We found it difficult to find our way to our holiday accommodation at one of the coastal villages, and at the end of a long frustrating journey from southern NSW it was the last thing we anticipated as we know this area quite well. We sympathise with businesses that have suffered as a result and hope the problem is rectified quickly.
