Lamine Sonko, African Culture Keeper and his band will be performing  as well as some well known Bourke Street buskers.

Locals have the opportunity to sell their produce and there will be lots for the kids – jumping castle, face painters, scarf juggler and much more………

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day was celebrated in earnest at the Wedderburn Community House recently.

More than 30 people gathered to view cultural displays from Spain, India, the United Arab Emirates and Papua New Guinea, before settling in for a hearty lunch that featured Italian, French, German, Chinese and Greek food. The frequency with which people returned to the food table was proof enough that the fare was thoroughly enjoyed. As people ate they were entertained with classical guitar and Flamenco, provided by retired music teacher and Wedderburn local, Bill Foreman. Mr Foreman spent 18 months in Spain in the early 1970s studying Flamenco, a form of Spanish folk music. He played on an authentic Flamenco guitar that be purchased in Spain dining his stay, while he also played mouth organ for The Gypsy Girl – a song he wrote about his daughter – and Waltzing Matilda, for which everyone joined in with gusto.

The Loddon Healthy Minds Network is auspiced by Loddon Shire Council and was formed in 2007 to actively purse mental health issues as they relate to residents of the Loddon Shire Council.  

The networks vision is to promote and advocate for improved wellbeing and access to appropriate services for people in Loddon Shire affected by mental health issues. To promote emotional wellbeing and good mental health across the Loddon community. 

We do this by building an awareness with the general public, educating people experiencing mental health issues and their carers about services available. We advocate on behalf of the whole community to improve mental health support and promote the Network and its services in the Loddon Shire. 

The Healthy Minds Network has developed a website and I am writing to request the placement of a link to the Loddon Healthy Minds Website on your webpage. This would further assist the network in the promotion of the website at a local level.
