2019’s Rural Women’s Health Forum via The Rural Naturopath- this year moving online!
Hayley Dawson, Glenthompson local behind the event, said:
“It’s really sad that we can’t run this event in person, but I just couldn’t run a health event that may affect attendees’ health.
We have, however, trialed the online event format with a “calm through chaos” event held in May and had amazing success and feedback.
The event reached people all over Australia which allowed rural women to feel connect and support in such a difficult time.
Now we can support even more rural women and empower them to live happier and healthier lives.
I can’t wait to share the knowledge from all these fantastic speakers with the wider rural community.”
Sheepvention Rural Expo
Our region’s largest event, the mammoth 3-day Sheepvention Rural Expo, has also adapted for the current COVID-19 climate, by ensuring that a key component of the event; the Ram Sale, occurs online on Tuesday August 4.
The sale will be held via the AuctionsPlus platform from 11am, and will include simultaneous and individual sale lots, but still with the unique pen of 5 format of the regular event.
Stay up to date at hamiltonshowgrounds.com.au and keep an eye out for the lift out in the Hamilton Spectator on the 25th July.
