We had an outstanding response from our communities for our one off Local Community Events Program, so much so that we've had to close the funding round early! Thanks to the State Government's Community Drought Support Program, we've been able to deliver $20,000 in funding for 25 community events across the region!
A number of Council Funding Programs are made available throughout the year, for more info visit: www.wdrc.info/grants-and-funding

What a beautiful morning for a bridge opening! Today our community joined Mayor Paul McVeigh to officially mark the completion of the revamped Jacko Cavanagh Bridge. Adding a little touch of romance, the Mayor also invited Mayoress McVeigh to join him in adding their very own love lock to the rails celebrating their soon to be 40 year wedding anniversary!
