Mudgee and Rylstone Tourism Meeting

A meeting at the Rylstone Club last Tuesday was attended by nearly 30 people.

Mudgee Region Tourism in partnership with Rylstone Kandos Business set out strategies to growing the visitor economy by specifically identifying targets in the Sydney Region.

Using established demographic knowledge, suburbs can be letter dropped with information about the Cudgegong Valley area.

Advertising is used on TV to get people to visit our region.

The not for profit Mudgee Region Tourism presented an interesting seminar on their future plans.

Charity Shop Donates to VRA

The Rylstone Kandos Volunteer Rescue Squad was formed in 1975.

Covering an area of 4000 square kilometres the squad does primary rescue and assists other services.

Current legislation requires all vehicles on a fire ground, must be diesel powered.

The VRA needs to get a new vehicle to comply and the Charity Shop is helping the VRA fundraising efforts with a cheque of $3000, with more money to follow.

The VRA has been generously supported by the community and needs to raise $50000 to reach their goal.
