Hope you haven't missed
us too much!
As of today we are back in full swing!
Hope to see you all in here soon.
Our Christmas Activities for this year includes Christmas Pom Poms, Christmas Tree making, and Snow Globes. We split the activities into two days, overall we had 6 children attend. By far their favourite was Snow globes.
The Pom Poms were fun, with the children making Santa's, Snowmen and Reindeer.
Our Trees were cut out of card and cut so they could stand, then were decorated in glitter, paper, string, sequins, crepe paper and coloured in with textas and pencils.
Lastly, the children created Angels, Santa's and Christmas Trees for their snow globes.
The Children Always have fun at our Christmas activities this year was no exception, lots of laughter and fun.
We had 3 adults during the day making their Christmas cards for the year. We had some very creative designs. I am sure the recipients of these cards are going to be impressed.
Then after school, we had 4 kids come in to make cards or their parents and siblings. They had a wonderful time and I am sure their parents are going to enjoy the cards that were made!
What a success this day turned out to be.
We had 19 stall holders ranging from cleaning products, to card making, to home decor.
We estimate that we had about 60 - 70 people through the doors.
The feedback from all stall holders was very positive, and the community members all agreed it was great, some even wanting one every weekend.
Thank you to all who made the effort to come out and support us and other local businesses.
Our stall holders would like to thank the community for their support. With out them, they would be able to do what they love!
The Bencubbin Community Resource Centre would like to thank all stall holders for coming and supporting our event.
We would also like to thank The community for supporting the stall holders for supporting our event.
On Wednesday evening we had invited the community to come to our showing of Cover to Cover featuring Fiona Palmer.
Fiona spoke about the difficulties of living in a small rural town, which is relevant to our community members. She also spoke about her current book, The Saddler Boys, her previous book and her next up coming book. Fiona also spoke about her role in the RRR Network.
It was great to see some of our local ladies attend this event. They enjoyed the show and it started good conversations about rural life.
Upon receiving our Seniors Week Grant, we planned an afternoon and evening out to recognise all that our seniors do in our community.
We took our seniors to Nungarin for lunch at The Woolshed Hotel, and then a look through the Nungarin Mueseam. After about 2 hours we then headed onto Merredin for afternoon tea. We enjoyed scones and jam. Then it was time to head to the Cummins Theatre for dinner and to watch the Beggers present Sing!
The show was captivating and they sung songs from various artists
Our seniors really enjoyed the event, it was great for them to be recognised in our community,
Keens Bros Truck Driving School recently offered Training and assessments for HR and MC Truck Licences. This was a huge success for the Bencubbin Community with 8 people gaining an HR licence, 12 gaining an MC truck Licence.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local farmer for allowing us the use to their trucks.
Being in a small rural community a truck licence is almost essential. Every few years there is a new generation coming up that require a licence and those who need to upgrade. We were lucky to have so many participants. With the help of advertising going into surrounding towns, we were able to boost the numbers.
