Young children in Uralla Shire can enjoy a morning of free activities when The Trader Store hosts a water-themed storytime event on Wednesday 24 March from 10am.
Children aged three to five and their parents or carers are invited to the event, which is part of ZNet Uralla’s Let’s Talk About Water initiative to encourage community discussion about water security for the shire.
“Parents and carers can enjoy a complimentary coffee from The Traders Store while their kids listen to stories and participate in free crafts and other activities about water,” ZNet Uralla President Sandra Eady said.
The Let’s Talk About Water project has included a series of community events to enable Uralla Shire residents and business people to share their opinions about possible options for improved water security.
“Many people have participated in workshops and hundreds have completed the community survey, to help identify community values about these options and help produce a ‘water blueprint’ for greater water security,” Ms Eady said.
“The storytime event is a fun opportunity for more people to share their thoughts. It can be difficult for parents to find time to participate in community conversations, so here’s a chance while the kids are being entertained.”
Parents and carers can register for the event by emailing water(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)zneturalla.org.au or phoning 0474 297790.
To give even more opportunity for people to participate in the conversation on water, the community survey can now be completed online. The survey will be open for input until 31 August.
