“We’re so fortunate in our region to boast a community from an amazingly diverse range of backgrounds and cultures, however many in our region may know little about each other’s rich cultures,” Cr Healy said.
“Our Community Dinner and the Cultural Diversity webinar next week are the perfect opportunities to literally sample and get a taste for other cultures, as well as learn more about the wonderfully diverse make up of or community.”
