City to welcome its newest residents

Dubbo Regional Council will welcome new comers to the city at the popular Dubbo New Residents’ Night to be held Thursday 9 November 2017, at the Macquarie Regional Library from 6pm.

Council’s Manager Economic Development and Marketing, Josie Howard, said that Council has been hosting this event since May 2012 and was excited to continue the tradition of welcoming new residents to the City.

“Held twice a year, this event has proved immensely popular and has successfully connected hundreds of residents with their new community,” Ms Howard said.

The welcome functions are free and family-friendly providing the opportunity for attendees to meet other new Dubbo residents over light refreshments in a social, casual atmosphere.

“This is a perfect opportunity for new residents to learn of the breadth of services and facilities that Dubbo and Dubbo Regional Council can provide,” she said.

Ms Howard said the event also provided a platform for community groups to speak to new residents and potentially attract new members or volunteers.

“In 2018, the event will be established in Wellington to welcome new comers to the neighbourhood,” Ms Howard said.
