Tour: A tourist coach from Queensland is in Wingham for three nights taking in the sights. The group of over 55's has taken the tour with Cross Country Tours with Wingham as the main destination. The group flew to Sydney from Brisbane yesterday and travelled by coach to stay at the Golf Club Motor Inn. The tour is the first of two making its way to the Golf Club Motor Inn this week.

Protest class: Peaceful direct action skills will be taught at a workshop in Wingham to equip members of the community with the knowledge to organise protest events. Manning Clean Water Action Group will host the event on Saturday May 24 and it will feature instruction by Steve Phillips from Lock The Gate Alliance.

Inspection: An eroded part of the Manning riverbank has been restored as a result of a collaborative approach between MidCoast Water, Hunter Local Land Services and local landholders. The site of the old town water intake at Bootawa has now been stablilised, the bank reshaped and the area replanted - and members of the community have a chance to see the works next Thursday, May 22 when the site will be open for community inspection.

Tea: The Wingham Anglican Church Hall is the venue for a Biggest Morning Tea event raising funds for the Cancer Council. Wednesday May 21 at 10.30am. Gold coin donation. All welcome.
