Roads and bridges:  Major road links and two important bridges in the Manning Valley region will be replaced with the assistance of $10 million in Australian Government funding. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said this contribution would greatly assist the Greater Taree City Council to deliver the Taree Roads and Bridges Package. 

Tumbling: Two internationally renowned performers were in Wingham this week teaching local teens to tumble. Organised by Manning Valley Neighbourhood Services and faciliated by Jill Watkins of Circartus, the workshops provided a fun and expressive way for the youngsters to use their energy.

Warning: The NSW Rural Fire Service Mid Coast District is urging property owners on the Mid North Coast to exercise extreme care with any burning activities over the next few days with high fire dangers fueled by strong winds over the remainder of this week. "We are asking any property owners to delay burning until more favourable conditions with little wind early next week" said Inspector Guy Duckworth

White Ribbon Night: Wingham Public School will participate in White Ribbon Night and has signed up for the 'Breaking the Silence' campaign. White Ribbon Night invites communities across Australia to unite in support of bringing an end to violence against women by having a night in to get the word out about the importance of standing up to end violence against women.

White Ribbon Night 2014 is on Friday July 25.
