    I have watched the Wingello Community Recover meeting and presenttaions by all recovery groups forming in Council. In terms of Economic Recovery, a number of artists have been impacted and supporting their ability to recover their practices, and to encourage the area as a great arts destination is vitally important - not only for the impacted the communities but the cultural wellbeing of the region as well. Please forward this email to Steve Rosa.

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. This message has been passed on to Steve Rosa who advised that Council is aware that sectors such as the Arts have been severely impacted and the Wingecarribee Economic Recovery Subcommittee will be working on actions and support programs to activate business recovery across all business sectors over the coming weeks and months.
