By RICHARD DAVISON
It's about empowering people to make a
difference, and creating a lasting small town
legacy to the benefit of all.
Let's show them what we've got.
That's the rallying cry from Clutha
District Council community support
and development advisor Jean
Proctor, co-ordinator of next month's
New Zealand Small Town Confer-
Mrs Proctor said most of the
planning for Balclutha to success-
fully host th annual national
conference from September 25 to 27
was now in place, with only some
final finishing touches to apply.
In particular, she wanted to hear
from those wishing to volunteer in
support of the district hosting the
conference, and more early bird
''This is a fantastic opportunity not
just for local businesses and
community groups, but for every
Clutha resident to share knowledge
and resources with other New
Zealand small towns and each
other,'' she said.
''We've got an excellent variety of
local, national and international
speakers presenting over the week-
end, with around 100 delegates
expected at Rosebank Lodge from
across New Zealand and Australia,
so we need to give them a warm,
Openings remained for those wish-
ing to volunteer as event welcomers
and hosts, drivers, and within other
Tourist operators could also capital-
ise on the influx of visitors carrying
a positive message about Clutha
back to their towns, she said.
It would be the sixth annual event of
its kind, of which Mrs Proctor had
attended all but one.
''Personally, I've found it to be an
amazing forum for meeting like-
minded people, and forming invalu-
able support networks across the
country. It's about empowering
people to make a difference, and
creating a lasting small town legacy
to the benefit of all.''
Early bird registrations, which go
into a draw for a Samsung Galaxy
Tab 2 donated by Johnstone
Electrical, close on Monday.
